PseudoTalkPages is a small JS snippet designed to visually replicate user talk pages on wikis equipped with message walls. The script adds a "Talk Page" tab on user pages and performs a number of visual modifications to the user subpage selected to serve as the pseudo-talk page. It can be paired with UserTalkNotifications.

The script was initially implemented in pieces on the wiki, and as Staff code reviewers apparently had no issues with the script's implementation, it was added to the Dev wiki.


Add the following to your wiki's MediaWiki:Wikia.js file:

    type: 'script',
    articles: [

For the script to work as intended, all talk pages must be created on user subpages titled "Talk," an example being /wiki/User:Count_of_Howard/Talk.

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
  type: 'script',
  article: 'u:dev:FloatingToc/code.js'
importScriptPage('page1.js', 'wikiname');
importScriptPage('page2.js', 'wikiname');
    type: 'script',
    articles: [
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.
