You can preview the skin at www.trhodes.net. TextPattern is no longer being used on the author's site.
ftp or upload the contents of textpattern.zip to /Path to PmWiki/pub/skins/textpattern/
Edit /Path to PmWiki/local/config.php
Change the line: $Skin = 'pmwiki';
to: $Skin = 'textpattern';
By default, the skin renders the current page name as the header title. To use the wiki title instead, add:
$SkinPartFmt['title'] = "$WikiTitle";
Customize Site Slogan
Edit the file: /path to PmWiki/pub/skins/textpattern/textpattern.php
Change the line: $Slogan = "What goes up must come down.";
to: $Slogan = "Text to display under page title";
Set $PageLogoFmt = "$PubDirUrl/skins/textpattern/logo.gif"; in config.php, skin is designed to use a logo that is 100 x 100 pixles in size.
The skin uses Site.SideBar (or $Group.SideBar) for the left menu, which should be right-aligned. %sidehead% or bulleted list items in Site.SideBar do not work well with this skin.
In PmWiki, Edit the page: Site.EditQuickReference
In the top line, change: width='100%' to width='690px'
Credits and Thanks!
This being my first skin, there may be issues or things that I could have done to make things easier, cleaner, etc. If an experienced skin designer wants to take a look at it and clean it up or make suggestions, please feel free to do so.
Unpack in sub directory textpattern.
