Actions

Actions are tools that work on a page or the whole wiki, but unlike macros do not add to the page content when viewing a page, but work on that page content. They either produce some output based on page contents (navigational actions like searching) or implement functions that are not related to viewing a page (like deleting or renaming a page).

The following actions are added to the list of user-defined extension actions at the bottom of each page (or in the "More actions" menu). This happens to any mixed-case extension, for other actions (all lower-case) see the list further down this page. Some of these action might not be available for your wiki site.

Action

Description

Remark

AttachFile


attach files to a page, see /AttachFile for more details.

DeletePage


Delete a page, after you confirmed it; deletion means a final backup copy is created and only then the page is deleted, i.e. you can revive the page later on (as long as the backups are not physically deleted).

RenamePage


Rename a page, after you confirmed it.

LikePages


list pages whose title starts or ends with the same WikiWord as the current page title.

LocalSiteMap


show nearby links of the current page, i.e. list all referred-to pages, and in turn their references, to a certain limited depth.

The following is a list of internal actions that are used to implement the various icons and links at the top and bottom of pages, or supplement certain macros.

Action

Description

Remark

titleindex


Implements the listing of all page names as text (append ?action=titleindex to your wiki address) or XML (?action=titleindex&mimetype=text/xml); the main use of this action is to enable MetaWiki.

fullsearch


this action is triggered by clicking on the "Search Text" button of the FullSearch macro (?action=fullsearch&value=HelpOnActions).

titlesearch


this action is triggered by clicking on the "Search Titles" button of the TitleSearch macro (?action=titlesearch&value=HelpOnActions).

inlinesearch


this implements an inline search form (note that this uses POST requests, so you won't normally see this action in URLs).

highlight


highlight the search word when you click on a link in a search result list.

diff


display differences between page revisions.

info


show meta-data on a page.

recall


display an older revision of a page.

edit


edit this page.

savepage


save this page (do not ever use this manually).

bookmark


set bookmark for RecentChanges.

raw


send the raw wiki markup as text/plain (e.g. for backup purposes via wget); SystemInfo?action=raw will show the markup of SystemInfo.

format


emit specially formatted views of a page. Parameter mimetype specifies the wanted mime-type.

rss_rc


generate a RSS feed of RecentChanges.

chart


display charts.

content


for transclusion into static web pages, this action emits the pure page content, without any <html>, <head>, or <body> tags.

links


generates a list of all pages and the links on them, just like LinkDatabase.

sitemap


generates a Google XML sitemap, see Sitemap protocol

xmlrpc


Wiki XML-RPC interface, see XmlRpcToWiki.
