Under the "tagging" section in GWWT, there is a "more" option. Are there going to be more options added to that, because right now there is only the image needed tag and map needed tag under there. the "more" option doesnt give anything else. Should it be removed or are we expecting things to go under that section? ~User Wandering Traveler Oie User Wandering Traveler Sig2.png Wandering Traveler 15:57, 1 June 2008 (UTC)

It is the same "more" section as the "more" when on image pages; the more is just to show the list instead of selecting one per default. For all what you can expect and what not, please read the sections above. poke | talk 18:24, 1 June 2008 (UTC)

Feature request: diffwith example guild template[edit]

Would it be possible to have a link added to the GWWT sidebar (for the Guild: namespace only) that links to a diffwith of the current page with the prefilled template from the Createbox for guild pages? That way it'd be easy to see what modifications any new page had from the template (or lack thereof). Go to Aiiane's Talk page (Aiiane - talk - contribs) 08:33, 10 June 2008 (UTC)

It would always show all the content which has been added etc. Also the modifications done to the templates (If any have been done) are easily visible when you look at the page.. Otherwise it wouldnt make sense to modify them anyway tho. So I dont really think we need that ;) --SilentStorm User SilentStorm MySig.png 12:06, 10 June 2008 (UTC)
You would be surprised, SilentStorm. For instance, some people have erronously tried to add the information to the page inside the comment tags included in the example guide template, instead of outside of them, resulting in items that don't show up on the page itself (making it look like a content-less page), but are there in the code. Furthermore, the diff format is much more readable than trying to compare by hand. Go to Aiiane's Talk page (Aiiane - talk - contribs) 17:42, 11 June 2008 (UTC)
This is definitely a good idea; I'll think about it. poke | talk 19:55, 11 June 2008 (UTC)
This was added in v1.1.3. poke | talk 15:40, 3 September 2008 (UTC)

Contrib counter[edit]

does 'FF and standard compliant browsers' exclude IE? - Y0_ich_halt User Y0 ich halt sig.jpg 16:37, 29 August 2008 (UTC)

yes :P poke | talk 19:56, 29 August 2008 (UTC)
Including IE 8 Beta 2? Its suppose to be standard compliant. Dominator Matrix 20:04, 29 August 2008 (UTC)
i tested IE 6 and 7, don't know about 8b though. - Y0_ich_halt User Y0 ich halt sig.jpg 20:13, 29 August 2008 (UTC)
Yes, IE8b2 is included. It is still missing the easy way for XPath support and as I was too lazy to implement the IE way in this script as well, it doesn't work :P poke | talk 20:54, 29 August 2008 (UTC)

v1.1.3 - "diff last" vs. "last diff"[edit]

discuss fight! poke | talk 15:42, 3 September 2008 (UTC)

I preferred "diff last" :P. Could you change it just for me? Thanks! --User Brains12 Spiral.png Brains12 \ talk 15:43, 3 September 2008 (UTC)
I liked the "diff last" as well; it is old-skool, and I think there was a valid reason in the beginning when I added it (but I can't remember it). So I basically want to ask what others would prefer, so read my first comment again! :D poke | talk 15:45, 3 September 2008 (UTC)
"Difference with last" makes more sense than "last difference". The former is explicitly the difference with the last revision, while the latter could be the last difference that I saw, or whatever. Duh! --User Brains12 Spiral.png Brains12 \ talk 15:47, 3 September 2008 (UTC)
"Diff last" is better :/ -- User indochine dsk tree.png Indochine talk 15:50, 3 September 2008 (UTC)
Diff is the keyword, and I like to read as little as possible, so I prefer having it first :P Also, I'm so used to it now. - anja talk 15:52, 3 September 2008 (UTC)
My sentiments exactly. --User Brains12 Spiral.png Brains12 \ talk 15:53, 3 September 2008 (UTC)
"Difference with last" - there it was! That was the thing I was thinking about in the beginning (I think) - so "diff last" is indeed better, or do you want just "diff"? poke | talk 15:55, 3 September 2008 (UTC)
Diff last. --User Brains12 Spiral.png Brains12 \ talk 15:56, 3 September 2008 (UTC)
Diff last, or last edit (last diff just sounds strange). -- User Sig.png 17:05, 3 September 2008 (UTC)

