MDN has a number of "special" pages; these are pages which aren't editable wiki pages, but instead provide information about the site or allow basic maintenance tasks to be performed. This guide briefly describes these special pages.

- You can also specify a locale to get the top-level pages in that language specifically. For example, this link provides a list of only the English pages.
We have a few dashboards that make it quicker and easier to perform specific special tasks or locate specific information.
- Revision dashboard
- Provides access to overall MDN content history, letting you look at recent changes, locate changes to specific content areas, and more.
- Active macros
- A list of all of the macros in use on MDN, including counts of how many times they're used in both English and site-wide, with links to each macro on GitHub. Search support is also provided, along with the ability to get a list of the pages that use each macro.
