Installation

Download and uncompress the latest package:

http://web.stanford.edu/design/templates/modern/MediaWiki/stanfordmod_mediawiki_skin.zip

Read any README files in the package to find out if there are any special steps that may not be mentioned here.

Copy the following items into the "skins" folder within your wiki application folder:

stanfordmodern1 (folder)
stanfordmodern1.php
stanfordmodern1.deps.php

In your "LocalSettings.php" file, search for the line starting with "$wgDefaultSkin" (around line 107). Edit and save that line as follows:

$wgDefaultSkin = 'stanfordmodern1';

Once you have completed these steps, new users logging into your wiki should see pages formatted in the Stanford Modern look-and-feel. Users and administrators who had logged in previously will need to update their account preferences in order to switch to the new skin.

Automatic Display of Sitename in Banner
Note that the Stanford Modern skin will automatically display your wiki's "Sitename" in the red Stanford banner at the top of every page. You can change or edit the "Sitename" in the "Localsettings.php" file, in the line starting with "$wgSitename" ... For this wiki, the line looks like this:

$wgSitename = "Web Services Wiki";
