Only global.css?

Is there a reason only Special:MyPage/global.css is mentioned as a place to use this feature? -- Fandyllic (talk · contr) 5:49 PM PST 21 Aug 2010

Not Global

Is there a way to restrict the highlighting code to Wiki Activity, Recent Changes and history pages only? Leviathan_89 12:50, August 12, 2011 (UTC)

There are 2 sort of ways:
  1. Grab the code (not the import) and copy it 2 times (not possible with history)
    To the first copy you will add
    to the beggining of each class/id call.
    Repeat the same for the other copy
  2. The other option is to call it by JavaScript
 if ( wgCanonicalSpecialPageName === 'WikiActivity' || wgCanonicalSpecialPageName === 'Recentchanges' || wgAction === 'history') {
 	importStylesheetPage('Highlight/code.css', 'dev');
Thought the drawback is. If the user has disable its JS the names will not be highlight.

Thank you, that will be helpful. You should add this suggestion to the page as well. Leviathan_89 00:24, September 7, 2011 (UTC)

Can I add the first solution for WikiActivity and Recent changes and the java one for history? Of course I will use different pages (I won't import from dev wiki). Leviathan_89 00:27, September 7, 2011 (UTC)

The script doesn't work... Leviathan_89 20:36, September 7, 2011 (UTC)

I brought up the question here. Leviathan_89 21:26, September 7, 2011 (UTC)

Can you show me where you did/test it? --Cizagna (DiscusiΓ³n) β€’ Helper β€’ Central hispana 09:18, 13 September 2011 (UTC)

Problem solved, my bad, I didn't add my wiki to the code

importStylesheetPage('MediaWiki:Common.css/highlight.css', 'MYWIKI');

I thought I didn't have to do that if the CSS was on my wiki. Anyway I suggest this solution to whoever use this type of code, this way only the link in those pages are "marked" otherwise every links (tabs, signatures,...) will be marked. Leviathan_89 09:49, September 14, 2011 (UTC)

New version

I propose to change the present selector



a.mw-userlink[href$=":USERNAME"], .subtle a[href$=":USERNAME"], .edited-by a[href$=":USERNAME"]

This way we will achieve two things:

  1. The code will work for non-English wikis as well.
  2. The code will apply only in RecentChanges, WikiActivity and history pages.

It's a bit more complicated, though. leviathan_89 13:36, July 10, 2012 (UTC)

I have no idea who the maintainer for this is, but you can use this JavaScript instead of importing the CSS directly to get that effect. This will make the CSS work on languages other than English without being tricked by things like /wiki/User:Random_UserName_With_Colon:DaNASCAT. This script is only worth using for your global.js though, you'd be better off just doing a copy/paste/change for a Wiki's site CSS.

// Restrict to WikiActivity/History/RecentChanges
window.HighlightCssHack = function(css) {
	return css.replace(
		'.mw-userlink$1, .activityfeed a$1'

(function(window, document, $, mw) {
	"use strict";
	var css, expiry,
	    console = window.console || { error: $.noop },
	    store = $.storage || { get: $.noop, set: $.noop };
	if (!mw) mw = { config: { get: function(p) { return window[p]; } } };

	function installCss(css) {
		var s = document.createElement('style');
		s.setAttribute('type', 'text/css');
		if (!s.styleSheet) s.appendChild(document.createTextNode(css));
		else s.styleSheet = css;

	// Cached CSS to avoid hammering the server with repeated AJAX
	css = store.get('HighlightCssHack');
	if (css && typeof(css.expire) === 'number' && typeof(css.data) === 'string') {
		expiry = css.expire - (new Date()).getTime();
		if (expiry > 0 && expiry < 24*60*60*1000) {
			// NOTE: We're assuming the DOM's head node is available
			// It should be since we wouldn't be running otherwise.

