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)

replaces the "On the wiki" menu with the links that you find most useful.

are fully editable. You can add as many links as there's space on the menu bar. You can add submenus to each entry, of course. And you can even add sub-submenus - which Wikia's standard menu doesn't know.

travels with you. The menu contains exactly the same links in every wiki you go to. It's your menu after all.


Installation

See also: Help:JavaScript and CSS Cheatsheet

Note: Installation is only the first step, you must also edit your to actually create your links!

Installation

Add this JavaScript on your wiki:

Global
w:Special:Mypage/global.js
importArticles({
    type: 'script',
    articles: [
        'u:dev:Wikimarks/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.


Editing

To edit your , click on the logo which appears in the navigation menu where it would normally say "On the Wiki". You could also go directly to Special:MyPage/Wikimarks.

For a quick start, there is a starter set that includes a lot of useful links. Just copy it to your Wikimarks, save, and you're done.

Syntax

Editing is easy, it's just a list of links - one link per line. Each link is wikitext, same as you use to edit pages in source mode.

  1. The line begins with one, two or three asterisks.
    1. * One asterisk will place the link on the menu.
    2. ** Two asterisks will place it on a submenu of the menu.
    3. *** And three asterisks will place it on a sub-submenu.

Examples

Here are some basic examples:

Makes a local link to Special:RecentChanges on the current wiki
* [[Special:RecentChanges|Recent Changes]]
Makes an interwiki link to w:c:dev:Wikimarks
* [[w:c:dev:Wikimarks|Wikimarks]]
Makes a regular hyperlink to http://dev.wikia.com/wiki/Wikimarks?oldid=9753
* [http://dev.wikia.com/wiki/Wikimarks?oldid=9753 Wikimarks]
Makes a regular hyperlink to google.com
* [https://www.google.com Google]

For more advanced examples, see Wikimarks/Syntax.
