mediawiki skins
hi there, i was wondering if it was possible to upload a skin for mediawiki. I had been using one on another hosting site and love it, and I'm hoping I can use it here.

Also, would it be at all possible for users to have access to files such as LocalSettings so we can tinker around a bit?

Ta muchly,
Darren

The free service is managed entirely by DreamHost on separate servers including file storage.

You can certainly change skins and settings but in order to do so you need to be a paying customer so that you can install MediaWiki to file storage set aside for your use.

What skin? There aren't that many out there for MediaWiki, so it'd probably be easy enough for us to just add some extras to the list.

Unfortunately, that isn't possible. We actually don't have a separate set of files for each user -- we just change certain settings depending on what domain you're looking at.

Hi there, the mediawiki skin is called 39dusk. I think it can be found here: http://it.despite-behavior.com/mediawiki/skins/?C=D;O=D

Also, I've been trying to change my mediawiki title in the change setting section of the manage apps panel, but haven't been able to do so... I put in a new name, but it doesn't stick. It's not a big issue, I'm sure I can deal with the wiki's original title Wink

thanks!

Sounds like a bug. Open up a support request and I'll take a look into it.
