EEA Design 2006




Egg version of EEADesign2006 skin


EEADesign2006 is a product that adds a new style to a Plone 2.1.x portal. It creates a new skin selection to the 'portal_skins' tool (called EEADesign2006), and registers a custom stylesheet (called eeadesign2006.css) with the 'portal_css' tool.

EEADesign2006 is based on DIYPloneStyle 1.0.4, a skeleton product ready for building new graphical designs for Plone.


Place EEADesign2006 in the Products directory of your Zope instance and restart the server.

In Plone go to the 'Site Setup' page and click on the 'Add/Remove Products' link.

Choose EEADesign2006 (check its checkbox) and click the 'Install' button.

You may have to empty your browser cache to see the effects of the product installation/uninstallation.

Uninstall -- This can be done from the same management screen.

Selecting a skin

Depending on the value given to SELECTSKIN (in, the skin will be selected (or not) as default one while installing the product. If you need to switch from a default skin to another, go to the 'Site Setup' page, and choose 'Skins' (as portal manager). You can also decide from that page if members can choose their preferred skin and, in that case, if the skin cookie should be persistent.

Note -- Don't forget to perform a full refresh of the page or reload all images (not from browser cache) after selecting a skin. In Firefox, you can do so by pressing the 'shift' key while reloading the page. In IE, use the key combination <Ctrl-F5>.