(Reset indent) Voting for diff last :) It sounds better. I was glad when that Change from the change list wasnt really there :) --SilentStorm User SilentStorm MySig.png 22:20, 12 September 2008 (UTC)

It was there, for a short while ;) poke | talk 22:53, 12 September 2008 (UTC)


Does this work over there yet? And if so, is it fine to copy it there? Nbajammer User Nbajammer sig.png 21:02, 6 September 2008 (UTC)

i'd say we let him handle that and export it once GW2W has the required extensions. - Y0_ich_halt User Y0 ich halt sig.jpg 21:09, 6 September 2008 (UTC)
No, it would not be fine to copy it to GW2W. Also it would work properly there and I do not plan to have a full GWWT for GW2W as long as there is nothing that would actually need GWWT. poke | talk 21:12, 6 September 2008 (UTC)
WTB diff last button. WTB delete/stub/cleanup tags. :) --User Brains12 Spiral.png Brains12 \ talk 23:17, 6 September 2008 (UTC)


Um yeah, have you considered making it scroll with the window? SOOO if you happen to be half way down the page, but can still see the tag you need in the portlet, you don't have to scroll up again to click the save button? *cough* inactive guild button *cough* :) Ale_Jrb (talk) 11:05, 7 September 2008 (UTC)

This was brought up before by Galil and if I remember right the reason why it wasn't done was due to the possibility of when people use multiple tags; say stub, cleanup, image needed & map needed; it would end up going off the screen on lower resolutions. This would mean there is no way to click the tag and save button or abort. --Kakarot Talk 12:59, 7 September 2008 (UTC)
Well it coulllld be set so that if the box goes over a certain size, it gains an internal scrollbar... but that's maybe more trouble than it's worth ^^. Nevermind then :). Ale_Jrb (talk) 13:24, 7 September 2008 (UTC)
Hmm, could you make it scroll with the window only in image space? I don't want to have to plug in my big monitor in every time. Also, couldn't the borders and spacing be adjusted in a way to save room? --TalkAntioch 16:26, 7 September 2008 (UTC)
Hmm, thought this was already resolved, but here is my answer: As I said before somewhere, I won't give the GWWT window a fixed position in the browser window for said reasons - at least not in the current version/with the current layout GWWT has.
If you want to give it a fixed position, feel free to edit that, and customize the public GWWT styles for your own needs in your monobook.css. For a fixed position for example just add
div#gwwtInfoBox { position: fixed !important; }

GWWT ContributionCount[edit]

For some reason, this does not work? I wanted to check my contributions but when I enter my name and press Enter, nothing happens? Nbajammer User Nbajammer sig.png 21:37, 12 September 2008 (UTC)

Unfortunately it only works when using Firefox :/ --SilentStorm User SilentStorm MySig.png 22:18, 12 September 2008 (UTC)
Yes, Internet Explorer lacks a standardized feature that is needed for that script, so it is not supported by now. poke | talk 22:53, 12 September 2008 (UTC)
You know, it's easy to make ajax work on IE - you just need to invoke new ActiveXObject("Msxml2.XMLHTTP") if the standard one fails. Just thought I'd point it out, in case you didn't know. In my experience, it's one of the few things that it's worth making it run on IE, just because it's so easy. Ale_Jrb (talk) 14:58, 13 September 2008 (UTC)
it's always worth making things not work in ie to make people use good browsers. - Y0_ich_halt User Y0 ich halt sig.jpg 15:06, 13 September 2008 (UTC)

