Hi, welcome to Wikia Developers Wiki! Thanks for your edit to the Talk:ShowHide page.

If you need help, and there are no local admins here, you may want to visit the forums on the Community Central Wiki -- Sean Colombo@fandom (Talk) 19:59, 2010 April 22

Taking Responsibility

I'd like you to step forward and take responsibility for deleting my comment with a link very similar to your own. In distinction to your own address given, mine actually worked (at least for me), where as yours still does not work (for me, or presumably, anyone else). Perhaps you could restore the entire page, rather than stealing credit for my contribution, and screwing it up in addition. -- ThatOneCH00B 16:51, November 26, 2013 (UTC)

A little context would help. I haven't a clue what you are referring to. Rappy @fandom 17:56, November 26, 2013 (UTC)


Hi, Rappy 4187. Can you let us know which terms they violated? That plugin was pretty nice that allow you post your own favorite image. It just a question.--留永锋 (Reply←→Edits) 19:35, November 5, 2014 (UTC)

This script allows customization that are outside of our Customization policy and was being abused. Custom user page backgrounds is a violation of that policy. Rappy @fandom 19:37, November 5, 2014 (UTC)
Does that also count when I use "User:Yong feng/wikia.css"?--留永锋 (Reply←→Edits) 21:27, November 5, 2014 (UTC)
No. That CSS is your personal CSS file. Any changes there are permitted. Rappy @fandom 00:09, November 6, 2014 (UTC)

Modding help

Is there a way for the Resident Evil Wiki to change the twitter message on "SocialIcons"? A few fan sites think we're being snobbish by using it (particularly relating to articles with factual errors), and I think the German version's "By Fans, For Fans" would be more 'community-friendly'.-- Forerunner 20:24, December 8, 2014 (UTC)

The entire preferences part is simply extended. You should be able to do something like this:
var SocialMediaButtons = { 
	position: "top",
	colorScheme: "color",
	buttonSize: "35px",
	wikiTwitterAccount: "default"
	de: {
		google: "Teile diesen Artikel auf Google+",
                facebook: "Teile diesen Artikel auf Facebook",
                twitter: "Teile diesen Artikel auf Twitter",
                vkontakte: "Teile diesen Artikel auf VKontakte",
                weibo: "Teile diesen Artikel auf Weibo",
                via: "via",
                twitterAccount: "Wikia_de",
                twitterMessage: "+von+Fans,+für+Fans.+"
Obviously, only include the ones you wish to change. I have not tested this, but this should simply overwrite the default messages. (Again, if you wish to leave it default, just do not include the line to change it.) Rappy @fandom 22:10, December 8, 2014 (UTC)

Lua Navbox

Hi, on Community Central you answered a couple of my threads and you seemed to be quite on-the-ball when it comes to the syntax of Wikia pages and as you're part of the member of the Community Support team I thought you might be able to help me with a little problem I'm having. In this forum thread on this Wiki I asked a question, asking why Navbox is giving script errors on my Wiki, which is a problem another user has tried and failed to solve for me. Brenton (contribs · email · talk · uploads) 07:03, January 22, 2015 (UTC)


What's up with the permissions that WikiaBot handed out that you undid?
~Curiouscrab (talk) 02:27, October 5, 2015 (UTC)


Why did you delete this? Claiming it "violates the tou" is generic and I find it insulting to have a script removed when I actually talked to Staff months ago and told that nobody had a problem with it on principle. Please explain why you have u-turned on this decision. --SuperSajuuk Talk Page | Tabber Code | Channel 18:50, December 1, 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for messaging me. I have restored the script based on the prior discussion. My apologies. Rappy @fandom 19:18, December 1, 2015 (UTC)
Thanks Rappy. It's understandable why it might have been deleted, so accept my apologies for being unnecessarily harsh. :) --SuperSajuuk Talk Page | Tabber Code | Channel 19:29, December 1, 2015 (UTC)


This message has appeared on South Park Archives wiki. "w:c:dev:DisableArchiveEdit/code.js" was not found (requested by user-supplied javascript). Do you know what this means and or how I can fix it? Thank you. Aguziel

I've fixed this. :) Rappy @fandom 15:48, December 15, 2015 (UTC)

Changing the links for scripts in infobox

Before you started mass editing to fix references to the MediaWiki namespace I wanted to actually change the Template:Infobox JavaScript so that it made those replacements automatically without mass editing. This can be done even now using a bit of Lua magic, and I think it is more future proof to run the bot (again) to remove the references to MediaWiki. In any event, Lua can even support those, for example:

local p = {}
   local scriptLocation =  mw.text.nowiki(frame.args[1])
   return scriptLocation:gsub("%[%[[^MediaWiki]","[[MediaWiki:")
return p
<data> <format>{{#invoke:scriptLocation|main|{{{code}}}}}</format></data>

As far as I can tell this can't be done with parser functions.Dessamator (talk) 13:09, January 20, 2016 (UTC)


Hello. I was wondering if the MediaWiki:ImportJS allow us to import JS like this or we still have to import it on Wikia.js or Common.js? Aphrodite Sweetheart (talk) 02:17, February 28, 2016 (UTC)

Any script that has been approved here can be loaded into ImportJS. Rappy @fandom 03:44, February 28, 2016 (UTC)
Thank you very much. Aphrodite Sweetheart (talk) 00:53, February 29, 2016 (UTC)

Deleted Script

I know that Wikia has rejected this script, but why did you delete it? MediaWiki:WikiGuard/VirusTotal.js.Code Lyoko Wiki: User: Deadcoder 20:47, March 13, 2016 (UTC)

Because you keep editing it and submitting it for code review even after being told this is not something we will approve. Rappy @fandom 20:56, March 13, 2016 (UTC)
Fine. Could you please email me the last version of the code? Code Lyoko Wiki: User: Deadcoder 20:57, March 13, 2016 (UTC)
No. I can not. Rappy @fandom 20:59, March 13, 2016 (UTC)
Then could you please use Special:Undelete, wait 10 minutes for me to copy the code, and re-delete it? Code Lyoko Wiki: User: Deadcoder 21:08, March 13, 2016 (UTC)
No. You've had more than enough time to secure this code after being told it would not be approved. Any further discussion on this will have to be through Special:Contact. Rappy @fandom 21:12, March 13, 2016 (UTC)

BackToTopButton script

Hi Rappy, it seems your recent edit to the script has caused an error. Please look into it. -- Khang (talk)

@fandom 07:24, May 14, 2016 (UTC)

Fixed. Thanks for the heads up. Rappy @fandom 15:27, May 14, 2016 (UTC)


I'm getting an error in this script, and it's stopping my other scripts loading too. – Ozuzanna 08:04, May 25, 2016 (UTC)


I'm not sure whether you've seen my comment on this blog, but I've been experiencing issues with the SnowStorm.js, where the snow doesn't show up properly, instead showing up transparent, or (in my wiki's case) red. ― C.Syde (talk | contribs) 07:04, May 26, 2016 (UTC)

Which wiki would that be? o_O Rappy @fandom 16:39, May 26, 2016 (UTC)
C.Syde's Wiki. But I don't think it really matters amymore, because apparently the issue has been resolved, since another user says that they've fixed the issue. For some reason the snow was changed from white to red, but now they've changed it back to white. It just needs to be reviewed and then the issue will be completely resolved. ― C.Syde (talk | contribs) 20:55, May 26, 2016 (UTC)
Ah, yeah, that's already been resolved. Rappy @fandom 20:57, May 26, 2016 (UTC)

User Tags

Hi. I'm from the Fuller House Wiki. I was wondering if you could help me add custom user tags for some users on our wiki, as I have tried but failed. Let me know if you can

Kind Regards Daniel Viglietti (talk) 10:17, June 4, 2016 (UTC)

I would suggest ProfileTags. Rappy @fandom 04:01, June 5, 2016 (UTC)


Hello. AjaxRC not working on some sites, could you fix it? FANSG (talk) 18:39, July 15, 2016 (UTC)



Can you check Please, that's so important. Dawid2 Dyskusja 16:19, August 5, 2016 (UTC)

And once more, how you can. Dawid2 Dyskusja 19:18, August 5, 2016 (UTC)


I'm not going against your decision of why you deleted it on Dev Wiki, but would it be okay for me to use it in my personal JS as I have the source code? — Ozank 18:55, November 16, 2016 (UTC)

