Hi, is there any hope of this working with the "Timeless"-Skin? 19:47, 1 June 2017 (UTC)

VisualEditor already works with the Timeless skin. Timeless has been updated to support it with If you upgrade MediaWiki to the (upcoming) 1.29 release and install matching versions of VisualEditor and Timeless, everything should work. Matma Rex (talk) 22:39, 1 June 2017 (UTC)

CSS Customization[edit]

Hi, I want to customize VisualEditor's CSS to work with my custom skin. Which files do I edit? Editing the CSS on my MediaWiki skin doesn't work, as VisualEditor overrides these styles with it's own CSS. (And I don't want to use !important for every style I change, for obvious reasons....)

Erudite skin[edit]


I don't manage to make it work with erudite skin.. Any Idea ?

Thanks for your help

VE only works in Vector and Monobook. --Elitre (WMF) (talk) 12:48, 7 February 2015 (UTC)
Thank you for your anwer.. too bad :( -- 12:20, 9 February 2015 (UTC)
User:Jdforrester (WMF), how difficult would it be for a MediaWiki dev to make VE compatible with Skin:Erudite? --Elitre (WMF) (talk) 12:25, 9 February 2015 (UTC)
@Elitre (WMF): I have no idea, sorry. If it's an entirely bespoke skin, "lots"; if it's a fork of Vector with some adjustments, it may be trivial. Jdforrester (WMF) (talk) 00:02, 10 February 2015 (UTC)
It is quite simple to implement VE in most of the available skins. For Erudite you should edit the file, adding the needed Ids to the template. The #main div should also be the #content div, so you should probably make #content wrap #main. There would also be some issues with the bodyContent id, which mostly comes after the headings and in erudite wraps the headings. --Wess (talk) 23:09, 21 March 2015 (UTC)
