Toolbox links no longer appear after applying gumax skin

Postby jpshake » September 5th, 2009, 10:24 pm

I have applied the gumaxv skin to my Mediawiki site and it looks great. however the toolbox links have disappeared.
Is there something in the code that I must change for them to be active as they would be with the normal Mediawiki skin?

Any help would be great

The skin is based on latest mediawiki, do you have an old mediawiki version on your host?

I am running 1.13.3.

I know it is a couple of versions back.
Is there any way to make them visible without upgrading?

Thanks for the help!

The version seems not the issue... I'm not sure why you cannot see it, it seems specific related to your host or browser issue.

Check your hosting and browser, I cannot tell you the exact issue since there are so many factors that could cause this and based on information that you provide, it doesn't tell me much.

I use both IE 7 and Mozilla Firefox as my browsers.
Both seem to act the same.

The GuMAxv is the skin I am using.
In a standard Mediawiki installation.
Root install directory var/lib/mediawiki
LocalSettings.php etc/mediwiki

Gumaxv installed as per all directions.

What other info could I provide that may help diagnose.

Thanks

I'm a little bit confused with your mediawiki installation, it seems weird to me.

The stardard mediawiki installation is under a www folder... :?

I did an aptitude install..

aptitude install Mediawiki.

I believe it is the default installation folder.

It installed twice for me like this.

/lib rather than www. Not sure why.

I have a couple of extensions and they are running fine.

Any thought's......

Never having such issue like this one, I believe it's due to the mediawiki installation, the editing tools function cannot find the mediawki lib.

You might try it on other host/computer to see what the root cause. The extension works doesn't mean the skin works, they are different. I'm not sure your mediawiki is properly installed/setup.
