[FEATURE]: Add option to Show/Hide redirects[edit]

Type Feature
Setup unknown
Tool User:Krinkle/Tools/WhatLeavesHere.js
  I think it would be useful to have an indication of wich pages are redirects in the list created by your script, and also an option to show/hide them, as we have on Special:WhatLinksHere.

[FEATURE]: WikiEditor: It works and adding to the advanced section?[edit]

Type Feature
Setup unknown
Tool User:Krinkle/Scripts/InsertWikiEditorButton
  Thanks. I have it working for one, and now I will look to build for more. Some of the buttons that I will be creating for enWS would fit comfortably into the "Advanced" section, with the new script is there a means to place something into the subsidiary toolbars?

billinghurst sDrewth 09:04, 14 June 2011 (UTC)

Addendum, I am also trying to get it to run some of the js from proofread.js and I am presuming that it is the callback function (it isn't documented), but the useless toad at my end of the keyboard cannot work it out. Thanks. billinghurst sDrewth 12:51, 19 June 2011 (UTC)
Thanks for the work that you did on the upgrades to the script. Very much appreciated Sir Krinkle. Gnome-face-monkey.svg billinghurst sDrewth 10:43, 20 June 2011 (UTC)

[BUG (?)]: RTRC and Twinkle[edit]

Type Bug (?)
Setup unknown
Tool User:Krinkle/Tools/Real-Time Recent Changes
  Hey, Krinkle. I'm not sure if it is a problem; perhaps it's something already predicted or maybe I just did something wrong. When I used RTRC on en.wiki it worked correctly, but all Twinkle tabs just disappeared and I could not use it. Is it normal?

Teles (Talk @ C S) 23:36, 20 June 2011 (UTC)

Did they not appear within RTRC, or did they stop working on regular diff pages? If they aren't appearing within RTRC, that's normal (Twinkle only adds them when a diff page loads, RTRC is not a diff page, and is flipping through them dynamically without refreshing) and will be possible once issue #9 is resolved). If they stopped working outside RTRC, please let me know. –Krinkletalk 00:43, 3 October 2013 (UTC)

[FEATURE]: Improved namespace selection[edit]

Type FEATURE
Setup unknown
Tool RTRC
  A user from Portuguese Wikipedia suggested the addition of a way to select pages not in user/user talk namespaces. Would it be possible to provide some checkboxes in the interface to achieve this? Or maybe a text field accepting a list of namespace numbers, together with a "invert selection" checkbox.

[FEATURE]: Watchlist[edit]

Type FEATURE
Setup unknown
Tool RTRC
  A user requested a feature similar to the RTRC for use on Watchlists. Would it be feasible? Maybe the current RTRC could have an option to filter "watched pages only".

Helder 15:17, 30 July 2011 (UTC)

The RecentChanges API doesn't provide this ability, however once RTRC switches to using a live stream instead of API polling (e.g. wikitech:RCStream), it will be able to do client-side filtering based on your watchlist (and not just your watchlist, we can use any list, e.g. the CVN Watchlist, or a certain category or intersection that you could build on the spot). –Krinkletalk 02:16, 16 May 2014 (UTC)

[BUG]: Fix function test[edit]

Type Bug
Setup unknown
Tool insertVectorButtons
  Woldn't be better to use jQuery.isFunction( callbackFunc ) instead of "typeof callbackFunc == 'function'"?

BTW: when I opened this page in http to add this comment, I got two edit-intros above my edit box. Do you know how to fix that? Helder 20:34, 7 October 2011 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done. I removed the typeof check in the latest revision. The double editnotice was triggered by manually including it in the url, which is redundant since it is automatically included from /Editnotice. Removing it from the url fixes it. –Krinkletalk 00:41, 5 June 2014 (UTC)

[FEATURE]: Configuration options[edit]

Type Feature
Setup N/A
Tool WhatLeavesHere
  Gday Krinkle. Been using WhatLeavesHere at enWP, after using it in other places, and it is useful for spam fighting. I would like to see the ability to have some configuration for its use at enWP to hide some of the templates. Looking at w:en:Special:WhatLeavesHere?target=List_of_As_Told_by_Ginger_episodes it picks up Templates and I think that for the general user this will be confusing. So a tweak so that by user you can set it up in a configuration file as per the popups, or whether there is a click twist that turns on configs and remembers one's settings, with certain things being default off. Anyway, just thoughts, thanks for listening and especially thanks for your tools and your assistance.

