In 2021, as part of the MediaWiki 1.36-1.38 releases it will see incremental updates as part of the work done by the Reading/Web/Desktop Improvements initiative. At the end of the project, the 2010 version and 2021 versions will be split into two separate skins.
- If using Vagrant, install with
vagrant roles enable vector -p
wfLoadSkin( 'Vector' );
- Done - 喺你嘅wiki上打開Special:Version，確認佈景主題已經安裝成功。
wfLoadSkin( 'Vector' );，應該用：
A default skin should be set for new users of a wiki by setting the variable
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';
Watch and unwatch as an icon rather than a link.
- Supported Values:
true— use an icon watch/unwatch button
false— use watch/unwatch text link
$wgVectorUseIconWatch = true;
wgVectorResponsive (< 1.36)
- Supported Values:
Note as of 1.36 this experimental feature flag no longer works in the default Vector skin. Those looking for a responsive Vector skin can use #New Vector skin in 1.36+ at their own risk.
wgVectorPrintLogo (< 1.36, removed in 1.36)
'height' (in pixels).
Note that this solution only works correctly if the image pointed to by
'url' is an SVG that does not specify width and height attributes, or its width and height match the corresponding variables below.
Alternatively, a PNG or other type of image can be used, but its dimensions also need to match the corresponding variable below.
That in turn may result in blurry images, though.
In 1.36, please use Manual:$wgLogos
$wgVectorPrintLogo = [ 'url' => 'https://en.wikipedia.org/static/images/mobile/copyright/wikipedia-wordmark-en.svg', 'width' => 174, 'height' => 27 ];
- 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
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
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.
- Skin:MonoBook – MediaWiki's previous default skin
- Skin:DarkVector – Dark theme of the same skin
- Skin:Vector/VectorBook.css – CSS code to get the book background image from Skin:MonoBook in this skin.
- Skin:Vector/monobook-replica.css – An experiment to make Vector appear as similar to MonoBook as possible using CSS code applied on top of it.
- Skin:Vector/Customize - How to Customize appearance and add some custom HTML code in different places.
New Vector skin in 1.36+
In MediaWiki 1.36 a new variant of Vector was added as part of Reading/Web/Desktop Improvements. While available to use, this is not actively supported for 3rd parties at the time of writing and used at your own risk. Official support for this skin should be added as part of the 1.38 release.
To preview the new skin, in 1.36-1.38 you can use the following configuration:
$wgVectorResponsive = true; $wgVectorDefaultSkinVersion = '2';
|This skin is being used on one or more Wikimedia projects. This probably means that the skin is stable and works well enough to be used by such high-traffic websites. Look for this skin's name in Wikimedia's CommonSettings.php and InitialiseSettings.php configuration files to see where it's installed. A full list of the skins installed on a particular wiki can be seen on the wiki's Special:Version page.|
