Recent changes is a [[<tvar|special-pages>Special:MyLanguage/Help:Special page|special page]] that lists recent changes in reverse order, with change date and time, change in the page size, user who created the page, and [[<tvar|edit-summary>Special:MyLanguage/Help:Edit summary|edit summary]]. It also provides links to [[<tvar|patrolled-edits>Special:MyLanguage/Help:Patrolled edits|patrol]] these new edits when that feature is enabled.

This feature is accessible at <tvar|spec-rc>Special:RecentChanges. The page results are adjustable using settings the [[<tvar|prefs-rc>Special:MyLanguage/Help:Preferences#Recent_changes|Preferences section "Recent changes"]].

This special page can be [[<tvar|transclusion>Special:MyLanguage/Help:transclusion|transcluded]], with the first unnamed parameter specifying how many entries should be displayed.


A wiki can be configured with aliases for the namespace "Special" and the title "Recent changes", and those localized versions can be used instead of the canonical ones.

Additional parameters may be used in a comma separated list such as:


Even if a wiki is configured with aliases for the namespace and title, it is not possible to use localized parameters.
