No link to Special:Recentchanges? It's a key tool . . . GreenKai 22:37, 31 March 2007 (PDT)

You know, I was kinda puzzled why that does not show up in the toolbox by default, along with a few of the other special pages. I was trying not to make the boxes on the side so long that they pushed the search box out of sight, so I was resisting (and am) adding too much junk. WhiteWizard 04:44, 1 April 2007 (PDT)
Can't see to add things to the toolbox through this interface. I'm guessing it's contents are hard coded in the theme or something? WhiteWizard 05:07, 1 April 2007 (PDT)
The toolbox is really meant for links relating to the current page (they are somewhat dynamic). As far as I know, its contents are predefined by the wiki engine. It would probably be possible to move the search box up if you were worried about it getting lost - it has a CSS id of p-search, class portlets. p-navigation, p-information and p-wiki could be moved down to make space. Edits would be made to MediaWiki:monobook.css, though you could test them in User:WhiteWizard/monobook.css first, if you have custom user CSS enabled. Or, since you control the server, you could just use this modification to the code. GreenKai 17:49, 1 April 2007 (PDT)
Well, that hack will make things a bit nicer, considering how important searches are on a Wiki. I never understood why it was so far down the side. There is still so much I need to learn about this beast I have. O.O Sometime when I'm bored and not trying to fill out the site I'll probably write a custom theme.
Anything else you'd like to see in the box with Recent changes? --WhiteWizard 19:06, 1 April 2007 (PDT)
