Medals is site-wide use script, allowing admins to ignore the custom extension 'Achievements' and create their own achievements and grant them to users, which avoids abusive editing which happens with the default extension.
All of the script's configs are contained outside of script file, on its own page — Project:Medals, allowing the user to make changes without the review process. Make sure that you have protected this page to admin-only editing! Also, this script allows direct links for images only from Wikia image's servers like 'images', 'images1' or 'vignette1'.
After first adding this script into your MediaWiki:Common.js page, go to the Project:Medals script, which will ask you to create new config. Once done, you will be able to edit it via a special interface.
Interface have 3 sub-pages with own settings: Main, Users and Medals. Here are some explanations about how to fill up the most difficult pages — Main and Users:
- Module title — Title of your medal's module.
- Expand button — If amount of user's medals will be more than 12, you will see special button. After clicking, you will see full list of his/her medals. This button should have its name, right? :)
- Medal count — Description that will be displayed when you hover the section with amount of medal.
- Medal info page — If you have special page, where you have all info about your medals, you should fill this value up and the user will see a special button to check info.
- Medal info title — Same as for expand button.
- Border left — Image for top-left border picture. If you don't want to use it — leave it blank.
- Border right — Image for top-right border picture.
- Add user form — Button, on click of which script will add a new form for user.
- Empty area — It's where you should put user's nickname.
- Trash icon — Will remove this section. Simple.
- Medals — Button, on click of which you will show/hide section with all medals. Near with each medal's name you will see also area, where you can place amount of this medal.
To change some styles of module with medals user can use this classes:
RewardModule— medal's module section;
RewardImage— medal's image block;
RewardCount— in-image-block section with amount of medal;
badgetooltip— script's tooltip;
badgetooltiparrow— tooltip's top arrow;
Since this script has its data outside of the script page, there can be some problems with page's cache. Use
?action=purge at the end of the URL or the 'Purge page' button on your interface to solve it.
