The Simple Skin is a customized version of the standard Compact Skin that comes with Rational Method Composer. When selected during publishing, the Simple Skin generates web pages with a very simple look and feel. Much visual distraction is removed: dividers, unnecessary section headers, and collapsible sections. For a detailed comparison of the Simple Skin to the Compact Skin, see this Microsoft PowerPoint presentation:
How to install the Simple Skin:
Download and extract the Simple.zip file that follows.
Copy the unzipped contents to the user_home\RMC\Skins\Simple directory.
Default locations for the user_home folder are as follows:
|Operating system||Default location of the user_home folder|
|Microsoft Windows Vista, 7 or 8||C:\Users\user_name|
|Microsoft Windows XP||C:\Documents and Settings\user_name|
Note that the user_home\RMC\Skins folder is created the first time that you publish or browse a configuration by using Rational Method Composer. The folder is initially populated with the skin that is used to publish or browse with. Adding the Simple folder to this location makes this new Simple Skin available in the publishing options. See publishing configurations as websites.
Details of how this skin differs from the Compact Skin are described in the enclosed readme.rtf file.
