Description Leia Yeung 2008-06-19 19:24:56 UTC
Perhaps a wiki's logo should be incorporated into the Modern Skin. I think that doing this personalizes the Modern Skin a little, and gives it more of a look similar to Monobook. By the way, it is a really nice skin!
Comment 1 Jon Harald Søby 2008-07-08 10:43:54 UTC
The way I do it in my peronsal modern.css is that I have added the 390px version of this pale Wikipedia logo ([[commons:Image:Wikipedia-logo til bruk som bakgrunnsbilde.png]]) as the background for the content part of the page (#mw_content), at the bottom right. But I guess that's not KISS enough for the main skin, so another solution would be needed to incorporate a logo.
Comment 2 Mark A. Hershberger 2011-01-27 20:31:41 UTC
The logo for a site is completely different than the skin.  For example, we have logo change requests that are meant to be changes no matter what the user's skin is.
Comment 3 MZMcBride 2011-01-27 20:34:29 UTC
Based on the URL provided in this bug, I assume that this is referring to the English Wikipedia missing a logo in the Modern skin.

Compare <> to <>. Re-opening this for now.

changing scope back to MediaWiki.

Toolserver customized the header via MediaWiki:Common.css. Fact remains that the Modern-skin does not support nor uses the wgLogo setting.

Is that a feature of a bug? ;-)
Comment 7 Marcin Cieślak 2011-03-14 01:25:24 UTC
Chick, simple, cologneblue also do not feature $wgLogo. I think it would be better if nostalgia didn't :) I have no idea how the logo could fit into the Modern look - a piece of random graphics just does not belong here. Toolserver wiki is an exception with a carefully-designed image for this very purpose.
