Installable with the Extension Manager


The Oriole ColorTheme has been built using the Nightingale skin. For better look, it's advised to use XWiki 3.4 and above, Nightingale Skin, or a CSS3 skin. 





Prerequisites & Installation Instructions

We recommend using the Extension Manager to install this extension (Make sure that the text "Installable with the Extension Manager" is displayed at the top right location on this page to know if this extension can be installed with the Extension Manager). Note that installing Extensions when being offline is currently not supported and you'd need to use some complex manual method.

You can also use the following manual method, which is useful if this extension cannot be installed with the Extension Manager or if you're using an old version of XWiki that doesn't have the Extension Manager:

  1. Log in the wiki with a user having Administration rights
  2. Go to the Administration page and select the Import category
  3. Follow the on-screen instructions to upload the downloaded XAR
  4. Click on the uploaded XAR and follow the instructions
  5. You'll also need to install all dependent Extensions that are not already installed in your wiki

Simply import the .xar file, and import it as it is. Then, choose the "Oriole Theme" into Presentation panel, in Administration section.

Two background images come with the theme, Left oriented bird and right oriented one. Depending on the layout you use (for example panels to left, right, or both), you would use a background, or another. By default, right background bird is used.
If you want to set the bird to left oriented background, you have to modify the ColorTheme (/xwiki/bin/edit/ColorThemes/OrioleTheme) and to specify "oriolebackgroundleft" into "page background image" field, and "left bottom no-repeat" into "Page background image position and repeat" field.

Release Notes
