Hi, I understand how to SUBST a template so the result of the template code is inserted into the page, but can you do that with Special: links?

eg: If I want to display my statistics on my profile page, I want the result of Special:Editcount/DarkMoonRising to be embedded on my Profile page.{{Special:Editcount/DarkMoonRising}} only returns a single number - the total edits on that wikia.

What I'm after is essentially the equivalent of: [[SUBST:Special:Editcount/DarkMoonRising]]

You'd need a "magic word" to exist in MediaWiki for this to work - I don't think there is such a magic word so this isn't possible -- RandomTime 18:45, June 28, 2012 (UTC)
If you are just trying to display your edit count you can use this Userbox/Template. -- JoshuaCoalskullTalk 20:14, June 28, 2012 (UTC)
{{Userbox
|id={{Special:Editcount/DarkMoonRising}}
|info= DarkMoonRising has made {{Special:Editcount/DarkMoonRising}} edits on this Wiki.
}}

Which makes:

91 DarkMoonRising has made 91 edits on this Wiki.
