The "Related changes" feature lists all recent changes (before MediaWiki 1.5: only the last) in each article linked to from the current page, but not more than the number specified in the preferences. Its header is "Recent changes" with subheader "(to pages linked from "xxx")".

Assessment | Biopsychology | Comparative | Cognitive | Developmental | Language | Individual differences | Personality | Philosophy | Social |
Methods | Statistics | Clinical | Educational | Industrial | Professional items | World psychology |

Psychology: Debates · Journals · Psychologists


This feature can be used to set up custom-watchlist-like functionality. It behaves like a watchlist which would contain every page linked to from the current page, but with the important difference that all changes are listed, not just the last one. On the other hand, Related Changes does not automatically include talk pages; to watch also the corresponding talk pages, links to them also have to be in the page on which Related Changes is applied.

Options

The option "Hide minor edits" that can be set in the preferences applies among other things to Related Changes.

See also hide minor edits.

Caveats

Note that for links to redirects, only a change in the redirect is given, not a change in the target article. In this regard a direct link to the target article is superior.

The "Related changes" feature neither lists changes in images or sound files nor in image description pages (regardless of which of the three linking methods (image, :image or media) is used.

When applying the feature to a subpage, the automatic link to the parent page is ignored, i.e., changes in the parent page are not listed unless there is also an explicit link to it.

Wikipedia-specific help

Template:Ph:Related changes


This page is a copy of the master help page at Meta (for general help information all Wikimedia projects can use), with two Wikipedia-specific templates inserted. To update the main text, edit the master help page for all projects at m:Help:Related changes. For Wikipedia-specific issues, use Template:Ph:Related changes (the extra text at the bottom of this page) or Template:Phh:Related changes for a Wikipedia-specific lead (text appears at the top of this page). You are welcome to copy the exact wikitext from the master page at Meta and paste it into this page at any time. To view this page in other languages see the master page at Meta.
