Description Mike.lifeguard 2010-04-04 23:19:40 UTC
Like it says on the tin.

This is useful for people who like having such things in their footers. More importantly, it might be useful when tweaking performance settings so you don't have to constantly open the page source and sift through the HTML.
Comment 1 MZMcBride 2010-04-04 23:32:22 UTC
Dynamic content in the footer seems like it would do bad things to cache. This also seems like a feature that would get very little use and might be better served as a live hack for sites wanting it (especially if its use will only be temporary and be only by users who are already tweaking performance).

It is in the HTML one way or another - how does it matter whether it is visible or not?
Comment 3 Chad H. 2010-04-05 12:08:58 UTC
It's not a caching issue, but I really don't see the need.
Comment 4 Platonides 2011-05-15 00:13:15 UTC
It's easy to do with a little of javascript. I don't think it's really worth putting in the page.
See as an example (it replaces the logout link with that info).
Comment 5 Krinkle 2014-06-06 04:05:23 UTC
During development this can be displayed in the (much more advanced) Debug toolbar via $wgDebugToolbar.

In production, this HTML comment is now a javascript variable that can be accessed to your liking from mw.config (without hacking around with comment nodes in the DOM).


I agree with Chad and don't see a need for implementing a way to display just the response time somewhere visibly rendered in the page HTML.
