  • Description: This is a skin made by Stinkfly at Wikia to hopefully be made as one of Wikia's skins. You can see some screenshots at CentralWikia:User:Stinkfly/Skin.

Wolfbane skin has a very nice style in my opinion. Unfortunately, this skin seems no longer maintained by original author (Stinkfly), so I made a revised version. The screenshot is related to this modified version. Download Wolfbane modified version

  • Last updated: (unknown)
  • Description: This skin is inspired in look and feel by, and built upon, Drone. However I did not like the toolboxes and navigational section hogging up the left of the screen: this makes the whole body of the article lose out on ScreenRealEstate.

I have retained only the navigational links and menus which I use. Some are drop down, some are inline. The search buttons are gone, only the box remains. A few ugly hacks, but don't know if I will get around to smoothing them.
