Turn on MediaWiki:Gadget-CategoryAboveBelowImage.js[edit]


See discussion: Can someone please turn this on per default? --El Grafo (talk) 07:49, 17 June 2015 (UTC)

@El Grafo: Please file a request on phabricator:. This needs a integration in MediaWiki to avoid Jumping Content. --Steinsplitter (talk) 10:48, 17 June 2015 (UTC)

Would someone please:

Thank you —TheDJ (talkcontribs) 13:50, 23 January 2017 (UTC)

@TheDJ: I see you are importing stuff from which is a third party service, thus i have privacy concerns regarding that. The script is also importing stuff from your own userspace. If those two issues are resolved i am happy to crate the gadget. --Steinsplitter (talk) 13:53, 23 January 2017 (UTC)
if you have concerns about tracking that is happening at, you should report that with the foundation, since that kind of tracking would be illegal per the terms of usage of the labs infrastructure. If someone wants to copy those scripts into MediaWiki namespace to avoid having to import them from toollabs or from my user space, they are welcome to do so, but since that requires administrative powers, there is little assistance that I can provide in that area. Either is fine with me. —TheDJ (talkcontribs) 14:11, 23 January 2017 (UTC)

Screenshot of MoreMenu script.png

Hello! I'd like to propose adding the MoreMenu gadget to Commons. For Vector users, it adds up to two dropdown menus ("Page" and "User") containing links to relevant logs, uploads, external tools, and admin/checkuser/oversight functions. There is an older script designed for Monobook but I'm not sure how well it would work here on Commons.

I feel this would be a nifty tool for many users, especially admins. If you'd like to test it out, you can add the following your vector.js:


The source of the gadget itself would the same, loading it from the English Wikipedia, that way you get all the updates.

Assuming the script will live at MediaWiki:Gadget-MoreMenu.js, the gadget definition would be along the lines of:

* MoreMenu[ResourceLoader|skins=vector|dependencies=mediawiki.api,mediawiki.util,user.options]|MoreMenu.js

And the description could be something like:

[[meta:MoreMenu|MoreMenu]]: add Page and User dropdown menus to the toolbar with links to common tasks, analytic tools and logs (Vector skin only)

linking to the documentation at meta:MoreMenu.

Thanks for your consideration MusikAnimal talk 02:11, 18 April 2017 (UTC)

I don't find the script useful for my admin-work. Anyway, @Steinsplitter: for more info. --Hedwig in Washington (mail?) 02:49, 9 May 2017 (UTC)
 Not done Not much interest from anybody else. --Hedwig in Washington (mail?) 03:39, 20 July 2017 (UTC)

Dark-Vector skin[edit]

Hello, what do you think about to install the Dark-Vector skin⁉ PS: You can try out it on Commons Beta, seems not fully perfect but usable as opt-in. PPS: I mean it looks much better as the black skin installed on the EnWP. -- User: Perhelion 19:37, 19 October 2017 (UTC)

Adding a gadget to make all tables sortable?[edit]

Don't know if simply adding the "sortable" class to a table post-load is enough, or if scripts apply the sorting event handler once on page load, but I'd like to see an official interface gadget that allows users to make tables sortable that weren't explicitly declared unsortable or sortable.

WikiMiniAtlas is down[edit]

{{Sudo}} Hi commons admins. meta:WikiMiniAtlas is down due to phab:T185797; I suggest disabling the default load of

WikiMiniAtlas [ResourceLoader|default]|WikiMiniAtlas.js
To prevent readers from ending in an error screen when clicking on the icons until this can be repaired. — xaosflux Talk 16:27, 27 January 2018 (UTC)
