Description skin for PmWiki


Adapted by AndyG from Software Systems Open For Business Please note any bugs or suggestions at the bottom of this page.

This Skin is an adaptation of a Joomla Template called rhuk_milkyway (v1.0.2) created by Andy Miller aka rhuk ( so all thanks go to him for creating a great starting point. Some changes were made to the template, mainly removing aspects of the layout, simplifying the design greatly. Then it was ported to PmWiki skin format. The re-purposing of open source code from one project to another is good for cross pollination of ideas and leverage of existing code.

It is completely CSS based and has a choice of six colours.

The theme is designed with CMS like websites in mind, where the majority of user are not editors, so the edit menu is in a side menu that is conditional on the user being authenticated. This is easy to remove. Just change the code in from:

 (:div1 class="module_menu":)
 !!!Wiki Menu
 (:include {$Group}.PageActions {$SiteGroup}.PageActions :)


 <div class="module_menu">
 <h3>Wiki Menu</h3>
 <!--wiki: Skins.PageActions Site.PageActions                     

It is all valid XHTML and CSS.

This is the first skin that I've posted, so sorry if there are any issues.
