Description lɛʁi לערי ריינהארט 2005-11-27 05:38:20 UTC
This is a counterpart for
Bug 419: Make it easier to add links to the sidebar (navbar)

Hallo!

According to Brion there is no way to add new items to the "toolbox" using
MediaWiki messages. 

Some wiki's may require adaptations to the toolbox as additional links for
transliterations etc.

Please implement this in a similar fassion as [[MediaWiki:Sidebar]].

Thanks in advance! best regards reinhardt [[user:gangleri]]

The reason I didn't do this when I implemented MediaWiki:Sidebar is that the
toolbox requires complex logic while the Sidebar doesn't, Some links are only
displayed on certain classes of pages, some are displayed differently when oldid
equals a certain thing etc. etc. It's not simple to represend that in a syntax
like the sidebar.

made a workaround at

Thanks Ævar for the comment!

Could we have a Toolbox *trailer* as [[MediaWiki:Toolboxtrailer]] which would be
appended to whatever the "complex logic" requires / generates? I know there a
lot of dependencies there depending on namespace, existence of pages etc.

What would you append there that you couldn't put in the regular navigation bar,
might I ask?

See [[wiktionary:yi:MediaWiki:Sidebar]] which contains links to utilities / tools:
a) The first one "shraybmashinke
 - שרײַבמאַשינקע" is quite powerfull because it includes a spelling checker,
different transliteration features, various character conversion tools and also
a .gif / .pdf generator.
b) The second one is also a typewriter.
c) A link to a list of additional utilities could be added as to many of the
links mentioned at the moment at [[wiktionary:yi:project:Guide_to_vikiverterbukh]]

These are *tools* and should not belong to *navigation*. As it is done now
[[MediaWiki:Toolbox]] apears twice.

Comment 7 Splarka 2009-03-02 01:53:22 UTC
With enhanced sidebar over-positioning possible the syntax could simply be (to append):

* TOOLBOX
** my link|link text

One problem with this would be... you'd *have* to define "* TOOLBOX", which, if you want it to appear below something like the new collection extension portlet, can't be defined.
