Description Bjarte Sorensen 2005-04-02 13:14:55 UTC
Recentchangeslinked only list the *last* change to a given page, whereas
recentchanges lists *all* changes to a given article within the specified number
of recent changes shown.

If recentchangeslinked is to be used to watch page changes closely it would be
advantageous that the behaviour was the same as for recentchanges.
Comment 1 Bjarte Sorensen 2005-04-13 08:10:24 UTC
Addon: The enhancement as described for Special:Recentchangeslinked also applies
to Special:Watchlist, as you would also expect this to have the same behaviour
as Special:Recentchanges. Bjarte
Comment 2 Rob Church 2006-07-04 09:41:23 UTC
Users can now elect to view an expanded watchlist in their preferences.
Comment 3 Interiot 2006-08-02 17:13:41 UTC
It's pretty silly, but it's not too hard to write an external HTML filter that
causes only the latest revision for each page to be displayed.  Here's one
example that works, in lieu of this feature being officially implemented.

As far as I can see it's implemented since $MONTHs. I close this bug as FIXED.
Comment 5 Interiot 2007-03-05 17:56:54 UTC
It's not fixed, the behavior is still as comment #0 described.  (in
Special:Recentchangeslinked, there is no option to make it display only the LAST
diff for each page...  it will only display EVERY diff for each page)
Comment 6 Kenneth Jorgensen 2007-03-22 16:58:54 UTC
I would personally to see a feature like the external script from comment #3 be
implemented into Special:Recentchanges, so it would only show the last edit from
each page, just like Special:Watchlist does. In the projects I'm doing, this
feature would be really helpful to keep on top of discussions in talk pages.
Comment 7 Siebrand Mazeland 2009-02-02 12:39:26 UTC
Changed component to "RecentChanges"

You can use enhanced recent changes and it'll fold all changes to the same page on the same day into one. This gets pretty close to achieving what you're asking for except for the fact that it doesn't group across days (which is something I really would've liked to see back in the day that I still kept up on RC on a smaller wiki)
