Caboteria Skin

This skin is an attempt at a clean, css-driven layout. It's entirely text-based (except for the watermark) since I can't draw. I designed it for my vanity website http://www.caboteria.org/. It's known to work with the 4.3.2 version of TWiki and probably won't work with anything older than 4.1.0 since it's based on PatternSkin.

For best results, you'll probably want to mess around with the variables in TWikiPreferences.

This skin's TWiki page is http://twiki.org/cgi-bin/view/Plugins/CaboteriaSkin.


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.

If you'd like to change the watermark image you can attach it to this page and edit the caboteria.css style sheet file. It's at the top of the file:

body {
  background: url(bullard.jpg) bottom right no-repeat fixed;}

Change bullard.jpg to your image file name.

Skin Version: 14 Dec 2009
Change History:  
14 Dec 2009 Updated to work with 4.3.2.
18 Feb 2007 Updated to work with 4.1.1. Fairly major changes - I started from scratch using PatternSkin as a template. No longer uses the Tigris style sheets.
24 Dec 2006 two tweaks: change title separator character from "<" to "-", and fix the display of a topic's parents in the breadcrumb bar.
21 Dec 2006 Updated to work with 4.0.5. Large-scale changes to work with the new templates.
04 Sep 2004 Uploaded new version that includes Tigris style sheets. It also includes this metadata so it will display in TWikiSkinBrowser.
06 Jan 2004 Fixed the "breadcrumbs" so they will display a document's parent (if it has one). Cut the context info out of the title, I think it makes sense to have just the page name and site name.
31 Dec 2003 MatiasPalomec suggested a couple of enhancements that make the skin more generic (use TWiki variables for things like the site name and webmaster email instead of hardcoding them). Thanks, Matias! Also fixed the broken "Go" form and modified the page title so the page name is first.
26 Feb 2003 Tom Wittbrodt pointed out that the stylesheet link in the skin and in caboteria.css was broken. It pointed to a location outside of the wiki, but it should work now. Thanks, Tom!
