allow the user to hide and auto-hide the PatternSkin sidebar


This is a UI minimisation of Pattern skin to improve my usage on my 1024x768 pixel tablet notebook.

Specifically, it
  1. reduces the height of the top bar,
  2. makes the sidebar autohide (or allow the user to hide / pin it and
  3. pins the bottom action bar to the bottom of the browser window, allowing you to always access it wherever on the topic you are.

The core focus is to focus on the current topic, while changing as little of the default skin as possible.

   * Set SKIN=hiddenpattern,famfamfam,pattern

Installation Instructions

You do not need to install anything in the browser to use this extension. The following instructions are for the administrator who installs the extension on the server.

Open configure, and open the "Extensions" section. Use "Find More Extensions" to get a list of available extensions. Select "Install".

If you have any problems, or if the extension isn't available in configure, then you can still install manually from the command-line. See http://foswiki.org/Support/ManuallyInstallingExtensions for more help.
