Dusk skin is one of the oldest — if not the oldest — WordPress themes to be ported over to MediaWiki.

A reskinned version of Dusk, currently available as the green theme for the Dusk skin, was used as the main skin on Angela Beesley's now-defunct personal wiki, WikiAngela.com. The theme functionality requires the Theme extension.

The HTML output of Dusk is very similar to that of MonoBook's, with only some very minor differences (i.e. div#header between div#globalWrapper and div#column-content, a#top being called a#contentTop, #siteSub being a(n) h3 instead of a div, no h2 element in #column-one, h5 used instead of h3 in some places and some additional changes in the footer rendering code).

In the WordPress world, Dusk was succeeded by Dusk to Dawn, written by Automattic.

The Dusk skin does not use any custom i18n messages.

Installation[edit]

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