Shortdesc helper (SDH) is a gadget for adding, editing, and importing short descriptions.

Enabling

Select the gadget at the "Editing" section of Special:Preferences#mw-prefsection-gadgets (and save).

(if you already have the script installed, remove importScript('User:Galobtter/Shortdesc helper.js'); from Special:MyPage/common.js or Special:MyPage/skin.js)

Usage

When activated, the article's short description will be displayed on the page immediately under the line "From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia", and edits may be made by clicking the buttons to the right of the short description. (see image).

The gadget is compatible with the page assessments gadget.

Options

 
Settings as of version 3.4.3

Shortdesc helper may be configured using the settings window that can be accessed when editing or adding a short description by clicking the gear-wheel button on the right.

Installation on another wiki

Shortdesc helper will automatically detect if it is loaded on another wiki, and allow viewing and editing of Wikidata descriptions on those wikis.

For individual use

Add

mw.loader.getScript( 'https://en.wikipedia.org/w/load.php?modules=ext.gadget.libSettings' ).then( function() {
	mw.loader.load( 'https://en.wikipedia.org/w/load.php?modules=ext.gadget.Shortdesc-helper' );
})

to Special:MyPage/common.js on that wiki to use the script on another wiki.

As a gadget

To install Shortdesc helper on another wiki, create a file named "MediaWiki:Gadget-Shortdesc-helper.js" with the content (comments there note how to localize):

window.sdh = {};

/* These messages can be changed to localize Shortdesc helper for your wiki. 
** If that is not necessary, then this can be removed, and English-language messages will be used. */
window.sdh.messages = {
	/** Uncomment the following to change messages used in settings dialog */
	/**
	"libSettings-settings-title": "Settings",
	"libSettings-save-label": "Save settings",
	"libSettings-cancel-label": "Cancel",
	"libSettings-showDefaults-label": "Show defaults",

	"libSettings-save-success-message": "Settings for $1 successfully saved.",
	"libSettings-save-fail-message": "Could not save settings for $1.",

	/* Settings messages */
	'sdh-settingsDialog-title': 'Settings for Shortdesc helper',
	'sdh-header-general': 'General',
	'sdh-header-appearance': 'Appearance',

mw.loader.getScript( 'https://en.wikipedia.org/w/load.php?modules=ext.gadget.libSettings' ).then( function() {
	mw.loader.load( 'https://en.wikipedia.org/w/load.php?modules=ext.gadget.Shortdesc-helper' );
})

and create a css file named "MediaWiki:Gadget-Shortdesc-helper-pagestyles-vector.css" with the content of MediaWiki:Gadget-Shortdesc-helper-pagestyles-vector.css.

Then, add to MediaWiki:Gadgets-definition:
