WikiaCommunityCentralTheme recreates the classic, pre-Fandom Community Central look and feel. The layout was created from insights of old archives of the CC Wiki Theme, including self-taken screen-captures of CC Wiki before the redesign.

As of March 2017, I've been finding the classic pre-Fandom Community Central layout difficult to maintain, as Fandom has recently introduced new Fandom layouts which are too difficult to overcome without serious work which is far more trouble than it's worth.

So I've just been maintaining the colour scheme since it's the most important part of keeping the classic pre-Fandom Community Central look and feel.

  • Although recreating the classic Wikia Community Central Theme for most of the elements seen in Oasis skin has so far been successful, there are still a few elements that haven't or haven't yet been changed with this stylesheet.
    • Attempts to change the colour of the FounderProgressWidget preview founder-progress-bar-click-area have so far been unsuccessful since the author hasn't been able to inspect any CSS that can change it. It's probably no big deal to CC users though, since only discussion moderators, administrators, vanguards, global discussion moderators, content volunteers, soap, helpers, wiki specialists, wiki representatives, and staff can access the admin dashboard, and Community Central doesn't have a founder progress widget anyway, since older wikis don't have them.