Just pointing it out. :P Ale_Jrb (talk) 09:18, 14 September 2008 (UTC)
I do know, Ale Jrb, but I was never and I am still not interested in making it working for all browsers. poke | talk 13:49, 14 September 2008 (UTC)
Can I ask why? --User Brains12 Spiral.png Brains12 \ talk 14:06, 14 September 2008 (UTC)
Ultimate lazyness! And nobody asked for it btw. I just remember people saying that it doesn't work on IE :P poke | talk 14:08, 14 September 2008 (UTC)
Or you could say that it would be better for IE to be made to comply with standards than to make GWWT the contrib counter work with IE. I know IE7 at least doesn't comply and I seem to recall Poke mentioning something about IE8 beta not either in some way or another; something I have no idea where it was written. --Kakarot Talk 20:51, 14 September 2008 (UTC)

short cut[edit]

i propose GWWT or something to redirect here. - Y0_ich_halt User Y0 ich halt sig.jpg 15:09, 18 September 2008 (UTC)

No redirect from main namespace to user namespace ;) Also User:Poke/GWWT works and there is a link on the GWWT window (and in the edit summary), so enough links imo :P poke | talk 15:56, 18 September 2008 (UTC)
I know this edit is a bit late, but Sandbox redirects from mainspace to GWW space C4K3 User C4K3 Signature.jpg Talk 16:42, 21 September 2009 (UTC)
so what? :O poke | talk 16:44, 21 September 2009 (UTC)
Meh just notifying, if I were you I'd add this to GWW:RFC and start a debate, perhaps you'd be allowed to make GWWT redirect here, but I suppose writing User:Poke/GWWT is almost as fast C4K3 User C4K3 Signature.jpg Talk 18:17, 21 September 2009 (UTC)

Is it possible with GWWT to put a comment with the Inactive guild tag that directs editors to remove the tag if the guild is in fact active? --Wyn's Talk page Wyn 18:35, 14 November 2008 (UTC)

Isn't such a note on the inactive guild tag itself? poke | talk 23:16, 14 November 2008 (UTC)
The problem is that it's not visible when they are in edit mode. Putting in a <!-- comment --> Would let them see that when they are editing. --Wyn's Talk page Wyn 18:00, 16 November 2008 (UTC)
Ah, that is what you mean. Sure, that is possible, what text would you like? poke | talk 18:24, 16 November 2008 (UTC)
<!--EDITORS: Remove this tag if this guild is active.--> Something that simple would be it is next to the tag please. --Wyn's Talk page Wyn 19:53, 16 November 2008 (UTC)

GWWT portlet position[edit]

As you have noticed, the search box was moved up based on this discussion. So my question is: Do you want the the search portlet above the GWWT one, or is it ok below (as it is right now)? poke | talk 17:21, 17 December 2008 (UTC)

I personally would like it above GWWT. --Wyn's Talk page Wyn 17:29, 17 December 2008 (UTC)
I like it (the search box) below GWWT. Would it be possible to have a variable in our personal .js that would tell it whether to be above or below the search box? ¬ Wizårdbõÿ777(talk) 17:41, 17 December 2008 (UTC)
Yeah, that's a good idea and would be possible. I still would like to hear the preference, so that I can set the default the the most wanted setting. poke | talk 17:43, 17 December 2008 (UTC)
Search above gwwt, otherwise moving search was unnecessary for me. :) - anja talk 18:26, 17 December 2008 (UTC)

I prefer having GWWT above Search. --User Brains12 Spiral.png Brains12 \ talk 21:38, 17 December 2008 (UTC)
Below would help in tagging images and things like that, but I am fine either way. --TalkAntioch 22:09, 17 December 2008 (UTC)
Although I use GWWT a lot more than search both fit on my screen at the same time so I'm fine either way. --Kakarot Talk 00:05, 18 December 2008 (UTC)
I moved the portlet below the search panel now; if you want it in another way, please check the configuration section on the GWWT page for the new parameter - the example there does exactly restore the old position. poke | talk 19:27, 21 December 2008 (UTC)

Image tagging and redirects[edit]

