I'd really like to get a solid skin out there that is more Tolkienish than that boring Monobook theme, this might be a better one to base the skin off of. Let me know what you guys think. --[[User:Hyarion|Hyarion]] 13:31, 14 October 2006 (EDT)

Tolkien Gateway > Council > New skin, cavendish


I've uploaded a new skin called cavendish (Preview) which is based on Mozilla.org. Let me know what you think, if you like it you can make it your default in your Preferences. There are a few things I'm going to try and change:

  • Move "Personal tools" below Navigation.
    • Done.
  • Fix the "Browse A B C..." area, not sure how to integrate those links yet.
    • Just removed them for now.
  • Maybe in the top yellow bar add some cursive Tengwar.
  • Move the logo to the right and down a little.
  • Make the width of everything slightly larger and maybe shrink the menu a bit.
