Subject RE: How to create a new skin and add custom mode to it injetspeed2?
Date Wed, 04 Jan 2006 23:55:20 GMT
Hi Scott,

Sorry, I was on vacation this time and so could not reply to your mail.
I have read your documentation and it helped me a lot to create some new
skins and themes. 

I am able to change the look and feel of pages by altering the
header.vm/footer.vm file of the layout.

But I am finding it difficult to add new functionality to the layout.
For example, I want to include a search box and a submit button on the
right hand side of header image defined in header.vm (something like:
<img src="#GetPageResource('images/mqnt_banner.gif')"/>). 

How to go about it?

And how to show the results of search?

I have worked on Websphere portal and it uses jsp/stylesheets to
accomplish the above mentioned goals.

Just imagine a commercial web portal with so many links and other
functionalities. Where shall I place them? 

Regards,
Sunil

Hi Sunil,

Sorry, I was on vacation last week and not able to get to this sooner.
Please look at the initial documentation I have written,
http://portals.apache.org/jetspeed-2/guides/guide-decorators.html.  It
is
far from finished but should give you an idea what is required to build
a
decoration.
