This is the talk page for discussing improvements to the SeeMoreActivityButton page.

Diff links

Would it possible to restore the diff links as well? (they used the magnify glass icon) leviathan_89 @fandom 07:45, April 22, 2017 (UTC)

LatestActivity controller doesn't return diff information (anymore?), so it would require a few more API calls to get these links, I suppose. -- Cube-shaped garbage can 07:58, April 22, 2017 (UTC)
Nvm then. leviathan_89 @fandom 08:07, April 22, 2017 (UTC)
I'm not sure if it's an intended feature of MediaWiki, but it's possible to link to the latest diff for a particular page by adding an empty diff parameter to the URL (e.g. [1]), avoiding API call. - OneTwoThreeFall talk 08:21, April 22, 2017 (UTC)
Oh, huh. That's interesting. I guess I'll try to find the WDS icon for magifying glass and implement it. -- Cube-shaped garbage can 10:07, April 22, 2017 (UTC)
The one used on Special:WikiActivity is [2] leviathan_89 @fandom 10:38, April 22, 2017 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── Yeah, but I'd rather not use the old icon because it doesn't look very consistent (and they are probably going to remove that extension at some point). I'm trying to use WDS ones but I think I can't find the appropriate one. Magnifying glass SVG doesn't have a smaller variant so if I'm going to use it it would look like this. Other option is to use the eye SVG but for some reason it doesn't work at all for me. Any suggestions? -- Cube-shaped garbage can 11:19, April 22, 2017 (UTC)

Can you maybe download directly the svg so you will bee able to resize it as you wish? Btw (unrelated), is it possible to use those icons in wikitext? How? leviathan_89 @fandom 12:23, April 22, 2017 (UTC)

I managed to resize it in Inkscape then appended the HTML. It doesn't work with QuickDiff but somebody could fix that, I guess. I don't think it's possible to use WDS icons in wikitext yet but somebody could make a script for that. Yeah, I know there's WDSIcons but I feel that's more a library than a script for using WDS icons in wikitext. -- Cube-shaped garbage can 19:56, April 22, 2017 (UTC)


Can the text be translated into more languages? Pl: Zobacz więcej, De: Mehr ansehen.

I have this loaded in global.js as well as on a local Wiki (in ImportJS), & I have a duplicate button. Could that be fixed again?
UrsuulTalkCMDate6:53 PM Sunday, April 30, 2017 (UTC)

I think I fixed it now. -- Cube-shaped garbage can 18:55, April 30, 2017 (UTC)
UrsuulTalkCMDate8:01 PM Sunday, April 30, 2017 (UTC)

Persistent Duplicates

The JS was reviewed quite some time ago, but the duplicates still occur.
UrsuulTalkCMDate10:34 PM Tuesday, May 2, 2017 (UTC)
It was me being stupid again. It should be fixed now. -- Cube-shaped garbage can 12:13, May 4, 2017 (UTC)
Yay it works :D

On Fourms

I don't know why, but the button does not show up on the right rail when I browse through threads in my wiki.--Luma.dash (talk) 16:42, May 12, 2017 (UTC)

When imported through console, it worked for me. This part of your site JS is throwing an error:
if (mNamespaceNumber % 2 == 1 && mNamespaceNumber != 3 && !mSection && mAction !== 'submit') {
    var vText = $('#wpTextbox1').val().replace(/{\{[Tt]alk/, '{\{Talk');
    if (!vText.match('{\{Talk') && !vText.match('{\{Delete')) {
        $('#wpTextbox1').val('{\{Talk}}\n\n' + vText);
The problem is that it's trying to take the value out of
  1. wpTextbox1 input box which doesn't exist. Could you change it to
if (mNamespaceNumber % 2 == 1 && mNamespaceNumber != 3 && !mSection && mAction !== 'submit' && $('#wpTextbox1').exists()) {
    // Other stuff here...
 ? -- Cube-shaped garbage can 20:25, May 12, 2017 (UTC)
I'll do.--Luma.dash (talk) 20:52, May 12, 2017 (UTC)
Well, I tried the code in "Submit for review", but it didn't work. Could you see If I made something wrong in my revision?--Luma.dash (talk) 20:57, May 12, 2017 (UTC)
Could you go to Test mode and clear your cache? Because pasting the code from your revision in console while other site JS is disabled works. -- Cube-shaped garbage can
I still cannot see any change.:/--Luma.dash (talk) 21:10, May 12, 2017 (UTC)

