Part 1

the as-shipped TWiki/WebHome.txt uses WIKILOGOURL%, WIKILOGOIMG%, WIKILOGOALT% and when referring to "The official TWikiTM site is http://twiki.org/"

To Fix use hardcoded paths:

<a href="http://TWiki.org/">
<img src="%PUBURLPATH%/TWiki/TWikiLogos/horzTWiki.gif" alt="Powered by TWiki" border="0">
The official TWiki<sup>TM</sup><br> site is 
<a href="http://twiki.org/" target="_top">http://twiki.org/</a>

There are more bugs in this class. At the end of TWiki/WebHome.txt there is:
   * Get the current version from [[http://TWiki.org/download.html][TWiki.org Downloads]] <br />
     <a href="%WIKILOGOURL%"><img src="%WIKILOGOIMG%" border="0" alt="%WIKILOGOALT%"/></a>

it takes as long to document these as it does to fix them. Can I do this without having checkin access to SVN?

Part 2

TWIKIWEB% uses localised WIKILOGOIMG% for top left (pattern skin), but MAINWEB% and SandBox are not: http://yukongis.ca/bin/view/Main/FrontPage vs http://yukongis.ca/bin/view/TWiki/FrontPage (latter example is correct).

of PatternSkin's defined styles?

The instructions in PatternSkinCustomization for overriding the default styles for the entire site talk about modifying a complete copy of layout.css and/or style.css. I have found that for my needs, I only need to change a few of the styles. However, having done this, I'm now in the position of having to update my customized stylesheets if I want it to keep up with other changes made to PatternSkin. If I could overlay just a few custom styles, I would only have to worry about updating those few styles should a subsequent change in PatternSkin create a conflict.

Therefore, in the interest of making it easy to create and manage custom "themes" that build on the great foundation of PatternSkin, this would be a very userful feature (if it's not currently implemented). If there isn't a way to do this currently, I'd be glad to submit a feature request.

(BTW, this would be a logical compliment to the recent enhancement in DEVELOP allowing specification of multiple skins in "Set SKIN" preference. Perhaps a parallel mechanism could be implemented for TWIKILAYOUT and TWIKISTYLE variables.)

-- LynnwoodBrown - 23 Jul 2005 if you want to customise the web's logo, you need to be setting the WEBLOGO* variables. WIKILOGO* has been more closely associated with the WIKITOOLNAME set of variables. see TWiki:Codev.LogoPerWeb and TWiki:Codev.DakarReleaseNotes#WEBLOGONAME_WEBLOGOIMG_WEBLOGOUR and TWiki:Codev.DakarReleaseNotes#WIKILOGOIMG_WIKILOGOURL_WIKILOGO. if that doesn't clear things up, reopen this bug so that we can improve the documentation.

Part 1: The hard coded paths on the WebHome page are still a problem as the graphic of twiki.org is changed to whatever the localised image is. This isn't a bug report about the variable WIKILOGOIMG, rather that in these two instances the variable shouldn't be used.

Pat 2: I don't want to change the web logo, I'm using the same logo for the entire site. My complaint is that it is using different logos for different webs when I haven't asked it to do that.

One way to fix this is to change the default WEBLOGOIMG to be:


Yes, you can fix them without checkin access (if you are using a checkout rather than a distro build). Simply make the fixes in your checkout area; then
$ cd twikiroot
$ svn up
$ svn diff > fixes.diff
and mail me fixes.diff. CC

'kay, thanks Crawford. [MW]

changed weblogoURL example abover to the intended weblogoIMG smile

if you do this before i do, i would prefer that you mailed me the diff, so that i can review your proposed changes. thanks, TWiki:Main.WillNorris

Is this isn't done in the next couple of days, it's not going into Dakar. CC
