Help:Bragging

The Dynamic Page Lists (DPL) extension allows users to create lists of pages according to their search criteria. When you've been here a while & created zillions of articles you'll probably want to brag on your user page. Just use the following:

<dpl>
createdby = (Username)
namespace =
</dpl>

The username should be exactly as displayed in the upper right corner (case-sensitive); otherwise your inquiry will fail. The namespace, if left blank, will show all mainspace articles (that's because namespace = (empty) is interpreted as mainspace only. For example, to refer to the Template namespace, simply type: namespace = template

You can omit the "namespace" line but you will then have every page you've ever created including talk pages (as well as every liquidthreads comment you've ever made) listed. This can be a little "over the top".

You can sort by more than one namespace in the list by using the pipe (|) to separate them.

For example: namespace = Conservapedia|Debate|Essay|Fun|RationalWiki|Recipe would search in all those namespaces. For instance, namespace=|Conservapedia gives the mainspace (called by the empty before the pipe, |) and Conservapedia.

If you follow the above, you will find that the pages are listed in alphabetic order, to list by creation date, insert the line ordermethod = firstedit.