	// Data is not cached. We need to AJAX and process it.
	// NOTE: The maxage/smaxage parameters are useless because the callback
	//    part of the URL is replaced with a unique string every time by
	//    jQuery which means the browser's cache is bypassed 100% of the time
	var pageid = 2160; // MediaWiki PageId for Highlight/code.css
		url: 'http://dev.wikia.com' + mw.config.get('wgScriptPath') + '/api' + mw.config.get('wgScriptExtension') + '?callback=?',
		data: {
			format: 'json',
			action: 'query',
			//titles: 'Highlight/code.css',
			pageids: pageid,
			prop: 'revisions',
			rvprop: 'content',
			rvlimit: 1
		dataType: 'jsonp',
		success: processHighlightCss,
		error: function(o,s,m) { console.error('Could not load Highlight.css', s, m); }
	function processHighlightCss(data) {
		var css = data.query.pages[pageid].revisions[0]['*'];

		// Adapt the CSS to work on non-English Wikis (2 is id for User:)
		css = css.replace(
			'$1' + mw.config.get('wgFormattedNamespaces')[2] + ':'
		if (typeof(window.HighlightCssHack) === 'function') {
			css = window.HighlightCssHack(css);

		// Apply CSS and cache it so we don't have to refetch it
		store.set('HighlightCssHack', {
			expire: (new Date()).getTime() + 24*60*60*1000,
			data: css
})(window, document, jQuery, window.mediaWiki);

On an interesting side note, the current CSS doesn't work for red-link users either since the href will have ?action=edit&redlink=1 on the end which breaks the attribute match when they haven't set up a user profile page on the Wiki. Lunarity 13:30, August 24, 2012 (UTC)

I'm currently using this version which is a bit complicated, but it works regardless the language and even with red-links. It's true that will get a false-positive if an username ends with colon + STAFFUSERNAME, but I doubt it even exist. I prefer using CSS only if possible, but thanks for the code, it's useful. leviathan_89


Is it allowed if I use this code wiki-wide? Thanks. Guppie the Third wallβ€’contribs 06:39, August 10, 2013 (UTC)

I agree with Vanguards being added to highlight. -- Cube-shaped garbage can 21:55, December 20, 2016 (UTC)
Support adding them. --Sophie 02:29, December 21, 2016 (UTC)
Since I've heard no complaints, I've added Vanguard to the list. Since Helpers are a higher tier volunteer group than Vanguard, I've placed the list above the Helpers list. In the case of Yatalu, who is both a Helper and Vanguard, this should result in the Vanguard color being overwritten by the Helper color. CoH☎ 12:05, January 3, 2017 (UTC)


Should the code.css page be moved to the MediaWiki namespace? --Sophie 07:55, November 29, 2016 (UTC)

No, because that would break CSS pages of everybody using the stylesheet. -- Cube-shaped garbage can 16:31, February 7, 2017 (UTC)
Doesn't it redirect tho? Highlight/code.css -> MediaWiki:Highlight/code.css? --Sophie 00:37, April 15, 2017 (UTC)
Through load.php, no. Through index.php, no. Although we could make a redirect with @import like we do with importScriptPage on code pages. -- Cube-shaped garbage can 04:47, April 15, 2017 (UTC)

This page seems to indicate that Helpers are a higher-tier global rights group than VSTF. As such, I believe the Helpers section should be moved below the VSTF section but above the Staff section. Similarly, I believe the list should be expanded to include voldev members.

If no one has any issues with this, I'm going to reorder the list accordingly. CoH β˜Ž 16:27, February 7, 2017 (UTC)

Voldev highlight would look like
a[href$=":Monchoman45"] {color: yourcolor !important;}
if we remove JCel and TK-999 for already being in other user groups. Yeah, I guess you could reorder it. -- Cube-shaped garbage can 16:31, February 7, 2017 (UTC)
Added and reordered. I left the duplicates in there for completeness' sake if nothing else. Feel free to change that if you want. CoH β˜Ž 16:48, February 7, 2017 (UTC)

Global Discussions Moderators

Per this, Global D-Mods will be a global group very soon, & per this, the group will be prioritized over VSTF. So, when the group rolls out, should we include that group above Helpers & below VSTF in the stylesheet? What color should we use? Red #F00 seems like it might go well, primarily because red is one of the only primary colors we haven’t used yet.

I can understand not including them too, as their colors would be seen only outside of their area of control (CSS doesn’t work in Discussions), but I think VolDevs set the precedent for coloring them anyway, & they can still block users outside of Discussions.

LGTM, but idk about red, since redlinks. --Sophie 10:56, August 20, 2017 (UTC)
I wasn’t sure on red either, but I figured since redlinks are actually a dull red while this would be brighter, I assumed it wouldn’t matter. Nevertheless I’d be glad to hear any other color recommendations, & assuming we decide on one, I’ll try to write the CSS for it once the group comes online (unless someone else is active first of course).

