ChatHacks is a JavaScript add-on for Fandom chat.


Add the following to the MediaWiki:Chat.js page on your wiki (or to Special:Mypage/chat.js for personal use):

importArticles({ type: 'script', articles: [


  • Ability to clear your chat window
  • A host of slash commands
  • Ability to create multi user private chats
  • Inline alerts every time your away status changes
  • Icons next to messages by staff and chat mods in the room
  • Pings when someone mentions your name or any other specified phrases


You can suggest translations on the talk page or add them yourself on MediaWiki:ChatHacks.js/i18n.js if you feel confident.


As the script is old and is no longer maintained, there are a few bugs, which may cause the chat to completely crash. One of the bugs is from Private Messaging, and another bug is during the initial loading of the script. Any of these bugs happening will require constant reloading of the chat to alleviate, but it may be tedious to PM when using this script as a result.
