Enable Gadgets extension in de.wikipedia
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Author: arnomane

de.wikipedia (probably like any other Wikipedia) has a large set of custom JavaScript programs programmed by users. Currently there is no easy way sorting them (by quality), recommending them and switching them on and off (for a average user that has no deeper technical knowledge).

Therefore there is http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:Gadgets by Duesentrieb that allows for an easy management of Javascript gadgets.

So I ask you to enable this extension for de.wikipedia.

Version: unspecified
Severity: enhancement

After installation of the extension, there's a header at the top of each page saying: "((NO GADGETS))". Since this is not good, I've disabled the extension again.

Please fix the bug and reopen this bug when you're done.

It seems to only appear as long as the [[MediaWiki:Gadgets-definition]] page does not exist. Once it's filled with any content (a single asterisk character will do), it vanishes. So, any de.wiki admin can create the page and reopen this bug.

A side note is that the extension is listed on mediawiki.org as "experimental" - is it no longer true?
