Wiki Monkey

Hi, regarding [1], if you're still interested it didn't load because version 5.0.2 is obsolete and not compatible with the current MediaWiki version. You could try to install the current 5.1.2 version:

Hi there. Thanks for the info. I copied the code and did not have enough time to try to figure out why the mw API failed. I should have notice the version had to be updated though.
Since we are here, I have two doubts regarding the code in the above diff, if you can help me: 1) Does loading both wikiEdDiff and Wiki Monkey allow me to use both, or Wiki Monkey replaces the first one as it was called last?; 2) How does update_check_wdays work?

1) Yes you can use both: mw.loader.load(script) simply loads the referenced script asynchronously each time it is invoked, it doesn't override previous calls.
2) update_check_wdays is documented in the upstream wiki: you don't really need to specify it, it's an Array of numbers to determine which days of the week (from 0=Sunday to 6=Saturday) Wiki Monkey should check (once per day) whether there are new versions available; by default it checks once every Saturday or if more than 7 days have passed since the last check, which should be more than enough in most cases.

It seems wikEd won't load via mw.loader.load for somereason so I had to use another way, but Wiki Monkey presented no other issue. Enabled. Thanks!
