Vector is a skin for MediaWiki which became default in 2010.

In recent years the skin underwent a number of technical changes, e.g. the switch to Mustache to support the construction of Skin:Vector/2022 as part of the work done by the Läsning/Webb/Stationära förbättringar initiative.


  • Om du använder Vagrant , installerar du med vagrant roles enable vector -p

Manuell installering

  • Ladda ner och placera filen/filerna i en katalog som heter Vector i din skins/-mapp.
  • Lägg till följande kod längst ner i dina LocalSettings.php:
wfLoadSkin( 'Vector' );
  • Yes Klart - Ta dig till Special:Version på din wiki för att bekräfta att tillägget har installerats ordentligt.

För användare som kör MediaWiki 1.24 eller äldre:

Instruktionerna ovan beskriver det nya sättet att installera tillägget med wfLoadSkin(), sen MediaWiki 1.25. Behöver du installera tillägget på en äldre version, så behöver du, istället för wfLoadSkin( 'Vector' );, använda:

require_once "$IP/skins/Vector/Vector.php";

(För att köra ett utseende på en enklare utgåva behöver du kanske laddar ner versionen den taggats med för den utgåvan från Special:SkinDistributor.)

Setting the default skin to Vector

A default skin should be set for new users of a wiki by setting the variable $wgDefaultSkin in LocalSettings.php to the lowercase skin name specified in the skin file:

$wgDefaultSkin = 'vector';
// uncomment the following line to restore "classic" Vector appearance.
// $wgVectorDefaultSkinVersion = '1';

Configuration options


Watch and unwatch as an icon rather than a link.

  • Supported Values:
    • trueuse an icon watch/unwatch button
    • falseuse watch/unwatch text link
$wgVectorUseIconWatch = true;

wgVectorResponsive (< 1.36)


Experimental setting to make Vector a responsive skin that adapts to mobile phones. Not actively being tested or used in production (yet) but relatively stable and false by default.

  • Supported Values:
    • trueUse responsiveness to improve usability in narrow viewports
    • falseNo responsiveness

Note as of 1.36 this experimental feature flag no longer works in the default Vector skin. Those looking for a responsive Vector skin can use #New Vector skin in 1.36+ at their own risk.

wgVectorPrintLogo (< 1.36, removed in 1.36)


Logo used in print styles. Keys are 'url', 'width', 'height' (in pixels). Note that this solution only works correctly if the image pointed to by 'url' is an SVG that does not specify width and height attributes, or its width and height match the corresponding variables below. Alternatively, a PNG or other type of image can be used, but its dimensions also need to match the corresponding variable below. That in turn may result in blurry images, though.

In 1.36, please use Manual:$wgLogos

$wgVectorPrintLogo = [
	'url' => '',
	'width' => 174,
	'height' => 27


Basic features of the Vector skin
  • Reduced clutter, primarily by reducing the number of lines on screen
  • More prominent placement of the search portal
  • Visual separation of the content-action and namespace links, the former of which being divided into view tabs and action menu items
  • Automatic increase/decrease of margins throughout the user interface based on browser size
  • Use of a star icon for watch and unwatch actions
Added features of the Vector extension (some of these features have later been merged into the Vector skin or into the MediaWiki Core or have been removed)
  • Simplified search portal, including suggestions
  • Collapsible navigation portals
  • Alert when leaving an edit page without saving
  • Automatic hiding of tabs that do not fit on screen
Experimental Vector extension features
  • Simplified footer content
  • Search box expands on focus
  • Section edit links are moved to be directly next to heading instead of on the right, and use an icon
CollapsibleNav support via CollapsibleVector extension


Collapsible navigation

The collapsible navigation portals are now provided by the CollapsibleVector extension which will have to be installed additionally.

Smartphone and tablet design

Vector will work on many mobile devices, but it is not fully optimized for mobile devices. This will be rectified in the new version of Vector that is currently in development: #New_Vector_skin_in_1.36+_2.

History of the skin

Vector became default skin in 2010 (MediaWiki 1.17 , git #2833b07a), succeeding MonoBook. It had been created in 2009 as part of the work done by the Wikipedia Usability Initiative . In 2021, as part of the MediaWiki 1.36 release it will see an update as part of the work done by the Reading/Web/Desktop Improvements initiative.

Vector provides a number of usability improvements over its predecessor MonoBook. It was the first skin to separate the flat level content_actions into the categorized content_navigation.

At the beginning the basic functionality was included in the core skin, while some of Vector's special features were handled by a separate extension (Extension:Vector ). The extension has since been merged into the skin itself.

Dark mode customizations

Many solutions relying on MediaWiki:Common.css exist to support a dark version of the skin, including Skin:Vector/Wikipedia-userstyle-dark-minimum. An alternative skin to Vector exists that allows you to install as a separate skin at Skin:DarkVector.

Note all of these are supported by third parties, not the Wikimedia Foundation.
