BlogLink adds links to the user's blog, contributions, and PseudoTalk (if applicable) pages to the GlobalNav drop-down menu. The script is based upon KnazO's ContribsLink script and was made by request for use on the English Wikia.

The script only adds the blog link if the wiki in question has blogs enabled in WikiFeatures, and only adds a link to the user's PseudoTalkPage if that script is in use on the wiki. Contributions links are loaded by default, though users may opt out of this default behavior through the inclusion of a config window object.

  • For personal use, add the code snippet below to your global.js page (for use on all wikis) or your common.js page on your wiki (for use on a single wiki). Note that personal JS must be enabled for your account.

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

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.


Through the inclusion of a window object, users are able to customize the script to their liking. Though by default the script adds blog, contributions, and PseudoTalkPage (if applicable) links, users may opt to display only desired links.

window.blogLinkConfig = {
    talk:false,      // Hides PseudoTalkPage link on wikis with script enabled
    contribs:false   // Hides Contributions link
