Poncho is a simple, clean, responsive and mobile-friendly skin for MediaWiki.


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


Poncho should work out of the box without any configuration. However, the following options may be useful:

  • $wgPonchoLogo - Set a logo specific for Poncho. Useful when the logo for other skins isn't fit for Poncho.
  • $wgPonchoSitename - Set a site name specific for Poncho. Set it to an empty string if your logo already includes the site name.
