Vector 2022 is the second evolution of the MediaWiki Vector skin and is in development as part of the Desktop improvements project and in MediaWiki 1.38 . It is the default skin for various Wikimedia projects.

InstallationEdit

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

Optional dependenciesEdit

Vector 2022 makes use of the following extensions, though none are hard requirements:

Note about 1.38 releaseEdit

The 1.38 release marked official 3rd party support for the skin however between 1.36 and 1.38 the skin has been available at 3rd parties own risk.

If a site has been using new Vector between 1.36 to 1.38, they will hit challenges when upgrading to the 1.38 release. This is unavoidable and one of the reasons why we've been discouraging the use of the new skin prior to 1.38.

If you have been using Vector 2022 as the default skin, they will need to update wgDefaultSkin in LocalSettings.php after upgrading:

$wgDefaultSkin = 'vector-2022';

If the site allowed users to opt into the new experience, these users will be served legacy Vector, and would need to revisit Special:Preferences to update their skin preference to Vector 2022.

For large wikis, where a change in skin may be disruptive to logged in users, you may want to consider writing a maintenance script to upgrade existing database preferences. See T299104 and Extension:WikimediaMaintenance for more details.

Configuration parametersEdit

Note Vector has several unstable feature flags that may disappear at any time. Most of these feature flags relate to incomplete features. We do not recommend changing any feature flag from its default value unless listed here.

wgVectorMaxWidthOptionsEdit

Can be used to configure whether the max-width applies. Relatively stable at this point.

VectorLanguageInMainPageHeaderEdit

Controls whether the language button shows on the main page in the header.
