ArchiveTool allows for the easy archiving of talk pages on your wiki.


Select single lines, sections or the whole talk page simply by clicking.
Simply hit the "archive" button, select the lines/sections you want to archive, then hit "save".
Multi-language support
Supports ISO 639-1 localization.



If you would like to change the options, insert the following above the script import:

window.ArchiveToolConfig = { 
   archiveListTemplate: 'Archives',
   archivePageTemplate: 'Archivepage',
   archiveSubpage: 'Archive',
   userLang: true

For an explanation of the available options, see "Options" below.

Please note that the ArchiveList template requires the DynamicPageList extension to be enabled on your wiki and this script automatically assumes it is present. You can find out if this extension is enabled by searching for "DynamicPageList" on Special:Version at your wiki. If it is not present, you will need to contact Wikia to request that it be enabled, otherwise the ArchiveList template will not generate any results and display raw code.


The name of the template that will be placed on top of the talk page, linking to the different archives.
The name of the template that will be placed on top of the archive page, explaining that it is an archive.
The subpage name of archived pages on your wiki. For example, setting this to "Storage" would mean archived talk pages on your wiki are named "Talk:Example/Storage 1" etc.
By default, the script tries to display messages in the following languages:
  1. The user's language (specified in his/her preferences)
  2. The wiki's content language
  3. English if there are no messages in a desired language.
You can disable this by setting the userLang option to false.
