Displaying error messages[edit]

Currently, two user scripts reliably detect errors

as well as a third experimental method based on customizing a .css page. The three methods are

Method 1 – Automatic script installation
Go in the 'Gadgets' tab of your preferences and select the 'Install scripts without having to edit JavaScript files' option at the bottom of the 'Editing' section.
Click on the 'Install' button in at the top of either User:Svick/HarvErrors.js, or User:Trappist the monk/HarvErrors.js
Method 2 – Manual script installation
Go to Special:MyPage/common.js and add any of
importScript('User:Svick/HarvErrors.js'); // Backlink: [[User:Svick/HarvErrors.js]]
importScript('User:Trappist the monk/HarvErrors.js'); // Backlink: [[User:Trappist the monk/HarvErrors.js]]
in your skin page, like this. Alternatively, you can go to Special:MyPage/skin.js to make the script apply only to your current skin.
Method 3 – .css code for error messages emitted by the short-cite templates
Error messages are emitted by the various short-cite templates via Module:Footnotes and Module:Harvc. Because of technical limitations, the modules can emit false-positive error messages along with valid error messages. For this reason, all error messages are hidden by default. To show these hidden error messages, include the following text in your common.css page or your specific skin.css page:
.harv-error {display: inline !important;} /* display Module:Footnotes errors */
Error message display may be enabled in the future.
