How to change my header formats?


Recommended Posts

I hope this is the right question.

I first set up MediaWiki on my local server (Ubuntu in an Intel NUC) and have created hundreds of pages as my notebook.  I want to share some pages with others, so I installed MediaWiki on my personal website on GoDaddy.

My question is, in my original MediaWiki I did something to put the [edit] on the right side of the page, and not next to the header.  I forgot how I did this....

Current appearance:


How I want it:


Any ideas would be appreciated.

Never mind. I found my problem.  But for others who may stumble here...

From the latest release notes:


A new "Interface administrators" group was added, which has the ability to edit sitewide CSS/JS and the CSS/JS of other users. By default, no other group (not even "Administrators") has this capability anymore.<br>

To add this group to a user, including the administrator, go to 
  Special Pages
  User Rights
Enter the user name, then Load Groups.
Now select "interface administrator" and click on "Save user groups"

In your browser, open MediaWiki:Common.css

;Here is my Common.css file:

/* CSS placed here will be applied to all skins */
/* color was a dark green: #5a7425 */
/* #004377 is a dark blue */

body { color: #004377; font-size: 20px; font-family: "times new roman"; }

/* Reduce the line height slightly. Was 1.6 */
  line-height: 1.2;

/* Move the [edit] links to the right column */
.mw-editsection {
  position: absolute;
  right: 0px;
