Difference: PatternSkin (r25 vs. r24)

Pattern Skin

CSS based skin with clean and productive editing environment. For use in corporate or perhaps in personal websites it should be fairly easy to tune the looks or even create a PatternSkin-based new skin.

Installation

Note: You do not need to install anything on the browser to use this skin. The following instructions are for the administrator who installs the skin on the server where TWiki is running.

Note 2: PatternSkin is included with TWiki by default. Use the following instructions only if you are upgrading PatternSkin.

  • Download the ZIP file from the Skin Home page (see below)
  • Unzip PatternSkin.zip in your twiki installation directory
  • Test if installed: /twiki/bin/view/TWiki/PatternSkin?skin=pattern
  • For skin activation see TWikiSkins

Troubleshooting

If you have set the SKIN variable setting to pattern and you still don't see the layout as on the screenshot, a few settings in may have been disabled.

Check these variables here:

  • TWIKILAYOUTURL = /twiki/pub/TWiki/PatternSkin/layout.css
  • TWIKISTYLEURL = /twiki/pub/TWiki/PatternSkin/style.css
  • TWIKICOLORSURL = /twiki/pub/TWiki/PatternSkin/colors.css
  • SKIN = tagme, pattern, topmenu

If TWIKILAYOUTURL or TWIKISTYLEURL don't give a value or point to non-existing files, check in TWikiPreferences that the following variables do exist and that they are set to on:

   * %SYSTEMWEB%.PatternSkin settings:
      * Set TWIKILAYOUTURL = %PUBURLPATH%/%SYSTEMWEB%/PatternSkin/layout.css
      * Set TWIKISTYLEURL = %PUBURLPATH%/%SYSTEMWEB%/PatternSkin/style.css
      * Set TWIKICOLORSURL = %PUBURLPATH%/%SYSTEMWEB%/PatternSkin/colors.css

NOTE: customization of these values should be done in Main.TWikiPreferences

If this still does not work, contact the administrator who installs skins.
