  • For site-wide use, an administrator can add the line below to the wiki's MediaWiki:ImportJS page.
dev:User Avatar Finder/code.js
  • 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({
    type: 'script',
    articles: [
        'u:dev:MediaWiki:User Avatar Finder/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.

Template

After you've installed the script, copy contents of the {{User Avi}} template on here to a template on your wiki.

Usage

To use it, simply include the template name and the username of the user in the content.

{{Template Name|Username}}

You can also change the size of the avatar (minimum size: 16 × 16px, maximum: 150 × 150px, default: 100 × 100px), (leave the px out) like so:

{{Template Name|Username|Size}}

Example:

{{User Avi|Static Whisper|50}}

Results with the following:
