[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 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]

Setup unknown
  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]

Setup unknown
  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)

[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]: 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
  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
  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.

[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)

[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 or 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).

Type Suggestion

  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

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)

  Hello Krinkle, first I would like to thank you very much for this tool. It's been many years that WMCA is trying to deal with this issue for anon users. Without a cookie French visitors were always falling back on the English version of the page...

Tool AnonymousI18N
  Hello Krinkle, we have recently tried installing AnonymousI18N in . The Phabricator task will give you an idea of whats happened thus far. When we initially copied the code with all the languages to Common.js, it was working fine. However, we wanted to have only gom-latn and gom-deva in the list, so we left only these two in the list of available languages, but this didn't work (AnonymousI18N did not load) (Attempt 1). Then we tried adding en to the list, this also did not work (Attempt 2). Finally, we tried keeping gom instead of gom-deva, this didn't work either (Attempt 3). Please could you help solve this?

[BUG]: RTL compatibility[edit]

Type Bug
Setup activate gadget on RTL wiki
  latest change taught left-hand-side menu to be "shy", i.e., retreat left under some conditions. unfortunately, this functionality screws up the gadget for RTL wikis, as the menu actually "advances" instead of retreat - with RTL wikis the menu is on the right-hand side, and transforming left cause it to overshadow the list itself (note: this was reported by another user - i'm just the messenger, and am not familiar with the pre-change behavior, i just saw the problem after the change. for now, the user works around the issue with personal css, using !important, to cancel the transformation).

(sorry for reporting here and not on github - apparently, reporting an issue on github requires a github account, which is a bit much for the moment...)
