Changing watchlist settings

A good way to help people stay involved is to set the default so that any page a user creates or edits gets added to their watchlist.

Add the following to LocalSettings:

$wgDefaultUserOptions ['watchcreations'] = true;
$wgDefaultUserOptions ['watchdefault']   = true;
$wgDefaultUserOptions ['watchmoves']     = true;
$wgDefaultUserOptions ['watchdeletion']  = true;

DPL alternative

If DPL is installed (and results are not cached), whole categories an be watched (useful when using subpages).
