ScratchWikiSkin2 is a responsive skin developed for the various Scratch Wikis.


  • Download and place the file(s) in a directory called ScratchWikiSkin2 in your skins/ folder.
  • Add the following code at the bottom of your LocalSettings.php:
wfLoadSkin( 'ScratchWikiSkin2' );
  •   Done - Navigate to Special:Version on your wiki to verify that the skin is successfully installed.


To use this skin, you will need to make modifications to the code base, potentially forking it, as permittable by the code's software license.

  • The Scratch logo is not customizable, and $wgLogos is not supported.
  • There is no way to disable the footer links, but their text is controlled by MediaWiki:Scratchwikiskin-footer-* (though not the URLs). You can also hide the footer by adding additional CSS to MediaWiki:Common.css.
