The skin has some colours, probably. Implements a global navigation menu, same as Splash and WoOgLeShades, but also works fine without it.


  • Download and place the file(s) in a directory called HasSomeColours in your skins/ folder.
  • Add the following code at the bottom of your LocalSettings.php:
wfLoadSkin( 'HasSomeColours' );
  •   Done - Navigate to Special:Version on your wiki to verify that the skin is successfully installed.

Configuration: themesEdit

HasSomeColours implements configurable pseudothemes, used by setting skin configuration variables in LocalSettings.php for primary and secondary non-content colours. For example:

Grey/red (default)Edit

$wgHasSomeColoursColourOne = '#555';
$wgHasSomeColoursColourTwo = '#d77';

Blue/cyan (original)Edit

$wgHasSomeColoursColourOne = '#26c';
$wgHasSomeColoursColourTwo = '#7cf';
