A sample image of blocked/locked users' links getting marked up

Gadget-MarkBLocked is a script forked from m:User:Dragoniez/Mark (B)Locked Global, initially inspired by en:MediaWiki:Gadget-markblocked.js. This script can be easily incorporated into your local wiki as a gadget, and all you have to do is configure the 'MarkBLocked' JavaScript object for proper localization.

This script:

  • Marks up locally blocked users and single IPs
  • (*) Can mark up single IPs included in locally-blocked IP ranges
  • (*) Can mark up globally locked users
  • (*) Can mark up globally blocked single IPs and IP ranges

The original markblocked only supports the non-starred feature, primarily because the starred ones could end up in performance issues depending on the browser and computer environments of the editors who use the script. Gadget-MarkBLocked overcomes this issue by preparing preferences settings; the starred features can be enabled/disabled anytime on the preferences page added by the script:

These are all the same, differing only in their page titles.

Gadgets-definition should have a line like the following:


For localization, configure the following JavaScript object:

var MarkBLocked = {
    // Portletlink configurations
    portletlink: {
        position: 'p-tb',
        text: 'MarkBLocked Preferences',
        id: 't-gmblp',
        tooltip: 'Configure MarkBLocked',
        accesskey: null,
        nextnode: null
    /* -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
        Register all local page names for [[Special:Contributions]] and [[Special:CentralAuth]] (without the namespace prefix).
        'contribs', 'contributions', 'ca', and 'centralauth' are registered by default: No need to register them.
        Note that the items are case-insensitive, compatible both with " " and "_" for spaces, and should NEVER be URI-encoded.
        If nothing needs to be registered, leave the array empty.
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- */
    contribs_CA: ['投稿記録', 'アカウント統一管理'], // Example setting for jawiki
    // Texts to show on [[Special:MarkBLockedPreferences]]
    configpage: {
        heading: 'MarkBLocked Preferences',
        check: {
            localips: 'Check whether single IPs are included in locally-blocked IP ranges',
            globalusers: 'Check whether registered users are globally locked',
            globalips: 'Check whether IPs are globally blocked'
        save: {
            button: 'Save',
            doing: 'Saving preferences',
            done: 'Saved preferences',
            failed: 'Failed to save preferences',
            lastsave: 'Last saved at' // This is FOLLOWED by a space and a timestamp
    // Names of the local user groups that have the 'apihighlimits' user right
    apihighlimits: ['bot', 'sysop']

This script adds the following classes to user links:

Selector Description Style
.gmbl-userlink Added to every user link
.gmbl-blocked-temp Temporarily blocked locally 07ST
.gmbl-blocked-indef Indefinitely blocked locally 04ST
.gmbl-blocked-partial Partially blocked locally DU
.gmbl-globally-locked Locked globally 04RU
.gmbl-globally-blocked-indef Temporarily blocked globally 04RU
.gmbl-globally-blocked-temp Indefinitely blocked globally 07RU
  • Abbreviations
    • 04: opacity 0.4
    • 07: opacity 0.7
    • ST: strike through
    • DU: dot under
    • RU: red under

Styles are determined based on which of the last 6 classes a given user link has. There're 26 = 64 combinations, and a list of them can be found on DropBox. If you use the default CSS, there's no need to modify nor locally configure the source CSS (the JS loads the CSS in itself). If you need to change the link styles, then create a new page with your modified CSS, and load it in your incorporated JS file. Note that the source CSS is intentionally coded verbosely for the purpose of facilitating maintenance.
