New gadget

Did you ever want to see on a log page the images listed as uploaded? MediaWiki by default just shows the (linked) filename...

Enter MediaWiki:Gadget-PrettyLog.js. Activating this gadget gives the log pages a layout similar to that of the search result pages, including small image thumbnails! If you also have MediaWiki:Gadget-GalleryDetails.js activated, you can then even get extended information on the images.

Tested so far only on Firefox 3 and IE 6. Please report any problems here, stating which browser and skin you're using, and on which page exactly the problem occurred. Lupo 15:42, 27 January 2009 (UTC)

IE 6 seems to have some troubles when loading this script initially. I had to force reloads several times and even clear the "temporary internet files" to get it to finally load and run this. I hope nobody but me still uses IE 6... even I only have it around for testing.) Lupo 15:42, 27 January 2009 (UTC)
Before I start playing around with it... how different is it from Special:NewFiles? Giggy (talk) 14:17, 28 January 2009 (UTC)
It works on log pages, not on Special:Newfiles. On all log pages, including user-specific logs. AFAIK, we have no easy way to view all uploads of a user, do we? (Except the external gallery tool...) For instance, it works on Special:Log/Gframesch. To preview it without activating the gadget, use e.g. this link. Lupo 14:26, 28 January 2009 (UTC)

GIF thumbnails

Unlike other file types GIF thumbnails are not displayed (example). --Leyo 15:06, 17 April 2010 (UTC)
