History: Snow

Preview of version: 4

This theme was inspired by the Mtechnik_Xmas PostNuke theme, but all the graphics are original (if you look closely but not too critically, the snowflake "arms" are — somewhat overlapping — a t-i-k-i from perimeter to center), and virtually all design details are new. Credit should go to Mtechnik for the original inspiration, but this theme is sufficiently different that there is no concern about infringement, and it can be released under an LGPL license.

Flash topbar

The Snow theme will probably include a jpeg topbar image (and maybe Photoshop source), and Flash (.fla) source for the snowfall effect. The Flash header isn't being used at this site, but can be seen at Zukakakina/Snow.

The Flash file is from Flashkit.com where the description says to "use freely". I resized the .fla document, removed the button, and replaced the background image. Along with a generic .swf file, the .fla file will be included with the theme so a personalized Flash movie can be made.


This theme has CSS specified for a PhpLayers menu. The line of code to activate the menu is at around line 11 of the tiki.tpl file, but is commented out. To use the menu, delete the {* and *} tags from the beginning and end of that line and change xx to whatever menu id number you want to use.

Microsoft Internet Explorer :twisted: is having trouble with the menu as it's letting the underlying theme-change module show through. If it's a problem, modules should be arranged in the columns so that the menu doesn't overlap ones with dropdown lists, text input fields, etc.

  • Fix small problems like unwanted borders around some images.
  • Improve text styles in places like Gallery page tops.
  • Complete styling of Directory and other sections.
  • Check style of site pages that haven't been tested yet.
  • Round up source files for images and Flash.
  • Make generic header graphics.


This theme is usable but not really finished.
