Check usage and version matrix;

Eveskin is a skin. It is being actively developed by community members from the game EVE Online in order to replicate the appearance of the old EVElopedia wiki discontinued by CCP Games. Eveskin is based off the MonoBook skin architecture and uses many of the same assets.


The skin in its current state can be downloaded from github. You need to install it separately.

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

To users running MediaWiki 1.24 or earlier:

The instructions above describe the new way of installing skins using wfLoadSkin(), since MediaWiki 1.25. If you need to install this skin in earlier versions, instead of wfLoadSkin( 'Eveskin' );, you need to use:

require_once "$IP/skins/Eveskin/Eveskin.php";

(To run an skin on an earlier release, you may need to download the version of it tagged for that release from Special:SkinDistributor.)