Can this JS work for users, now that it's been deleted on the Dev Wiki? Several users happen to use the nuke JS, so I'm wondering whether it will still work for them or not. I've never tried using the nuke JS myself, since I have no reason to use it, although I guess it wouldn't hurt to test it on a testing wiki. ― C.Syde (talk | contribs) 22:46, November 16, 2016 (UTC)
I haved used that utility script to delete all pages and after I went to a wiki where I had the import script, I recieved an error saying that it's not found because it's no longer on the dev wiki. The best thing to do incase the script you want to use ever gets deleted is copy the full script that's already here and put it on your personal javascript profile so you can use it for later use when you need it before that gets deleted here.--Muzzarino 16:53, November 18, 2016 (UTC)
In the interests of transparency, I've sent in an email querying the deletion as I feel it sets a problematic precedent. I'll update here when I get a reply, assuming Rappy doesn't answer the points raised himself. cqm 21:29, 18 Nov 2016 (UTC)
For reference, the script has been restored. cqm 00:33, 22 Nov 2016 (UTC)

Snow Storm script

Hey, Rappy! I just wanted to let you know that due to the recent edits made to MediaWiki:SnowStorm.js, it no longer works on my wikis.--Annabeth and Percy🎵It's the joy that we feel and the love that we share. There's a little bit of Heaven everywhere.🎵 04:05, December 2, 2016 (UTC)

DisplayClock Change

Hello, I recently noticed that you changed the DisplayClock JS. I found this out because randomly, my UserTags script completely stopped working on the Wiki. I had not changed it, it just randomly stopped functioning at all. I began uninstalling JS to see what was the problem, & when I uninstalled DisplayClock, UserTags began working again. You were the only one to change the DisplayClock JS within the last year or so, & it does not appear that UserTags was changed. Could something you did have possibly caused this? I’m still a newb, so I’m just trying to use order of probability.

In addition, it appears that all of the Wikis I use with DisplayClock have this problem. Removing DisplayClock sets UserTags to working again, but still, I like DisplayClock, so I was wondering if you could look into it. I put DisplayClock back up on just in case you wanted to look at it, & you should also be aware that DisplayClock itself is not working, it’s not just disrupting UserTags.
~Ursuul 08:41, January 18, 2017 (UTC)

This was fixed. It was an oversight/unsaved edit that caused the issue. Rappy @fandom 19:12, January 18, 2017 (UTC)


Can you look at this code and why it doesn't work on w:c:sr.starwars?
~[Quəntumiið the Wise]→answer/write 22:02, January 23, 2017 (UTC)

I'm sorry. I do not have the time to investigate right now. I would suggest asking in the Forum here... or the Discord channel. Rappy @fandom 22:04, January 23, 2017 (UTC)

MW translations

Hello! Would you mind putting the translations from MediaWiki:UserActivityTab/code.js to correct language subpage of MediaWiki:User-activity-tab to make it work globally?
~[Quəntumiið the Wise]→answer/write 12:00, February 25, 2017 (UTC)

Sorry, I'm not sure what you mean. Can you elaborate? Rappy @fandom 19:22, February 26, 2017 (UTC)
I assume he means adding translations from MediaWiki:UserActivityTab/code.js to github:Wikia/app/blob/dev/extensions/wikia/UserActivity/UserActivity.i18n.php. -- Cube-shaped garbage can 20:09, February 26, 2017 (UTC)
No, I mean to update MW pages on Wikia, for example MediaWiki:User-activity-tab/be is in English, while on the JS page there's a translation.
~[Quəntumiið the Wise] 20:17, February 26, 2017 (UTC)
If they wanted to update it cross-wiki, they would have to edit that repository file I linked. Locally editing MediaWiki pages on Dev Wiki won't make the message change on any other wiki. -- Cube-shaped garbage can 20:24, February 26, 2017 (UTC)
Unfortunately, translation tasks take a considerable amount of time to get going. As such, Fandom only translates messages for the top 10-12 languages or so. Translating messages into every single language would take an extreme amount of man hours. Rappy @fandom 21:19, February 27, 2017 (UTC)

Deletion of ExternalImageLoader script

Recently the ExternalImageLoader script stopped working on my wiki and it has just been noticed that you deleted it from the Dev Wiki. Our wiki has been making heavy use of the script as a means to separate files that are uploaded to the wiki for article use and those embedded using the script for general use. Much policy was built around this to ensure that we could both be organised in delivering formal content as well as providing users the ability to post images for fun. Seeing as we have been prevented from doing this, I request a detailed explanation behind this deletion as well as alternatives to serve our case (certainly not basic uploading). Thanks. Hackey5 (talk) 21:33, April 2, 2017 (UTC)

