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' );
  • Yes Done - Navigate to Special:Version on your wiki to verify that the skin is successfully installed.