Yeah red was a bad idea, I just couldn’t think of anything else at the time. What about this (#00FFD0)?
UrsuulTalkCMDate10:37 PM Sunday, August 20, 2017 (UTC)

Actually wait I just scrolled down and saw that I'm not the first to bring that up sorry americhino talk 10:45, August 22, 2017 (UTC)
That’s alright, it’s hard to get another solid color because we’re frankly running out of primaries. If you have another color idea I’d love to hear it, but looking at it myself it appears sufficiently different from Vanguard & VolDev, although perhaps people with partial colorblindness might have trouble distinguishing it (then again I suppose that if they’re partially colorblind this is 100% not the stylesheet for them).
UrsuulTalkCMDate10:47 AM Tuesday, August 22, 2017 (UTC)
Actually, compare the three colors side by side, are they not easily distinguishable?

How about #FFA500 or #FF1493? Orange seems much too similar to the Staff color, but pink might work.
UrsuulTalkCMDate11:09 AM Wednesday, August 23, 2017 (UTC)
I thought the colours further down the page would cancel out the colours further up the page. So if a user was a VSTF, Helper, and Staff then the Staff colour would show up, and if a user was a VSTF and Helper, then the Helper colour would show up. At least those are the results in a relatable situation when I duplicated a bit of some CSS on my wiki with a different output by mistake. And the CSS at the top was ignored and the duplicate CSS further down was what was displayed on my wiki as a result. ― C.Syde (talk | contribs) 06:51, August 23, 2017 (UTC)
Yes that is how CSS works. More highly prioritized rights are placed lower on the stylesheet so that those rights take color precedence.

w:Special:Log/rights shows four different users promoted to Global Discussions Mod, but two are tests. Should we color them now or wait for a members page to be drafted?
UrsuulTalkCMDate4:51 PM Monday, August 21, 2017 (UTC)

I thought all four of them are tests? They all have 0 edits and GlobalEditcount also says they have 0 global edits. -- Cube-shaped garbage can 16:53, August 21, 2017 (UTC)
Nvm then, I didn’t check their global edit count (usually these global discussions moderators don’t have many edits but thousands of Discussions posts). That said, if we see what looks like legitimate promotions should we go ahead & do it? Or should we wait for a membership page to be drafted? I assume since no one objected to #00FFD0 that it will be color & that it will be below VSTF.

The promotions are done, I added a list (hopefully I didn’t make too many mistakes) & I went with this (#00FFD0) as the color, since no one replied what they felt about orange or pink & most people were grudgingly accepting of the teal. It of course can be changed down the road, or immediately if people want to keep discussing it.

Color deficit solution note

Hey lads, just noting that I swapped the bot colors out to be used on the newfangled Global Discussions Moderator group because consensus couldn’t be reached amongst the Mods on the Slack channel. Bots have been given a bright red (to avoid them looking like redlinks) because they are lower priority than Global Discussions Mods. If anyone would like to discuss that decision or suggest another color scheme I would be happy to hear it, I ask only that we avoid edit warring on the code page & that we not make any more changes until we have discussed it fully.

Can we add a thing so that it is easier to identify who is a VSTF, who is a helper etc.? I know this is for coloring the names of these users, but I think it would be nice to identify what they are with their specific colors.

A Suggested Improvement

The Diep.io wiki has a stylesheet in many ways identical to this one. It colors users who are in global user groups with the exact same colors this one does. However, it has a couple of key advantages:

  1. Support for PseudoTalkPages.
  2. Hover styling.

What do you think about merging these two? ~TheGoldenPatrik1 (Talk) 17:06, February 4, 2018 (UTC)


Staff have added two users to the ConVol group & I think we need to decide on a color for them in this stylesheet. Any recommendations?

Maybe red? ~TheGoldenPatrik1 (Talk) 19:08, March 14, 2018 (UTC)
Both 8B0 and 8B0000 look good to me. ~TheGoldenPatrik1 (Talk) 01:57, March 15, 2018 (UTC)
I had numerous complaints last time I used reds back when we chose GDM colors, primarily due to the similarity to redlinks. I’m personally ok with red, but I think some folks won’t like it. I hope for more people to speak up now rather than having to run around like a headless chicken fielding complaints later.

Personally, I like the red better than the yellowgreen, but that's just me.

