Where is the source repository for the Firefox plug-in?

Is it free (libre) and open-source software?

Firefox addons are interpreted. The plug-in has the source in it. (an xpi is essentially a zip archive). Bawolff 02:24, 24 June 2008 (UTC)

The icon - Is it free (libre)? Can it be changed? Are there higher resolutions?

Presumably the icon is licensed under Attribution-Share Alike 3.0, as with all of the content here.

Can it be changed from the link html? Given the numerous choices in the image here, and my own preference for the "WIKI" link, and perhaps a difference of icon when already editing the topic, it'd be 'nice' :) -- Anonymous

The Firefox plug-in does not let you specify an icon via the link. Since the plug-in is free/open source, you can edit it and change the icon for your web browser. Each browser developer can use whatever icon they like, but part of the idea is that there be a standard icon (as with RSS feeds), so that users can get used to looking for it.

Where can we get higher resolution versions of the edit button image? --BrianKerr

Here's the highest resolution one i know of: --John Abbe 11:38, 28 June 2008 (UTC)


I'd like to contribute this svg source of a 'simpler/stylized' logo base (smaller sizes are rendered to png), ready for any semantic (editable/editing) improvement and cosmetic ajustment (gradients/reflections/gel/shadows) Lorenzo Pastrana

How do i get the UEB for my favorite web browser?

There's a problem with my browser and the UEB, what can I do?

See if it's been reported at Bugs, and leave a report if not.

Original author of the icon?

I've uploaded the image to Wikimedia Commons, and created a Wikipedia userbox about the extension. One question: who created the original draft of the image we use? StevenWalling 03:53, 23 July 2008 (UTC)

Bookmarklet Port?

Hi, i've ported the code over to bookmarklet form, which does nothing to really help users recognize that it is editable, but makes it easier to simply edit, as it works as a universal button for editing known Wikis.

javascript:(function(){var B=document.getElementsByTagName("LINK");for(var A=0;A<B.length;A++){if((B[A].type=="application/wiki"||B[A].type=="application/x-wiki")&&B[A].rel=="alternate"){return window.location=B[A].href}}alert("Sorry! This page can't be edited.")})();

As a side note, I've had this project of mine, somewhat similar, to create a layer that actually lets you edit arbitrary pages online by enabling full-page design-mode and saving edits onto a remote server, that can be queried any time for edits. http://wikify.antimatter15.com/intro
