I have SKIN et al set in Main/TWikiPreferences and leave TWiki/TWikiPreferences and TWiki/WebPreferences intact as defaults where SKIN = pattern. By doing so, an error message occurs in TWiki/InstalledPlugins where TWiki::Plugins::NatSkinPlugin::initPlugin did not return true (0)

The only problem is the status said in TWiki/InstalledPlugins where it shown as disabled with the above error message. But the great thing is, NatSkin still works for all webs, including Main.

This is no error - this is a feature wink

NatSkinPlugin disables itself for topics the SKIN is not set to nat. Just ignore the core issuing a pointless warning.
