Hi @Helmoony, it is unclear to me what is requested here, as I do not understand which configuration you'd like to see changed.

When it comes to site configuration, $wgUseInstantCommons = true is already set for all wikis in .

On,ميدياويكي:Gadget-directLinkToCommons.js exists. It is defined inميدياويكي:Gadgets-definition (and the default enables it by default for all users), and hence it is offered underخاص:تفضيلات#mw-prefsection-gadgets

On (and the other sites you listed),ميدياويكي:Gadget-directLinkToCommons.js does not exist. If you want it to exist, you should create it (though see how to avoid duplicating code) and also add it toميدياويكي:Gadgets-definition .
That would not require a task in Phabricator as it does not require changes in the site configuration, but someone on with sufficient permissions to create/edit these two pages.

(For future reference, please follow and provide

  1. a clear list of steps to reproduce the situation, step by step,
  2. what exactly you expect to happen
  3. what happens currently

to avoid misunderstandings.)

IIRC It is a gadget to link Commons file to Commons, not a configuration.