By allowing any image source from anywhere, the script was open to all kids of abuse. There's no way for JavaScript to check what is the image type without visiting the page so it can as well not load an image at all but a normal page meant for something else.
That is, if you set the source of it to the API logout endpoint, the page you put that "image" on would basically work as an auto-logout page. There are many more examples of possible abuse, hence why Wikia didn't allow loading images from arbitrary source and instead made a whitelist. You could try asking them to whitelist image sites in there. -- Cube-shaped garbage can 05:04, April 3, 2017 (UTC)
Unfortunately, general security trumps local wiki policy. There were efforts to fix the script, but it was concluded that the effort to fix the issues was beyond anything reasonable.
The gist of the issue, as Kocka mentioned, was that it allowed images to be inserted from anywhere. This could be set to action=logout, but could also include illegal images from any site as well as tracking pixels which gather information on users without their knowledge or consent and without any oversight from a responsible set of users. It also allowed arbitrary javascript to be loaded via the javascript: scheme, which opened up even more attack vectors. In short, once you realised what the problem was, more and more issues became visible to the point where keeping the script as it stood was unfeasible.
To fix this, you would end up requiring some kind of image whitelist. Note that a blacklist, where you block specific patterns or strings would be unsuitable as you always end up playing catch up. However, the whitelist option already exists in the form of the External image whitelist. This in itself brings up more security concerns as the regexes it uses are also insecure at this time, although they are possible to fix and there have been some efforts to improve the overall security of the extension itself.
In terms of alternatives, the image whitelist is one option to explore. To use it, you simply embed the image like a normal URL link and it should load the image for you. Another is uploading images to your wiki. The latter option provides you much more security as there as a number of checks in place when uploading to prevent malicious files being uploaded or rendered. Coming from a wiki where personal images have been disallowed for a number of years, I will not say that uploading them to your wiki is ideal, but it remains an option if all else fails. cqm 06:36, 3 Apr 2017 (UTC)
Thanks for the info. I'm not exactly clear on the image whitelist, though. Pasting an image URL doesn't embed images, unless there's a specific type? Or an image received from a specific location? Hackey5 (talk) 05:21, April 6, 2017 (UTC)
The image hosting providers that should work are:
  • imgur
  • photobucket
  • imageshack
You should also be able to embed images uploaded to your wiki or other wikis. If your wiki defines MediaWiki:External_image_whitelist (if you don't it'll look exactly the same as it does here), then it's down to whatever you've added regexes for. In theory, all wikis inherit from central, but it became apparent some months ago that the functionality was broken in a number of places. cqm 09:47, 6 Apr 2017 (UTC)


I read that I must add "ProfileTags.js" to ImportJs on a wiki in order to activate this customization, but on one of my wikis the MediaWiki:ImportJs page is not editable at all, it lacks the edit button. How to fix this? --Masson Thief (talk) 16:31, April 23, 2017 (UTC)

Never mind, it didn't work because I typed ImportJs without the last s capitalyzed resulting in a weird page to show up. Entering ImportJS works.Masson Thief (talk) 17:04, April 23, 2017 (UTC)

Problem with Toggler.js

Hi, Rappy 4187. Recently, Z/X TCG wiki switched to external Toggler.js provided by One Pice wiki, which then changed by you to the Toggler.js provided by Dev. The problem is, the Toggler.js provided on Dev doesn't seem to work on the wiki since it doesn't generate any link on the page that use it (even on the template page itself). Can you take a look at it to determine the problem? --Aeris Ventaile 08:44, May 17, 2017 (UTC)

Looks like an oversight on my part. My apologies. Fixed the import to the correct JS file. Rappy @fandom 02:16, May 18, 2017 (UTC)


Please provide a rationale for your deletion of Banners. The code was approved on two separate wikis prior to its inclusion here on Dev and no one raised any objections for months until now. CoH  10:12, June 9, 2017 (UTC)

Possibly because they were somehow interfering with the global nav? But that should be fixed by Wikia... -- Cube-shaped garbage can 11:28, June 9, 2017 (UTC)
According to our customization policy, no banners are allowed to be placed above the article area. Please remember that code review is not ToU review. Rappy @fandom 19:49, June 9, 2017 (UTC)

Extended Navigation

Hi Rappy 4187,

I just went onto my Wiki and noticed that the navigation bar was messed up. After some research I noticed that the ExtendedNavigation javascript had been deleted entirely. I'm sorry to see this go, it was of great use to me on a personal level. If there's no intention to bring it back, is it possible for me to try and recreate it on my own wiki?

