Forums: Index > Wiki discussion > Adding buttons to images for IC and Sysops

I've already implemented it, but I figure I should make this to gather feedback on how it works and ways to improve it if necessary. I've added three buttons in total. Two on image pages, and one on Special:MovePage when you are moving an image. These are only visible to Sysops and Image Control members. Feel free to comment below if something goes wrong or needs to be changed. I will archive this in about a week if nothing comes up.  Food 25px-Surprise.png  07:28, January 29, 2013 (UTC)

I think it would be a better idea to use the Gadgets system (such as what is seen here). Gadgets can be set so that only users in a certain user group can enable them.  FANMADE_Animated_Derpy_Hooves_desktop_ponies_sprite.gif Sig1.png Sig2.png  18:07, January 29, 2013 (UTC)
Eh, they both do about the same thing. One just needs to be enabled, and one is automatically enabled.  Food 25px-Surprise.png  23:35, January 29, 2013 (UTC)
Well that's the thing - I already have buttons around the title and I don't need these new ones and I'm sure some other users are in the same boat, so it would be good to make it optional. I know I could remove them with extra javascript but that's not intuitive for users who aren't sure how to do that. I love the button idea but

it would be better to make it optional so for those who don't need it, they can easily disable it.  FANMADE_Animated_Derpy_Hooves_desktop_ponies_sprite.gif Sig1.png Sig2.png  00:02, January 30, 2013 (UTC)

Ahh, I see what you're saying. I hadn't thought about that. Let me read up on how to put this into a gadget and it'll be there shortly.  Food 25px-Surprise.png  00:05, January 30, 2013 (UTC)
I garbled my wording a bit, I meant that for those who need them, they can be easily enabled (if I recall correctly, gadgets cannot be enabled by default - though I may very well be wrong). Also the good thing about gadgets is that you don't really need a forum like this in order to see if they're wanted, since by default they're not enabled so they are of no effect unless individual users want them.  FANMADE_Animated_Derpy_Hooves_desktop_ponies_sprite.gif Sig1.png Sig2.png  00:08, January 30, 2013 (UTC)
Alrighty, it's in a a gadget now. Anyone that wants to use it just needs to enable it.  Food 25px-Surprise.png  00:44, January 30, 2013 (UTC)
The "Rename" button doesn't always work, sometimes it says the page doesn't exist. Apart from that, seems great. B0lGGoQ.gifOz   18:21, January 29, 2013 (UTC)
One sec, looking into it.  Food 25px-Surprise.png  23:35, January 29, 2013 (UTC)
Fixed  Food 25px-Surprise.png  00:44, January 30, 2013 (UTC)

Okay, on my side the buttons disappeared and the drop down button won't drop down to give me the option to rename or delete. Is this happening only on my side or is this happening to everyone? The Americanized Brony13:48, January 30, 2013 (UTC)

Okay, I noticed that this is going on all over the wiki on my side. I think this may be happening to some other users because I noticed a slow down in talk section in the wiki. The Americanized Brony13:58, January 30, 2013 (UTC)
I think it's fixed. The Americanized Brony14:30, January 30, 2013 (UTC)
Wikis was working on their core JS earlier today. Everything should start working normally again as caches update.  Food 25px-Surprise.png  14:38, January 30, 2013 (UTC)
