  • cross-browser - the skin was tested in Mozilla and IE 6. Didn't notice any strange things, although it looks better in Mozilla. In NN4 and non-graphical browsers the skin degrades nicely.
  • easy install, with no changes to the core (see below for install)
  • side menu
  • very easy to apply another theme to this skin (see the 'seneca' package - which is basically the same skin, but with a different stylesheet and some very minor other changes, so that it now reflects the corporate image of the company I work for) I'm working on making it really themeable, so that it just requires a different style sheet and an adapted twiki.*.tmpl to apply a different look 'n feel.

The name

The idea for the layout of this skin came from a weblog I once bumped into: http://unadorned.org/dandruff

I kind of like the design and made a skin out of it (with permission of the webmaster of unadorned.org).


  • Alpha: not all screens implemented yet, some glitches
  • There are some issues with the 'oops' screens. Can't lay a finger on the exact issue, but every now and then I won't get an 'oops' screen but something totally different - especially with 'oops/more'. Seems to have something to do with running twiki under mod_perl, as without mod_perl I don't see this behavior. Well - unless somebody recognises this and has an idea, I'll investigate further when I've some time to waste.


  • download the dandruff.tgz package
  • unpack it in your twiki installation directory
  • if necessary fix the file permissions (all files should be readable by your webserver, the data/TWiki/SideBar.txt should also be writeable)
  • set SKIN = dandruff in Web or TWiki preferences
  • In webpreferences: set WEBFANCYNAME to something nice (or to %WEB% if you don't feel like being creative). Used at the top of every page.
  • In webpreferences: set WEBDESCRIPTION to something usefull (or leave empty if you ...). This value will appear at the top of the page, just below the fancy name.
  • edit TWiki.SideBar to your convience. The default should be usable. Currently it is a mix of raw html and WikiML, however I'm working on changing this (no - I will not follow the side menu syntax from tigerskin et. al. as I find this kind of horrible. See DandruffSkinDev for my ideas for this.)

See the 'seneca.tgz' package for a different theme. After installing dandruff, just unpack it and set SKIN = seneca

Note - this calls something named savemulti which is not present in the 12/2001 stable release. Also the logo in the css is hardcoded to /pub/skins so if your path is different you may want to change that

I've taken the liberty of attaching savemulti (and searchmulti) from the KoalaSkin v. 2.9 distribution: you'll need this or equivalent to get this skin working.
