MediaWiki Skins by Castley

2006 September 23: Anand released a new FratMan skin that works well with MediaWiki v1.7. The skin incorporates many of the changes suggested in these comments. Thank you Anand.

Robert Castley, Mambo project director from 2002 to October 2004, dropped in to thank me for the MediaWiki skins I created and to offer a few enhancements of his own.

Thanks for sharing your enhancements Robert. More so, thanks for all you have contributed to the open source community. I’ll need to create 1,000 skins or more to repay the dept I and others owe to you.

  1. did anyone find a solution for the question below??? — “I don’t know If I am going to ask too much here but can you tell me what to modify in the script / skins so that all article functions (view / edit / discussion / edit / history) could be bring back at the top of the article / page (like the default skin in Mediawiki). I find it more usefull in terms of editing stuff.”


  2. Jason,

    I have a Fratman-Enhanced (Castley Version) ported to MediaWiki 1.7 with the fixes in your blog comments. The only outstanding browser issue after tests with BrowserCam are Safari 1.3, Explorer 5.0 and 5.5 for Win.

    I’d like to contribute it to this page. You can email me if you would like to add it.


  3. Excellent Anand. I welcome your contributions, will publicly credit and thank you, and will be happy to update my site with your modified changes. Thanks for offering to help and improve my work for the good of everyone.

    Email me a .zip or .rar file that includes your changes and I’ll update the site.

    Sincerely, Jason Pearce


  4. Great news Anand, fantastic for the new wiki release.

    Jason, I’d like to email with an issue or two, what is your email address? I can’t find it anywhere, although i’m assuming [email protected] will work!

    Thanks



  5. With MediaWiki 1.8.2 and Anand’s latest I cant seem to display HR stuff, no lines, it doesnt matter if I use HTML or —- wikitext.

    Cant seem to find the problem either. Same page viewed in monobook seems to show the line.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks. AM
