    Issues - Installing MediaWiki 1.19.1 (Stable)

    Hello.

    I've just installed MediaWiki 1.19.1 (Stable) from the OPS panel - 'simple scripts'.

    It appears to be installed ok, however i'm missing the "skins" directory,

    (of course, i'm getting errors when trying tio run the wiki in the website).

    How / where can i get the files thats needed for the 'skins' directory' ? Thank you

    Fatal error: Cannot instantiate abstract class Skin in /hermes/waloraweb088/b2516/pow.USERNAME/htdocs/subdomains/wiki/includes/Skin.php on line 171

    ok, it seems to be going

    I'm now looking for basic instructions on editing the look/feel of the headers / footers.

    EXAMPLE :-

    I've found instructions on walking to a refridgerator (to get milk), But what I'm after is a complete guide in how to cook a meal. not bits & pieces of instructions.

    - basically, to remove the big blue area at the top - maybe replace with the name of my new wiki.

    (I've found in the HTML output, where the menu is & stuff - but not in the actual template file )