Edit: For some reason I can't even edit the wiki navigation. It's disappeared completely from the Edit dropdown menu on the main page.—Preceding unsigned comment added by RoIento (talkcontribs) 04:54, June 14, 2017‎. Please sign your posts with ~~~~!

Use of extended navigation is now against the Customization Policy & so would not be allowed if you attempted to recreat it. The Wiki Navigation can be found at MediaWiki:Wiki-navigation, where you will be able to edit it.

Interwiki script

Hello Rappy! I have asked asked Kocka to create a script which would automatically display interwiki links, by JS, not by MW:Recentchangestext. It'd would be a kind of help for my wikis, especially new interlinks wouldn't have to be added manually to all other wikis, and if one wiki gets closed, the link wouldn't have to be removed manually. But what I'm going to ask you is if it's not a modification policy violation? This script is very needed for my wikis.

SpoilerAlert request

Per request, I made SpoilerAlert not hide the featured videos and rail ads and restrict the user from hiding more than 50% of the page height. It looks like ads in content are already above the spoiler cover but I couldn't find any actual content ads to test on. If you have any counterexample I could just put #WikiaAdInContentPlaceHolder { z-index: 99999; } into the CSS page, I suppose. Is it satisfactory? -- Cube-shaped garbage can 16:59, September 16, 2017 (UTC)


Can you restore AutoEditDropdown? There are still some dropdowns where you have to click on instead of hover, like the Edit button in userpages, the More button in the forums and the "Most Visited" button in the category exhibition. Can you please restore it? It still has a purpose for now.

~Signed JustLeafy ( ͡| ͜' ͡| ) USER WALL 05:59, September 30, 2017 (UTC)

Talk to KockaAdmiralac about that please. I didn't delete the script. :p Rappy @fandom 16:19, September 30, 2017 (UTC)
He already did, I can't restore MediaWiki pages. -- Cube-shaped garbage can 16:22, September 30, 2017 (UTC)
Indeed, restoring MediaWiki: pages requires membership in FANDOM Utilities, FANDOM Helpers, or VSTF. --Saftzie (talk) 18:45, September 30, 2017 (UTC)

Main Page Change

Should we add Modernization as the "fourth thing we like", since scripts that modernize features is starting to become more and more common in here?

Hi, Rappy 4187, as I saw your name on the list of attributors of YoutubePlayer I notify you a bug of the script.

The function loop does not work when the parameters width and height are set to 0, this I checked in the next page from an external wiki: Usuario:Fabrix199/Pruebas. This test I make it with a video that last 5 seconds and this error only occur when the parameters previously mentioned are set to 0, it even works as how it should when it is set to 1.

I don't know if you are the one who will fix this, but I hope you at least know who could, thank you in advance. Fabrix199 (talk) 05:02, January 8, 2018 (UTC)

Please document this on the talk page. Rappy @fandom 15:16, January 8, 2018 (UTC)
Done. --Fabrix199 (talk) 21:00, January 10, 2018 (UTC)

Tag Filter

How is the tag filter added into Special:Recentchanges, below "Namespace:"? I wish to add it to my wiki. Thank you if you can tell me anything.—|| Grudgeholderr ||— 04:25, February 7, 2018 (UTC)

It's added by having AbuseFilter enabled on the wiki. If your wiki doesn't face a lot of vandalism, though, you're not very likely to get it enabled. -- Cube-shaped garbage can 06:30, February 7, 2018 (UTC)
Thanks for the info!—|| Grudgeholderr ||— 07:58, February 7, 2018 (UTC)

Last edit to ConsistentModules

It looks like your last edit to ConsistentModules broke it because you forgot to include MediaWiki: after u:dev:. That reminded me, though, could you move MediaWiki:ConsistentModules/code.css to MediaWiki:ConsistentModules.css so I can at the same time fix the script and make it follow the better naming convention you suggested in the HTTPS thread?

