DetailsEdit

  • $skin: Skin rendering the UI
  • $title: Title being linked to
  • $section: Section to link to
  • $link: Default link
  • $result: Result (alter this to override the generated links)

Can be used to change, modify, add links on the right side of the section header. Also, there's a system message called editsection-brackets which allows you to customise the format of the edit links further to make them into images etc. The final result is wrapped in a span with class attribute set to "editsection" so that further CSS styles can be applied.
