FANDOM


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)

Message is a script for messaging multiple users at once.

Installation

Add this JavaScript on your wiki:

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


Usage

Once the script is installed, to open the form, click on the "Message" link in your toolbar.

The form has three fields to be filled up: one for the users to send the message to (each user needs to be separated by a new line), one for the message title, and the other for the message itself.

The form has three buttons: one for closing the form, one for previewing the message, and the other for sending the message.

  • There is no limit in the number of users a message can be sent to.
  • You can only send messages to the wiki you are on.

Translations

The following messages are used by the script:

cancel Cancel
message Message
preview Preview
send Send
title Title
users Users (case sensitive; separated by Enter)

If you would like to help out, please post translations for those messages on the script's talk page or add them directly to /code.js.
