Below are some alternatives to Wikipedia's Main Page. Some serve a special need, while the rest provide a change in style. To use these instead of the default Main Page, access them from here, or set one as your browser's home page, or set one or more up as links on your browser's tool bar.

  • PDA version - for personal data assistants and cellular telephones.
  • Text only - a Main Page without the daily features.
  • Links only - a Main Page with just the links to each section and nothing else.
  • Outline links - links to outline menu sections instead of portals.
  • Simple - no-frills version.
  • Blue boy - blue, with browse box.
  • Classic (2004) - the style of the Main Page in June 2004.
  • Classic (2006) - the style of the Main Page in February 2006.
  • Executive - style and function.
  • Italian-style - looks like the old Italian Wikipedia Main Page.
  • Italian-style 2 - looks like the new Italian Wikipedia Main Page.

  • Simple Search box - reminiscent of Google in its simplicity.
  • Shades of blue - blue tones, with colorful icons and search box.
  • Tabs - with tabs.
  • TOC - with sections and a table of contents.
  • Tomorrow & today - tomorrow's and today's edition combined.

  • In two days - day+2 for featured items and On This Day section.
  • Yesterday's edition - day-1 for featured items and On This Day section.
  • Edit me - feel free to edit this one. What will it look like today?
  • Search box only - only contains the search box.
  • List of the day - same as the current Main Page, with Today's Featured List displayed.
  • No TFP - same as the current Main Page, minus Today's Featured Picture.
  • TFL - adds today's featured list.

You can also preview the main page using any of the site-skins (available to logged-in users).

  • Chick
  • Classic
  • Cologne Blue
  • Modern
  • Monobook (default)
  • MySkin
  • Nostalgia
  • Simple
  • Vector
    (see Help:User style for details on configuring your own skin)

How to reset your default Main Page to one of the above

Paste the following code into your user:username/monobook.js page (where username is your account name), and the main page will be changed to the Classic 2006 main page alternative. You have to be logged on for this to work. If you would like a different main page alternative instead, simply change the url in the code to that of the main page alternative you desire. You may need to bypass your browser's cache in order for the code to take effect.

if (wgPageName == "Main_Page") {
  window.location = "http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Main_Page_alternative_%28Classic_2006%29";
}
