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?

Column Prototype
This is a very early prototype of a persistent column. It is not expected to work yet, and leaving it open will activate other new features which will break things. Press "\" (backslash) on your keyboard to close it now.
