“Ninja Training for Web Designers”

How to Theme any CMS Using Firebug (and MediaWiki as an Example)

Friday, June 20, 2008 - Lawrence Hsu | BC

Often in my career as a web ninja, I've been asked to skin or theme open source projects to bring them in line with my clients brand. Depending on the project this can be more, or less frustrating (I'm looking at you Magento) but MediaWiki is one of the easier projects to work with because of the limited number of files and things to adjust. In this tutorial we'll go through the theming process I used to style the upcoming PSDTUTS Wiki, but the process, particularly using Firebug, could be applied to pretty much any CMS.

Firebug is good, but you might want to check out CSSEdit if you're a Mac user :]
