Interested in downloading BluWiki's skin for use on your own MediaWiki site?


Installing the BluWiki Skin

It's easy! Just unzip the skin in the "skins" directory of your MediaWiki installation. Once you have done this, you'll want to edit bluwiki_skin.php and replace this line:

$bluwiki_skin_url = 'http://www.bluwiki.com';

with the URL to your mediawiki installation (without the trailing slash):

$bluwiki_skin_url = 'http://www.foobar.com/wiki';

Your MediaWiki users should then see it as an available option in their preferences page.

To make it your default skin:

cd /path/to/mediawiki/
vi LocalSettings.php

Find this line:

$wgDefaultSkin = 'monobook';

Replace with:

$wgDefaultSkin = 'bluwiki_skin';