As per a question here, GWWT seems to place tags above redirects, breaking said redirect. Granted, manual tagging is easy, but is there a way for GWWT to recognize redirects and place tags below the line? --User Wandering Traveler Sig2.png Wandering Traveler 15:40, 23 December 2008 (UTC)

There was no Problem with that in past MW Versions I think (not sure tho). But another Problem that occured after the MW Update seems to be that Image Redirects doesnt work at all anymore. (I think we had a similar issue after the Update to MW 1.12 aswell) --SilentStorm User SilentStorm MySig.png 19:22, 23 December 2008 (UTC)
ArenaNet is looking into fixing the redirect problem with the version update here. --Wyn's Talk page Wyn 19:33, 23 December 2008 (UTC)

So there were no problems? Good then ^^ poke | talk 17:26, 7 March 2009 (UTC)

Watchlist, Image -> File[edit]

Your watchlist sort thing puts files under the Main namespace heading instead of under File (or Image). --User Brains12 circle sig.png Brains12 \ talk 14:10, 21 March 2009 (UTC)

Fixed. poke | talk 12:31, 23 March 2009 (UTC)

Multiple of the same type of tagging[edit]

Not a necessity, but perhaps a nicety - currently if you click the same item more than once in the tools panel, it'll be put into the 'Tag and Save' queue multiple times, making the window bigger each time. Since I can't really think of a situation in which you'd want more than one of the same tag for a given page, perhaps you could add a quick check to keep track of which tags are already "lined up" to be added and not add it to the queue a second time if you click on the item again? (Example: clicking twice on "stub" currently results in two "Tag this page as a stub." blocks, after the change clicking it twice would keep it to only 1). Go to Aiiane's Talk page (Aiiane - talk - contribs) 08:14, 23 March 2009 (UTC)

Yeah, I know this is a problem with the current GWWT, but it would require some more changes to get a check implemented. The next major version however will have a much more friendly tagging system, so if this is not too urgent, I would like to keep it as it is for now :) poke | talk 12:29, 23 March 2009 (UTC)

Yay GWWT[edit]

You know, I didn't install this forever because I didn't think I would use it much, and indeed I don't use the sidebar taggy things often, but I like the user nav tabs and I now think I would sorely miss the Diff Last button if it were gone :D. Thanks. --Star Weaver 18:24, 9 June 2009 (UTC)

Heh, well, the only other wiki i've bothered editing more than a comment or two was the BeyondUnreal one back when it was running on PyMoinMoin or WETH wasn't mediawiki. I should probably go poke them with a stick one of these days ... --Star Weaver 20:44, 9 June 2009 (UTC)

User image template change[edit]

moved from User talk:Poke

Heya poke! I've been using your gwwt watchlist sorter for a while now, but since the wiki has been updated to 1.15 (I presume, I wasn't around at the time of the update) it occasionally doesn't do what it is supposed to. By that I mean, when I click Special:Watchlist the list will not be sorted. If I then purge the server cache, the list is sorted. I haven't made any alterations to my monobook.js of late, so I figured the recent wikimedia update must have changed something (is this the new version of the image cache problem - the gwwt cache problem? Does that even make sense? O.o) which prevents part of gwwt from functioning properly. I hope this gets the message along, rereading this I see this post is pretty, well, vague, but I don't really know what I'm talking about here anyway. I know nothing of javascript. In short, help, my watchlist stopped sorting itself! WhyUser talk:Why Are We Fighting 00:16, 29 July 2009 (UTC)

Just to note: Wiki hasn't been updated to 1.15. Still using 1.14. IT's still ironing out some issues with 1.15 before they push it live, last I heard. - Tanetris 01:06, 29 July 2009 (UTC)
Oh, well, I might aswell rephrase the original post to "I know nothing of wikis". :P By the way, I'm using Google Chrome for browser, which might actually be the cause of the trouble. WhyUser talk:Why Are We Fighting 01:36, 29 July 2009 (UTC)

