New tabs[edit]

Hi, DannyS712. I can't find somehow the talk page we're talking there all the time. If I find it, I'll move this topic over there. I can see that now you open all the links in the new tabs. If so, my css selectors for diff links will not work any longer. Is there a chance I can ask you to add some arbitrary css class on diff links, so I could use it as the new selector? Thank you, IKhitron (talk) 16:37, 3 May 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Sure, Symbol wait.svg Doing... --DannyS712 (talk) 16:41, 3 May 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Yes check.svg Done - class is globalWatchlist-diff --DannyS712 (talk) 16:45, 3 May 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thanks a lot! IKhitron (talk) 13:07, 4 May 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]


Hello again. I met a couple of situations when I'd like to run some private javascript code on the global watchlist. But everything I tried to catch the right moment did not work, because you are using it by yourself. Most of the times nothing happens, and sometimes I get infinite loop - my code waits for you to finish and vice versa. I'm not a fan of timers that try something all the time until it happens. Is there a way that you'll provide a hook each time after output complete, reload or refresh, so some code could run just after that, or some similar solution? Thank you.

Sorry, didn't see this. I'll try to take a look soon --DannyS712 (talk) 01:47, 30 May 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Bad sites[edit]

@DannyS712: On a private fork, I was trying to add support for but didn't succeed. Is it achievable, with the current code? NMaia (talk) 06:49, 20 September 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@NMaia I do not believe it is, no DannyS712 (talk) 15:28, 20 September 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]


Hi, DannyS712. Does this mean there is a way I can try the new extension? IKhitron (talk) 23:24, 18 November 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

It is now available at (though its not working at the moment due to unrelated issues) DannyS712 (talk) 23:27, 18 November 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thanks, DannyS712. Indeed. But as I can see, one can't check it properly because it does not have an access to "real" wikis. IKhitron (talk) 00:30, 19 November 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Correct - it shows your watchlist on the beta cluster wikis DannyS712 (talk) 00:31, 19 November 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Open changed pages at once?[edit]

Hello, DannyS712. I am using Global Watchlist 24/7, because it is convenient, but I wonder if it would be possible to add a button to each wiki header with which all changes will be opened at once. Now I have to click every single change, return to Global watchlist, and click another changed page, etc. etc. If all changes of any wiki could be opened in new tabs at once (perhaps with a maximum of say ten), that would be great, at least to me, but probably to others too.

Sorry, I'm not currently working on improving the user script, since I'm working to create a MediaWiki extension to replace it instead DannyS712 (talk) 05:36, 1 February 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Ah, right. Well, all the better, I guess. Eissink (talk) 07:53, 1 February 2021 (UTC).Reply[reply]


Hi, DannyS712. I understand the new extension will be on Meta in 47 hours. Congrajulations. Is there a link on Special:Watchlist, as in the script, in all wikis? IKhitron (talk) 17:50, 1 February 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

No, it will only be linked from the watchlist on meta DannyS712 (talk) 19:17, 1 February 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
A pity. Thanks. IKhitron (talk) 19:34, 1 February 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
