Description

Back in the project’s infancy, we used to have a custom MediaWiki skin. What happened to it? Where is it? Can we recover, update and reapply it?

[14:24:11] <DennisRoczek> I have never seen that, had to be before i was in the project. I have no clue how to look something like that up in the backups...
[14:24:42] <DennisRoczek> can I change the ticket 's assignment to you?
[14:25:16] <cloph> we don't have archival style backups...

and archive.org also doesn't have enough resources archived so we cannot rebuild it.

Sorry: no there is no possibility to get it back live.
closing this ticket therefor as REJECTED.

Feel free to try to rebuild it. I'm happy to bring it in as another additional skin. ;-)

for the reference: skin was lost somewhen in 2012, also nobody answered.

Yeah, I just need to find the time to integrate MediaWiki into our branding again. I might want to steal something from the Arch wiki repo — it’d be beneficial IMHO to get rid of {{TopMenu}} and have links across the page header… :)

Please do. If you need access to the testwiki, ping hostmaster@tdf

Translated TopMenus (or with special links) won't work. At least I do not have any clue how this should be solved by the skin / theme.

Change status and assignee as you want to volunteer. ;-)

For the case you need any extensions to make that work, simply ping me / hostmaster.
