  • It somehow works without too many fatals. Kinda. (gerrit:135497)
    • Added setup file.
    • Added i18n file; i18n definitely not yet ready!
    • Added functions for loading skin CSS & JS via ResourceLoader (JS not ready yet)
    • Renamed a bunch of i18n messages used by the skin so that they have the bluesky- prefix
    • Removed all instances of wfGetPad(), it's a CDN-related function specific to wikiHow
    • Fixed a bunch of E_STRICT junk
    • Ported over some necessary functions from other wikiHow extensions
    • getCategoryLinks() has a nasty debug line ($usebrowser = false;) and it needs some lovin'
    • Ported wikiHow's core hack to includes/User.php — the hasCookies function — over as function userHasCookies() and made use of it
    • s/->text()/->plain()/g for some Message objects to reduce reviewer anxiety
    • Toned down the excessive amount of hacks specific to the English version of wikiHow ($wgLanguageCode == 'en')
    • Removed more wikiHow-specific advertising code
    • Fixed the head element generation
    • Added support for the SkinAfterContent hook
    • Replaced 'sub_footer_new'/'sub_footer_new_anon' i18n messages with a more MediaWiki-esque, hard-coded footer