When the button is nudged

I noticed that when the button is pushed down by a text, this makes it hard to click it. Making the clickable area limited to the top right part of the "See More" button. So, is it it possible to increase its clickable area in this case?--Luma.dash (talk) 19:16, June 30, 2017 (UTC)

Icons on the Left

Can you return the icons that were on the left? I'll show images on how they should be, because they would look inconsistent with the new design:

Signed JustLeafy ( ͡| ͜' ͡| ) USER WALL 08:28, August 8, 2017 (UTC)

That would be much more complicated than the script currently is. The script currently only adds the "see more" button (because that's the script title) and adds diff links next to titles (because that was easy to do and was requested). Adding icons depending on actions taken would mean the script would have to run an HTTP request to the WikiActivity API endpoint, parse it (because it's returned as HTML, not as real data) and then refill the Wiki Activity module with that information. That sounds like it should be put into a script named "ActivityModuleEnhancements", not "SeeMoreActivityButton". You could try requesting such a script on the Script Suggestions board. -- Cube-shaped garbage can 17:22, August 8, 2017 (UTC)
Alright. Thanks for the info.

Button is broken on some wikis

The see more activity button is now broken on some wikis, as of a recent update. It's been linking to "RecentChanges" instead. ― C.Syde (talk | contribs) 02:44, December 21, 2017 (UTC)

Oh never mind. Seems that I had to refresh the JavaScript page. ― C.Syde (talk | contribs) 02:53, December 21, 2017 (UTC)
Yep, it was fixed and purging the cache of code.js should fix it. noreplyz 02:55, December 21, 2017 (UTC)

Custom Images

Is it possible to change the search icon to another image in the personal code?—|| Grudgeholderr ||— 05:45, January 16, 2018 (UTC)

Try using something like this
.seemoreactivity-diff-link:before {
    content: url("");
.seemoreactivity-diff-link svg {
    display: none;
-- Cube-shaped garbage can 15:11, January 16, 2018 (UTC)
Thanks a lot! Would I be allowed to do this in community CSS?—|| Grudgeholderr ||— 01:39, January 17, 2018 (UTC)
You should be, yeah. -- Cube-shaped garbage can 06:38, January 17, 2018 (UTC)

FANDOM Redesign

Honestly I'm rather disappointed with the new design of the See More Activity Button. Is there any way to get the original style back, even as a personal script so that those who favour the old design can continue using it whilst still receiving updates to it to prevent the old design from becoming broken? ― C.Syde (talk | contribs) 03:56, July 17, 2018 (UTC)

SeeMoreActivityButton and UTC Clock
That is what it currently looks like to me, but I've checked and it does only seem to be occurring on that particular wiki and on CC, and only when browsing in incognito mode. ― C.Syde (talk | contribs)C.Syde (talk | contribs) 05:38, July 17, 2018 (UTC)
It looks fine to me, so it might be your personal code. --Sophie 05:41, July 17, 2018 (UTC)
I have the scripts imported from the dev wiki, so I seriously doubt that is the case. ― C.Syde (talk | contribs) 05:43, July 17, 2018 (UTC)
Importing this script from dev has nothing to do with your personal code affecting this script? --Sophie 05:45, July 17, 2018 (UTC)
Is this how it looks like for you on CC? -- Cube-shaped garbage can 05:47, July 17, 2018 (UTC)
And on my wiki as well. It looks rather awful. ― C.Syde (talk | contribs) 05:48, July 17, 2018 (UTC)
Not the script that looks awful there. I have a clean styling fix that I'll bake into the script by tonight.
If there's anyone doing that by CSS, please don't - you're showing non-English users inconsistent messages. speedy🔔︎🚀︎ 14:56, July 17, 2018 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── If you want to revert the changes:

  • go to MediaWiki:Custom-SeeMoreActivityButton-config-old of your wiki
  • just put true or 1 in that page
  • wait until tonight earliest (GMT)

Also Syde, I hope you didn't intend to be rude with your last comment. speedy🔔︎🚀︎ 17:10, July 17, 2018 (UTC)