Kind regards -- Cube-shaped garbage can 16:50, February 22, 2018 (UTC)

Scripts should load with the MediaWiki omitted... is CSS different? Renamed the page. importScriptPage/importStyleSheet will be fixed on Monday, btw. Rappy @fandom 16:54, February 22, 2018 (UTC)
Yes. Scripts load with MediaWiki: omitted because otherwise old imports would've broken during the security issue that caused Staff to move all scripts to MediaWiki namespace on Dev. -- Cube-shaped garbage can 16:57, February 22, 2018 (UTC)
Makes cents. I will try to remember that. Rappy @fandom 16:58, February 22, 2018 (UTC)
I'm currently replacing all instances of importScriptPage and importStylesheetPage, by the way. Could you also move MediaWiki:PageFormatter/code.css to MediaWiki:PageFormatter.css, MediaWiki:FandomizedChat/code.css to MediaWiki:FandomizedChat.css and MediaWiki:UploadInPage/code.css to MediaWiki:UploadInPage.css? -- Cube-shaped garbage can 19:24, February 22, 2018 (UTC)
Done. Rappy @fandom 19:23, February 22, 2018 (UTC)

https:// links

If you want, I (or other users here) could search the database dump (again) for http:// links and help you change them to https:// everywhere (I know it's Content Review that alerted you about http:// in the JS you reviewed but it could help so you get less of these notices in future). I didn't change http:// links in comments to https:// back when we were migrating scripts to use HTTPS links because Wikia didn't have HTTPS yet but if they should be preemptively changed I can change them now. Also, why were https:// links in this change changed to protocol-relative URLs? Won't that just make them HTTP until Wikia starts using HTTPS? -- Cube-shaped garbage can 20:39, March 19, 2018 (UTC)

Feel free to if you want. JSRT now alerts if http:// is present. Protocol-relative links should be fine for now. I would rather them be protocol-relative rather than not redirecting correctly through some bug or other. If you feel otherwise, please share. HTTPS is coming soon™. Rappy @fandom 21:14, March 19, 2018 (UTC)
Another question, does JSRT require you to remove all HTTP links? Because https:// in SVG namespace is not what WDS uses and it's not supposed to be used for schema retrieval so I don't think it needs to be changed to HTTPS. -- Cube-shaped garbage can 17:45, March 20, 2018 (UTC)
Wow. That's crazy. The answer to the question, though, is no. Were there SVG links that were changed? (I assume so.) Rappy @fandom 18:09, March 20, 2018 (UTC)
Well, namespace URLs were changed in this, this and this edit. -- Cube-shaped garbage can 18:11, March 20, 2018 (UTC)
Reverted. Rappy @fandom 19:09, March 20, 2018 (UTC)


There is [[MediaWiki talk:MusicPlayer/code.js|an XSS issue]] in the script you recently approved. I can link you to an example of abuse now that the script is approved if you want. Cheers! -- Cube-shaped garbage can 19:36, May 16, 2018 (UTC)

Where did you find the issue with the script and what's one example that the player designed to play music was abused?--Muzzarino 19:42, May 16, 2018 (UTC)

Please don't edit the MediaWiki namespace pages on Everythingyouneedtoknowaboutscience Wiki without my permission. Also, I prefer to use my own scripts or extensions on, not Dev Wiki's, if possible. So please don't replace my scripts with Dev Wiki's versions like what you did with the automatic edit summary last time. And why did you add the InactiveUsers script on the wiki's ImportJS page when I had the expanded version (UserTags)? Please explain and thanks. Joey P. (Talk) 23:35, May 25, 2018 (UTC)

Please supply links when asking questions like this. I edit hundreds of wikis a day and can't possibly remember them all.
It seems my only edit there did nothing you just mentioned above.
I usually only move scripts to ImportJS when they exist in Common.js or Wikia.js as they are optimized and loaded at the same time rather than separately.
Also, scripts that exist on Dev should be imported from Dev. This ensures that updates to said script update everywhere it is used. Forks from Dev scripts are discouraged and may even be disallowed in the future. It is better to request options for the script itself on the script's talk page to accommodate the reason for the need of forked code. Rappy @fandom 05:06, May 26, 2018 (UTC)
No, I am not using Dev's version, I am original as possible. Enough said. Joey P. (Talk) 02:24, May 27, 2018 (UTC)

