Tech:Different skin for Shared

From Wikitravel Shared
Jump to: navigation, search

Increasing numbers of confused people are trying to post guide-type stuff into Wikitravel Shared. We need a skin (or at least a logo) that is different to serve as a clue-by-four that /shared != /en. Jpatokal 05:27, 29 September 2006 (EDT)

Is there any reason why we only have one skin available across all versions of Wikitravel. To keep people from confusing shared and en is a major reason to enable different skins. Another is that contributors from Wikipedia may well be used to a different skin. Contributors on :ru are asking about this now, and I have no answer to give them. Why does this sort of request go unanswered? Is this a difficult request to fulfill? --Peter Talk 14:37, 11 October 2008 (EDT)
Something as simple as a pink-hued background or something would be nice – cacahuate talk 15:48, 11 October 2008 (EDT)
Though I'm not an expert, it doesn't seem to me to be a difficult request. This will probably work by putting Image:Headbg-pink.jpg to "files.wikitravel.org/mw/skins/monobook/" directory and rewriting "main.css". I've made a pink version below for example. Maybe, some tweaks of background-color are needed to match the background image. -- Tatata 00:27, 12 October 2008 (EDT)
Shared has been pink for the past week. How's it look? Thank you for the image+style, guys! Khoerling 13:17, 21 October 2008 (EDT)
Thank you Khoerling. Pink is fine for me. -- Tatata 10:02, 22 October 2008 (EDT)
Yes, thanks for getting that sorted. Can't say Pink is my favorite color, but it's striking, and accomplishes our long standing goal of making it obvious when you're on shared vs a language version. Thanks! – cacahuate talk 17:00, 22 October 2008 (EDT)
