Nostalgia is a skin that resembles the interface of UseModWiki, the engine that powered Wikipedia in its first year (2001).

It is currently used on the nostalgia wiki, showing the look and content of Wikipedia in late 2001. It was part of core MediaWiki until MediaWiki 1.21 , was removed in MediaWiki 1.22 (Gerrit #Ia6d73c) and is now available as a separate skin for posterity.

If you intend to use it with MediaWiki 1.22 or 1.23, use (respectively) the REL1_22 or REL1_23 branch, as git master is only compatible with master MediaWiki.

Installation[edit]

  • Download and place the file(s) in a directory called Nostalgia in your skins/ folder.
  • Add the following code at the bottom of your LocalSettings.php:
wfLoadSkin( 'Nostalgia' );
  • Yes Done - Navigate to Special:Version on your wiki to verify that the skin is successfully installed.

To users running MediaWiki 1.24 or earlier:

The instructions above describe the new way of installing skins using wfLoadSkin(), since MediaWiki 1.25. If you need to install this skin in earlier versions, instead of wfLoadSkin( 'Nostalgia' );, you need to use:

require_once "$IP/skins/Nostalgia/Nostalgia.php";

(To run a skin on an earlier release, you may need to download the version of it tagged for that release from Special:SkinDistributor.)
