WikiApiary has many examples of wikis that use this skin. Leucosticte (talk) 05:36, 1 May 2014 (UTC)

working on 1.24?[edit]

I have been using Monaco on my 1.19 install for a few years and am now looking to upgrade to 1.24 - I had no luck getting the skin to work on my test site. Is this skin working on the latest version of mediawiki ? --Stampstudy (talk) 23:15, 22 December 2014 (UTC)

Arcane21 version[edit]

It's better and has a lot of fixes to work properly, not just thrown onto MW. Lieutenant Aleksandr Reznov 04:47, 15 January 2015 (UTC)

Thank you, for some reason I did not see the version for Arcane. I have this now installed on my wiki and have the wiki updated to 1.24. The only issue I can see so far is the menu not working correctly under Internet Explorer. The second level links are not working on my site under countries - --Stampstudy (talk) 14:23, 26 January 2015 (UTC)
The formatting of your monaco-sidebar system message doesn't look correct, as it's trying to use external links. The format should be articletitle|text - I believe you can specify any anchor tags after the article title and they should work, though I've never tried it personally (like Foo#A|A). See here for a functional example. --QuasarEE (talk) 05:02, 2 February 2015 (UTC)

Maintained open fork[edit]

I mentioned this on IRC but I am maintaining an updated version of this skin's code base on github, for use on, and while the skin is in wide use, most users of it haven't open-sourced their work so far. When we updated to 1.22, this issue was bad enough (emailed multiple wikis' bureaucrats to ask for their code, only to receive no replies) to prompt me to learn php, jQuery, and the MediaWiki API just to take over maintenance of the code base for our personal use. I believe my fork could be generally useful to people who want to use the Monaco skin, and so I'd like to revamp this page to be less centered on the now very dated dantman fork, which doesn't work out of the tar.gz with anything > MediaWiki 1.18 and includes my own fork. Besides fixing various bugs and regression issues, I have also started development on a new sidebar widget system replacing the original Wikia php system with a frontend-driven, Extension:Gadgets-compatible JavaScript solution. I didn't want to add the info here without sufficient discussion and have it look like some type of conflict of interest, so this is my proposal. --QuasarEE (talk) 12:24, 15 August 2014 (UTC)

Update: Wanted to note that my current code base is compatible with MediaWiki up to v1.29 currently, and is probably trivially patchable for v1.30 (haven't tried yet as my site runs on LTS releases). --QuasarEE (talk) 05:26, 21 August 2018 (UTC)
