Does any one know the code to add talk page links on Answers sites? I have recently created Fable Answers and need a bit of a hand with other things too. If you are any good with Answers customization, please contact me. Thanks, ☆The Solar Dragon (Talk)☆ 08:23, May 20, 2010 (UTC)

Well I just wrote this code which is based on this .
/*This code is Open Source, the way things should be. feel free to use it whatever why you see fit. If possible please give credit. If not, no big deal. -ShadowTale */
function onloadhookcustom() {

 if (window.addEventListener){window.addEventListener("load",onloadhookcustom,false);}
 else if (window.attachEvent) {window.attachEvent("onload",onloadhookcustom);}

 function EditButton(){
 var currentpage = location.href;
 if("Special")==-1)   //this test to see if the URL contains the word "Special"
    $('#request_wiki').after('<a>   </a><a class="wikia-button" accesskey="e" title="Discussion about this Answer. [T]" href="' + wgServer   + '/index.php?title=Talk:'+ encodeURIComponent (wgPageName) +'" id="ca-edit" rel="nofollow">Discussion </a>');

I haven't tested it yet so have a try by adding the code to the wiki's MediaWiki:Common.js. Manyman Talk 05:38, May 22, 2010 (UTC)

Didn't seem to work. Tried it but nothing happened. ☆The Solar Dragon (Talk)☆ 06:33, May 22, 2010 (UTC)
Changed the code. Try again! Manyman Talk 07:14, May 22, 2010 (UTC)
No. Still nothing. ☆The Solar Dragon (Talk)☆ 09:57, May 22, 2010 (UTC)

Here, use this:

/* Modified from ShadowTale's AnswersEditButton by Grunny, adds a link to the Talk page on Answers Wikis */
function onloadhookcustom() {
if ( window.addEventListener ) {
} else if ( window.attachEvent ) {
function TalkPageButton() {
	var currentpage = location.href;
	if("Special") == -1 ) {
		$('#request_wiki').after('<a>   </a><a class="wikia-button" accesskey="t" title="Discussion about this Answer. [t]" href="' + wgServer + '/index.php?title=Talk:'+ encodeURIComponent (wgPageName) +'" id="ca-talk" rel="nofollow">Talk page</a>');

Ah, that worked. Thanks. ☆The Solar Dragon (Talk)☆ 11:33, May 22, 2010 (UTC) Only problem is it doesn't do User pages but otherwise, it is fine. ☆The Solar Dragon (Talk)☆ 11:34, May 22, 2010 (UTC)
