Wiki Theme

Hey everybody,

I've been interested in playing around with moin for a good while and I finally got around to getting my own server up again so I had the space and ability to set up my own install to poke around in. So I came up with a Fedora theme for it (I started with cornicen from the moin ThemeMarket [1] as a base):


The mockups I started out with and the theme files are here:


Also note that a lot of mockups have been put together for the wiki over time; ideas from all of them are in what I came up with:

From Matt Munoz:

From Jeremy:

I really like the basic layout of Jeremy's mockup, and I think something like the large, dark center banner is something we could use on a non-wiki front page. It reminds me a lot of the www.gnome.org banner space, which has been helpful for advertising events and releases for GNOME.

Although I am not 100% happy with the look (needs more cowbell/bling!), I do think the theme addresses some of my long time usability nags with our current theme (the placement of the account preferences always bugged me, for example). I was also looking to come up with a style that would fit in nicely on another CMS, so maybe we could use the wiki for being a wiki and have a CMS that is managed more carefully for non-contributors looking to learn more about Fedora - see the navbar in the mocks? (not in the theme yet)

I figured I would send this out so more people knew about it (folks have been helping me out with it this weekend in #fedora-admin). If anybody has ideas on how to improve it (especially bling-wise :) ) let's discuss it!
