CodeQuickLinks creates a rail module with quick links to the user's local JavaScript and CSS files, the user's Community Central global JS and CSS files, the wiki's MediaWiki pages, and Special:JSPages.

This script was intended to be installed in a user's global.js file, but it may also be implemented locally or on a site-wide level, depending on the needs of the user.

Advanced customization

Rather than use the default links set, users may incorporate a link set of their own or add additional links to the default set via the inclusion of a window.customCodeQuickLinks object placed prior to the script's import.

The boolean replaceAllDefaultLinks field, by default set to false, allows users to display only their custom link selection without any of the defaults if set to true. The showIcon boolean, set to true by default, allows for the display of a WDS-style icon beside the module title, similar to the design of the modernized rail modules. The linkSet object contains the properly-formatted links for inclusion. An example is displayed below:

window.customCodeQuickLinks= {
    replaceAllDefaultLinks: true,
    showIcon: false,
    linkSet: {
        siteFiles: [
                name: "JSPages",
                href: "/wiki/Special:JSPages"
                name: "ImportJS",
                href: "/wiki/MediaWiki:ImportJS"
        userFiles: [
                name: "Global.js",
                href: "//"
                name: "Global.css",
                href: "//"


Importing multiple scripts? This quick guide shows how to combine the imports.
  • For site-wide use, an administrator can add the line below to the wiki's MediaWiki:ImportJS page.
  • For personal use, add the code snippet below to your global.js page (for use on all wikis) or your common.js page on your wiki (for use on a single wiki). Note that personal JS must be enabled for your account.
