Inserts the latest changes in order.

Parameters: #

  • since=n : show changes from the last n days.
  • format=(full|compact) : if "full", then display a long
version with all possible info. If "compact", then be as compact as possible.

Example: #

The following example inserts the changes from the past 2 days in a full format.
 
[{INSERT RecentChangesPlugin since=2, format=full}] 
And here they are:

Here is the same list in compact format:

Design Requests #

1) customizable formats #

The date and time formats are hard-coded in the following lines in the plugin.
 
SimpleDateFormat fmt = new SimpleDateFormat( "dd.MM.yyyy" ); 
SimpleDateFormat tfmt = new SimpleDateFormat( "HH:mm:ss" ); 
The request is to have the formats be customizable, either via parameters to the plugin or via global properties.

2) Another request: zebratable view #

Recent changes is one of the most important tools for users, and its display is very poor and cannot be customized. I would like to be able to change it to a zebratable with minimal space between table rows (currently huge table spacing is applied). -- Also the note above "lines in the plugin" is unclear to me -- where can I change the plugin lines? I searched the entire folder with the JSPWiki installation and cannot find these lines. -- Gregor Hagedorn, 24.8.2005

3) Specify pages #

what about a parameter 'page' to specify one or more pages that we would like to see the recent changes. This is somewhow a watch page list. --Adler In the same idea, is it possible to filter the result for one user (or wiki group)? This is somehow a egocentric plugin “recent changes made by UserABC” -- Patrick A. (like anonymous)

4) Limit #

parameter to limit the number of results --Adler

5) Watch List #

what about defining a page with links to all pages you want to follow up / watch. Then this plugin, RecentChangesPlugin, could look into that page you defined and display only a list of the recent changes of those pages. Example:
 
__MyWatchPage__ 
linkToPage1 
linkToPage2 
linkToPage2 
 
__MyPersonalPage__ 
 
* My watch list 
[{RecentChangesPlugin since=2, watchlist='MyWatchPage'}] 
that would display something like (assuming that only 1 page was changed within 1 day)
 
__MyPersonalPage__ 
 
* My watch list 
[linkToPage1] 20:25:46 Author Name 
 
--Adler Is this example correct? Because i don't have the function with watchlist, it doesn't work! Greetings from Germany ;-) Here is an example, how i made it: MyWatchPage

5) Default value #

should be there a default value? and if since=all, it should display for ever... This default value could be definied in the jspwiki.properties --Adler since=all would just display every edit for every page, which is out of scope for a "Recent Changes" plugin --JMyers
I started using JSPlugin to generate the contents of RecentChanges in table format - which you can wrap in the sortable and table-filter wiki markup.
See JSPluginRecentChangesExample for details. --Nascif Abousalh-Neto, 25-Aug-2006 JSPWikiCorePlugins

Is it possible to exclude a page?

Recent Created Pages what about a list of newly created pages (not changes)? --CCardone
A New Page would actually mean a recently changed page with only one version.
These pages would only show up if they are created correctly the first time. In most cases, new pages are edited a few times after their first creation, so these would not show up then.
But maybe you mean something else with a "New Page" ? --HarryMetske, 04-Dec-2007
