Cavendish-MW[edit]

  • Based on: (not specified)
  • Author: Serrano Pereira
  • Compatible with MediaWiki version(s): 1.21
  • Last updated: (unknown)
  • Description: Cavendish-MW (previously Cavendish mod) is a MediaWiki skin that provides the mozilla.org look and feel. It's an enhanced version of the Cavendish MediaWiki skin. The original Cavendish MediaWiki skin has some flaws and is not compatible with the latest versions of MediaWiki. Cavendish-MW fixes these issues and has other improvements like a full width template and updated style sheets. The JavaScripts have been fixed as well which makes neat stuff like Collapsible Tables/NavFrames/MediaWikiSuggest/etc. work.

Wolfbane[edit]

  • Based on: (not specified)
  • Author: Stinkfly
  • Compatible with MediaWiki version(s): (unknown)
  • Last updated: (unknown)
  • 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 more mantained by original author (Stinkfly), so I made a derivated version. The screenshot is related at this modified version. Download Wolfbane modified version

  • Author: Chochem
  • Compatible with MediaWiki version(s): (unknown)

  • Description: A magazine-column-style skin with a clean and inviting look, equally inspired by the economist.com and last.fm designs. The simple, no-nonsense layout ensures greater focus and readability. Use of the Droid Sans font is recommended for best results. Feedback goes here.

ScreenRealEstate[edit]

[w:User:Tejas81/myskin.css Download version 1.0]
  • Based on: (not specified)
  • Author: TI
  • Compatible with MediaWiki version(s): (unknown)
  • 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 dropdown, some are inline. The search buttons are gone, only the box remains. A few ugly hacks, but dunno if I will get around to smoothing them.

Monaco (port)[edit]

  • Based on: (not specified)
  • Author: Inez Korczyński, Christian Williams, Piotr Molski, Daniel Friesen
  • Compatible with MediaWiki version(s): (unknown)
  • Last updated: (unknown)
  • Description: A port of the Monaco skin, which was developed and made popular by Wikia.

Foreground[edit]

  • Based on: (not specified)
  • Author: Garrick van Buren, Jamie Thingelstad
  • Compatible with MediaWiki version(s): 1.18+
  • Last updated: (unknown)
  • Description: Responsive, mobile-friendly skin built on top of Zurb Foundation that puts your content front and center.

BootStrapSkin[edit]

See Skin:BootStrapSkin for more information. Though BootStrapSkin is a Skin, it is what some would classify as multi functional, in that the custom Bootstrap css and several JavaScripts allow for Bootstrap styling within Mediawiki article content using nothing more than div, span and ul tags. Popular features include Carousel, Pop-ups and Pop-overs, Modals, drop down navigation and tables, to name a few. BootStrapSkin is also Font Awesome and GlyphIcon ready, with the ability to use custom fonts on the fly - current version includes the Lato font.

Update: We have now added several custom extensions for Bootstrapskin that offer improved visual functionality e.g. A gallery, slideshow, news ticker and social sharing.
