Forums: Index > The Wizengamot archive > Custom Monaco Skin

Wikia has rolled out a new skin...Monaco. It is designed to be alot like Monobook, which it is. It would be nice to have a custom wiki skin, such as the one at Wookiepedia, or the one I made at the Jimmy Fincher Wiki. We also need a new wiki_wide.png. It is white, and really stands out against the current skin.-Matoro183 (Talk) 21:22, 1 March 2008 (UTC)

Personally I know nothing about creating a custom skin (although I imagine it can't be too hard). I'm sure if anyone wanted to work on one we could look into it. And personally I use Monobook -- the others are all too distracting. -- DarkJedi613 (Talk) 21:49, 1 March 2008 (UTC)
Wikia has come out with many new features, such as widgets, that give you more control. Admins can block a user right on the spot using a block user widget. Oh, and I found out about the new skin through the Wikia-| mailing list. The Monaco skin was designed to be like monobook. It just came out on monday. You should check it out.-Matoro183 (Talk) 21:56, 1 March 2008 (UTC)
I've used it on Wookieepedia. Its OK (much much MUCH better than Quartz). Maybe I'll give it a try and see how I like it. The widgets are kinda neat -- I just find it difficult to navigate on the newer skins. -- DarkJedi613 (Talk) 22:05, 1 March 2008 (UTC)
I trialed it for a couple of days - it's nice, much better than Quartz. There is also the option of creating a customised sidebar for yourself as well, apparently. - Cavalier One(Wizarding Wireless Network) 22:21, 1 March 2008 (UTC)
I haven't done that personally, but i have heard of it...-Matoro183 (Talk - Jimmy Fincher talk) 22:39, 1 March 2008 (UTC)
I'm a little bored, so I guess I'll start on a new skin. It will be at User:Matoro183/monaco.css . Any ideas on the colors?-Matoro183 (Talk - Jimmy Fincher talk) 22:56, 1 March 2008 (UTC)