To avoid confusion with red links for not created user pages, I would prefer a different color personally.--35?cb=20130911015810Raintalk 20:03, March 15, 2018 (UTC)
Makes sense. We could maybe do indigo...? ~TheGoldenPatrik1 (Talk) 02:12, March 16, 2018 (UTC)

Helper color

Just a note that I'll be updating the Helper color from β—Ό#4c5f1d to β—Ό#bf6240 - if there's any issues, feel free to gripe here and I'll probs revert. β€’ speedy β€’ πŸ””︎ β€’ πŸš€︎ β€’ 11:57, July 4, 2018 (UTC)

How does your red compare to the redlinks color? --Sophie 02:43, July 8, 2018 (UTC)
Personally not a big fan; may be either the shade of brown or my own habit, but it is truer to β€œbrown”.

I’m also not a fan of this new color, the older version stood out on more Wikis & heck, it even seemed an appropriate shade for the group itself

Agreed. Patrik 19:10, August 11, 2018 (UTC)


Could the : be removed, which would allow contribs links (and maybe others?) to be highlighted as well. --Sophie 02:42, July 8, 2018 (UTC)

Could it be added back? It is making so many things the highlight color now it is kinda excessive. ~ty 01:33, July 15, 2018 (UTC)
How would you suggest highlighting contribs and etc then? --Sophie 02:11, July 15, 2018 (UTC)
Not worry about it as per the norm since the stylesheet's creation. ~ty 02:14, July 15, 2018 (UTC)


I understand HighlightUsers exists, but would it be possible to automate this while still basing it in CSS? Perhaps via the use of a bot that automatically updates the stylesheet based upon rights changes? We could still have the speed of CSS while still enjoying the hands-off nature of JS automation if we went that route.
UrsuulTalkCMDate7:08 PM Saturday, August 11, 2018 (UTC)

That could possibly work for global user groups (I don't really know), but the bots section would have to be updated manually (excepting global bots). Patrik 19:19, August 11, 2018 (UTC)

Content Volunteer Highlight

Hello, I think that the Content Volunteer Highlight is too similar to the VSTF highlight. It makes quickly telling which mildly difficult. Any chance the color could be changed? image 22px-Logo.svg.png22?cb=20160405123310 22?cb=20170831223041 08:21, October 25, 2018 (UTC)

I always though it wasn't easy to read on light wikis. Perhaps it could be changed from light coral to pastel/MD (material design) red, but one shade lighter? Or maybe β—Ό#FF1744.
(Bearing in mind dark and light wikis use this stylesheet sitewide.) β€’ speedy β€’ πŸ””︎ β€’ πŸš€︎ β€’ 17:47, October 25, 2018 (UTC)
That color is more different, but at the same time it also makes the page look like a red link. I think we should just get fandom to remove some global groups so we don't have to have so many colors. 22px-Logo.svg.png22?cb=20160405123310 22?cb=20170831223041 07:51, October 26, 2018 (UTC)

Helper Color

Earlier, the helper color was changed from dark green to brown. I've asked around and pretty much everyone dislikes the brown color and prefers the dark green, so what do you guys think about changing it back? Patrik 17:39, October 25, 2018 (UTC)

I agree for reverting the color. ~Signed JustLeafy ( Ν‘| ͜' Ν‘| )USER - WALL • 17:44, October 25, 2018 (UTC)
Strong oppose - it will look like this for colorblind people, since Highlight's used in sitewide CSS in places, and it uses !important. Although I would be okay with the change if the styles weren't allowed sitewide. β€’ speedy β€’ πŸ””︎ β€’ πŸš€︎ β€’ 18:18, October 25, 2018 (UTC)
I have an alternative color to suggest - #008970. Isn't perfect, but will definitely stand out more on dark wikis.
We may need to edit the Vanguard color slightly tho - it's #1eaf7a at the moment. β€’ speedy β€’ πŸ””︎ β€’ πŸš€︎ β€’ 18:47, October 25, 2018 (UTC)
Do you have any other alternative colors? The one you suggest is nearly identical to the Vanguard color so we would have to change that one too. I'd much rather just change the Helper color to something other than brown. Patrik 19:36, October 25, 2018 (UTC)

Excuse me. This is my opinion : Both dark green or brown are ugly. The color for VSTF is beautiful and lovely pink. That's unfair!πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚I just notice this when I became a helper. (Of course, this is just my view.) May we find another color for helper group? 16ζœΊζ™Ίηš„ε°ι±Όε›βš‘οΈ(η»™ζˆ‘η•™θ¨€)14:02, February 1, 2019 (UTC)

Sounds like a legitimate concern to me, this being the second time the 'colors issue' is brought up. In other words; "Me too."β€”RyaNayR (talk β€’ contribs) 21:07, February 01, 2019 (UTC)
