Description Cameron Moody 2008-07-01 02:15:37 UTC
When performing transclusion of Special: pages it works fine, however if limits are added a wanted page link appears. IE {{Special:Recentchanges}} works, however for example, if I put {{Special:Recentchanges&days=5}} I get a link to an empty page called Special:Recentchanges&days=5. I have tried for Special:Recentchanges as well as Special:Newpages with various criteria (such as days and also result limits).
Comment 1 Danny B. 2008-07-12 00:15:47 UTC
Limit of number of items can be done via {{Special:NewPages/50}}, {{Special:RecentChanges/100}}.
Comment 2 Niklas Laxström 2008-07-12 07:44:36 UTC
Indeed, the inclusion syntax is different, no bug here.
Comment 3 Cameron Moody 2008-07-24 03:09:08 UTC
Thanks for the info - I couldn't find anything documented that explained the syntax being different.

If you don't mind, is there a way of not having filter on ARTICLE Numbers, but on DAYS? Using the NewPages/50 appears to show 50 last new articles, the need I have is last 7 days (unlimited articles).

[No one seems to know the answer to her question, so marking reopened until we get an answer. :-)]
Comment 5 OverlordQ 2008-12-20 05:32:20 UTC
You can specify days with RecentChanges:

{{Special:RecentChanges/days=7}} But that will likely limit to whatever the default is set to, so you'll need to specify a higher limit. Although I'd really suggest against it, it's probably not too server friendly.


NewPages doesn't seem to have such an option to limit by days and has a hard limit of 5k.

This is all OT to the original bug report though.
Comment 6 John Mark Vandenberg 2008-12-20 07:12:18 UTC
While this doesnt answer the question, I have started documented the syntax at:

It is possible to use "offset" to indicate which day to begin the list on, so the following would give you up to 500 unpatrolled pages from the last 7 days.


You can see it working at [[User:Jayvdb/NPP7]].
