Feature Summary

  • Customizable: Main sections (headers and footers) of the page are stored as wiki pages, so you don't need to know HTML.
  • '''Width of content and sidebar can be changed.
  • Adds full support for BlogIt, a blogging engine for PmWiki. This means that your elements of the blog page will seamlessly fit within the skin.
  • Color switching: Easily switch skin colors or create your own skin colors.
  • Supports removal of header/title/right/footer elements using directives on specific pages or site wide.
  • Fully CSS driven: All files are fully commented, and the design has been made easy to modify. The CSS used for layout and coloring are in separate files allowing easy customization of colors, without having to wander throughout the layout styles.

Download and Installation

  • Download the skin package (ZIP or TAR) and unzip it into your skins directory (usually pmwiki/pub/skins).
  • Add the following to your local configuration file: $Skin = 'minimous';
  • If you use a page logo, add this to config.php:
$PageLogoUrl="URL_TO_IMAGE";
  • Optionally set the logo height and width. The skin will calculate this for you, but if you know the dimensions you should specify them, including the units of measure (ie, 'px'):
$PageLogoUrlWidth='154px';
$PageLogoUrlHeight='24px';
  • If you do not use a page logo, or want to override the default logo, add this to config.php:
$PageLogoUrl="";

Optional

Change the color (copper is the default). Refer to colors for more color options.

$SkinColor = 'green';

Color Switching

You can switch the color theme site wide by updating your config.php with:

$SkinColor = 'blue';

Or simply pass a parameter:

?color=red

You can try out the color schemes using the color selector menu. The included color schemes are:

  • teal
  • blue
  • green
  • purple
  • yellow
  • orange
  • pink

BlogIt for Blogs

Minimous fully supports the BlogIt blogging engine, automatically -- you don't need to do anything other than install BlogIt.

Page Layout

  • Blue: Included pages. These can be edited as normal PmWiki pages.
  • Green: PmWiki variables. Usually set in config.php.
  • Red: Disable section. Markup is for in-page use; SetTmplDisplay is for use in config.php.

Sections can be removed from the page or the site with special markup.

  • Turn off sections on a page with markup (:noXXX:).
  • Turn off sections for the whole site in config.php by setting:
SetTmplDisplay('PageXXXFmt', 0);

Header

You can set the Title and the Tag-line by setting the following in config.php:

$WikiTitle = "My site";
$WikiTag   = "Site description";

The wiki file Site.SiteHeader can be overridden with a Group level page. If you want to change the layout of the header edit either {$Group}.SiteHeader or {$SiteGroup}.SiteHeader. The default value for the header is:

! %block sitetitle%[[{$ScriptUrl} | {$WikiTitle}]]
(:div class="sitetag":){$WikiTag}
(:divend:)

Top Navigation Tabs

In order to change the links available in the navigation tabs, edit Site.SiteNav, and use a list format as below:

* [[Grp/MyPage | Page 1]]
* [[Grp/MyPage | Page 2]]
* [[Grp/MyPage | Page 3]]

Side Bar

The other likely change you'll want to make is on the Side Bar. In this case edit Site.SideBar, and use a list format below:

%sidehead% [[Header 1]]
* [[First Level]]
** [[Second level]]

Footer

The wiki file Site.SiteFooter contains the last modified date.
