"You must have the Gadgets extension for this to work." OK, fair enough. But that page says gadgets have to be specifically enabled. Um, OK? Well, the Gadget's page even says where to do this here enabling, but doesn't give a lot of guidance, or in fact any guidance for CharInsert. I could figure it out if I were familiar with coding, but I'm not. What's needed? RiverStyx23 (talk) 01:25, 12 January 2013 (UTC)
I had the same problem. After posting in the forum and receiving some very good advices I finally got it to work. To help other people to have this extention working, I made a documentation (in French but it should be easy to follow). You can look at it at: http://www.micronator.org/PDF/RF-232_SME-8.0_MediaWiki_Gadgets_CharInsert.pdf
Is it possible to have the link text be one thing and what it actually inserts another?
I want to set up a script to help my users fill in some extensive and somewhat complicated templates. A simple one would be my bind template. I currently have it set up as:
This is the text it needs to insert for the template to work; however, it would be easier for the user if what they saw was more like:
I'm also interested in this. I use htmlet extension in working with LaTeX environments and I want to show users something like:
Any suggestion, please? Thanks a lot in advance. Best regards!

For some reason these are not showing up as buttons.. I've tried every instruction a few times to get it to work and it is not.. the button stuff is just CSS, correct? Could it not be working because my wiki uses a custom skin? Is there a $wpUseCustomSkinCSS or something I am missing? I'm very frustrated. ~:-|
After the regular installations follow instructions on Extension:CharInsert#Advanced_Installation if you want to style them as buttons. Note that for MediaWiki:Common.css and MediaWiki:Common.js to be loaded,
$wgUseSiteCss have to be enabled.
Hi Technical 13. I'm having the same problem on my MW 1.18 installation and I cannot get the dropdown box to work either. $wgUseSiteJs and $wgUseSiteCss are enabled by default. Of course, if you have upgraded to MW 1.18, you should know that there have been a number of breaking changes. For instance, it now requires the page MediaWiki:Gadget-Edittools.js and the scripting uses different names (e.g. different div class names). But I'm still trying to figure out what else has changed that is causing trouble.
We are running 1.17.1 and they only don't appear as buttons for me with our custom skins.. I'm wondering if there is a different or special switch somewhere to turn userCss on with custom skins, or if the skin is severely broken and somehow causes it to not even look for MediaWiki:Common.css let alone username/common.css.
I use semantic forms and need to get char insert working within a form. When i edit a page with a form, i can get the char insert menu to show up but clicking the insert buttons doesn't do anything. I have seen several mentions of forms not loading edit.js and edittools.js but i can't even find edit.js (is it deprecated for edittools in 1.18?) and i tried loading edittools via Common.js and still don't have anything working. Any ideas?
