This script is for PERSONAL use only!

You are free to install this script for yourself, but it is not allowed to be used wiki-wide (e.g., in MediaWiki:Common.js or MediaWiki:Wikia.js), as it would violate Fandom's Terms of Use. (See the customization policy)

AnchoredRollback allows you to make rollbacks without changing location. This is useful where multiple edits are being rollbacked, especially on a user's contributions page or recent changes. This makes it especially easier to manually rollback multiple pages from a single page without the use of tedious workarounds such as opening in new tab.

This script is compatible with AjaxRC.

Add this JavaScript on your wiki:

importScriptPage('MediaWiki:AnchoredRollback/code.js', 'dev');
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.


You may add an optional config before importing the script which will mark all your rollbacks as bot edits if done while being in the sysop usergroup. This can be done by adding anchoredRollbackBot = true; above the import, like below:

anchoredRollbackBot = true;
importScriptPage('MediaWiki:AnchoredRollback/code.js', 'dev');

Being in the bot usergroup will have your edits marked as bot edits by default regardless of whether the config is added or not.

If you're already using importArticles(), you can import the script by adding the below to the article list.

"u:dev:MediaWiki:AnchoredRollback/code.js",
