How can I get a list of skins installed on a site?


The skinlist.phpΔ recipe provides a simple (:skinlist:) directive to do this.

In your local/config.php file, include the line:



This recipe adds a (:skinlist:) markup, which displays a list of available skins for a site.



The $PageSkinList array may contain custom skins to be included or excluded from the listings:

  $PageSkinList['goodskin'] =  1; # add a skin the recipe doesn't seem to find
  $PageSkinList['baadskin'] = -2; # do not list this skin even if available

Unlisting skins is possible since version 20171115.


This recipe requires SkinChange.
