Instructions

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_path = 'http://www.bluwiki.org';

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

$bluwiki_skin_path = 'http://www.foobar.org/wiki';

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