Look and Feel[edit]

No DF tie-ins[edit]

Possible more DF related? A DF worldgen sreenie perhaps? More DF-y colours, such as red (especially red), green, black, grey etc? unsigned comment by Lord Nincompoop

The point is a useful and non-intrusive interface, not a df-wiki themed interface. --Briess 05:55, 26 April 2010 (UTC)

Plz keep old[edit]

The normal wiki skin is going to stay for those who prefer it, right? --Untelligent 22:00, 28 April 2010 (UTC)

Yeah, it won't be going away (and I'm planning on making a monobook-esque theme for magmawiki as wel, for those of you who prefer it's style), though it may no longer be the default. Emi [T] 03:39, 29 April 2010 (UTC)
Please do, I like monobook. But feel free to set another default if you think it works better. But I'd like monobook just because I"m used to it. Mason (T-C) 21:38, 12 May 2010 (UTC)

No Main Page Link[edit]

The magmawiki skin lacks a link to the Main Page. This is a deal breaker for me -- back to $random_skin for me. --Einstein9073 05:59, 9 June 2010 (UTC)

Not Working Right[edit]

WTB "Last Changed" plz[edit]

Could we get the "last changed" back on the bottom somewhere? Thanks. Mason (T-C) 13:30, 25 April 2010 (UTC)

We thought it probably wasn't that useful to most people (and keeping it makes our skin alterations drastically harder to keep nice -- this won't be a problem in actual magmawiki though). However, you can re-enable it if you want, on a per-account basis. Just add the following to your magmawiki.css (User:YourName/magmawiki.css).
#lastmod{display: block !important;}

It's been specifically requested by a few people, that's why I asked. If it'll be there in a similar way on magmawiki then I have no problem. Mason (T-C) 13:17, 29 April 2010 (UTC)

Where's the navigation/search/toolbox menu?[edit]

It's missing for me. On default Monobook, it's happily there, on the left side, but on MagmaWiki there's no Navigation, Search and Toolbox. Articles are stretched in width, taking place of them. On unrelated side: the skin looks nice! --Haspen 09:55, 6 May 2010 (UTC)

It's in the top-right. Señor Pwnage 03:04, 11 May 2010 (UTC)
Ah yes, Search is indeed there. But what with the rest? The account and 'my' stuff is on that floating bar, yes, but there's still no Navigation/Toolbox --Haspen 13:48, 11 May 2010 (UTC)
I finally brought up Monobook and Magmawiki and compared them side by side, and here's what I found:
"Main Page", "Recent changes", and "Random page" have been moved from the Navigation box to the bottom of the page, with "Centralized discussion" and "Help" missing. "Upload file" and "Special pages" have been moved from the toolbox to the bottom also, with "What links here" and "Related changes" missing.
I'm really not sure why the chose to remove what they did. It says in the site announcements at the top of every page to go to "Centralized discussion", and "Help"... how are newbies supposed to know how to fix things without that? Also, I use "What links here" CONSTANTLY when I'm fixing pages, and I would feel crippled without it.
Someone should do something about this. Señor Pwnage 01:39, 12 May 2010 (UTC)
Hmm, there's something strange going on then... I don't have anything at the bottom of the page, except Category:something, and that's when I scroll the page down. --Haspen 09:54, 12 May 2010 (UTC)
What browser are you using? Try a different one and see if it works. There should be a bar with orange borders which has "main page", "recent changes", "random page", "special pages" and "upload file". Also it scrolls along with the window so it's always on top... hard to miss it. --Speed112 11:22, 12 May 2010 (UTC)
Oh! Thanks Speed, for enlightment. On default Monobook, that O-CBB (Orange-Colored Borders Bar :P) was having just two (irrevelant for me) things, so I AdBlocked it ('twas tricky to find the script line, really). Didn't knew that on MagmaWiki O-CBB have actually vital functions. Hmmm... dunno, I hate flowing bars. Too much resembling of advertisements, gotta decide what I like more... Oh well, problem solved anyway! Thanks a lot. --Haspen 16:09, 14 May 2010 (UTC)