[SUGGESTION]: Search icon padding[edit]

Type Suggestion
Setup Firefox Aurora 12
Tool VectorSearchNav
  I got another suggestion, but his is only about aesthetics.

Add #searchButton { padding-right: 1.2em !important } to the line where the CSS is added. It'll make the icon looks better :) Locos epraix 02:46, 4 March 2012 (UTC)

[BUG]: SpecialAbuseLog_HistLink.js[edit]

Type Bug
Setup FF12/Win7
Tool SpecialAbuseLog_HistLink.js
  It seems that this tool doesn't work. Tested on sr.wp and meta.

Actually, it works here, but not here. Can you, please, make some changes? micki 07:47, 19 May 2012 (UTC)

[SUGGESTION]: A few suggestions for the recent changes tool[edit]

Type Suggestion
Setup unknown
Tool User:Krinkle/Tools/Real-Time Recent Changes
  After using the tool for a while, I've felt that there could be a few extra details that can be added (some more possible than others of course, but they are just suggestions).
  • A way to undo/rollback through the script without it opening a new page (if the user doesn't want it they can just do some type of variable = 0 on their common.js); If an undo/rollback was given, an option is available so you can warn the user (similar to Huggle), but allows you to enter a custom message (since all wiki's are different of course).
  • Things from the Special:Log to be viewed to, either in a smaller separate section or in the main view
  • If something new appears in Special:NewFiles, it loads the previous image as the old revision and the uploaded image as the new one. (If this special page isn't possible to operate with, Special:Log/upload might be possible too)..
  • If one of the edits is a tagged change from Special:Tags, in front of the time either * for the tags or change/add-on to !. Then whatever the tag was after the edit, like so (not properly spaced, but still gives a main idea):

(diff)  *  01:32 Article     • T • C • Vandal     Adding important info   [ Possible Vandalism ]

  • In a show/hide under the revision, a preview of the new page revision is shown to immediately see if an error occurred with the new revision, without having to leave the script.

These are just some small things that I thought should be added. :)

[SUGGESTION]: Translations for AjaxPatrolLinks[edit]

Type Suggestion
Setup Not relevant.
Tool User:Krinkle/Scripts/AjaxPatrolLinks
  Just a suggestion. It would be good if the messages "Marking as patrolled..." and "Marked as patrolled" could be translated into some languages so when it's used outside non-English wikis editors do understand what the script is saying. Also, I've installed the tool as a gadget on es.wikibooks :-) Thanks.

[MINOR THING]: It comes weird on Minecraft Wiki[edit]

Type This script on Minecraft Wiki
Setup Google Chrome, Windows XP SP3
Tool RTRC
  I tried this script on Minecraft Wiki, but it comes out really weird. And I can barely click the buttons, and it is impossible to type in the boxes. Do you mind making a version which hides the User and talk tabs, and maybe even the user options type thing at the top? Thanks!!!

[SUGGESTION]: Storing options[edit]

Type Suggestion
Setup unknown
Tool RTRC
  It could be useful to store some preferences with MediaWiki's Options API; custom settings should be stored on Meta-Wiki and retrieved from there, starting with userjs- and with max. 255 bytes. For example, userjs-RTRC-filter-anons = 1 etc.

[FEATURE]: multi-wiki RC[edit]

Type Feature
Setup All All
Tool RTRC
  it could fetch RecentChanges from several wikis, and output them in a single window, allowing users (especially those at SWMT) a clean overview across many projects.

