The first thing to know about MediaWiki and JavaScript is that the site administrator can customize the wiki installation by simply modifying the article MediaWiki:Common.js

For instance, if you put the JavaScript code for wikEd in there, it will make the WikEd editor available to all users of the local wiki.

Debugging JavaScript[edit | edit source]

  1. Access the developer tools of your browser
    • Chrome CTRL + SHIFT + J
    • Firefox CTRL + SHIFT + I
  2. Go to the console tab (look for errors)
  3. append ?debug=true to the URL and reload the page. This will give you non-minified JavaScript.
