Wikka Skin Selector

This action allows you to select a WikkaSkins skin for HomePage WikkaWiki, among those present in the css/ folder.
Your browser must accept cookies in order for the skin selector to work.

Here's the three-step installation:

1. Add your custom WikkaSkins skins

Just put all your skins in the css/ folder of your Wikka installation.
Many skins can be downloaded and shared from the unofficial WikkaSkinsRepository.

2. Create the skin selector action (actions/selectskin.php)

Save the code below in a new file called actions/selectskin.php:

// Wikka Skin Selector
// Displays a form to switch CSS stylesheet

$currentskin = $this->GetCookie("wikiskin");
echo $this->Format("=== Skin Switcher === --- ");
if ($_POST) {
        $this->SetPersistentCookie("wikiskin", $_POST["skin"]);
echo $this->Format("Current skin: **".$currentskin."** --- --- ");
$handle = opendir('css/');
print $this->FormOpen("","","post");
echo '<select name="skin">';
while (false !== ($file = readdir($handle))) {
        if (ereg("[^xml|^print]\.css", $file)) {
                print   '<option value="'.$file.'">'.$file.'</option>';
echo '</select>';
echo '<input type="submit" name="Submit" value="Set new skin">';
print $this->FormClose();

3. Modify the Wikka Header (actions/header.php)

To allow skin selection a small modification of the header is needed:

original actions/header.php
   <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="css/<?php echo $this->GetConfigValue("stylesheet") ?>" />

modified actions/header.php
 <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="css/<?php echo ($this->GetCookie("wikiskin"))? $this->GetCookie("wikiskin"): $this->GetConfigValue("stylesheet") ?>" />

How to use the skin selector

Just insert {{selectskin}} in a wikka page and start playing.
