This page is a showcase of scripts/styles that can be added to MediaWiki:Common.css or Special:myPage/common.css to modify the look and feel of existing skins. To document a skin that can be installed for MediaWiki please do not add to this page and instead add a page to the MediaWiki skin namespace.

None of these skins are maintained by the MediaWiki core team; if you find an error or wish to leave feedback, contact their respective authors.

You can see a gallery of skins that are known to be obsolete at obsolete skins.

Wolfbane[edit]

  • 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 Unfortunately, this skin seems no longer maintained by original author (Stinkfly), so I made a revised version.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

ScreenRealEstate[edit]

  • 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 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.

Drone[edit]

  • Based on: (not specified)
  • Author: Chochem
  • Compatible with MediaWiki version(s): (unknown)
  • Last updated: (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.

Released under the GPLv3.

  • Author: Natster101

  • Last updated: 2021-01-06
  • Description: This skin is a modification of the existing Minerva Neue theme. It provides a sleek, modern interface that removes the clutter found in the default Vector theme. Some of its highlights include removing the sidebar and introducing a stuck header bar with beautiful translucency, a collapsible menu with simple options, a compact search UI, and a soft, rounded interface with an automatic dark mode.
