Additional layout layers feature

Since Tiki 2 or so, there has been an extra div around module boxes, with the class box-shadow. Now in Tiki 3.0 there are more such divs in tiki.tpl, for adding additional styling, as follows, and a switch to activate them all:

  • div id="main-shadow"
Just outside div="main" (surrounds the whole visible page)

  • div id="header-shadow"
Just outside div id="header" (surrounds the page header and its logo, site title, top menu, etc.)

  • div id="middle-shadow"
Just outside div id="middle" (surrounds the middle of the page containing the left, center and right columns)

  • div id="tiki-center-shadow"
Just outside div id="tiki-center" (surrounds the center-column content)

  • div id="footer-shadow"
Just outside div id="footer" (surrounds the footer (bottom bar) area

These divs are activated to be styled by checking|ticking the checkbox on the Look and Feel admin page. They are then ready to receive styling from themes that recognize them.

Activating this option will have a global effect (the site's templates/tiki.tpl file will present the additional divs), but presumably they are ignored if a theme doesn't specify anything for the above selectors.

chibaguy, 06:31 GMT, Thu 16 of May, 2013: Veronica, that star has been eclipsed many times, with Tiki 11.o now soon to rise. ;-)
veronicamarsh, 08:33 GMT, Sun 12 of May, 2013: tikiwiki 2.0 is the star of this weekend. Just follow as we add it to SM dev.
chibaguy, 02:57 GMT, Thu 04 of Oct, 2012: This is a late reply, but, for the record, the Milkyway theme (following the original design) doesn't have a search form in the top bar. You can put one at the top of a side column, etc. instead.
andi6803, 12:20 GMT, Tue 18 of Oct, 2011: I use tiki 6v4 with the Milkyway theme. But it's not possible to switch on the search bar at the top bar. With other themes it works.
