Leaves Skin for `PmWiki

Overview

This is a minimalist three-column skin for `PmWiki 2 that was created with usability in mind. It evolved from a template found at OpenSource WebDesign. The appearance is not intended to be pro quality, but to fit well with text-intensive sites with many categories and recent updates.

It uses $PageCustodianFmt to take care of edit links (otherwise disguised as the $WikiSlogan)

Design Objectives

  • Emphasize the content.
  • Keep the main content area a reasonable width for easier reading.
  • Treat screen pixels as valuable and scrolling as inconvenient.
  • Keep menus always visible, giving site navigation links conspicuous placement in the layout.
  • Be easy to use for both inexperienced and seasoned veteran wiki users.
  • Provide an adequate text area (approx. 80 x 28) for easy editing.
  • Produce pages that render similarly in various browsers.
  • Encourage wiki users to create well-structured web documents.

The skin could validate as xhtml1.1 transitional if not for PmWiki's behaviour of opening "<p>" after every blank line.

This skin is in badly need of improvement, but already looks great here (personal site of the creator)
