From MediaWiki Pivot Skin

Pivot... a MediaWiki skin...

...that focuses on mobile first but will pivot to all devices and their viewport sizes easily. It uses three grid sizes, large, medium, and small so you control the content and the content does not control you!

The following table provides information about the compatibility of the Pivot skin with MediaWiki.

Pivot MediaWiki PHP
REL1_41 1.41.x 7.4+
REL1_40 1.40.x 7.4+
REL1_39 1.39.x 7.3+
  • The code repository is located on Gerrit, with copies on Phabricator or GitHub. Do NOT use the precursing repository previously hosted solely on GitHub at a different location.
  • When updating to REL1_41 make sure that you place the skin in ../path/to/skins/Pivot/.. instead of ../path/to/skins/pivot/... Otherwise, the skin will break. On REL1_39 and REL1_40, this was the other way around.
