I created some TWiki screenshots for WikiMatrix, http://www.wikimatrix.org/show/TWiki. Looking at the edit screen screenshot, it occured to me that a lot of edit space can be regained by:

  1. Moving the topic title next to the TWiki icon
    • We've tried that for configure, but it doesn't look right. -- AC
  2. Making the left & right margins more narrow.
    • Making it more narrow will make it look crowded as well. -- AC

  • Using a small version logo.
  • For screenshots, make your font smaller, especially in Firefox.
  • Make the edit box higher.


I raised this enhancement request for better edit experience, not for better screenshots. smile

Compare before and simulated after. There is a big difference in screen estate, and it does not look crowded to me.

BTW, the WysiwygPlugin makes good use of the screen real estate.

-- PTh

For this very same reason I removed the TWiki Logo from the edit page. It is a pain having to scroll down because of a logo on the top.

I simply removed %TMPL:P{"simplewikilogo"}% from twiki.pattern.tmpl.


Good suggestion to remove the logo altogether.

Related to margins: I do strive for some consistency across screens.


Hmm, I think for branding it is good to keep the logo.

-- PTh

I am sorry. Give some, take some smile

I have removed the logo AND the borders. In the end I found usability more important than consistency or branding.

Additionally, I have implemented arrow buttons to change the textarea height. And buttons to set the font style to mono and natural space.
