Recent changes shows the latest changes to articles, file uploads, deletions and page moves

MediaWiki offers a collection of special pages and tools to keep track of what is going on in the wiki. So you can watch for example:

In the menu on top it offers a collection of links to customize your display: limit the number of changes shown, the number of days or restrict it to edits to a certain namespace. You can also hide edits marked as minor (don't forget that major changes can be flagged by a user as minor anyway).

One line in recentchanges consists of several links:
