Standardise entries[edit]

I'm going through the page (and, eventually, the other pages) standardising and clarifying the entries for each tool. Additionally, I'm adding general descriptions of each tool in a list at the top of each category, so the viewer can get a quick overview of available tools before reading the more in-depth explanations. I propose the following structure:


==Category==
''Any general note, such as a reference to a [[Wikipedia:Searching]] under the search tools category.'' 

This category lists tools intended to {{{1}}}.

*'''[[#Tool1|Tool1]]''': Allows the user to {{{2}}} by {{{3}}}.
*'''[[#Tool2|Tool2]]''': Allows {{{4}}} through the use of {{{5}}}.
*'''[[#Tool2|Tool2]]''': Improves {{{6}}} on Wikipedia using {{{7}}}.

===Tool1===
'''Description''': An overview description, intended to explain the functionality and advantages.

'''Download instructions''':
#Step 1.
#Step 2.
#:''Note: {{{8}}}.
#Step 3.
#Step 4.

'''Usage''': In-depth explanation on how to use the tool, techniques, et cetera.

I'll be continuing the conversion to this before waiting for response. If others disagree, the changes can be modified or reverted easily enough. // Pathoschild 18:25, 25 October 2005 (UTC)

Note that the above structure has changed much since I began implementing it. // Pathoschild 23:06, 27 October 2005 (UTC)

About removals[edit]

I removed the sections JOCA Online Wikipedia for Mobile Phones and Clean a list of pages off your watchlist. The former is a derivative service of wikipedia, not a wikipedia tool. The latter is redundant, since the Wikipedia interface does this much more simply. If anyone disagrees, please add them back in manually or ask me to. // Pathoschild 23:06, 27 October 2005 (UTC)

Removed Speech Synthesis section[edit]

I have commented out the speech synthesis section for the following reasons:

  • The instructions did not indicate which third-party software was necessary. Apparently this includes the MBROLA speech synthesizer and a text-to-phoneme converter, and possibly other software (bplay?).
  • The code given works only for German text, since the txt2pho converter is specific to the German language. It is inappropriate to use it for English text.

These need instructions[edit]

I don't have a clue how these work, so I couldn't write instructions for them, otherwise, I would have. They were clogging up the project page, so I moved them here until instructions can be written.

Jesse's monobook.js[edit]

  • User:JesseW's collection of useful tools. - Lacking documentation (it's just my monobook.js) but contains a lot of useful tools, mostly cribbed from others, but some written by me. 10:20, 29 July 2005 (UTC)

Usage

Run this bookmarklet from the history page of the targeted article. It's a good way to see what happened since you last looked at the page. (Well, edited it, actually, but isn't that the same for most of us? ;-) )

Subpage format[edit]

The page was extremely hard to read, so I broke it down into a hierarchical structure. --Go for it! 20:36, 2 July 2006 (UTC)

Update "Windows Internet Explorer" item?[edit]

With the advent of Windows 10, the Edge browser has replaced Internet Explorer as the built-in Windows browser. I seldom use Edge, but I wonder whether the items listed for IE will work with Edge. Perhaps someone who is an Edge user should consider updating the Windows Internet Explorer page. Eddie Blick (talk) 03:09, 19 August 2016 (UTC)
