We're be around to provide support helping you get setup with MediaWiki, discuss solutions and code review if needed.

Fixing templates

Dark mode requires change on certain wikis and we need help from template editors to fix some of these. Fixes will expedite the release for your favorite project.

Some guidance is provided on: https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Recommendations_for_night_mode_compatibility_on_Wikimedia_wikis
and tooling at: https://night-mode-checker.wmcloud.org/

Talk to us and we'll help you get your wiki ready!
