  1. Many forums come to mind, have used several different over the years, but as I brows MW central pages I lack a decent Traditional Board setup. Like this. I aim for that on a site I am building, but also looking for examples. Login integration is one thing, layout integration another. Have anyone done this and do you care to post a few links on how you did it? I mean, sure I could use an iFrame, but how well would that work?
  2. Hokay, so only way to change layout into something hot is code. Project cancelled. Maybe.. need to find more examples of those layouts to work with if relevant
  3. Intimidating? Hell yeah... Afraid to use? Not under these conditions, no, setting up something from scratch, on a working prod site, doubting it more. I actually found something that may be causing issues. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Installatron It does not put 100% of MW files where they should be, causing some difference's in environment. It does have a few advantages, like automated backups to external repositories, but I should have suspected this from the start. So I started from scratch - again - Editing composer.local.json The line to add may be right, but the resulting content should be { "require": { "mediawiki/chameleon-skin": "~2.0" }, "extra": { "merge-plugin": { "include": [ "extensions/example/composer.json" ] } } } One tends to attach additional lines going downwards, this is actually the opposite, you insert the lines before. I don't really know how important this is, but the result would have been this, following the instructions. { "extra": { "merge-plugin": { "include": [ "extensions/example/composer.json" ] } } } "require": { "mediawiki/chameleon-skin": "~2.0" } It is only when looking at advanced instructions over at https://github.com/cmln/chameleon/blob/master/docs/installation-linux.md that you see how the file should look like, the top example is right...Nesting is correct and the code is cleaner. Composer.phar Following this: https://getcomposer.org/download/ [pdswikisit@ns2 public_html]$ php -r "copy('https://getcomposer.org/installer', 'composer-setup.php');" [pdswikisit@ns2 public_html]$ php -r "if (hash_file('sha384', 'composer-setup.php') === 'a5c698ffe4b8e849a443b120cd5ba38043260d5c4023dbf93e1558871f1f07f58274fc6f4c93bcfd858c6bd0775cd8d1') { echo 'Installer verified'; } else { echo 'Installer corrupt'; unlink('composer-setup.php'); } echo PHP_EOL;" Installer verified [pdswikisit@ns2 public_html]$ php composer-setup.php All settings correct for using Composer Downloading... Composer (version 1.9.0) successfully installed to: /home/pdswikisit/domains/pointdefensesystems.net/public_html/composer.phar Use it: php composer.phar [pdswikisit@ns2 public_html]$ php -r "unlink('composer-setup.php');" [pdswikisit@ns2 public_html]$ resulted in a composer.phar file in my web root. This time I actually run ALL of those scripts. Not just the get composer part but lines 2-3-4 as well. After that I ran the following, please not the errors, building up for the proper syntax in my environment (CloudLinux) [pdswikisit@ns2 public_html]$ composer update "mediawiki/chameleon-skin" -bash: composer: command not found [pdswikisit@ns2 public_html]$ php composer update "mediawiki/chameleon-skin" Could not open input file: composer [pdswikisit@ns2 public_html]$ php composer.phar update "mediawiki/chameleon-skin" > ComposerHookHandler::onPreUpdate Loading composer repositories with package information Updating dependencies (including require-dev) Package operations: 61 installs, 0 updates, 0 removals -

No replacement was suggested. Writing lock file Generating optimized autoload files > ComposerVendorHtaccessCreator::onEvent [pdswikisit@ns2 public_html]$ That was WAY more than expected..... and is not advertised in any way by the Chameleon guys... which would have been a good headsup. I only expected this line - Installing mediawiki/chameleon-skin (2.1.0): Downloading (100%) Looking back at the file structure is seems ok from root dir, but /vendor/ has a lot more in it. And the Chameleon actually gets in to the default MW skin folder, which did not happen before. Chameleon with a lowercase c, as in chameleon. LocalSettings.php Now, lets see about the editing of LocalSettings.php. Tension is building up. Editing these lines from ## Default skin: you can change the default skin. Use the internal symbolic ## names, ie 'vector', 'monobook': $wgDefaultSkin = "timeless"; # Enabled skins. # The following skins were automatically enabled: wfLoadSkin( 'MonoBook' ); wfLoadSkin( 'Timeless' ); wfLoadSkin( 'Vector' ); to ## Default skin: you can change the default skin. Use the internal symbolic ## names, ie 'vector', 'monobook': $wgDefaultSkin = "timeless"; # Enabled skins. # The following skins were automatically enabled: wfLoadSkin( 'MonoBook' ); wfLoadSkin( 'Timeless' ); wfLoadSkin( 'Vector' ); wfLoadSkin( 'chameleon' ); checking the spelling and characters of chameleon to correspond to the name of the created directory. SITE DID NOT BREAK! Checking "Special:Version" - Yeah, its there all right! Changing Preferences to Chameleon, preview looks good (with a capital "C", no typo there....) More reading: https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:Skin_configuration and even more reading: https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Help:Preferences Case closed. Next. (Find out how you select/alter more stuff for Chameleon)
  4. I am rather new to actually handling a server setup for MW . Use MW in the past a lot, but never as host or administrator. So now I am building one, with all the new things that entails. Snag. After browsing themes that may be usable for an initial layout I came across Chameleon, but the installation instructions are not easy to follow since they do not give the desired result, whenevr i try to "activate" the theme via load in LocalSettings the site crashes. Allow me to link my conversation with one of the Chameleon maintainers at Github. https://github.com/cmln/chameleon/issues/102 Somethings feels wrong and I have yet to test the very last option given, but has any of you guys done this successfully?
