Yes, I'm referring to the ViTables site.

Maybe you're right and it is simple but I don't how to do some of the
wanted customizations using the skinconf.xml file. For instance I
don't know how to have two copyright lines instead of just one or how
to use the lightbox javascript only in the screenshots page or how to
show the site-info credits in every page of the site instead of just
in the welcome page. However I managed t do this customizations via
dispatcher and contracts customization. This is why I've used the
dispatcher. A secondary reason is that when reading about the
dispatcher plugin I got the sensation that it would be the recommended
customization way in the future.
