It has been a while before this new skin is released. I had worked on a few bugs under Internet Explorer 6, such as color, position, and page size. also I tested this new skin under new MediaWiki 1.9.0, and it works very well. Here are some highlights of this new skin.
- Fixed size of the page, give MediaWiki more professional look
- Moved login menu to top for easy access
- Simplify the design, make it look clean
- Fix the login form which is invisible in IE
- Fix the create account form which is invisible in IE
- Fix the preferences positioning and floating in IE
- Enable edit section
- Page background is using customized pictures, which allows users to customize specific look, such as color and shadow
- Many other optimization
It works on Firefox 2.0, Internet Explorer 6.0, and Internet Explorer 7.0, and It had been tested under MediaWiki 1.8.2, it may work with other MediaWiki versions.