Thanks a lot. Also no I wasn't trying to be rude. ― C.Syde (talk | contribs) 09:38, July 18, 2018 (UTC)
There's a problem with it still. It still doesn't look identical to how it looked before the recent updates. If you look at how the button looks here you'll see what I mean. It doesn't match the other buttons on the module. ― C.Syde (talk | contribs) 09:48, July 18, 2018 (UTC)
Thats due to your wiki's theme, you can fix that with css. --Sophie 09:56, July 18, 2018 (UTC)
.skin-oasis #wikia-recent-activity #seemoreactivity-button .wds-icon {
	fill: pink;
Nope, that didn't work. I had a feeling it wasn't going to work. :( ― C.Syde (talk | contribs) 10:05, July 18, 2018 (UTC)
You need to !important it. --Sophie 10:10, July 18, 2018 (UTC)
I tried that and it still didn't work. ― C.Syde (talk | contribs) 10:11, July 18, 2018 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── It works fine for me; try disabling your css/js/etc. --Sophie 10:14, July 18, 2018 (UTC)

Ugh. Honestly it would have been better if they'd kept the old version of this script for those wishing to stick with the old style or created an opt-in extension for those wishing to add the new style. It requires too much effort to figure out what's causing the button to do that. ― C.Syde (talk | contribs) 10:19, July 18, 2018 (UTC)
I've figured out what's causing the problem. It's the WikiaNavigationBarStyle CSS but there's no question about modifying the style-sheet so that it can't affect the "See More" button. At least not by myself. ― C.Syde (talk | contribs) 10:23, July 18, 2018 (UTC)
I fixed the button position, but the highlighted lines in your wiki CSS need to go:

  1. #seemoreactivity-button {
  2.     padding: 3px 9px !important;
  3.     margin-top: 9px !important;
  4.     margin-right: 8px !important;
  5. }

speedy🔔︎🚀︎ 10:27, July 18, 2018 (UTC)
Alright. But there's still problems being caused by the WikiaNavigationBarStyle style-sheet. It would be great if there was some way of styling the button so that the WikiaNavigationBarStyle can't conflict with it. Also it would be nice if there was a way that I could revert the new button style on wikis that I'm not an administrator on. I like to have that button on all the wikis that I'm active on. ― C.Syde (talk | contribs) 10:36, July 18, 2018 (UTC)

Sitewide Configurations

Is it possible to configure the old design using the regular method (writing window.SeeMoreActivityButtonOld = true; in the community JavaScript instead of creating a new MediaWiki page)?—|| Grudgeholderr ||— 05:39, July 20, 2018 (UTC)

It should be. It's just preferred if you do it through the MediaWiki page so you don't have to wait for content review. -- Cube-shaped garbage can 06:57, July 20, 2018 (UTC)

Not working

Anyone else having issues with this not loading occassionally? For the past few months it has sometimes required a purge edit to ImportJS to actually get it to work again, it seems to randomly not load. Monk (Bureaucrat) Talk 14:56, November 1, 2018 (UTC)

Not showing up at all

Since yesterday, the code has glitched on me and it never shows up despite installing such into my JS! This code has to be fixed; until then, I recommend you not use it! -- Ready to rock! (talk) 16:52, January 4, 2019 (UTC)

It's working for me. Are you importing the script personally or sitewidely and, if sitewidely, on which wiki? -- Cube-shaped garbage can 16:55, January 4, 2019 (UTC)
I've been using it sidewide in my global.js since last summer. I discovered it just yesterday, and it's strangely disappeared! I asked FANDOM to fix the glitch, but they never answered, and now today, it's still glitching on me! I was so upset I had to remove it. --Ready to rock! (talk) 16:57, January 4, 2019 (UTC)
You are importing View Source above SeeMoreActivityButton, which was recently broken and fixed, but probably still was causing errors for you at the time you removed SeeMoreActivityButton from your imports. View Source fix is still awaiting review, but try importing SeeMoreActivityButton after it has been reviewed and then clear your cache and it should work. -- Cube-shaped garbage can 17:01, January 4, 2019 (UTC)

Nope, it didn't work. I rearranged my global.js so that SeeMoreActivityButton is below View Source, then bypassed, but still, it's not there! --Ready to rock! (talk) 17:04, January 4, 2019 (UTC)

Can you try entering debug mode and checking if it appears there? -- Cube-shaped garbage can 17:06, January 4, 2019 (UTC)
That's just where I can only see it now. I'm still awaiting a bug report response, and that's it. --Ready to rock! (talk) 17:13, January 4, 2019 (UTC)
In addition, the only place I can see it now is on the Message Wall posts. Also, I saw it when I logged in, but when I changed to another page, it disappeared. --Ready to rock! (talk) 17:22, January 4, 2019 (UTC)