--Ricordisamoa 04:23, 2 July 2013 (UTC)

+1.
+2 if the list of wikis can be defined by the user. Helder 13:47, 2 July 2013 (UTC)

[BUG]: Undefined delimiter[edit]

Type Bug
Setup unknown
Tool InsertWikiEditorButton
  Since the 'delimiter' and the 'position' are optional, I think $.extend({...}) should be $.extend(true, {...}), because if I specify
autoSummary: {
	summary: '<test>'
}

and click in the button two times, I get "<test>undefined<test>" in the summary, due to the missing delimiter. Helder 20:50, 7 August 2013 (UTC)

[OTHER]: Use new hook "ext.lqt.textareaCreated"[edit]

[HELP]: help for translation[edit]

Type Help
Setup unknown
Tool whatleaveshere
  Hi, I am an Italian wikiquote user, and I would like to translate whatleaveshere gadget into Italian. Is it possible? Some words are already translated, how can I change them? Others are in English (leaves, categories, external links...) how can I translate them? Thank you!

FRacco (talk) 18:37, 31 October 2013 (UTC)

Once WhatLeavesHere has been converted to use the Intuition framework, you can translate it via translatewiki.net. Follow issue https://github.com/Krinkle/mw-gadget-whatleaveshere/issues/2 for more information. –Krinkletalk 00:33, 5 June 2014 (UTC)

[HELP REQUEST]: I get Blank Page when following the instructions[edit]

Type Help request
Setup Mac OS. Safari, Firefox
Tool Global_SUL
  I appear to be a new enWP user, but this is an account I have usuerped formall;y as an alternate account. I have, I hope, followed the steps User:Krinkle/Tools/Global_SUL, but don't discount idiocy on my part!

When I go to either https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Special:BlankPage/globalsul or https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:BlankPage/globalsul I get:

Blank page

This page is intentionally left blank.

But the instruction line: "Now browse to "Special:BlankPage/globalsul" and follow the instructions." implies that there are instructions to follow. So I am rather lost. My home wiki is the English Wikipedia.

As you can imagine, I do not visit Meta much. I have arrived here after a conversation at en:User_talk:Timtrent#Your_usurp_request. That is my normal talk page and the very best place to contact me.

If I am being stupid/naive/newbie, I am not going to be very surprised. What I woudl like to know, please, is "Have I done it right?" Fiddle Faddle (talk) 15:51, 10 February 2014 (UTC)

[FEATURE]: Request inclusion of filters parameter already in found in WikiEditor extension[edit]

Type Feature
Setup All
Tool User:Krinkle/Scripts/InsertWikiEditorButton
  If you examine the WikiEditor module jquery.wikiEditor.toolbar.config.js, specifically the section dealing with the 'reference' button, you'll find the 'filters': parameter & setting...
				'filters': [ 'body.ns-subject' ],

When set, this allows/limits the inclusion/exclusion of the associated button's generation to specific namespaces. In this case, the button inserting REF tags is limited to appearing only in subject-spaces.

				'filters': [ 'body.ns-4, body.ns-talk' ],

In the above case, the associated button is limited to appearing in only the talk-namespaces plus the Project: namespace (the solution to the signature button appearing in the main namespace bug btw).

				'filters': [ 'body:not(.ns-8, .ns-828)' ],

In the above example, the associated button will appear in all namespaces except the MediaWiki: & Module: namespaces.


Could you (@Krinkle:) please port this parameter over to your script somehow so this ability is possible under it too? Thanks in advance (best reply to Wikisource as well).

[SUGGESTION]: line feed etc.[edit]

Type Suggestion
Setup unknown
Tool InsertWikiEditorButton
  perhaps it would be helpful to find informations about special characters for linefeed etc (I found out that is \n) or a link to a page explaning that

for example I used InsertWikiEditorButton in de:User:Kai.pedia/common.js for several description-buttons (inserting a wikipedia-link around the marked word in several languages)

or a button named {{}} (inserting e new description line/language - for this a looked for the linefeed-character...) Kai.pedia (talk) 15:51, 29 August 2014 (UTC)
