AutoEditPages can automatically append or prepend the same text on many pages that you can add by categories. This script adds a button in "My Tools" in your user bar at the bottom of the screen and a button in your user drop-down menu, when you hover your avatar at the top of the script. Even if your edits are automatically marked minor, it is strongly recommended to have a bot flag when you use this script, especially if the number of pages is big because it can flood the wiki activity and the wiki. Use it carefully and ask local administrators agreement before use it.

Features

You can edit all pages from a category directly from the form. To do this, type in the last input the name of the category and click on "Add pages from the category". All pages of this category will be automatically be added to the "Pages" text-area.

You can also remove a template from the selected pages by typing in the name of the template in the "Remove template from the pages above" field. So, if you want to remove the delete template, type Delete in that field. Note: The script makes 1 edit per second, so if you have many pages, it may take several minutes.

This script can replace AWB for people who can't use it or people who prefer using JavaScript.

Installation

Add this JavaScript on your wiki:

Global Personal
w:Special:Mypage/global.js Special:Mypage/common.js
importArticles({
    type: 'script',
    articles: [
        'u:dev:AutoEditPages/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.
