At the end of
will find a (long) list of templates.
You need to copy the content of each "Template:***" in a page of your
wiki with exactly the same name.
However... what do you need exactly? Many of these templates are really
specific to mediawiki.org
. If you are interested only in e.g. the
structure of the page then you won't need all the templates.
Also, I would like to know how to use CSS to place
those blocks like on
the MediaWiki Home page. I'm using the Vector theme.
Usually you would find the css of a MediaWiki instance at
MediaWiki:Common.css but in our case you can find it here:
There is a Main Page Styling section.
