Check usage and version matrix;

WPtouch is a responsive, simple, mobile-first MediaWiki skin ported from the free and open source, GPL-licensed WordPress theme with the same name.

The WPtouch skin requires that the user has JavaScript enabled.


The site-specific logo can be set by uploading a 32x32px image as [[File:WPtouch-logo-icon.png]]. If that file doesn't exist, the skin displays the favicon.png image from the $wgStylePath/WPtouch/resources/images/ directory.


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

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