New Skin: Truglass

We are happy to announce that we have a new skin you can now use on your ShoutWiki sites, Truglass.

Truglass has a stylish and elegant design. The sidebar is on the right hand side of the page, and coupled with the lack of logo space provides a sleek and simple design ideal for professional sites.

Truglass was developed by Elliott Franklin Cable for the now defunct EnterWiki, with fixes and updates made by Jack Phoenix for ShoutWiki. The skin’s source code will be made open source in the near future.

To use Truglass as the default skin on your site, contact supportshoutwiki.com. You can set Truglass as your personal skin through Special:Preferences or Special:GlobalPreferences.

New Feature: Global User Pages

We’re excited to announce a brand new ShoutWiki-exclusive feature, global user pages.

Global user pages are exactly what they sound like — user pages which appear across all ShoutWiki sites. This means you can easily maintain one user profile across all ShoutWiki wikis. Of course, you can overwrite your user page on certain sites, but until you, do your default profile will appear globally.

Using global user page is simple: create your user page on ShoutWiki Hub, then go to your global preferences, click the “Use global user page” checkbox and save the changes.

The code is very similar to our recently launched Shared Help Pages feature. Both features were written by Jack Phoenix, and both are based on the HelpPages extension by Kunal Mehta.
