Instiki Stylesheet Tweaks

As you all know, I love Instiki. I saw a page on the site this morning for Stylesheet Tweaks and just had to share mine. I don’t like how narrow Instiki is by default, and I didn’t really like the font. So, I changed it. I’ve hacked a lot of the templates (to make the textarea larger, for example), but my stylesheet is still mostly default with some significant changes.\
Your mileage may vary, especially on the edit page (where I did a good deal of hacking).\
Go get it.

  1. Man, I don’t even know what Instiki is. This is why I visit your page so infrequently, man, I keep showing up to find out there’s some new neat tech I gotta learn about!
    It’s my own fault for putting you in my Startup tab …

  2. Hi, I just downloaded Instiki last nite. Just like you, I don’t like the narrow text area and the font. Unlike you, however, I am incapable of doing anything about it. And then I found this page!
    I tried “Go get it” but only got the source code. How do I modify my Instiki interface with your stylesheet tweak?

  3. Nice stylesheet. I’m using it with Instiki 0.10.2 running under InstantRails on XP. Seems like everything worked with no problems!

  4. Hi Kevin,
    I didn’t download the Instwiki and don’t know how to use it. I just would lilke to make our page (using instwiki) more actractive.
    I could make modifications using the page “edit area” ?
    What do you suggest ?

  5. Is your CSS hard to read because it is condensed? What tools do you use to make chanegs?

  6. just started using Instiki as a paperless office manual and just to generally keep records of anything we previously had to look up. We are loving it but have three problems and would appreciate any advise.
    1 Is there a way to delete a page. It is internal only , not worried about spammers, but sometimes an employee names something inappropriately and I would like to copy the contents to a properly named page.
    2 The day after we started working on I mistakenly deleted everything, trying to get rid of an orphaned page. As you might guess they were all orphans at that time. We have gotten much better but would like to know if there is any type of automatic backup available
    3 Is there a way of making columns, not a table, but to columns of text?
    Thanks in advance for any words of advice you can offer
