This is a relatively low-frills skin for PmWiki 2 that was created with usability in mind. This skin emphasizes the content with a nice big easy-to-read default font size and few graphical frills. The layout is designed to work well for a a wiki or a non-blog web site, not just a blog. The appearance can easily be changed using CSS, with some samples provided.
The default layout width is optimized for 1024x768 or greater resolution, however the content is easily readable at 800x600 because the sidebar is on the right side. Your 800x600 visitors will need to scroll to see the sidebar menu, but they're probably accustomed to scrolling. The width is controllable with CSS so you can change it to suit your taste.
This skin works well with an as-yet-unreleased version of the CMS Mode recipe. Visitors without edit authorization see a "site view" of the layout that has the look of a normal website. Authors see a "wiki view" that includes the GroupName and wiki-related action links.
Some feature highlights:
For a blog or CMS installation, your site can look like it's not a wiki.
The version installed on this page is BlogSkin 0.01.0.
$Skin = 'blog';

The skin is designed for PmWiki v2.1.27 or newer.
This skin uses tables for layout because doing so causes the pages render as consistently as possible in a wide variety of browsers. No transition to a CSS-only layout is planned.
Making a Logo
The skin's $EnableBlogLogo setting allows you to have a graphical logo rather than text.
One easy way to create a logo is to go to http://cooltext.com/ and make one. Here are some starter suggestions:
Once you have your logo, put it in ''pub/' somewhere (e.g. pub/logos/my_logo.jpg) and set PmWiki's
