 ==== Skins ==== ==== Skins ====
 +Mediawiki skins are way too complicated, I think I've given up on ever creating one.
 +
 +Looking for Mediawiki skins is annoying! MediaWiki's wiki has [[https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Category:All_skins|a section that collects some together]], but there's no gallery of screenshots.
 +
 +=== Notes ===
 +
 +With a bias towards finding a new skin for [[project:Game Making Tools]]'s wiki. Looking for something with a narrower reading area((default skins expand to fill width of the browser window, and are fiddlier than they should be to fix)), produces nice markup, and uses ''grid''.
 +
 +  * [[https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Skin:Timeless|Timeless]] - I like that the search input in prominent, responsive, already included with MediaWiki (have to activate), narrower content section, I have themed this in the past.\\ NB: [[https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Skin:Timeless-DarkCSS|Dark version]]
 +  * [[https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Skin:PureCss|PureCSS]] - I thought the name was appealing :) but it's actually some Yahoo framework. Still, the skin's code is easy to read, so might be a good starting point for developing a custom skin.
 +  * [[https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Skin:Nimbus|Nimbus]] - Similar to the default, but a bit nicer.
 +  * [[https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Skin:Nostalgia|Nostalgia]] - Like earlier wiki engines.
 +  * [[https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Skin:Pivot|Pivot]] - Could be a good base for themeing.
 +  * [[https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Skin:Foreground|Foreground]] - Another one that might be a good fit. Not so keen on not having sidebar/s.((This is the innocuous-looking line that's making this {{tagpage>external-edit-only}}))
 +
 +== Vetoed ==
 +
 +  * [[https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Skin:Tweeki|Tweeki]] - Bootstrap.
 +  * [[https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Skin:Medik|Medik]] - ``
 +  * [[https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Skin:Strapping|Strapping]] - ``
 +  * [[https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Skin:Material|Material]] - puke material puke design puke