Another CSS page to move

Hi! Would you be able to move PortableCSSPad/stylesheet.css over to the MediaWiki namespace to preserve its history, overwriting the current copy-pasted MW page? It seems I missed it when I originally went through the main namespace CSS deletion logs looking for pages that were copied across, for Thread:16168. Thanks, OneTwoThreeFall talk 09:29, July 3, 2018 (UTC)

Done... and restored deleted revisions. Rappy @fandom 16:45, July 3, 2018 (UTC)

Are you sure you're not loading the ChatAnnouncements version before my changes? I don't see any error on line 59 and I tested the script (with chatAnnouncementsAll and without, both /announce and /sendannouncement, sending normal messages worked too) before submitting it. -- Cube-shaped garbage can 07:03, July 20, 2018 (UTC)

It may have been a cached copy. Would be a little surprised though as it was tested quite a few hours after the last revision was accepted. The error was announce is not defined when the first line was sent to Chat. Rappy @fandom 07:05, July 20, 2018 (UTC)
That's the error I fixed on that line. Could you try approving the version after my fixes and see if the error still appears on chats it appeared before? -- Cube-shaped garbage can 07:08, July 20, 2018 (UTC)
Very odd. Seems to be working now. I swear I hate caching some times. Rappy @fandom 07:14, July 20, 2018 (UTC)

Need a broken script reviewed

MediaWiki:MessageBlocker/code.js has an error, could it be reviewed before the weekend? No worries if you can't speedy🔔︎🚀︎ 20:25, July 20, 2018 (UTC) (EDIT: MediaWiki:!ban/code.js also has an issue)

Done. Rappy @fandom 04:59, July 22, 2018 (UTC)

Renaming CSS page

Could you also rename MediaWiki:LastEdited/code.css to just MediaWiki:LastEdited.css before approving the JS page?

Cheers! -- Cube-shaped garbage can 20:14, July 21, 2018 (UTC)

Done. Rappy @fandom 04:59, July 22, 2018 (UTC)

Content Moderator Request

Hi there! I left a request for content moderator a couple of days ago, and I was wondering what would happen to it after changes to Cqm's rights.

Yet another CSS page

Could you also rename MediaWiki:OnScrollTrigger/code.css to MediaWiki:OnScrollTrigger.css?

Cheers! -- Cube-shaped garbage can 08:37, August 5, 2018 (UTC)

Done. Rappy @fandom 18:50, August 6, 2018 (UTC)

I'm free at last!

  • Hey Rappy 4187, guess what? Hypercane gave up and is ready to unblock my Scratchpad Wiki account, can you let me be free of my wiki editing? User:Nickolasd (talk)


I collected a list of all redlinks on Dev I can't resolve myself in User:KockaAdmiralac/Redlinks#Useless redlinks. Could you look into resolving them when you have time?

Cheers! -- Cube-shaped garbage can 22:06, August 13, 2018 (UTC)

