Description dasmart1 2009-10-23 02:59:19 UTC
When I finally got myself a Wikipedia Account and started using the beta Wikipedia, I switched back to the default Monobook theme, as opposed to the Vector theme used by default in the beta WP (I have a CSS modification that changes some the color scheme of Monobook). However, before applying my CSS modification, I noticed that the top of the page still said "Try Beta" although beta mode was on (extendable edit box toolbar, etc were still active.) 
To reproduce the problem,:

1. Sign into Wikipedia.
2. Enter the beta Wikipedia.
3. Switch the theme to Monobook through Preferences>Appearance.
4. Save Changes.

Wikipedia should still say "leave beta" & "beta feedback".

This wasn't caused by my CSS modification, as the problem existed before I applied the modification.

This is expected behavior. The "Try Beta" link will show up if you're not using all Beta features.
Comment 2 dasmart1 2009-10-24 00:49:02 UTC
But I thought Vector wasn't a beta feature. Was I mistaken?

It is; enabling beta changes your skin to Vector.
