[MediaWiki-l] Watching all articles of one category

Uwe Baumbach-2
Hi there,

does anyone know a effective way to put all articles belonging to a certain category into my watch list? (without access to the servers command line)

Solutions for a one time action (to take effect on all articles just know categorized) or dynamic configuration (taking effect on later categorized articles as well) would be great!

Thx,

Uwe (Baumbach)

Here's a quick hack.

1. Generate a list of the article titles using [[Special:Export]]. (Enter a category name and click "Add".)  But DON'T EXPORT. Just generate the list.

2. Copy the titles and visit [[Special:EditWatchlist/raw]]. Paste your new information at the bottom of the list, and click "Update watchlist."
