Manual:Enhanced MediaWiki edit toolbar


This is copied from a letter sent to me by Charles. I installed this toolbar both in Wikimedia and ERW. --John Eagles 22:35, 4 January 2012 (PST)

I was able to install Wiki-Tweak, an enhanced edit tool bar that has quite a few handy functions including reference codes, tables, lists, images, media etc.


I installed it locally as an add-on to my FireFox browser. I could install it system wide or, you can install it on your local computer if you think it would be useful. You have to use FireFox and download the add-on from the FireFox add on page.

You have to create a JavaScript page under your user preferences for it to work, but it's a snap.

For more information on the add-on, go here:WikEd installation, Wikipedia

Complete version

This is the real installation code that works for all MediaWiki installations:

1. Log in under your username 2. If you are on the English Wikipedia click the following link to edit your User:YourUsername/monobook.js page (where YourUsername is your wiki username): Special:Mypage/monobook.js, otherwise open the respective User:YourUsername/monobook.js page (where YourUsername is your wiki username) by hand 3. If you are not using the default skin Monobook (see your preferences) then you have to replace monobook.js in the page name by the used skin, e.g. User:YourUsername/cologneblue.js for the Cologne Blue skin (see Wikipedia:Monobook for details) 4. Add the following code to that edit page:

// install Wikipedia:User:Cacycle/wikEd in-browser text editor importScriptURI('' + '&action=raw&ctype=text/javascript');

If there is already code on your User:YourUsername/monobook.js page, please make sure not to paste the installation code between /*...*/ tags.

5. Save the page 6. Refresh your browser's cache: hold down Shift while clicking Reload (or press Ctrl-Shift-R) 7. The wikEd logo should now be displayed on top of every page next to the log out link

Toolbar disappeared?

Try to clear all history in your browser. It worked for me.--JE 20:33, 23 January 2012 (PST)
