Using PC Gaming Wiki skin on my own site (nonprofit)

Recommended Posts



I'm currently creating my own website, I have no experience in web development (currently there's only one image up on my site). I'd love to use PCGW skin, but how?

I don't know what extensions are used.

I don't know this seems like a terrible way to approach things. You are not going to learn anything if you don't struggle a bit on your own. And don't you have to share the source of your own website if you use this? I don't know how the license works exactly.

I don't agree, asking for help is completely acceptable. I've already struggled quite a bit.

I've donated over 50€ to PCGW and I think this kind of question is maybe more than justified...

It likely would make no sense to use MediaWiki, there are only my contact details on the site, but I would like to add some visual flair. 

Is there a way to "only" use the skin without doing stupid things like embedding a screenshot as background image (or is that actually a good idea?)?


I'm absolutely trying to cut corners, sorry.
