The WebPlatform skin is a MediaWiki skin based on the Vector skin and written originally for the now-discontinued project. The skin was popular from 2012 to 2015 and supported by WebPlatform stewards, which included Apple, Facebook, Google, HP, Intel, Microsoft, Mozilla, Nokia, and Opera. Together these organizations collaborated with W3C on improving open web standards and documenting said standards.

Because this skin was purpose-written for one wiki only, the interface parts still sadly contain hard-coded references to, in both the top navigation ("Docs", "Editing", etc. links at the top, next to the logo image) menu as well as the page footer, where the address is clearly visible alongside with a list of the aforementioned steward organizations'/companies' logos. Any and all patches to make the skin more generic are more than welcome!


  • Download and place the file(s) in a directory called WebPlatform in your skins/ folder.
  • Add the following code at the bottom of your LocalSettings.php:

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