Translate the PagePopups extension if it is available at translatewiki.net

The PagePopups extension makes <span class="mw-pagepopup">[[Link]]</span> transforming into a popup, which shows the complete text (scrolling if necessary) of the page [[Link]].

(Does not work!) Note that you can put more than one link into <span class="mw-pagepopup">: <span class="mw-pagepopup">[[Link1]] | [[Link2]]</span>.

Installation edit

  • Download and move the extracted PagePopups folder to your extensions/ directory.
    Developers and code contributors should install the extension from Git instead, using:cd extensions/
    git clone https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/mediawiki/extensions/PagePopups
  • Add the following code at the bottom of your LocalSettings.php file:
    wfLoadExtension( 'PagePopups' );
  •   Done – Navigate to Special:Version on your wiki to verify that the extension is successfully installed.

Bugs edit

  • Add arrow to the popup
  • Options or configuration for specifying popup size
  • Make place (up, down, left, right) where the popup shows configurable
  • Wrong size of the popup for small pages, also the size "jumps" when resizing a small page with the mouse (why?)
  • Popup link inside a popup work wrongly (the new popup is displayed at the top left corner of the window instead of its proper place)
