From MediaWiki Pivot Skin
Here are some answers to frequently asked questions when using the Pivot skin. Common questions will be added as they are asked or ask one if you can't find the answer.
Issues and Feature Requests
- Question: I would like to report and issue or ask for a new feature. How do I do this?
Answer: You can report issues and feature requests at the issue tracker on GitHub. GitHub is the location where the software repository is hosted and where the development is done. The issue tracker is located at this spot.
Icons Are Broken
- Question: My icons do not show or look broken in the sidebar and/or drop down menu. What is wrong?
Answer: It is more than likely a server issue with MIME types not being set correctly or the web server's default
Content-Type being set to something besides
text/plain. Pivot has the Font Awesome font files included. Missing MIME types or a different default
Content-Type setting will break the fonts because the browser does not know how to decode or blocks them. Depending on your server type you will have to make a change to your
.htaccess file or if using NGINX, your config folder and look for the mime.types file. See How to setup server to serve fonts for more information.
- Question: There is a missing icon in my "Actions" or "Toolbar" menu. Why? How do I add icons?
MediaWiki:Pivot.js page something similar to this code:
$('li#n-recentchanges a').prepend('<div id="drop-icon"><i class="fa fa-tasks fa-fw"></i></div>')
li#n-recentchanges a is the element id of "Recent changes" and
fa fa-tasks fa-fw is the class of the icon found on Font Awesome's website. Find the icon you want on the Font Awesome website and the element id by using the inspect feature of your browser. Add the code to your
MediaWiki:Pivot.js page, save and reload page. Please be aware of js file caching in your browser and server side depending on your installation settings. See our MediaWiki:Pivot.js page to see how the code looks to add the icon for "Images slider" looks.
