New pages is a special page that lists recently created pages in reverse order of creation, with creation date and time, current size, user who created the page, and first edit summary. It also provides links to patrol these new pages when that feature is enabled.
The ability to filter by user was added in bugzilla:6448.
This special page can be transcluded, with the first unnamed parameter specifying how many entries should be displayed.
Additional parameters may be used in a comma separated list such as:
|limit||integer||Number of entries to display|
|offset||date||Date to begin the list of entries|
|namespace||string||Restrict the results to the named namespace|
|hideliu||Hide logged in users (LIU)|
|hidepatrolled||Only show pages which have not been patrolled.|
|shownav||Display result navigation links above and beneath the results, i.e,|
"(Latest | Earliest) View (newer 5) (older 5) (20 | 50 | 100 | 250 | 500)"
