Salient features:

  • Skins can be changed on the fly
  • All styling done through CSS
  • Same CSS for IE and Mozilla
  • XHTML complaint html
  • Tables have been used sparingly

Here are the steps to configure the skins:

  • JSPWiki is used to denote the location of you wiki
  • Unzip the contents of to a temporary location
  • Copy ButtonMenu dir to the JSPWiki/templates
  • Edit JSPWiki/WEB-INF/ to set templateDir to ButtonMenu e.g. 'jspwiki.templateDir = ButtonMenu'
  • To change wiki skins modify JSPWiki/templates/ButtonMenu/WikiCSS.jsp
    • WikiSkinBlue.css
    • WikiSkinOrange.css
    • WikiSkinGreen.css

Here is link to my wiki using the ButtonMenu skin. The above site is running on my home server and the service provider may change the IP address so it may not be available all the time. Please let me know if the site is down. bhira AT hotmail DOT com

The ButtonMenu skins are CSS based and use a standard layout for all the skins. The layout for the wiki pages is defined in the JSP files under templates/ButtonMenu directory. The JSP files have no styling information; all the styles are governed by the CSS files. All the pages in the wiki include the WikiCSS.jsp which embeds the link to the correct CSS file. There are 3 pre-packaged CSS files namely: WikiSkinBlue.css, WikiSkinOrange.css and WikiSkinGreen.css. The CSS files work fine both for IE and Mozilla and there is no need for separate CSS implementations for different browsers. Just make sure that whenever you modify the CSS files you test it for both IE and Mozilla.

Cool, eh?
