Green Redirects makes redirects green.


You can install this script using JavaScript (JS) or Cascading Style Sheets (CSS). CSS will allow the script to run right at load whereas JS may have a delay before applying, this means the scripts style won't work instantly using JS but will using CSS.

Using JS

  • Add the following to your common.js or your skin.js (this method is deprecated and may be removed):
importStylesheet('User:BrandonXLF/GreenRedirects.css'); // [[User:BrandonXLF/GreenRedirects.css]]
  • Alternatively, use the following instead of the above:
mw.loader.load('/w/index.php?title=User:BrandonXLF/GreenRedirects.css&action=raw&ctype=text/css', 'text/css'); // [[User:BrandonXLF/GreenRedirects.css]]
  • To install on other wikis (for instance, globally in your global.js on the Meta-Wiki), use the following code:
mw.loader.load('', 'text/css');
  • After installing reload the page and clear your cache

Using CSS

@import url(;
  • After installing reload the page and clear your cache==Test==
