Hello everyone, I'm new here at FANDOM and I don't know many things, recently I have tried to see the changes in a wiki but I cannot. Is there a way to see all the changes that have been made to a wiki?
The question is why you would need every single change that has happened on a wiki since its creation. Wikis like this one have had millions and millions of edits (excluding log items), and Special:RecentChanges could usually provide you with the last relevant changes on a wiki.
You can see the page history for individual pages, and contributions per user. You can also offset the date on Recent Changes.
Pages have limits for a reason. Some wikis have been around since 2006. Having a page that listed all contributions would crash the servers. And would take days if not weeks to read yet teach you nothing that existing pages can't.
That depends on your wiki. On the old Legacy system, you could access it by clicking the date in the Recent Changes field, and then changing the date in the url. I'm not sure how it works in the post-March 11 UCP wikis.
Just so the information is part of the thread, Special:RecentChanges is currently limited to 3 months (~92 days). There where points in the past where it was as low as 2 months and as high as 4 months. You can get all logevents and revisions using the API but, if I recall correctly, stats such as the change in the page size are not calculated. Also, the number of results per api request is limited; so you would need to accumulate results over multiple api requests.
You can use the api to get revisions by revid. There are a bunch that happen just due to wiki setup. However, as Fandyllic said, the first edit to the main page is usually one of the first changes. So you can start there and work backwards to find the first non-set-up change.
