Checkingfax created T181747: Missing gadgets & user scripts.

Checkingfax added a comment to T92432: Come up with a better way to auto-label references.

Auto-label them before insertion, but allow them to be changed by pressing the Edit button when our mouse pointer is hovered on the newly created Citation. This would be done before the changes are Saved.

Checkingfax added a comment to T52568: VisualEditor: Be able to name references manually in the reference dialog.

If we try to name a reference by only using a numeral, the system rejects it and says that numeral only reference names are not permitted.
I feel it is bogus that Visual Editor gets around this by adding a colon: e.g. - :17
That kind of reference name is wrong and unhelpful.
I hope that the ability to manually name references, or at least the ability to manually approve the generated name is restored.

Normally editing only the header don't works with Mediawiki, I guess you're using a custom script. I thinl in this case it's the scripts fault?
