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 | edit source]

  • Download and extract the skin in a directory called "Nostalgia" in your skins/ folder.
  • Add the following code to your LocalSettings.php (at the bottom)
require_once "$IP/skins/Nostalgia/Nostalgia.php";
  • YesYDone – Navigate to Special:Version on your wiki to verify that the skin is successfully installed.
