--- Quote from: groundup on October 05, 2010, 11:26:10 AM ---I can't really figure out how all of the sidebar is created. Once I can figure that out, I am going to change some things up. I want to remove all of that navigation stuff from the sidebar and put it at the top like SMF does. I want to have the Hello, {username}\nRecent Changes\nWatchlist\nMy Contributions\n

In the top bar menu I'd like to put Home, Help, Search, Member (drop down with: User:{username}, Preferences, Talk, Watchlist, Contributions), Members, Logout. I'm thinking between Home and Help I'd also like to put Page with a drop down for the editing controls.

That would remove the need for the first two things in the sidebar: user and navigation. I'd move the search up to the top of that and move page controls just under that. Page controls: Edit, History, Delete, Move, Protect, <hr>, Watch, Refresh. Also in there, I'd like some Javascript to show/hide the [edit] links. It might also link to the user's preferences so you can either have them on/off when browsing.

If at all possible, breadcrumb navigation would be awesome to add. This would probably have to be a template or something that is grabbed by the skin. I don't know how that would work. Then there are the SMF topic buttons like reply/add poll/notify but we'd put in Edit/Delete/Watch.

I have a lot more planned for this skin but I have trouble with skinning MW.

I spent hours getting to know MediaWiki's code to write the SMF Curve Theme for MediaWiki. If you want something changed, just let me know and I'll help you out.

B:
Can we flip the User Info and Navigation sections on the left? It seems counter intuitive to have the user links first.

Joshua Dickerson:
B, that's the point of what I was discussing. I don't want that info over there.

B:
I meant in the meantime, but I suppose I can wait. :)
