PatternSkin uses 3 style sheets (attached to PatternSkin):

When customizing your TWiki installation, you can either choose to completely rewrite all css styles, or to selectively override some styles. The latter option is by far less time consuming, but all depends on your graphical wishes.

Changing the color scheme

Have a look at PatternSkinColorSettings.

When you need lots of graphic changes: Rewriting CSS

      * Set TWIKILAYOUTURL = %PUBURLPATH%/%SYSTEMWEB%/YourNewTopic/layout.css
      * Set TWIKISTYLEURL = %PUBURLPATH%/%SYSTEMWEB%/YourNewTopic/style.css
      * Set TWIKICOLORSURL = %PUBURLPATH%/%SYSTEMWEB%/YourNewTopic/colors.css

Overriding default CSS is done with 3 variables: USERLAYOUTURL, USERSTYLEURL, USERCOLORSURL.
      * Set USERLAYOUTURL = %PUBURLPATH%/%SYSTEMWEB%/YourNewTopic/layout.css
      * Set USERSTYLEURL = %PUBURLPATH%/%SYSTEMWEB%/YourNewTopic/style.css
      * Set USERCOLORSURL = %PUBURLPATH%/%SYSTEMWEB%/YourNewTopic/colors.css
 
      * Set USERSTYLEURL = %PUBURLPATH%/%SYSTEMWEB%/YourNewTopic/style.css
 

Instead of setting these variables in TWiki.TWikiPreferences, you can set these in your home topic, or in any other topic. Setting style URL variables in:

User styles are always loaded after TWiki styles.

The rest of this topic shows examples of small CSS changes.
