  • Some messages have a thing showing the user who is reading it their name. How do you do that?

    • Oh. I’m no Javascript person.

    • It isn't that hard. All you have to do is import the script and add the template. You don't need to do anything in JS.

    • But I can’t copy paste it.

    • What do you mean? You should be able to copy and paste both; although you only need to copy the template. Importing the script is just adding the appropriate line to MediaWiki:ImportJS.

    • It's unfortunately not possible without JavaScript - though you could speak to your Wiki Manager (if you have one) or another admin and they may be able to help.

      It wouldn't work on your phone anyway.

    • The template is reliant on js, which does not work on the Mercury skin. Check your wiki's Special:Analytics to see how many readers are reading your wiki on a phone.

    • Well I still see the username thing on other comments.

    • To clarify, it won't work if you are accessing using the mobile app or the mobile web version. Similar to how you can't edit when through those methods either. However, if you use your phone's web browser and ask specifically ask for the desktop version, everything should work fine; JS and all. Well, except I recently found out Wikia goes out of their way to intentionally disable the wiki background image on small devices. However, other than that, I haven't seen any other differences between accessing via desktop and accessing via phone requesting the desktop version.

    • Ok but I can’t copy paste which is a problem

    • If you use your mobile browser and ask for desktop mode, you should be able to edit similar to how you would on an actual desktop. If your mobile device doesn't allow you to copy-and-paste, then try to get access to a desktop/laptop. If your phone doesn't need to refresh pages each time you open a new tab, you can try opening both the source and destination pages at the same time and then switching back and forth as needed to manually copy the content. Last resort would be to temporarily give one of us admin status on your wiki; but I wouldn't advise it.

    • Lol I have no rank there

    • Oh, okay. Well then the issue isn't that you can't copy-and-paste things. The issue is that you don't have the permissions necessary to import the script. Consider asking an admin to import the script.
