How do you implement this?

The easiest way I can see is to copy the code for the appropriate option into MediaWiki:Common.js on your wiki. Each option may require tweaking to meet your specific desires. — Tuvok[Talk/Contribs] 06:33, 19 October 2007 (UTC)

Did I forget something?[edit]

Firefox support[edit]


The script only works in IE, any fix to support firefox?

Works fine with with MediaWiki 1.11[edit]

I copied the top block of code into MediaWiki:Common.js and report that the function works exactly as hoped for. Thanks for posting this.

Works for me too, even on firefox - Markus

Hello. I copied this code to MediaWiki 1.12, but it does not works. I look at source of page and there is no link to commons.js. Must I set it somewhere else? --Lukas

Please see the $wgUseSiteJs config variable to enable sitewide javascript. --Skizzerz talk - contribs 00:14, 19 April 2008 (UTC)

Tried, but not working. Isn't there any problem with non-English site? I am using Czech localisation. --Lukas

Isn't wgUserGroups an array?[edit]

Is wgUserGroups an array or not?

If so, the code should be something like:

if (isArray(wgUserGroups)) {
    if (wgUserGroups.Contains('bureaucrat')) {

or does JS do something funny with:

if (wgUserGroups == 'bureaucrat') {...}

so that the array characteristics are irrelevant? --Michael Daly2 17:47, 14 April 2009 (UTC)

To answer my own question, that code will not work with 1.14. I have added a new version for MW1.14 or newer that will handle the array correctly. I don't know if older versions of MW used an array for wgUserGroups, so the other code for older version may or may not work. YMMV
