Summary: Local communities should be able to customize the
Vector toolbar and booklets
Product: MediaWiki extensions
CC: roan.katt...@gmail.com, amil...@wikimedia.org,
In the days before the Vector roll out, the main way different wikis had to
offer their users different Unicode characters was [[MediaWiki:Edittools]].
This meant that each wiki had their own set of characters that their users
could easily insert in the articles.
After the new skin was introduced, it would make sense to dispose of the old
EditTools (it's difficult to go back and forth between the top and the bottom
of the editbox). In order for that to be possible, local communities should
have the possibility to either:
1. Edit the current booklets/toolbars
2. Add new toolbars/booklets
3. Both of the above.
The customization should be made by reading pages in the MediaWiki namespace,
so that any sysop could do it and the system should be as non-technical as
One proposal would be to have a system similar to the one used for gadgets:
new_button := button_name|button_picture|pre_code|peri_code|post_code
page_containing_booklet_entries := unicode_code|symbol_to_be_shown
This should be implemented along with bug 23065 in order to allow more
fine-grained tuning of the toolbar.
