The instructions above describe the new way of installing skins using wfLoadSkin(), since MediaWiki 1.25. If you need to install this skin in earlier versions, instead of wfLoadSkin( 'WoOgLeShades' );, you need to use:

require_once "$IP/skins/WoOgLeShades/WoOgLeShades.php";

(To run a skin on an earlier release, you may need to download the version of it tagged for that release from Special:SkinDistributor.)
