#2189 closed enhancement (worksforme)

wiki 'recent changes' display

Description

The wiki 'recent changes' display is rather sparse. Just shows which pages have changed. Surely it should at least include change comments (provides an added incentive for people to bother filling in a comment there)

But some other info would be handy on there too: The exact time of the change, and a convenient link to the 'diff' of the most recent change (standard in MediaWiki, MoinMoin, Twiki and various other wiki software)

See related #2165: there, I explain that we should not turn the Recent Changes into another Timeline view, but instead use that link (renamed to Last Change) to quickly access the latest change for that wiki page.

Replying to Harry Wood:

Change comments as well as author info would require an implementation a bit more complex and expensive than what we have now. Not sure it would be worth the effort, as that kind of information can be retrieved from the Timeline. If you're looking at the RecentChanges as an Index By Date, (which it really is, see comment:ticket:2165:4), that sort of information is not really needed anyway.

But some other info would be handy on there too: The exact time of the change, and a convenient link to the 'diff' of the most recent change (standard in MediaWiki, MoinMoin, Twiki and various other wiki software)

For convenience, however, that diff link has been recently added (see r3483).

For me, we could now close this as worksforme. Other opinions?

No other opinions, fine ;)
