ExtendedStatistics provides an analytic view of many relevant parameters on the wiki, providing wiki administrators better insight into the usage of the wiki.

ExtendedStatistics can be accessed from the pages Special:ExtendedStatistics and Special:AggregatedStatistic.

For the Snapshot statistics (=AggregatedStatistic) to return any data, the following cronjob needs to run:

In crontab -e:

0 1 * * * php <path-to-wiki>/extensions/BlueSpiceExtendedStatistics/maintenance/generateSnapshot.php --interval=day --skip-timecheck

It offers analysis of many aspects of wiki, like:

  • Number of users.
  • Number of pages.
  • Edits per user.
  • Search queries and more.

This data can be filtered:

  • By defining the period (from and to date).
  • Granulation (interval to show on diagram - day, week, month, year).
  • Type (absolute, aggregate and list modes).
  • Additional filters depending of the data being represented.

Some aspects of this extension can be configured with the Config manager, under ExtendedStatistics. Here, wiki administrators can configure:

  • the users to exclude from statistical analysis
  • the maximum number of interval steps
