Defining “Bart v M” as default skin for all users

The “Bart v M” mediawiki skin is a very beautyful skin. To define this skin as your default skin you needs to do a little hacks.

First log as Admin user, then Edit the CSS page:
http://www.yoursite.com/wiki/index.php/MediaWiki:Common.css

Adding this context of http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Bart_v_M/myskin.css to Common.css

Edit the JavaScript page:
http://www.yoursite.com/wiki/index.php/MediaWiki:Common.js

Adding the context of http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Bart_v_M/myskin.js to Common.js

Edit your /etc/mediawiki/LocalSettings.php and change the default skin to myskin:

$wgDefaultSkin = ‘myskin’;
