I'll probably end up having to use Special:Contact/general, but does anyone know how to test the New Mobile Skin? Adding ?useskin=wikiaphone doesn't seem to repro how the new mobile skin works (especially on dark skins), so I'm guessing it has a different name, but I don't know what it is. -- Fandyllic (talk · contr) 29 Jan 2012 7:18 PM Pacific

Add ?useskin=wikiamobile at the end of the URL. --Dser (wall | email) 02:20, 1/30/2012
Are the only three that work "wikiamobile", standard (oasis), "monobook" ? "vector", "monaco" don't seem to work. 04:36, January 31, 2012 (UTC)
No. First of all, "vector" isn't installed. Some of the other skins you can use are "wikiaphone" and "wikiaapp". —Airhogs777 WCB WS 04:53, January 31, 2012 (UTC)
Okay, I ended up having to use Special:Contact. On WoWWiki some templates are handled poorly on ?useskin=wikiamobile, but work okay on ?useskin=wikiaphone.
I'm hoping to get more pages to work well on the mobile skin, because the Wikia Game Guides app is pretty horrible and only exposes limited pages in WoWWiki. -- Fandyllic (talk · contr) 1 Feb 2012 2:30 PM Pacific
Wikiamobile strips everything of all the useful formatting, while wikiaphone just leaves it as-is. One alternative I've found is to have alternative versions of the template for the phone skin. You can hide things on the wikiamobile with class="main-page-tag-rcs", since that's a class that is by default hidden in wikiamobile. Then, you can hide the phone alternative with custom CSS or any other reasonable method. —Airhogs777 WCB WS 03:59, February 2, 2012 (UTC)
