Customize with page header and sidebar

    Standard phpwiki seems rather "unbranded". I'd like to modify the top and side of every page, but can't figure what to modify.

    Any suggestions?

      I did this by setting the theme to an existing one (Wordpress) and modifying it.

      Open up the template (.tmpl) files in the themes/wordpress/templates folder - these are the files that are assembled to create your pages.

      To create my custom header, I added a <div> to the beginning of body.tmpl, assigned it a class, and specified the height, width, position, and background image (in my case, a graphical banner) in the stylesheet. I recall having to delete a bunch of stuff, as the Wordpress theme put the title of the page in text at the top.

      Hope this gets you started :)
