The Void Skin

The default skin on my TWiki site is the 'void' skin, so named because the stylesheet for it was derived from one at http://www.dotvoid.com (with permission). The skin uses almost no graphics - just a small gif for the "Go" button next to the search box at the top of the page, and a "preview" graphic on the preview page. Layout is entirely controlled by css - i.e. the skin does not use tables, frames, or iframes. Consequently, the skin loads quickly and displays well in browsers that support CSS. I've tested the skin with all versions of IE 5.0 and above, Mozilla 1.0, and Konqueror. It looks about the same in each of those browsers.

Currently the only templates are for view, preview, and edit.


Installation is not quite standard:

  1. unzip the templates into the twikitemplates directory
  2. unzip the contents of the VoidSkin directory into the twiki/pub/TWiki/VoidSkin directory.
  3. set skin = void in WebPreferences or TWikiPreferences.
  4. unzip and edit the file twikidata/TWiki/TWikiPreferencesForVoidSkin.txt and adjust the settings there to fit your needs, and add those settings to TWikiPreferences.

This skin has been submitted to twiki.org at TWiki:Plugins/VoidSkin

The settings in TWikiPreferences
