Mask is a fantasy-style skin using a mask design made for a wiki styled after a magic book.

It has a slight problem in that it utterly lacks HiDPI support, and it's massive already. Not really sure what to do with it. Also doesn't really work with a lot of normal wiki article stuff.


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


The Mask skin has only one configuration parameter that can be defined in LocalSettings.php:

  • $wgMaskSkinHostLink — set to a URL to change bottom coin link target (defaults to Project:About page)

On-wiki configuration[edit]

Certain features of the skin are configurable on-wiki via system messages:

  • File:Mask_skin_coin.png — upload to replace top coin with another logo
  • MediaWiki:Mask-menu-left and MediaWiki:Mask-menu-right — defines the skin's top menus
