There should be a skin collection on the sites of mediawiki.org. -- Beyer 11:46, 8 September 2008 (UTC)

Default skin is really MonoBook or Vector?[edit | edit source]

Page says:

 The default skin packaged with every MediaWiki install is MonoBook, famous as the default on various WikiMedia projects.

But when I go to Wikipedia.org I always see the vector skin - logged or unlogged. Also the Mediawiki 1.17 I installed recently, vector was the default skin. Is above text outdated?

Yes, outdated. See the information on top of this page. Actual informations

Distinguishing between Level 3 and Level 4 headers[edit | edit source]

When looking at a Wikipedia page using the available skins, it's difficult to distinguish between Level 3 and Level 4 sections headers unless the headers are near each other. For example:

Level 3 header[edit | edit source]

This is a level 3 section.

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipisicing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua. Ut enim ad minim veniam, quis nostrud exercitation ullamco laboris nisi ut aliquip ex ea commodo consequat. Duis aute irure dolor in reprehenderit in voluptate velit esse cillum dolore eu fugiat nulla pariatur. Excepteur sint occaecat cupidatat non proident, sunt in culpa qui officia deserunt mollit anim id est laborum.

Level 4 header[edit | edit source]

This is a level 4 section.

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipisicing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua. Ut enim ad minim veniam, quis nostrud exercitation ullamco laboris nisi ut aliquip ex ea commodo consequat. Duis aute irure dolor in reprehenderit in voluptate velit esse cillum dolore eu fugiat nulla pariatur. Excepteur sint occaecat cupidatat non proident, sunt in culpa qui officia deserunt mollit anim id est laborum.

Level 3 header[edit | edit source]

This is a level 3 section.


This can be confusing, as it is sometimes unclear whether a given section is a subsection of the previous. It's been bugging me for a long time, but I couldn't figure out where to bring up this complaint.

I would like to propose that the default skin be changed so that Level 3 headers are more distinctive. Perhaps a slightly bigger font, or perhaps underlined? Or perhaps level 4 and below headings should not be bolded?

I'm not sure if this is a right place to bring up this topic, if anyone knows a better place, please point me in the right directions. Thanks. Lawrencekhoo (talk) 05:43, 23 January 2014 (UTC)
