Details[edit | edit source]

Specify the names of skins that should not be presented in the list of available skins. Use for preventing users from choosing one or more skins which you do not want to remove from the skins directory.

Example, in LocalSettings.php put:

# Remove old skins from skin choice of user preferences
$wgSkipSkins = array( 'cologneblue', 'modern', 'monobook' );

Above would remove all skin choices but Vector. Omit from above array any choices that you want to remain.

Changing user preferences when removing a skin[edit | edit source]

In versions up to 1.16 (at most), upon registration the name of the default skin as provided by $wgDefaultSkin is copied to the user preferences of the user. When you later make this skin inaccessible, use the maintenance script Manual:UserOptions.php to make sure that this skin is also no longer chosen by any user:

php userOptions.php skin --old "monobook" --new "vector"

This will change the skin for all registered users, who have selected Monobook, to Vector.
