  • Test if installed


To set Foswiki Site skin as default (site wide) skin, use these settings in Main.SitePreferences:

   * Set SKIN = foswikisite,pattern
   * Global skin styles. To change the look of the site, point these variables to custom CSS attachments.
      * Set FOSWIKI_LAYOUT_URL = %PUBURLPATH%/%SYSTEMWEB%/FoswikiSiteSkin/layout.css
      * Set FOSWIKI_STYLE_URL = %PUBURLPATH%/%SYSTEMWEB%/FoswikiSiteSkin/style.css
      * Set FOSWIKI_COLORS_URL = %PUBURLPATH%/%SYSTEMWEB%/FoswikiSiteSkin/colors.css

   * Overriding styles that add upon the global and theme styles. Enabled by default but empty to prevent browsers from fetching %<nop>USERLAYOUTURL%-style URLs.
      * Set USERSTYLEURL =
      * Set WEBHEADERART =
   * Set TABLEPLUGIN_TABLEATTRIBUTES = tableborder="1" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" valign="top" headercolor="#444444" headerbg="#e0e0e4" headerbgsorted="#c5c5cc" databg="#ffffff,#edf4f9" databgsorted="#f1f7fc,#ddebf6" tablerules="rows"
