About

MediaWiki skin compliant with layout and structure of www.blender.org. Preview can be seen at [1].

It is available for selection on user preferences. MonoBook skin should remain fully operational.

It would be great, if some mediawiki extensions were installed. Semantic MediaWiki and SemanticForms would be particulary useful.

Skin installation: Unpack the archive File:BlenderWiki skin.zip in skins directory in MediaWiki installation.

Issues

  • Contrast
    • remove explicit background colors in templates, use CSS
  • Page Width:
    • 640px is the suggested width of content. This is somewhat more narrow than standard
    • Preformatted text overflows on right; provide means to create wide preformatted boxes
    • thumb|center does not work well

Bugs

  • fix top alignment (CSS)
  • diff between article versions has wrong colors
  • improve top spacing
  • Fix broken wiki.blender.org content
    • Templates should work well with MonoBook and Blender (or any other, really) skin. Now this causes ugly colors and/or layout on some pages. It makes sense to make use of CSS classes.
  • Test on more browsers (MSIE7)

MSIE 6 bugs

  • when unhiding right side, the search box dissapears
