I get the impression that in MediaWiki there are two main groups of non-article and non-talk web pages:

  1. Special web pages (like special:categories)
  2. Media-Wiki System web pages (like media-wiki:common.css).

While I can see a list of all special web pages under special:special_pages, I miss where I can find a list of media-wiki:media_wiki_pages (like media-wiki:common.css).
Where could I find such list?


Use Special:AllPages with the namespace filter set to MediaWiki. Or use the search box for a prefix search.

  • Yeah, it does both. Or maybe I'm misunderstanding what you are after. – Tgr May 20 '19 at 12:40
  • Hello ! I don't need a list of all pages but a list of all the "special-but-not defined-as-special" web pages (like media-wiki:common.css). This file (media-wiki:common.css) is an example for a system file that I just won't find under Special:special_pages; but I do need a list containing only "such" system files. – JohnDoea May 20 '19 at 19:22
  • MediaWiki:Common.css is a page. As such Special:AllPages does find it. – Tgr May 21 '19 at 14:33
