Greyt (Flag of Great Britain (1707–1800).svg Grey + [grea]t) is a semi-responsive skin for MediaWiki which is currently in development. The skin only uses CSS, HTML and PHP, there is indeed no use of JavaScript! Version 1.0.0 Build 92 was officially released on 3rd February, 2016.


  • Download and place the file(s) in a directory called Greyt in your skins/ folder.
  • Add the following code at the bottom of your LocalSettings.php:
wfLoadSkin( 'Greyt' );
  • 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( 'Greyt' );, you need to use:

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

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