Subject Re: Fluido skin & Maven site
Date Wed, 26 Oct 2011 07:47:31 GMT
Hello,
Not sure it's possible with site.xml.
My idea was using project.properties.

Having topbar disabled by default and activate this with:
<project>
....
<properties>
  <skin.fluido.topBar.enabled>true</skin.fluido.topBar.enabled>
</properties>
...
</project>

Makes sense ?
