Modification of Vector Skin[edit]

Vector skin is the coolest skin for Wikipedia IMHO. However, I created a custom CSS to modify the skin:

  • Restricts the main article content width to 800 pixels.
  • Centers it on screen.
  • Some minor stylization changes.
  • Rest of the page remains intact.

This shows Wikipedia articles in a much more readable format, even on large widescreen monitors, by avoiding the display of extremely long lines spanning from screen's edge to edge.

Here is my CSS if you wish to copy or derive from it: User:Agent007bond/vector.css

Here is a screenshot of how my user page would look like after applying the CSS: [1]

Filter out older contributions in the Contributions list[edit]

I wrote a little hack (it's been a while so I don't remember any sources used) to show only the latest contributions in the Contributions page. I found that when I make a lot of contributions to a few pages, I find they are all displayed in the Contributions page, but most of the time I am only interested in looking at the latest one (or just need to see which page I contributed to, but not what or how many contribs). Therefore I found the repetitions unnecessary for most of my uses for Contributions page.

The hack will add a toggle link at the top right of Contributions page. When the page is loaded, it will immediately find and hide away older contributions, showing only the latest contributions. When 'Show all contributions' is clicked, the hidden contributions are restored and page shows like a regular Contributions page. When 'Show latest contributions' is clicked, the older contributions are hidden again.

You can get the hack from User:Agent007bond/common.js. Note that this will not poll Wikipedia for more contributions, that is if your page loads up with 100 contribs and only 25 are shown, the rest 75 will just be hidden, but the hack will not poll for 75 other contribs from past history to add below to make the number 100 again.
