AjaxDiff allows you to inspect diffs and stay in WikiActivity. It is easier to check edits, and you can also revoke and block quickly while remaining on the WikiActivity page, instead of opening many tabs. You can also quickly view the diff of each edit from the Wiki Activity by navigate with ↑ (to see next edit) and ↓ (to see previous edit).

Note: Even if there is no visual difference of the block button, you won't be able to block the user if you don't have the block permission.

You can also Preview the page if you click in the "Show page" button or show its name with "Display page's name" button.

Installation

Add this JavaScript on your wiki:

Global Personal
w:Special:Mypage/global.js Special:Mypage/common.js
importArticles({
    type: "script",
    articles: [
        "u:dev:AjaxDiff/code.js"
    ]
});
importArticles — Best Practices for installing JavaScript on Fandom
The importArticles statement is designed to combine multiple HTTP requests into a single data transfer, allowing multiple scripts to load and execute faster. If you've been installing several different scripts, your JavaScript file has probably accumulated unnecessary import statements. Click "Expand" to learn how to efficiently batch import scripts to speed up performance and make your code look cleaner. One other approach is by using the MediaWiki:ImportJS.
If your JavaScript file has several lines of code that say importScript, importScriptPage, or importArticles, you may be able to combine them! By batch importing a collection of scripts with a single import, your JavaScript code will load faster and look cleaner. Consider the example below. On the left is an example of what your JavaScript file might currently look like. On the right is how you could improve that code.
Multiple imports — messy and slow One import — clean and efficient
importScriptPage('AjaxRC/code.js','dev');
 
importScript('MediaWiki:localScript.js');
 
importArticle({
  type: 'script',
  article: 'u:dev:FloatingToc/code.js'
});
 
importScriptPage('page1.js', 'wikiname');
 
importScriptPage('page2.js', 'wikiname');
importArticles({
    type: 'script',
    articles: [
        'u:dev:AjaxRC/code.js',
        'MediaWiki:localScript.js',
        'u:dev:FloatingToc/code.js',
        'u:wikiname:page1.js',
        'u:wikiname:page2.js'
    ]
});
Note: In this example, pay close attention to the placement of commas and other punctuation. For people who aren't familiar with programming (and even those who are!), a common mistake when writing code is to accidentally delete, forget, or misplace critical symbols like commas or quotation marks. This can cause a syntax error that breaks the code. Carefully follow the convention shown here when using importArticles.
But there's much more to importArticles than just this! For more examples and advanced usage, see the help page at Help:Including additional JavaScript and CSS.


Default values

You can change the default values for expiry and reason block by adding this before the import statement:

AjaxDiff = {
expiry: "1 week",
reason: "Spam"
};

And changing "1 week" and "Spam" by the values you want. By default, expiry is 3 days and reason is Spam.
