The SXS template is based on the Roundbox template. It is a style modification, and an update for compatibility with the most recent version of DokuWiki. It uses a sidebar and includes a PSD file for a custom header bar graphic.

- Unpack the zip file into the /lib/tpl/ directory.
- In /conf/local.php set
$conf['template'] = 'sxs';
- If you so desire, you can edit the following files:
lib/tpl/sxs/conf.php: Obvious configuration choices, including title.

This is template is more-or-less a copy of the Roundbox template, though I think I've totally dropped the roundness feature. Colors are changed, and the appearance is different in a few ways. Most importantly, this works quite nicely with (my version of) the 2006-03-09b release of DokuWiki.

conf.php), the title bar graphic and home link (in
topheaders.html), the available links (in

I am not sure, but I think there is a bug if you configure: $conf['sxs_sidebar_orientation'] = 'left'. The sidebar is also on the right side. I don´t find a possibility to put it on the left side.
Can we have the search functionality added to this template? It's an important part of the wiki, I would think.
Suggested Fix: Add the searchform line to main.php, in the “user info” block as shown below
<!-- start user info --> <div class="user"> <?php tpl_searchform()?> <br><br> <?php tpl_userinfo() ?> </div> <!-- end user info -->

Title reads Physics Wiki, instead of the title from config.php
Incidentally, people are sometimes scandalized by the name “SXS”, for whatever reason. It stands for “Simulating eXtreme Spacetimes”, which is the name of my research group.
