First Steps

Creating the Topbar

The template generates the topbar menu from a normal wiki page which contains unordered lists of links. Therefore you have to create a page called “topbar” in your DokuWiki root namespace. Edit it and insert an unordered list of links per menu item. Don't insert anything else than these lists in this page as it will lead to garbage ;-).

  * [[menu item 1]] 
  * [[menu item 2]]
  * [[menu item 3]]


The template style can be configured via the style.ini file located in <dokuwiki>/lib/tpl/sandy/style.ini.
