This script is for PERSONAL use only!

You are free to install this script for yourself, but it is not allowed to be used wiki-wide (e.g., in MediaWiki:Common.js or MediaWiki:Wikia.js), as it would violate Fandom's Terms of Use.
(See the customization policy)

PageCreator (not to be confused with the similar MediaWiki extension) provides details regarding a page's creator and date of creation. It was initially conceived as an extension of the LastEdited script, and as such shares the same design, but it may be employed on its own.

It was designed for use on wikis dedicated to user-generated content where editing other users' pages might be prohibited. The script will provide content details on the Main, Project, MediaWiki, Template, and Category namespaces by default if no custom selection is indicated.


An avatar and timestamp may be added, namespaces customized at will, and UTC/local timezone preferences notated through the addition of a window object.

Variables Type Valid values Default value(s)

For example:

window.pageCreatorConfig = {
    namespaces: [4, 8],
    useAvatar: true,
    useTimestamp: true,
    useUTC: false,
    useTimeago: true,
    avatarsize: 12


  • namespaces can be set to the string "all" to enable PageCreator on all namespaces without needing add every namespace id.
  • useTimeago will not work on UCP wikis due to the fact that $.timeago returns undefined even when passed well-formed timestamps or new Date instances.


Addition of UCP support, addition of avatarsize config option per LastEdited, general cleanup/rewrite
Retrofitting of I18n-js, alteration of config options
Cleanup, i18n expansion, method changes
Slight cleanup/expansion of user options
Local/UTC timezone options available
Removed Help namespace in favor of Project/Sitename
User-inputted namespaces accepted
