Due to a severe shortage of time, I am no longer able to be an active member of the Wikibooks project. Please see my page for more details about my absense. I will continue to monitor my talk page for correspondence and will try to reply quickly when possible.

About[edit]

Welcome to my Gadgets page. My gadgets are tools that I've created for helping to automate complex tasks, especially tasks related to creating a new book here on Wikibooks. Gadgets can be viewed and used on the Book Creator page. The links below will take you to the source code for these gadgets. Documentation is linked to from the Book Creator.

Installation Instructions

All stable scripts are now available as Gadgets. Manual install is not necessary. To install my most popular scripts, follow these instructions:

  1. Go to Special:Preferences
  2. Click the Gadgets tab
  3. Check the box next to "Whiteknight's Visual Book Designer"

This will automatically install several scripts, including my Visual Book Designer and Book Creator scripts. All scripts, once installed, can be used at the Book Creator page.

Status[edit]

  • All scripts are tested to work in FireFox 2 and FireFox 3.
  • Support for IE7 and IE6 is good but not robustly tested. Plus, I have to do some ugly hack work to make these browsers work the same as FireFox.
  • Opera, Safari and Chrome should work for most things, but are not regularly tested.
