This skin overwrites Main.WebHome!

It mainly contains an horizontal menu that shows the active tab. You can easily add/remove items in the menu and manage the social buttons : Facebook, Twitter and Google + to promote your company.

The best is to use the colorTheme that is provided in the skin, but it works with defaults, so you are able to use another one or to create a new Color Theme.

The skin also manages a multilingual site with flag for languages. Please be sure your flag is present, or add a new one. The flags used are those provided by famfamfam. The following flags are already available: EN (en.png), FR (fr.png), IT (it.png), DE (de.png), RO (ro.png). In order to add new flags, just attach them in the skin on the page XWiki.LeiothrixSkin.

Please find below some screeshots of the skin and the menu setting.
