MoreMenu is a script that adds "Page" and, if applicable, "User" dropdown menus to the toolbar. It is the successor to Haza-w's Drop-down menus gadget and was heavily influenced by it.

This gadget adds up to two dropdown menus to the menu bar containing links to useful common tasks, user/page logs, analytic tools/statistics, and tools for administrators. For all but special pages the Page menu is visible. The User menu is visible only on pages pertaining to a user, including contributions pages.

Some links are only available if you have certain rights (block for block links, for example). Additionally, menu items in the User menu may appear based on conditions of the user you are viewing, such as their user rights, or if they've had current or previous blocks, etc. For example the Block log item in the Blocks submenu only appears if that user has been blocked in the past. Some links are also visible only in certain namespaces and on certain projects.


Installing globally (recommended)Edit

Add the following to your global.js:


This will import all the core modules and give you a functioning script and make it available on all wikis.

English Wikipedia extensionEdit

If you are a user of the English Wikipedia, browse to your common.js and import the enwiki extension, which adds menu items for RfAs/RfBs and XfDs, where applicable.

mw.loader.using(['mediawiki.util', 'mediawiki.api'], function () {

Similar extensions can be added for any wiki, or may already exist on your wiki. See Customization below for more.

Menus jumping on page loadEdit

If you use the Vector skin, you prevent the tabs at the top ("Edit", "View history", etc.) from jumping around. For English users, add the following to the top of your global.css:

@import url('');

For non-English, replace the .en in the path to your desired language. See Special:PrefixIndex/MediaWiki:Gadget-MoreMenu-pagestyles for a list of supported languages. If your language is missing, let the maintainers know on the talk page.

Installing as a gadgetEdit

Your local wiki may have MoreMenu available in the gadget preferences. Installing globally is recommended, however, so that MoreMenu is available on all wikis.

If you are an interface administrator and would like to install MoreMenu as a gadget on your wiki, follow these steps:

  1. Create MediaWiki:Gadget-MoreMenu-local.js with the following:
  2. Add the following to MediaWiki:Gadgets-definition:
  3. Add a description for the gadget at MediaWiki:Gadget-MoreMenu-local, preferably linking to this page ([[meta:MoreMenu]])
  4. Optional: You can set up a peer gadget that prevents the menus from "jumping" on page load in the Vector skin. See Peer gadget for more information.
  5. Optional: Extend MoreMenu by adding links that specific to your wiki, for example links to a user's Request for Adminship. Create MediaWiki:Gadget-MoreMenu.extension.js with your extension code, and modify your MediaWiki:Gadgets-definition to use it:


Translations are pulled from MediaWiki:Gadget-MoreMenu.messages.lang.js, with MediaWiki:Gadget-MoreMenu.messages.en.js as the fallback. To add new translations, make a protected edit request on the talk page, listing the key/value pairs of the messages. See Special:PrefixIndex/MediaWiki:Gadget-MoreMenu.messages for a list of currently supported languages.

Please submit changes to the English translations as a pull request on the GitHub repository.


MoreMenu can be extended with custom links and functionality. Links should be added only after the moremenu.ready hook has been fired. See the examples below.

Adding custom linksEdit

  • MoreMenu.addLink(menu, name, url, insertAfter)Adds the link to the given menu.
  • MoreMenu.addSubmenuLink(menu, submenu, name, url, insertAfter)Adds the link to the given submenu.

Here are the descriptions for each parameter:

  • menu — The ID of the top-level menu under which to place the link. Either "user" or "page".
  • submenu — The ID of the submenu under which to place the link. For example, "analysis" or "page-logs".
  • name — The title for the link. This can be either a raw string or a message key.
  • url — The URL for the link. Use mw.util.getUrl() for internal links.
  • insertAfter (optional) — The ID of an existing link after which to place the link. You can use false to force the link to be put at the top, and true to force it to the bottom. Otherwise, if no link with the given ID is found, or this parameter is omitted entirely, the link will be placed into the menu alphabetically.


To add a link to under the "Page" menu, add the following code to your common.js page:

mw.hook('moremenu.ready').add(function (config) {
    // add more MoreMenu.addLink(); instances here...

The config object contains a lot of data. In most cases you want your link to contain the target username ( or the page name ( If these are external links, you may need to use the encoded names, as with config.targetUser.encodedName and See Configuration values for a list of all the available data.

Say you wanted to show a link to the user's "Requests for Adminship" pages under the "Analysis" submenu:

mw.hook('moremenu.ready').add(function (config) {
        mw.util.getUrl('Special:PrefixIndex/Wikipedia:Requests for Adminship/' +
    // add more links here...

Now let's say you wanted to add a "RfXs" submenu, with links to RfAs, request for bureaucratship, etc., and only show these links if those pages exist. See Links to pages matching a pattern for how to do this!


Main article: MoreMenu/Advanced

In addition to MoreMenu.addLink() and MoreMenu.addSubmenuLink(), you can take advantage of the logic MoreMenu provides you in constructing your link based on some parameters, such as the user's permissions, or adding an entirely new submenu of links.

See MoreMenu/Advanced for more information.

Peer gadgetEdit

This documentation is for setting up MoreMenu as a gadget on your local wiki. See Menus jumping on page load for user installation.

When top-level menus are added in the Vector skin, the "Read", "Edit", and "View history" tabs will shift. This means that if you are working very quickly, you might accidentally click in the wrong place before MoreMenu finishes loading. To prevent this, you can use a peer gadget to keep the space available.

First, check Special:PrefixIndex/MediaWiki:Gadget-MoreMenu-pagestyles to see if there is CSS code for your language already that you can copy to your wiki. If there isn't, you'll need to calculate the widths. Once the gadget is enabled, you can run $('.mm-page').outerWidth() and $('.mm-user').outerWidth() to get the widths in pixels.

Once you have the widths, create MediaWiki:Gadget-MoreMenu-local-pagestyles.css with the following (in this case for English, and using em instead of px):

/*** VECTOR ***/

/* User menu */
.client-js .skin-vector.ns-2 #p-views,
.client-js .skin-vector.ns-3 #p-views,
.client-js > #p-views,
.client-js > #p-views,
.client-js > #p-views {
    padding-right: 3.68em;

/* Page menu */
.client-js .skin-vector:not(.ns-special) #p-views .vector-menu-content::after {
    content: '';
    display: inline-block;
    width: 3.85em;

Then update your gadget configuration accordingly:
