A Lovely Wiki

I took some time over the weekend to spruce up my newly updated ScrewTurn Wiki at Sueetie.com.  I’ve been planning on adding a good bit of new content now that Gummy Bear is alive and I wanted something pretty to look at.  Ask any of my clients and they’ll tell you that before I do any serious coding I first need some pretty to look at.  Those are the rules.

I also wanted more document real estate, so the first thing I did was get rid of the sidebar and move the navigation links to the top of the content area. Search is on its own page. The old home page on the left, the new is on the right.

A nice navigation menu is in its new location showing the cool wiki features. Some day I’ll figure out what "Navigation Paths" are and play with namespaces. 


More breathing space now on the All Pages listing.

The same search results with the old layout and the new.  Much nicer.

But the most important update was the Screwturn Wiki Editor.  It’s difficult to see the differences, but I’m happy with it and that’s all that matters. No more Courier font in the editor text area.  I hate Courier. And better looking buttons. I’m big on buttons.

I also styled the popup windows, like the Image Selector window shown here.  What, you didn’t know ScrewTurn Wiki had an Image Selector window?  Pretty cool, eh?  There’s more you’ll find out about ScrewTurn Wiki now that we’ve got some pretty on the page.
