For "tags" on global masterheads, see UserTags.
MessageWallUserTags allows you to add a customizable "tag" to names which appears at the top of Message Wall posts from specified users. It can be used to mark messages by admins, bureaucrats, founder, etc. It can also be used for any other purpose, such as user-of-the-month, etc.

Note: This script will work with the Fandom forum system as well.



To add this script on your wiki, place the following code into your MediaWiki:Common.js, and change 'user1', 'user2' etc to the names of users you want tagged, and 'usergroup' etc to the text you want to appear, such as Admin, etc:

window.MessageWallUserTags = {
    tagColor: 'red',
    txtSize: '10px',
    glow: true,
    glowSize: '15px',
    glowColor: '#f77',
    users: {
        'username': 'usergroup',
        'User1': 'Founder',
        'User2': 'Bureaucrat',
        'User3': 'Admin',
        'User4': 'Rollback',
        'User5': 'Custom Tag'

There are also several other options you can tweak, such as the color of the tag (tagColor), whether or not it will glow as well as the size and color of the glow (glow, glowSize, and glowColor).

You may also specify multiple tags per user, like so:

window.MessageWallUserTags = {
    //...other options...
    users: {
        'username': 'Bureaucrat • Admin • Something Else',

They can be separated by bullets, commas, or any other character of your choosing.

If you have usernames with spaces in them, replace the spaces with underscores ( _ ). Be sure that each name and group/text has quotes around it, and a comma at the end of each line except for the last line. If a name contains an apostrophe ('), you will need to surround that name with double-quotes (") instead of single-quotes (').


All updates and improvements are welcomed! If you make any major changes please list them below in descending order (newest on top).
