MonoBook is a skin. It was the previous default skin for Wikimedia Foundation websites since MediaWiki 1.3, as the replacement for the old Standard skin. It became the most popular and most widely supported skin in the MediaWiki ecosystem until it was finally superseded by the Vector skin as the default on May 13, 2010 (MediaWiki 1.17, git #2833b07a), as a result of the efforts of the Wikipedia Usability Initiative to improve Wikipedia user experiences and potentially draw in more contributor participation. It served as a common backup for Vector and is still present on many wikis using older versions of MediaWiki software.

MonoBook does not receive significant user experience or accessibility improvements any longer. Please use other skins like Vector instead.


This skin is included in the MediaWiki download tarball. You only need to install it separately if you installed MediaWiki using a different method.

  • Downloade und lege die Datei(en) in ein Verzeichnis namens MonoBook in deinem Ornder skins/ ab.
  • Ergänze folgenden Code am Ende deiner LocalSettings.php:
wfLoadSkin( 'MonoBook' );
  • YesY Erledigt - Navigiere zu Special:Version in deinem Wiki um zu prüfen, ob das Skin erfolgreich installiert ist.

Für Benutzer, die MediaWiki 1.24 oder früher nutzen:

Die obigen Anweisungen beschreiben die neue Art der Installation von Skins unter Verwendung von wfLoadSkin(), verfügbar mit MediaWiki 1.25. If you need to install this skin in earlier versions, instead of wfLoadSkin( 'MonoBook' );, you need to use:

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