Hm, when you don't see the watchlist sorted, does the GWWT portlet appear on the left side? Or is Chrome displaying any JavaScript errors? poke | talk 13:29, 29 July 2009 (UTC)
Actually, indeed, all things added by gwwt disappear. I've occasionally have it happen on other pages too now. And nope, no errors. If it's too much trouble to fix, don't bother, I'll just refresh when it disappears :) WhyUser talk:Why Are We Fighting 17:03, 29 July 2009 (UTC)
Well the problem then is that GWWT isn't initialized at all, which is most probably because the init script isn't called. Reason for that could be that the page doesn't stop loading (this happens to some pages sometimes, that it is loading although everything is there). And GWWT (1.x though) is only displayed when the page is completed and everything is displayed. poke | talk 17:43, 29 July 2009 (UTC)

Two questions about the future of GWWT.[edit]

The missing speedy deletion criteria will be added, no doubt about that.
But here are my questions:
Will there be additional options of {{arenanet image}} like {{arenanet image|icon}}, {{arenanet image|render}}, {{arenanet image|concept art}} and other subcategories? Of course these selections should take as small amount of space as possible.
When GWWT will be available in GW2W or is it already? - J.P.ContributionsTalk 14:40, 28 August 2009 (UTC)

Only one answer about the future of GWWT: It will be awesome ;) poke | talk 15:00, 28 August 2009 (UTC)
I sure hope so :D
But i think you can give an answer about the functionality on GW2W. Even when the page says this tool is for GWW and GW2W, there are no instructions how to install it to your GW2W account. So i guess it won't be available, yet. - J.P.ContributionsTalk 22:57, 28 August 2009 (UTC)
it's not available on GW2W yet (the relevant pages haven't been set up). I believe poke told us that GWWT will be available on GW2W when GWWT 2.0 is available =p (hence the aforementioned awesome). ~ PheNaxKian User PheNaxKian sig.jpg 23:12, 28 August 2009 23:12, 28 August 2009 (UTC)
Next one is even v2.0? It's gonna be pretty different awesome in that case. - J.P.ContributionsTalk 23:19, 28 August 2009 (UTC)
well i don't know if it will be v2.0, but that's how extreme he made it sound on IRC =p. ~ PheNaxKian User PheNaxKian sig.jpg 12:19, 29 August 2009
Yes, the current version is not available for GW2W and won't be made available there. The new version however will be available on both wikis, and it will not differ between GWWT and "GW2WT". And Phen is right, the next version really will be v2. I decided to skip the idea of v1.2 and will put everything new and old together into the new major release I am brainstorming about for multiple months already. And yes, GWWT2 will bring a lot changes with it. poke | talk 13:27, 29 August 2009 (UTC)

I now have 10125 edits as my preferences shows. But when i use the contribution counter it says i have only 9655 edits. Is this related to the recent update of the wiki and the bugs followed by it? Or did this update made the counter outdated? - J.P.FeedbackTalk 19:39, 4 October 2009 (UTC)

I might be wrong, but I imagine that the first number includes deleted edits, where as pokes script doesn't. ~ PheNaxKian User PheNaxKian sig.jpg 20:08, 4 October 2009
It has always before shown the same amount in preferences and with the counter :P - J.P.FeedbackTalk 21:02, 4 October 2009 (UTC)
The edit count in the preferences was broken since the time GW2W was created and the user database was linked. The reason for that is quite simple, GW2W uses GWW's user database, and the contribution count is stored within that database. So as you can imagine, making contributions on GW2W or GWW will both increase the counter. Now someone would think GWW contribution count + GW2W contribution count = contribution count in the preferences; sadly that is not the case, for currently unknown reasons. I guess it is somehow related to the way preferences are cached on each wiki before they are merged in the single database (at least that is my theory based on recent events). Plus I'm not sure if deleted contributions are included and how log entries are counted.
My script however is based on all real existing contributions that were made by a user (basically it's going through Special:Contributions and looking at each entry), so you can be sure that this number is correct. poke | talk 23:02, 4 October 2009 (UTC)

GWWT showing up twice[edit]

Hey Poke,

After I installed your recent changes blocker, everything from GWWT is showing up twice. Example here. I'm not sure what to remove from my monobook.js, can you help me out please? First time I've ever had this issue :\ - Mini Me talk 18:38, 2 March 2010

You load the GWWT code twice in your monobook. Remove one of them, and it works again (the addScript line for example). poke | talk 19:22, 2 March 2010 (UTC)

GW2W (2)[edit]

So about a year and a half ago you said it wouldn't work on the GW2W, and that it wasn't very needed, does that still stand today because while it still doesn't work on the GW2W, the first line says that it was designed to make editing easier for both wikis?

