Content parameters

This section describes parameters that govern infobox content. For help with templatemode and other control parameters, please see Control parameters.

Content parameters
Parameter Description
namename of the skin
localised name source text for localising name of the skin

Specify the same value as name.

It will be used later for localising the name.
statuscurrent release status

One of:

  • unstable - currently broken - do not use this skin in the latest MediaWiki version.
  • experimental - early stages of development, may change drastically
  • beta - stable but not fully tested
  • stable - stable - the skin works in the latest MediaWiki version without any fatal errors.
  • unmaintained - unmaintained - only use if the linked repository is archived or the maintainer has not responded to an enquiry about the maintained status. If using this status, please link to a patch or issue/bug report as a reference using an HTML comment. If the skin is broken use unstable instead.
  • unknown - default

If the status is anything other than the above, it will be ignored and the default value of 'Unknown' will be displayed in the template instead.

name of each hook used by the extension

Entering values in this field is a good way to get exposure for your extension and help other developers. Each documented hook will automatically add the extension to a category listing extensions that use that hook. This category is autolinked to each hook page so that programmers can easily find examples of extensions that use a particular hook.

For built-in hooks:

  • use the hook name alone.
Please see Manual:Hooks for values (but omit introductory '/').

For custom hooks defined by extensions:

  • use extensionName/hookName.
For a partial list of custom hooks, see Extension hook registry.

For multiple hooks, assign the first hook to hook1, the second to hook2 and so on.


name of each hook provided by the extension

You might also want to add the hooks to Extension hook registry.

Control parameters

Control parameters
Parameter Description
templatemodeControls auto-categorisation of host page.

Koubasanan nopo nga pinologos aiso. Gatang ponowoli nopo:

  • nocats - Katogorisasi kategorisasi. Use this value if you are adding this template to subpages of a skin or to how-to documentation of skins. For example, the usage image above sets templatemode=nocats because this isn't an actual skin page and we don't want to add this page to any categories on account of it.

If this is left blank, this template will add the host page to Category:All skins and to one or more additional categories, depending on the values assigned to the Content parameters.

Sub bolikan; iti okon ko kulit: ngaran liwang; toi nung antob do 'templatemode=nocats'

Noruhangan kategori

This template will automatically add the pages it is used on to the Category:All skins category.

MediaWiki is an open-source project and users are encouraged to make any MediaWiki skins under an Open Source Initiative (OSI) approved GPLv2 compatible license (including MIT, BSD, PD). For skins that have a compatible license, you can request commit access to the MediaWiki source repository for skins.

A developer sharing their code in the code repository should expect:

Feedback / Criticism / Code reviews
Review and comments by other developers on things like framework use, security, efficiency and usability.
Developer tweaking
Other developers modifying your submission to improve or clean-up your code to meet new framework classes and methods, coding conventions and translations.
Future versions by other developers
New branches of your code being created by other developers as new versions of MediaWiki are released.
Credit for your work being preserved in future versions
Similarly, you should credit the developers of any skins whose code you borrow from.

Any developer who is uncomfortable with any of these actions occurring should not host their code in the code repository. You are still encouraged to create a summary page for your skin on the wiki to let people know about the skin, and where to download it.