Should be done. Rappy @fandom 02:39, August 14, 2018 (UTC)
It looks like the link to FixLinks is present on Thread:6891#49 and Thread:6891#53, the link to MediaWiki:WikiNavigation is present on User:Nicko756/Wikimarks and User:Glazeye/Wikimarks and the links to MediaWiki:Monaco.js and MediaWiki:Monaco.css are present on User:Spydar007/Wikimarks and User:B.O.T./Wikimarks (the user restored links to Monaco pages so in order to prevent redlinks you could rather put pre at the top of the page, or let me know if you want me to contact the user instead). Could you also consider creating MediaWiki:Chat.js/css with contents mentioned on the redlinks page? Thanks! -- Cube-shaped garbage can 06:49, August 14, 2018 (UTC)
Wait!So that is why you edited my user js page?history.(But thank you)DF2.jpeg 机智的小鱼君⚡️(给我留言☎️) 07:40, August 14, 2018 (UTC)
Yeah, go ahead and contact them. I am not sure if the pre would cause issues or not. Rappy @fandom 17:31, August 14, 2018 (UTC)
As for Chat.js/css... I guess if you could get me a list of the 203 pages, I can run a quick script. I don't have the time to compile the list at the moment. I'll try to do it by EOW. Rappy @fandom 17:33, August 14, 2018 (UTC)
I'm not saying you should remove these redlinks, these redlinks are mostly (and intentionally) added by installation templates for consistency and most of them can be fixed with a single edit... I'm saying you should probably create the pages with the contents as mentioned here so users that arrive on these pages know they should not be editing them but rather these pages on their own wikis.
<pre> will not cause issues, but I'll contact them.
Also, it looks like my double-quote-hiding CSS has hidden a redlink from me, could you remove the last FixLinks redlink from Thread:6891#55?
Thanks! -- Cube-shaped garbage can 18:35, August 14, 2018 (UTC)
Would creating Chat.css prevent chat import testing on Dev Wiki? Perhaps installation templates could bold nonexistent pages, or link them to CC. speedy🔔︎🚀︎ 19:13, August 14, 2018 (UTC)
I understood what you meant. Further thinking on this, how would this expand? Will this be something a Staff member would have to constantly keep creating pages for? If so, the premise needs to be rethought. Rappy @fandom 21:23, August 14, 2018 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── I don't think we have any other "missing" site JS/CSS pages that we might be pointing users to and I don't believe Wikia's going in the direction where we might be getting more site MediaWiki pages for JavaScript/CSS customization. Chat.js/css (and really most MediaWiki pages) are pages that often get pointed to with links - even if they don't exist on the wiki they are pointed to but should be instead created on the wiki of the user that is being directed. I believe it would be much easier to create these pages with useful instructions than have to resolve redlinks every time somebody points users to these pages. -- Cube-shaped garbage can 21:32, August 14, 2018 (UTC)

Agreed with Kocka - it shouldn't be a problem in the immediate future.
If creating Chat.css will break all personal chat CSS on Dev, we could alternatively:

  • create the pages with only a newline
  • if necessary, put the article notice above with JS/CSS (MediaWiki:Clearyourcache isn't whitelisted sadly)

Polish quotes

Hey! Could you add Polish double quotation mark („+”) to MediaWiki:Edittools?

Thanks! RAIL my talk 11:56, August 17, 2018 (UTC)

Done. Rappy @fandom 16:07, August 17, 2018 (UTC)

Wikimarks edit

Hey, why did you make this edit? As far as I can tell, it didn't cause any redlinks. cqm 08:02, 19 Aug 2018 (UTC)

Neither link does anything anymore. I was clearing out the old Monobook related info via search. Rappy @fandom 19:26, August 19, 2018 (UTC)


Hello, could you please rename MediaWiki:AjaxBatchDelete/code.2.js to MediaWiki:AjaxBatchDelete.js and leave a redirect? This is per the talk page discussion here. Thanks. Patrik 13:52, August 27, 2018 (UTC)

Done. -- CzechOut @fandom 21:18, August 27, 2018 (UTC)
Thanks. Patrik 21:39, August 27, 2018 (UTC)

Moving MW pages

Would it be possible to give content mods permissions to move pages so that the css pages for scripts can be moved from code.css to .css? (without needing to request a move for every single page and then wait for it to get reviewed, since theres a lot) --Sharkie 20:49, January 13, 2019 (UTC)

Feel free to give me a list (props if it's in Special:MovePage links) of pages to move and I will do it when I run through JSRT that same day. Rappy @fandom 20:07, January 14, 2019 (UTC)
Ok, here's a list of pages to move to Name.css:

Hi there, I wanted to add something in the bio on my profile, but I can’t see it. Is there a way to put it on? KellyTheGachaGirl (talk) 17:34, December 7, 2019 (UTC)

Did you try importing EditBio? -- Cube-shaped garbage can 08:08, December 9, 2019 (UTC)


About EmoticonsWindow, although I have all the scripts imported in the Chat.js of my community, it just isn't working, although I also have the mediawiki set up as well. I have tried bypassing the cache, debugging, purging, and refreshing multiple times, but the window just doesn't show up in the Special:Chat of our community. Is there anyway I can fix this? TheSURVIVR (talk) 04:12, December 11, 2019 (UTC)

I would suggest asking on the Forum. Rappy @fandom 01:47, December 12, 2019 (UTC)
The Forum here never gets answered, though, as far as I know. Or maybe it's just my last experience here was coincidentally overlooked. TheSURVIVR (talk) 01:56, December 12, 2019 (UTC)
