Customising

If your template supports it, you can add a 'sidebar' by creating a page called 'sidebar' and adding something to it. A common thing to do is use the indexmenu plugin to display a list of pages.

If you use the tag plugin the sidebar goes missing on tag pages. A workround for this is to edit your wiki's theme, which is what controls when the sidebar appears.

For the default theme, find a line that says

$showSidebar = $hasSidebar && ($ACT=='show');

And tell it to also display the sidebar on pages that use showtag, so it reads:

$showSidebar = $hasSidebar && ($ACT=='show' || $ACT == 'showtag');

Customising the shortcuts and icons for interwiki links involves three steps:

  1. Add the shortcut and syntax to conf/interwiki.local.conf,
  2. Add a 16×16 GIF or PNG image with the same name as your shortcut to lib/images/interwiki/,
  3. Refresh the wiki's cache by running rm -rf data/cache/*/*.{gif,png,css} from the wiki's base directory.

※ I think it looks best if you don't fill the bottom two pixels of your icon, so they sit on the same line as the text.
