Forum: Discussion & help New skin


Several months ago, Wikia released a new site skin called Monaco. The new skin features tools which make it much easier for visitors to find content and edit it. You can read all about Monaco here. As you can read on that page, while you will still be able to select Monobook (this wiki's current default skin) as the skin you personally use to view the site (via Special:Preferences), we are no longer able to support Monobook as a default skin for anonymous visitors. So, we need to change the default skin to Monaco.

There are a number of pre-built themes for Monaco. Check out how the homepage looks in Sapphire, Jade, Slate, Smoke, Beach, and Brick, and let me know which one you like best. In addition to those pre-built themes, you can build your own custom themes as well. Check out the custom themes on the Shaiya Wiki and the Diablo Wiki. You can learn about customizing the theme, menus and other aspects of Monaco here.

Take a look at that information, and let me know which theme you think might work best. We need to change the skin by Friday, October 31st, so I am here to make that transition as easy as possible. Let me know if you have any questions, or if I can help in any way.

Thanks! --KyleH@fandom (talk) 18:40, 29 October 2008 (UTC)

Nice themes, in my opinion the jade theme matches well with the green wiki logo. --Diamant talk 15:16, 31 October 2008 (UTC)
Great. I went ahead and changed it to Jade. If you would prefer to continue browsing in Monobook, you can set that in Special:Preferences under the Skin tab. --KyleH@fandom (talk) 17:53, 31 October 2008 (UTC)
