Extensions wishlist

  • Something like Replace Text, except the search field can be blank. In other words, it adds some text to the beginning of every page, regardless of content.
A challenger appears, but it doesn't query all the pages matching criteria first. - Scarred Sun (talk) 07:51, 4 November 2017 (CDT)
Better than nothing I suppose. It's possible to generate lists of pages with ReplaceText or DPL and then paste them in. - Hivebrain (talk) 21:56, 4 November 2017 (CDT)
Not quite the same, but a nice alternative to uploading multiple files without UploadLocal? - Scarred Sun (talk) 07:51, 4 November 2017 (CDT)
It doesn't have the benefit of compression, but could be useful nonetheless. - Hivebrain (talk) 21:56, 4 November 2017 (CDT)
