Nyud.net image mirror
To use the excellent nyud.net mirror service to host the thumbnails of pictures ([[Image:picture.jpg|400px]]), change the image source tag to include nyud.net:8080 in the url. This change will affect all thumbs on a wikipage but not the large/full image. This is by choice.

To add new boxes the the left menu, each box has to be hard coded into the MonoBook.php skin file.

Search box portion:
<?php } ?> <div id="p-search" class="portlet">
New box put in-between the lines above:
<div class="portlet"> <h5>site support</h5> <div class="pBody"> new box content </div> </div>
It seems many don't mess around and want to change the default wikilogo.
It's quite easy, just create a new image with the dimentions 135x135 pixels with transparent background in Photoshop, export as PNG.
Put the file in wiki/skins/common/images/ivc_wiki.png. And link the image in LocalSettings.php:
$wgLogo = "$wgStylePath/common/images/ivc_wiki.png";
