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 community.wikia.com for a page at dev.wikia.com will load normally, rather than in QuickDiff).
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.
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.
If you can contribute a translation, it'd be very much appreciated!
