Winter is a minimalist template for TNG that is suitable for TNG test sites or even for a live site where the user wants an uncluttered home page with easy-to-use links to every part of the website. It is fully integrated into TNG's template setup screen.
As the name suggests, the home page uses only white, gray and black. Other more colorful "seasons" using the same or similar structures can be easily created.
Winter is an experiment.
The website title is an image created on the fly from text entered into the template setup. The image uses Old Script font to give it a bit of an antique look, but other TrueType fonts could be used as well.
Winter is self installing. Unzip and Drop the template90 folder into your templates directory and navigate to it with your browser. In just a second or two you will be returned to your home page and the template will be installed in TNG. Go to the TNG Admin Setup page and under Template settings, select template90, set the website title and the site's main photo (see choices below), and save it. The is no uninstaller. To uninstall it, delete template90 from your templates directory and remove the t90 entries from your templateconfig.php.
Winter checks to see if Bryan Larson's Bot-Trap mod is installed and provides a built-in, invisible link inside the body element. The Winter template link will validate and will not increase the height of page headers. Just install the Bot-trap mod, then manually remove the link from meta.php. The Winter template will take care of the rest. This is a topmenu.php technique that can be used in your other templates if you choose to modify them.
