Pattern skin

PatternSkin is developed to provide a CSS based default look and feel for TWiki - flexible and W3C-compliant. Its layout and color scheme are designed to provide a nice, 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.

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

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:

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:

   * %TWIKIWEB%.PatternSkin settings:
      * Set TWIKILAYOUTURL = %PUBURL%/%TWIKIWEB%/PatternSkin/layout.css
      * Set TWIKISTYLEURL = %PUBURL%/%TWIKIWEB%/PatternSkin/style.css

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

For further troubleshooting and feedback, go to TWiki:Plugins/PatternSkinDev.

Creating your own look

It is easy to tune the look and feel of PatternSkin by changing the color and space (margin, padding) settings in the Style Sheet files.

You may also choose to radically change the look and create a PatternSkin-based new skin. This is easier than to create a skin by writing new template files; you can concentrate on how things should look instead of what elements should get displayed.

You can eiter:

  • Change the layout.css and style.css attachment files for this topic (upload updated versions)
  • In TWikiPreferences, point the variables TWIKILAYOUTURL and TWIKISTYLEURL to other attachments, perhaps in another topic (your new skin topic?)

If you want to change colors and white space of screen elements, modify style.css.
If you want to change the positioning of screen elements, modify layout.css.

The CSS classes that PatternSkin uses are documented in PatternSkinCss.
