CustomWikiStyles

administrators (intermediate)

This page describes the predefined Wiki Styles and how a Wiki Administrator can define additional Wiki Styles as a local customization for all pages (in local/config.php) or specific groups (in local/$Group.php).

All predefined Wiki Styles are setup in the global array $WikiStyle. To define your own Wiki Styles, add the setting of the correspondent WikiStyle within the array.

Predefined Wiki Styles

The following array-values are set by scripts/wikistyles.php using the SDV()-function (so you can overwrite them by setting them prior in config.php or farmconfig.php):

markup:definition:

text colors:
(equiv. to %define=xxxx color=xxxx%
%black%$WikiStyle['black']['color'] = 'black';
%white%$WikiStyle['white']['color'] = 'white';
%red%$WikiStyle['red']['color'] = 'red';
%yellow%$WikiStyle['yellow']['color'] = 'yellow';
%blue%$WikiStyle['blue']['color'] = 'blue';
%gray%$WikiStyle['gray']['color'] = 'gray';
%silver%$WikiStyle['silver']['color'] = 'silver';
%maroon%$WikiStyle['maroon']['color'] = 'maroon';
%green%$WikiStyle['green']['color'] = 'green';
%navy%$WikiStyle['navy']['color'] = 'navy';
%purple%$WikiStyle['purple']['color'] = 'purple';

list-styles:
%decimal%$WikiStyle['decimal']['apply'] = 'list';
$WikiStyle['decimal']['list-style'] = 'decimal';
%roman%$WikiStyle['roman']['apply'] = 'list';
$WikiStyle['roman']['list-style'] = 'lower-roman';
%ROMAN%$WikiStyle['ROMAN']['apply'] = 'list';
$WikiStyle['ROMAN']['list-style'] = 'upper-roman';
%alpha%$WikiStyle['alpha']['apply'] = 'list';
$WikiStyle['alpha']['list-style'] = 'lower-alpha';
%ALPHA%$WikiStyle['ALPHA']['apply'] = 'list';
$WikiStyle['ALPHA']['list-style'] = 'upper-alpha';

special:
open links in a new browser-window:
%newwin%$WikiStyle['newwin']['target'] = '_blank';
Turns markup into a comment via display:none CSS
%comment%$WikiStyle['comment']['display'] = 'none';

Author-Defined Wiki Styles

  1. The first index of the array defines the style name (e.g. mynewstyle, projectentry etc)
  2. the second index defines the attribute name (e.g. color, background-color, etc.)
  3. the value set defines the attribute value (e.g. red, bold, #00ffcc, etc.)

Sample: If you want to define a (site-wide) style the same as the page style

%define=projectentry color:red%

use

$WikiStyle['projectentry']['color'] = 'red';

The $WikiStyle['projectentry']['apply'] variable may be defined if the wikistyle concerns a particular tag. It may be 'item' (for li|dt), 'list' (for ul|ol|dl), 'div', 'pre', 'img', 'p' or the combining 'block' (for p|div|ul|ol|dl|li|dt|pre|h[1-6]). Example:

 $WikiStyle['top']['apply'] = 'item';
 $WikiStyle['top']['class'] = 'top';

then a markup

 * %top% An important list-item

will output

 <li class="top">An important list-item</li>

Printer-Friendly Styles

If your custom-styles (in local/config.php) are getting very colorful it might be useful to disable them in print-view. This can be done easily by putting them into a condition.

if($action!="print") {
  // your custom-styles
}

Notes

To be done:

Questions:

I tried this but background didn't work, thou border and float worked? /Vincent 2008-04-08

$WikiStyle['vMenu']['background']='#ffffcc' ;
$WikiStyle['vMenu']['float']='left' ;
$WikiStyle['vMenu']['border']='1px dotted red' ;
Try using $WikiStyle['vMenu']['background-color']='#ffffcc'; -- unlike background, background-color is defined in the $WikiStyleCSS array, which is checked for valid properties.

Q: How would i set an image to the left of a paragraph in a WikiStyle? I'd like to provide an icon for paragraphs that are notes, important, warnings, etc.
