Vandal Warner adds some links to the "toolbox". These links only appear when you are editing a user talk page. You can add warnings on the talk page of users rapidly, by clicking on those links.
There are some messages which are available when you use Vandal Warner but you may want to add new ones or remove some items. For that, you have to add a few lines to your monobook.js file. First, go to Your monobook.js file. Then click edit, and add lines in this format:
WarnVandalCustomItems.push( Array('test', 1, 'Experimenting', 'Test edit') );
In the above example:
- 'test' is the name of the template that is used. Other examples are 'test2', 'testarticle', etc.
- the number 1 means the template uses a parameter. If you set it to 0, no parameter is passed.
- 'Experimenting' is used in the edit summary.
- 'Test edit' is the text that is shown in the toolbox to you.
Please pay attention that when you use a custom set of warning items, the original set is not shown.
Custom signature[change source]
By default, four tildes (~~~~) are used for the signature. However, some users prefer to use a customized signature. Vandal Warner allows using custom signatures. You only have to add a line like this to your monobook.js file:
WarnVandalSig = "YOUR CUSTOM SIGNATURE";
You should replace "YOUR CUSTOM SIGNATURE" with the wikicode that generates the custom signature. Pay attention that you cannot use ~~~~ there directly (because it will change to your signature as soon as you save your monobook.js); instead, you can do something like this:
WarnVandalSig = "[[User:Blah]] ~~" + "~~";
