MediaWiki JavaScript way to view the history of a page

+0
−0

I wish to view the revision-history-webpage of a webpage in MediaWiki without the conventional button to do so (I've disabled that button for aesthetic reasons).

Please disable the MediaWiki View History built-in button and try this keypress JavaScript to view the revision history of an article (credit to user:hkotsubo).

let domain = window.location.host;
let protocol = window.location.protocol;
let h1 = document.querySelector("h1");
window.addEventListener('keydown', function(event) {
    if (event.altKey && event.shiftKey && event.key === 'H') {
        window.location.href = `${protocol}//${domain}/index.php?title=${h1.innerText}&action=history`;
    }
});

Running this code in MediaWiki 1.36.1 in Hebrew doesn't work.
I get "אין פעולה כזו" (there's no such action).

Why would this happen and how to solve that problem?

The "title" query parameter value in your URL is probably not what MediaWiki expects (5 comments)

I couldn't access the history due to having

$wgActions['history'] = false; # Complete history lockup;

In the web application root's LocalSettings.php file.

After I have commented this command, I could access the history just fine.
