[edit] Usage

  • This template can be used to display a status indicator along the top of your user page and/or user talk page.
  • It accepts five parameters that should be placed in Special:Mypage/Status: online, busy, around, offline, sleep
  • It is compatible with the Qui status system developed by TheDJ
  • You can also import (or copy) wikipedia:en:User:Xenocidic/statusChanger2.js (or just manually update your status)
  • Will only work in the user/user talk namespaces.


By default, the output will be as follows
  • Status: Online. - online
  • Status: Busy. - busy
  • Status: Around. - around
  • Status: Custom. - custom. (if sleep= is defined)
  • Status: Offline. - offline
  • Status: Sleeping. - sleep (default)
  • Status: Unknown. - if your status is not being reported correctly


The first parameter is optional and may be used to point to a status page other than Special:Mypage/Status


Can also accept named parameters
  • link: a status indicator subpage to explain the terms (i.e. wikipedia:en:User talk:Xenocidic/Status)
  • offset: can be used to offset the status display further to the left
  • offsettop: can be used to offset further down
  • sleep: redefine the "sleep" parameter to anything you like
Example usage
  • {{Statustop|link=User:Xenocidic/status|offset=500}}
  • {{Statustop|User:SomeOtherUser/Status}} - (useful if a bot-op wants to display THEIR status on the bot page rather than the bots, for example)
  • {{Statustop|sleep=IRC}} - for setting the custom parameter

[edit] Installation

To install Qui, including all future updates:

  1. Copy the text below and paste it into the bottom of your monobook.js file:
importScript('User:TheDJ/qui.js');
  1. Save the new monobook.js page, and
  2. Completely refresh your browser by bypassing your cache.
  3. Done! After a while you should start seeing a sort of dot in the top right corner of Wikipedia pages. This is Qui. Move your mouse over the dot to open the menu.

You may wish to re-configure some of the default settings of Qui, or to create your own customized skin.
