so...how do you use the "useskin" feature you have there? When I go to that link, it doesn't look like yours

CPrompt: The URL is slightly different. Now it's http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Search?search=foo&go=Go the new one is http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=foo&useskin=modern

Note that I have a shortcut to do a Wikipedia search, therefore there might be extra arguments in the first URL I pasted.

poi Thanks. I actually figured that out. However, what I was really referring to was that on mas' screenshot the "Today's featured article" and such does not look like that. The layout is different but the blocked sections are not there.

OK...I'm going to have to get some sleep tonight for sure. I just realized that the screenshot was of the Main page and the link was something different... Sorry. I've been working 12 - 14 hr days and little sleep in between.

Later,

Doesn't look finished...

Not sure if they could possibly do worse than the current code, however.

I like it, the old Wikimedia design is God awful! Although on my Mac the font does look a little clunky, I hope this is addressed.

I like the new design. It's easier to read and not nearly as drab as the old design.
