Skin: “GreenSolutions”

This very light theme has green hovers. The wiki size is pretty small and fixed so that it will not adjust to any width of the browser. The “TopMenuBar” you will find at the top of the page as well as at the bottom of the page.

Skin: “Wikipedia”

This theme is very close to Wikipedia’s layout. The “TopMenuBar” that contains several links to a choosen target, is hidden. You can open or close parts of the menu. The wiki size adjust  to any width of the browser.

    these themes are awesome !!!

    by the way, i’ve just deployed the wikipedia theme, and i found 2 “bugs”:
    – the area around the logo is too big, it overlaps the wiki main page
    ==> i had to edit the CSS.
    – the extended search results overlaps as well the textbox.
    ==> i had to edit the CSS.

    Thank you for Bluespice and these great themes!

    I might have found a bug in the wikipedia skin.
    I’ve tried to change to top-left logo via the admin preferences. Changing the setting “logopath” didn’t have any effect. Instead I had to replace the logo image (wikipedia-logo.png) in the directory bluespice-skin/wikipedia/.

    Hi, skins have a pretty look buut when I try to load them I got this error:
    “Fatal error: Class ‘BsConfig’ not found in /skins/GreenSolutions.php on line 541″

    Any ideas ?

      Maybe it is because the skins are compatible to BlueSpice 1.21. If you tried to use them with BlueSpice 2.22. it won’t work, sorry. But we will publish an update next year.

    Nice skin, When was the template last updated.

    Is there any timetable to re-release the Wikipedia-Skin for BlueSpice 2.2? That will be fine. It looks pretty compact and comfortable.

      Hey there, yeah well, the skins are for BlueSpice 1 but we plan to update them, or offer even new ones, at the end of april. We will keep you informed about that.
      Greetings Nathalie

    I’m having trouble installing the themes. Maybe I am putting the themes in the wrong catalog.
    My installation:
    Windows IIS
    so the bluespice plugin is installed under

    According to the attached documentation for the skin, it should be placed in:


    like so:

    Am I placing the skin in the wrong place?

      Hello Gustav,

      what you are trying to do is to implement a BlueSpice 1.21 in a BlueSpice 2.22 installtion.
      This won’t work, because BlueSpice 1.21 is in no way compatible with BlueSpice 2.22.

      Best Regards

    Hi Gustav, is it possible that you use BlueSpice 2.22.x? Then I have bad news… those skins are only for BlueSpice 1.21.x.
    We will try to publish some skins for the new versions in our shop ( but I think it will be spring next year….
    Greetings Nathalie Köpff

      Ah ok yes that’s why..

      Great to know. Hmm, maybe I should try bluespice 1.21

        If you really want to have this skin, maybe yes, but honestly we didn’t tried it yet to downgrad BlueSpice 😉 And you have to downgrade MediaWiki as well. BlueSpice 2.22.2 is a very good release and you will take a step back then (we changed some stuff in the architecture, new extensions, …) – we think it might cause some problems….
