Make Special:GlobalWatchlist more discoverable

Discussion

  • It's hard, and the global watchlist links can be accessed through meta-wiki. Thingofme (talk) 17:04, 22 January 2022 (UTC)
    why do you think it is hard? Special:GlobalPreferences and Special:CentralAuth can already be accessed through Special:Preferences on every wiki. Why not make the same for Special:GlobalWatchlist? Heanor (talk) 21:32, 22 January 2022 (UTC)
  • This is my provisional solution (global.js):
    if ( mw.config.get( 'wgCanonicalSpecialPageName' ) === 'Watchlist' ) {
    	mw.loader.using( [ 'mediawiki.util' ] ).then( function () {
    		mw.util.addPortletLink(
    			'p-views',
    			'//meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Special:GlobalWatchlist',
    			'Global watchlist',
    			'',
    			'Global watchlist'
    		);
    	} );
    }

    Good, works for me! But maybe not enough. But definitely should be implemented for all registered users by default. Heanor (talk) 15:12, 23 January 2022 (UTC)
  • Hi. I'm the developer of the GlobalWatchlist extension and still have some grant money to work on it, but help from Community Tech would be appreciated and I would be happy to coordinate with them if they are willing to review. I haven't work on it yet since I wasn't clear how it should appear from a design perspective though. --DannyS712 (talk) 03:12, 3 February 2022 (UTC)