Chrome Save Bug[edit]

GWWT is being buggy for me with chrome. For inactive guilds it mostly autosaves the edit like it should, while ~30% of times it doesn't auto save the edit. This is kinda annoying, don't know if its just the inactive tag or all of them. I have recorded a video here as a demonstration of the bug. --Dominator Matrix 03:44, 25 April 2010 (UTC)

Quick Links[edit]

I used GWWT about 2 years ago before quitting GW, I started playing again recently and came back to editing the wiki, I updated the GWWT verion in my monobook but lost a link that I used to have to the Special:UncategorizedFiles page either just above or just below the search bar. Is there any way to re-add the link in the latest version?

ContributionCount as a TopLink[edit]

Is it possible to lauch it like that? You know, the links you can add next to your User/User talk, Preferences, Watchlist, etc? - J.P.User J.P. sigicon.pngTalk 09:08, 17 June 2010 (UTC)

Not in it's current form. -- Wyn User Wynthyst sig icon2.png talk 11:08, 17 June 2010 (UTC)
Simply add a link yourself. The contribution counter is not a direct part of GWWT and as such will not be officially available there. poke | talk 21:05, 17 June 2010 (UTC)
If you mean copying the code to your address bar, i know how it works.
I thought of adding a TopLink for my personal monobook.js to make it a fast and simple click-and-type. I'm sick of going here every time. - J.P.User J.P. sigicon.pngTalk 09:44, 19 June 2010 (UTC)
I think hes saying add your own tab into your GWWT and make it link to the contribution counter javascript. ~Shard User Shard Sig Icon.png 10:16, 19 June 2010 (UTC)
I looked for it, but i have no idea how to do it :/ - J.P.User J.P. sigicon.pngTalk 08:23, 20 June 2010 (UTC)
"Simply add a link yourself." Nothing but failure so far :S - J.P.User J.P. sigicon.pngTalk 13:01, 20 June 2010 (UTC)
Looking at your monobook.js, I thought you actually would know, how to add links yourself: ( new PortletArea( 'p-tb' ) ).addItem( null, 'Contribution counter', "javascript:addScript('User:Poke/GuildWarsWikiTools/ContributionCount.js');void(0);" );. poke | talk 17:04, 20 June 2010 (UTC)
I love you!
By the way, most of it there is copied from elsewhere :S
I just change things here and there... - J.P.User J.P. sigicon.pngTalk 17:10, 20 June 2010 (UTC)


This is awesome! Thanks for producing/maintaining this.  — Tennessee Ernie Ford (TEF) 18:48, 1 July 2010 (UTC)

{{guild cleanup}} in GWWT[edit]

I can't place the tag with GWWT if i leave any kind of edit summary :P - J.P.User J.P. sigicon.pngTalk 13:30, 9 August 2010 (UTC)

Guild and User image tagging[edit]

There may be allusions to this above, but I was wondering if Guild image and User image tagging could come with a line where we could insert the guild or user name, creating {{user image|User Name}}. Could it be something similar to how the Guild cleanup tag works? G R E E N E R 23:20, 10 January 2011 (UTC)


After seeing that Stephane is asking whether the wiki should move to vector for the default skin, I'm wondering what exactly stops GWWT working with vector? (I suspect its something along the lines of "the search box is renamed to simpleSearch instead of p-search" but I'm not sure.) -Chieftain Alex 18:58, 13 March 2013 (UTC)
