Nimbus – A Free Premium Skin!

Nimbus in action at Fish Hooks wiki

Hi everybody,

You may remember we had a brief downtime last month, and we said to help make up for this we’d be releasing one of our upcoming premium skins for free.

The skin we’re releasing for you to enable on your wikis today is called Nimbus, which you may recognise as the skin that Halopedia uses. Our technical team have been working hard to fix up this open source skin to ensure it is easily usable on your wiki!

Some key features include:

  • Monaco-esque multi-level navigation menu, editable at [[MediaWiki:Nimbus-sidebar]], including a “Did You Know?” section editable at [[Template:Didyouknow]].
  • Supports 55 languages!
  • Footer under article content encouraging users to edit. Wikis with social tools
  • will also see a gallery features the avatars of recent contributors!

To view a wiki with Nimbus, go to [[Special:Preferences]] and click on the Appearances tab, where you’ll see it under the list of skins. To make it your wiki’s default skin, email saying:

Make Nimbus the default skin on

where wikiname is your wiki. If you also want social tools turned on, please add that to the message.

A full range of premium skins will hopefully be released later this year.

On behalf of the ShoutWiki team,
