External editors[Ticpatlaz itzintiliz]

A wikipedia-enhanced text editor can make editing much easier. There are extensions for several text editors. They provide many useful functions, e.g.:

  • Syntax highlighting;
  • Easy navigation between the article's sections. This makes editing big articles much easier, especially if the overall outline structure of an article needs to be improved. Especially take a look at Eclipse and Emacs;
  • Direct down- and uploading of articles without using the web browser.

For details, see Wikipedia:Text editor support.

Humanbot (currently not running)[Ticpatlaz itzintiliz]

Description

A semi-automatic bot that automatically corrects mistakes in Wikipedia pages. The bot requires Mozilla Firefox, Greasemonkey 0.5-beta+, and a special script. This only works with the (default) Monobook theme. See the bot's page for more information.

Instructions (incomplete)

  • If you don't have Mozilla Firefox, see the Firefox page on the Mozilla website.
  • If you don't have the Greasemonkey extension, see the Greasemonkey page on the Mozilla Update website. Remember to restart your browser after installing it.
  1. Navigate to the script page.
  2. On the menu bar, go to Tools >> Install User Script.
  3. Click the 'Ok' button in the "Install User Script" window to add it to Greasemonkey.
  4. On Wikipedia, a new menu will appear on the sidebar, called "auto-edit" with the options 'on', 'off', and 'home'. Click 'on' to activate the bot.
    • Note: Do not activate the bot with multiple tabs open!
    • Note: The rest of the instructions are missing. If you can add to this, please do so.

Usage

The bot will send you to the correct page, make the changes, and press the preview button. You just need to check that the changes are reasonable, and the edit will be made under your own username.

Information display[Ticpatlaz itzintiliz]

Navigation popups[Ticpatlaz itzintiliz]

Wikipedia:Tools/Navigation popups gives a popup box containing the first paragraph of an article when hovering over a link; it also allows quick access to common editing operations. Installed by editing the user's [[User:Name/monobook.js]] file.

Templates[Ticpatlaz itzintiliz]

User:Zondor/Toolboxes provide a list of templates as tools for one to put in pages such as their user page.

Alternative preview[Ticpatlaz itzintiliz]

  • Pilaf's Live Preview is a script that allows very fast preview in the browser window during article editing, without loading a new page, using a JavaScript parser. It does not support templates and has some other limitations. Installed by editing your [[User:Name/monobook.js]] file.
  • User:Sverdrup/Wikipreview.html uses Pilaf's great Live Preview to make a downloadable stand-alone previewer for offline editing. (Download this link to save the file: wikipreview.html).

wpvfdhide[Ticpatlaz itzintiliz]

wpvfdhide hides VfD discussions which are already closed on demand. This is useful both for finding unclosed entries in the logs and for finding things which weren't speedied in the current VfD day pages. The latest link to it is at User:R3m0t and it requires Firefox and Greasemonkey. r3m0t talk July 3, 2005 13:56 (UTC)

WikiCheck watchlist tool[Ticpatlaz itzintiliz]

WikiCheck is small tool to make checking your watchlist easier. Docked to the left screen edge it shows a list of changes that occurred since the last time the list was checked. Clicking on a change will open the corresponding diff in a new browser window.


vfd_NavBar[Ticpatlaz itzintiliz]

vfd_NavBar is a modified version of the experimental navigation bars. This will hide closed discussions in the AFD & AFC pages, but not in the AFD sub pages (where there's only 1 discussion) and allows you to toggle them individually. There's no other requirements, just {{subst:User:Sanbeg/vfd_NavBar.js}} into your monobook.js -Steve Sanbeg 21:12, 17 October 2006 (UTC)

Regex: change heading levels[Ticpatlaz itzintiliz]

The following may seem trivial for Unix-experienced people, but a collection of ready to use regular expressions can help people who don't know anything or much about regular expressions. For these people: You can use regular expressions in many editors to perform complex editing tasks.

This will give the headings more (or less) equal signs ("="). I can only provide a version which is verified to work in Eclipse, but it will work in many text editors which feature Unix-style regular expressions.

Please change the expressions only if you are very, very sure that it will work correctly, say you have tested that it works.

Verified in Eclipse

Search-string:
^=(=*?)([^=]+?)(=*?)=\s*$
For more equal signs replace with:
==$1$2$3==
For less equal signs replace with:
$1$2$3
To balance right equals signs to left:
=$1$2$1=

Hints for text editors not mentioned

In other editors the replace strings will have to be different:

For more equal signs replace with:

==\1\2\3==

For less equal signs replace with:

\1\2\3

Footnote renumbering tool[Ticpatlaz itzintiliz]

If you have a page with many footnotes ({{Fn|...}} and {{Fnb|...}}), and they're all in the wrong order, this script could be useful. Written in Python, tested on a Linux system with Python 2.4.

Extra edit page buttons[Ticpatlaz itzintiliz]

Extra edit page buttons.png

For extra edit page buttons, put the following code in your monobook.js, replacing "monobook" with the name of your skin, in all lowercase (using "standard" for Classic skin).

{{subst:js|User:MarkS/extraeditbuttons.js}}

The buttons include: left aligned text, sub-script, super-script, insert table, insert quoted text.

More details can be found at User:MarkS/Extra_edit_buttons.

Strikeout[Ticpatlaz itzintiliz]

Button strike.png

The following simply adds a strikeout button to your editing tools:

    editingTools = document.getElementById('toolbar');

    if (editingTools != null)  {

Wiki Welcome[Ticpatlaz itzintiliz]

// A small piece of JS writen by [[User:MatthewFenton]], This is my first piece of JS.
function welcome() {
  if (document.title.indexOf('Editing User talk:') == 0) {
    document.editform.wpTextbox1.value = document.editform.wpTextbox1.value + '==' + 'Welcome' + '==\n' + '{{subst:User:' + 'MatthewFenton/Welcome}}\n~~' + '~~';
    document.editform.wpSummary.value = 'Welcome a user to Wikipedia using JS WW';
  }
}
function welcome_tab() {
  add_link('javascript:welcome()', 'Welcome');
}

if (document.title.indexOf('Editing User talk:') == 0) {
  addOnloadHook(welcome_tab);
}

The code adds a tab when you are on user talk pages, you can then click it to add a welcome template and then save. A little time saver for me i thought I would share. Matthew Fenton (contribs) 16:25, 12 July 2006 (UTC)
