Can someone please tell me whether I'm on the right track with trying to understand how WikiLove might be deployed in the Simple English Wikipedia? I've been trying to follow various sets of instructions, and a discussion has started again in the Wiki that might lead to a consensus for requesting deployment (this has been discussed at some length before). Is the following correct?

Simple English has been started on but isn't listed at MediaWiki.
(I'm able to select Simple English as a language, but there don't seem to be any translations with it on
Simple English has not reached the 18%-translated point that is mentioned in the FAQ as a criterion for listing at MediaWiki.
Simple English may never reach that point because of its nature as a close relative of EN.
WikiLove cannot be deployed at Simple English until its WikiLove messages have been translated TranslateWiki, as mentioned on this page.

Therefore, the discussion should stop because WikiLove is not available to small projects like Simple English Wikipedia. Thanks for any advice, I'm quite lost here.

Thanks very much. Now that I have an account, I was able to enter translations by that round-about route.

Nemo bis (talkcontribs)

If you insist on doing so, however, I'll delete them. I already told you not to.

Sminthopsis84 (talkcontribs)

Wow, thank you, that gets me to the list! (However, I have so far been unable to make a signon for because my translation record is non-existent, as it seems to be inevitable that it would be, since I don't have an account. I'll try again to make a signon.)

Quiddity (talkcontribs)

Ah, yeah. That wiki is not part of the Wikimedia wiki-farm/family, so you'll need to create a new account there. (A frequently confusing step :)

Sminthopsis84 (talkcontribs)

Indeed. :-( Some people have somehow managed to sign up, but all I get is email with "Thank you for applying as a translator at I regret to inform you that I have rejected your application, because the quality of your translations did not meet the requirements." Zero translations = inadequate quality, apparently. Of course, this is not the place to complain about that. Thank you for your reply.

Sminthopsis84 (talkcontribs)

I was given an account, perhaps as a result of this discussion, so was able to proceed.

Nemo bis (talkcontribs)

As implied by bugzilla:70612#c1, the localisation requirement there doesn't apply to the Simple English Wikipedia. The wiki's locale is "en", from MediaWiki's perspective, so you're all set. Sorry for the confusion!

Sminthopsis84 (talkcontribs)

Well, I'm completely lost and don't understand this at all. Now I have an angry message that I should not have proceeded with translating the messages. Clearly, is beyond my comprehension. I'll see if I can find a way to have my account deleted.

Nemo bis (talkcontribs)

I'll try to be clearer. Quiddity was wrong, you don't need to translate anything to get this extension on Ok?

Quiddity (talkcontribs)

(My apologies for confusing things. >.< )

Sminthopsis84, I believe the next step (once you have local consensus at simple:) is to file a bug, per steps 2 and 3 at m:Requesting wiki configuration changes. You should just need a Summary ("Enable WikiLove at Simple Wikipedia") and a link to the onwiki discussion. Hopefully Nemo can confirm or correct me.

Just wanted to say that it was a genius idea, it should be standard in WP! Thank you for creating and maintaining it!

Creation of new types / Transcluding instead of substituting

Klein Muçi (talkcontribs)


In SqWiki we just activated the extension and we want to tweak it to satisfy our community's needs. We want to create our own types of WikiLove we can share in and make it so it trancludes the templates instead of substituting them. How can we make that? The page only describes how to do it for a single user and that doesn't work for the entire Wiki (the code does nothing when put at WikiLove.js page). We've already removed the original types by using the details mentioned at Extension:WikiLove#Removing items but adding new types for the entire project is not explained anywhere. I've already emailed @Kaldari for this problem where I've explained in details how the situation is and what are the reasons we want transclusion instead of substitution but he seems to be busy these days so I thought I should also ask here, hoping someone else can help me in the meantime.

Thank you! :)

Hello. I'm sorry, but I can not help you in that

Localization of WikiLove Images

NehalDaveND (talkcontribs)

Hello, I want to know about localizing of WikiLove images. Like in WikiLove we can see kitten image and in, we want to use holy cow image. Similarly in place of bear we want to put other drink. I want to change each and every images of WikiLove, but I don't know how and where should I do it. Please help to localize images. Thank you. ~~~~

Smlombardi (talkcontribs)

How do I add the WikiLove extension to my UserTalk page?

This post was posted by Smlombardi, but signed as Stmullin.

Jorm (WMF) (talkcontribs)

Which wiki is your home wiki?

Note that you cannot see the extension on your own talk page. You can see it on other user's talk pages, however.

Adding feature to a new wiki

Épine (talkcontribs)

Apparently, Mediawiki pages cannot be created inside the Wikipedia themselves, how can we add the WikiLove feature to the Central Kurdish Wikipedia? Should we create a certain page from this site? Help would be much much appreciated. Thanks.

Update instructions for disabling.

Jc3s5h (talkcontribs)

At the English Wikipedia, I am unable to locate the method for disabling this feature in my user preferences.

Bluerasberry (talkcontribs)

Several people hear ask about instructions for disabling. I also wanted to check this, and the instructions seem outdated because I see no "miscellaneous" tab in preferences.

Is this tool on by default for all users? Can it be turned off in preferences?

Fabsouza1 (talkcontribs)

Preferences, in the 3rd. tab

Quiddity (talkcontribs)

bugzilla:52757 moved it to the Editing tab. I've updated the explanation on the docs page.

It has been raised adding more pictures like barnstars, kitten or so. but someone said 'I doubt whether such a thing is possible.' is that true?

Extension for developers, not users

Thnidu (talkcontribs)

The lede says

It was originally developed by Ryan Kaldari as a user script, and is now available as a MediaWiki extension.

To a non-developer, this can suggest that an ordinary wiki user can use the extension. I've added

that developers can add to their wikis

to the end of the sentence.
