Nostalgia is a skin that resembles the interface of UseModWiki, the engine that powered Wikipedia in its first year (2001).

It was part of core MediaWiki until MediaWiki 1.21 , was removed in MediaWiki 1.22 (Gerrit #Ia6d73c) and is now available as a separate skin for posterity.

If you intend to use it with MediaWiki 1.22 or 1.23, use (respectively) the REL1_22 or REL1_23 branch, as git master is only compatible with master MediaWiki.

Installation[edit]

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

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