DuskToDawn is a MediaWiki skin ported from the free and open source, GPL-licensed WordPress theme with the same name. It is described on the WordPress theme site as "a dark theme[sic] that melds old-style organic ornaments with modern design and typography".
Dusk to Dawn is, according to various different WordPress sources, the successor to the Dusk skin.

- Add the following code at the bottom of your LocalSettings.php:
