Is it possible to substitute another icon for [] and [x]?

I'd like to be able to have, for example, a tick and a cross, or a green button or a red one.

For my own personal use I've substituted the "create_list()" function with the following code to provide my own graphical checkboxes:

function create_list($input) {
    $i = 1;
    $temp = explode('[', $input);
    $str = "";
    while ($temp[$i] != NULL) {
        $content = explode(']', $temp[$i++]);
        switch(strtolower(substr($content[0], 0, 1))) {
            case "x": $check_type = "Checked"; break;
            case "-": $check_type = "Mixed"; break;
            default: $check_type = "Empty";
        $str .= '<div class="chklist"><img src="'.$GLOBALS["wgScriptPath"].'/images/Checkbox-'.$check_type.'.png">'.$content[1].'</div>';
    return $str;

Then I have three images in my "images" directory:

  • Checkbox-Checked.png
  • Checkbox-Empty.png
  • Checkbox-Mixed.png

A "mixed" checkbox is a box with a dash in it.

Thank you - that looks ideal - how do you call the function from the wiki?

Can you save the result?

This is a nice easy extension. It works.

What I'd like to be able to do is set a property based on whether the box is ticked or not. For example:

<chklist> [x] a checked element one [] an unchecked element [] and another </chklist>

Can I get anything that tells me the status - 100 (for ticked, not ticked, not ticked) would be enough. Even better would be:

<chklist> answer_1=[x] a checked element one answer_2=[] an unchecked element answer_3=[] and another </chklist>

Then I could get a ask:

{{#ask: [category:whatever_it_is] [answer::true] |? Page Name }}

Which would tell me which pages had that as an answer.

Any chance?

I have 1.22.2, Mysql 5.1.66, php 5.2

Basically, I tried to install this extension http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:Chklist

I'm sure I did it right (uploading, editing the settings) as I have several others. Unfortunately unless I remove it from the local settings it shows me

[letters and numbers that are always different] 2014-02-20 02:59:30: Fatal exception of type MWException

is it because it can't work on mediawiki 1.22.2?

Thanks (talkcontribs)

After a some thinking, I tried removing $wgParser->disableCache();

and it did the trick. (talkcontribs)

Hi if you have Mediawiki 1.22 you would have php 5.3. 5.2 is not supported on Mediawiki 1.20 or higher.
