A skin is a visual organization of content for wiki pages. It's different from Color Themes which are set of colors for the various elements of a skin. Note that a given skin must support Color Themes to use them.

Changing the Skin

A skin can be changed at different levels:

  • For the whole wiki
  • For a given space
  • For a given user

In order to change the skin at wiki and space level, the user has to be an administrator for the current XWiki instance. To find more about how to change a skin, check the Changing the Skin section in the Admin Guide.

Skins Extensions

Skins extensions (or, abbreviated SX) are an alternative for developers who want to modify the layout and behavior of certain or all documents in their wiki without the need of changing its skin templates and/or stylesheets. The Skin extensions mechanism, available in all versions of XWiki superior to 1.5, provide the developers with the possibility of pulling extra stylesheets and Javascript files that are not bundled with the skin. You can find out more about Skin Extensions by reading the Skin Extensions Tutorial in the Developer Guide.
