New Wikipedia Design In Beta

Posted by : admin
Filed under : General


For those of you that do not like the current design of Wikipedia, there is some good news.  The Wikimedia team is working on a new design for the website and if you have an account on Wikipedia, you can check it out.  There is a new beta skin/theme that makes Wikipedia look a little bit more glossier and with less of a traditional look and feel.

Anyone that visits a Wikipedia page will notice a link that says “Try Beta” on the top right.  But having an account is required to enable the “Vector” skin.  Editing Wikipedia becomes a lot easier with the new beta skin too.  The English version of Wikipedia has 2.979 million articles in their database as of right now.

“Have you noticed the “Try Beta” link on the top of Wikimedia project sites?  The usability team is proud to introduce the new skin, Vector, and the enhanced toolbar.   Well, they have been available from user preferences over a month now, but we wanted to reach out to anonymous users.  Please check it out and let us know your thought, if you haven’t tried already,” stated Wikimedia Usability Initiative employee Naoko Komura.
