Description Jamie Hari 2006-11-13 21:40:10 UTC
I can think of a few great examples where making {{NUMBEROFARTICLES}} &
{{NUMBEROFFILES}} able to pull cross-wiki would be great!

First Possible Usage:
The newly created Dutch version of my website solely uses a shared image
repository from the English version; Because of this, it will always reflect '0'

Second Possible Usage:
Near the bottom of my English main page, I list the other non-English versions
of our site. These article totals are static and need to be manually updated at
milestone markers. (100, 1000, 10000, etc)
This solution would make this section fully dynamic.

Third Possible Usage:
This international landing page could be made fully dynamic. (Somewhat like
example 2, but an example that the Wikipedia folk would enjoy)

My thought for a solution would be to parse the appropriate raw data from this page:

My only concern: Are these raw statistics cached in any way? If they aren't, it
might be an additional load on my 'Dutch Database' when my 'English Database'
main page is loaded.

Could this not be done in a similar fashion as with  $wgEnableScaryTranscluding ? We could invalidate the cache once per week or month or something.
