Minerva is a responsive screen and will adapt to mobile devices.

Minerva is the skin that serves mobile traffic for Wikimedia projects across the world. Compared to other skins such as Vector, it provides a much more simplistic user interface and is much more aggressive about optimizing for performance so that it can cater for mobile users.

It is optimized for use with MobileFrontend as the $wgDefaultMobileSkin but at the time of writing (current master and 1.35 release) this is a soft dependency and it will function without the extension installed. If using the 1.34 release or earlier it is a hard dependency.


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

require_once "$IP/skins/MinervaNeue/MinervaNeue.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.)

  • Note: Setting $wgDefaultSkin = 'minerva' will make Minerva your default skin even in Desktop view.

Ignore this line and instead use $wgDefaultMobileSkin = "minerva"; if you want only MobileFrontend to use the Minerva skin.

Make sure to call wfLoadSkin after wfLoadExtension.

MobileFrontend integration

With MobileFrontend integrated the Minerva experience will be enhanced to include various other features including:

  • Red link edit confirmation
  • Reference pop-up drawer
  • An enhanced search
  • Better integration on mobile with many popular Wikipedia-style templates.

To benefit from these:

Configuration

Configuration of menus

Certain URLs in the main menu can be tweaked. These include:

Certain menu items will be enabled automatically when the relevant extension is added.

Desktop vs mobile modes

MobileFrontend provides additional capabilities that are not available in MediaWiki core. You can compare desktop vs mobile mode.

When operating in mobile mode the following features are available:

  • Sections can be collapsed and expanded
  • The menu contains different options depending on the current mode, e.g. Special:Preferences is available on desktop
  • MediaWiki:Mobile.css (for mobile mode) or MediaWiki:Common.css (for desktop mode) will be loaded
  • Various pages are optimized for mobile e.g. Special:Watchlist (compare desktop vs mobile)

The desktop mode of the site is experimental. Bug reports and patches are appreciated.

When operating in desktop mode there are various issues that we are working towards fixing. Your patches and help are welcomed.

Advanced details

Overlays

This skin is equipped with several custom JavaScript-enabled overlay interfaces for editing, browsing legacy (non-flow) discussion boards and viewing page notice boxes, including multiple ones inside w:template:multiple issues.

If JavaScript is activated in the user's browser, the custom mobile-optimized editing interface overlay (URL fragment: #/editor/all, where all may be replaced with a section number starting at 0) will be shown. The edit summary is entered on a separate page within it.

If JavaScript is deactivated or unsupported, the normal action=edit URL will be opened as fallback.

Page notice boxes are opened in the URL fragment: #/issues/0, and notice boxes for individual sections starting at #/issues/1.

The overlay interface for discussion pages shows a list of sections and has a “Read as wiki page” button at the bottom.

The sidebar menu works with or without JavaScript. For those interested a non-JavaScript fallback page for the side bar menu (Special:MobileMenu) has been removed in 2020.

Dedicated pages

Instead of MediaWiki's native history (action=history) and difference viewers, this skin uses its dedicated special pages: Special:History and Special:MobileDiff respectively.

Special:History shows a minimalistic and coarse view of the page history, excluding some features such as the ability to select two non-consecutive revisions for comparison.

Special:MobileDiff shows page differences in a unified, rather than a split view, and does not include the page title in the URL.

While this skin also uses Special:Contributions to list iser contributions, its layout in this skin resembles the mobile Special:History by default.

Further distinctions

Search suggestions

Questions and answers

If you have a question not answered by the page – please feel free to use the talk page to raise them.

What do I get when I install MobileFrontend?

Minerva works without MobileFrontend but installing MobileFrontend will provide several enhancements – notably reference and red link pop-up drawers, and a mobile optimized search and custom editor. These optimizations will apply to the desktop and mobile version. Currently it is not possible to disable the mobile view link but patches to that effect will gladly be accepted!
