QuickDiff lets you quickly view (hopefully) any diff link on a wiki, whether on Recent Changes, Wiki Activity, history pages, the diff view itself, or elsewhere.

Note this will only work for links to the same wiki you're currently on (for example, a diff link on a page at for a page at will load normally, rather than in QuickDiff).

QuickDiff was originally based on the 'DiffAnchored' script, written by Gguigui1, though it has since completely diverged. If you notice any issues or would like to give feedback, leave a message on the talk page.

  • For site-wide use, an administrator can add the line below to the wiki's MediaWiki:ImportJS page.
  • 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

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.


If you can contribute a translation, it'd be very much appreciated!

If you are familiar with JavaScript syntax, feel free to add a translation to the code directly by copying an existing language object and translating the strings. If not, you can copy the text in the box below and leave a message on the talk page with your new translation.
