[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]: 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)[reply]

[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.

[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).

George Orwell III (talk) 00:07, 23 August 2014 (UTC)[reply]

I'd recommend performing the filtering in JavaScript code outside the button insertion code. For example, if ($('body:not(.ns-8, .ns-828)').length) { ..insertButton.. }. Krinkle (talk) 03:24, 16 April 2018 (UTC)[reply]

[HELP NEEDED FOR INSTALLATION]: Help needed for using AnonymousI18N in gomwiki[edit]

Type Help needed for installation
Setup unknown
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...)

[QUESTION]: Pause[edit]

Type Question
Setup Google Chrome, Chrome OS
Tool RTRC / Pause
  What is the Pause slider for? And how do you pause, because sliding that slider makes no difference to me.

--Mr. Guye (talk) 18:45, 9 April 2017 (UTC) Mention me when you respond.[reply]

@Mr. Guye: By default, RTRC automatically checks for newer changes and adds them to the display. Activating "Pause" pauses this functionality so that the list stays the way it is. This can be helpful when you want to take time to analyse the list of changes. Krinkle (talk) 03:33, 16 April 2018 (UTC)[reply]

[FEATURE]: Callback problem[edit]

Type Feature
Setup Wikisource / Firefox / Linux Mint
Tool My vector.js
  Hi Krinkle

I'm trying to use your tool 'krInsertWikiEditorButton', it works very fine, I can see the buttons I've added, the one which inserts and appens text around the selected text is ok but the one which has a callback seems doing nothing. It's very difficult to have a good view of what is possible in customizing WikiEditor for Vector. So I nned help if possible.

Names of projects in GUC[edit]

Type Suggestion
Setup unknown
Tool Global user contributions
  Maybe names of projects (listed as wikisections), for example, could be token from Wikimedia Project Names on Translatewiki. I believe it would be more clear view and faster reading/searching.

Besides, maybe a button for interface language selection could be added. And a direct link on Translatewiki at the bottom like Edit Counter (EC) has it (I didn't know until recently that the tool is translatable). Wish you all the best, --Janezdrilc (talk) 09:26, 19 July 2018 (UTC)[reply]

  Hi. Previously you have played with enWS's MediaWiki:Gadget-massdelete.js. I was hoping to use this as a xwiki tool from my global.js, however, I cannot get it functioning through expected calling with RL. In fact I was going to do a clean-up at etWS, so I copied the gadget there and set it up, and I couldn't get the Special:MassDelete page to show. Are you able to tell me what I am doing wrong. Thanks if you can.

  Good evening, I wanted to ask if it was possible to customize the gadget in the local wiki (?) .. it would be interesting to keep the autodiff predefined, rather than having to activate it voluntarily. It would be possible? It would make this gadget easier to use, with fewer buttons to press! Anyway, congratulations for the excellent job! If I can give advice, which is linked to the question I asked before, would it be possible to add the "Remember selection for future searches" button? It would make it even more complete!
