Description Nimish Gautam 2009-09-08 18:59:37 UTC
Just documenting users' feature request of a 'Site Default' skin preference.  

If selected, it would sort of be an opt-in for whatever skin the site admin decides to set for the site, rather than explicitly setting a skin preference.  This would also eliminate the issue when users opt out of beta and automatically get their skin defaulted to the site default, irrespective of whether or not this was what they had initially.

AFAIK this is already possible, right, Andrew?

This is easy to implement; but much harder to design.

The user needs to:
* be able to select any skin installed and working
* be able to come back to the default setting ("skin" setting from "user_options" table should be removed or reset to some value indicating "site default").

My first idea is to have another radio button option saying something like that "I don't care, use the site default". 

Currently we indicate default skin by saying "default" next to it's description. 

What about link to custom CSS and JS? should there be any? Should they point to the default skin? or the Special:Mypage/common.js / common.css?

My first guess - the answer to all those questions is "no". Just give another radio button option and nothing more.
