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)

OldFilePages reverts file pages to the old design—no tabs. It also makes some improvements, such as re-adding duplicate file listings and listing regular links to the file if there are no transclusions. The intention is to make it easier for people who are working on file maintenance and such tasks.

  • 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

importScriptPage('page2.js', 'wikiname');

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.


Configuration of this script is done through the OFPoptions object. You should insert it into your global.js/common.js pages if you're importing it for personal use or into MediaWiki:Common.js page on your wiki if you're importing it for site-wide use. There are two configuration options you can use:

  • showlinks — Set to true if you want links to the file to show below transclusions regardless of whether it's used anywhere
  • limit — Set to a number to change the biggest amount of files that will be displayed in the transclusions section

Example configuration

This is only example configuration and isn't required for the script to work.

window.OFPoptions = {
    showlinks: false,
    limit: 200

This will make the list of pages that link to the file show up regardless of whether a page transcludes it and the maximum amount of transclusions shown will be set to 200.

Using configuration options with FANDOM Open Source Library scripts
The instructions on this page describe how to use configuration options with a script. Here on the FANDOM Open Source Library, many scripts provide optional configuration settings as a mean to alter or enhance the default behavior of the script. When installing configuration options in your JavaScript file, please note that they need to go above the import statement in order to work — unless the directions say otherwise. In case MediaWiki:ImportJS is used to load the scripts, it will be executed last.
Configuration options load too late, don't work
Proper placement of configuration options
