About this board (talkcontribs)

Hi there! Great skin! I just have a question: all the text in the wiki is in bold, any idea why? Something in one of the css?

Should not happen by default: See the demo wiki which does not show the behaviour. Did you add something locally to MediaWiki:Common.css that could cause the issue? (talkcontribs)

I have made some modifications but not that kind I think... See

It appears you have found the spot. I do not see any bold text except for the headings.

I upgraded a 1.26 wiki to the latest stable release. And I run into a few issues.

One seems to be fixed in current development branch (no icon for "edit"), but the main issue I run into is that there is no toolbar for the editor at all. What am I missing here? Thanks!

Mark as solved. Due do the major version pump, I hadn't taken precaution to enable the new editor. Had nothing to do with the skin. Looking forward to the new version with all the current fixes....

Unfortunately Foreground is currently incompatible with MW 1.32 and later. See the docu as well as the two threads below this one.

Content not displaying on 1.32-alpha.

On my sandbox MediaWiki site, foreground skin stopped displaying content after an MW update to 1.32-alpha version.

Foreground no longer works in MW1.32...

...due to MW's removal of the wfRunHooks() function.

Summary by Balerion300

After checking out Foreground's git a bit more, and the mailing list, I noticed that there seems to be some Add This-related code that was tweaked for the skin. We happened to be injecting our own AddThis code via a hook. Removing this seems to have fixed the issue.

Digging further into it, and comparing to another site that has Foreground available on 1.30, there just seems something weird on our site. The problem seems to be that the footer is being placed within the content div rather than after it. If anyone knows what would cause that behavior, let me know! (talkcontribs)

Hi, how can I change the font and size of the content? I tried to add something to MediaWiki:Common.css following these instructions Topic:Rlh02nwq7plg9i93 but it didn't work. Also, is it normal that I can't find MediaWiki:Foreground.css? Thank you!

i'm not seeing my logo on upper-left, that's visible with other skins.

How to fix?

Is it possible to keep the searchfield in the header, even on small screens? In the basic settings the searchfield is placed in the menu, which can be reached through the hamburger icon. I think it would be more useful for me, if it is placed between sitelogo and hamburger-icon. Is there any way to do this?

Kghbln (talkcontribs)

I do not think so but it is probably worth trying to ask via the mailing list.

When will release the next version stable.


Kghbln (talkcontribs)

I am using 2.1.0-alpha in production on two wiki for half a year now without issues relating to stability. Indeed the official release could be done. I always wanted to propose some CSS changes. Need to do this sooner than later.

Yes, it is overdue. Have some issues to address and I need to create a RFC on dropping IE 8 support completely.
