Create a panel on the page with a header and footer, and customised CSS.

Develop a panel like this:

[{Panel id='123' classid='blue' header='Header Text' footer='Footer Text'

...other wiki content...

This would output the following:

<script type="text/javascript" src="panel/panel.js"></script>
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="panel/panel.css">
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="panel/blue.css">

<div class="panel panel-blue" id="panel-blue-123">
  <div class="header header-blue" id="header-blue-123">Header Text</div>
  <div class="content content-blue" id="content-blue-123">
     ...other wiki content...
  <div class="footer footer-blue" id="footer-blue-123">Footer Text</div>
  • panel.css would define styles for panel-default, header-default, content-default, & footer-default
  • blue.css would define styles for panel-blue and all subcomponents (e.g. "header-blue, content-blue & footer-blue")

The content of the css files would control:

  • width/height (ideally responsive)
  • colours (text color, background color, border)
  • margins and padding
  • border
  • fonts
  • layouts (float, valign, etc)

All of these values can be overridden in the custom blue.css, and some can also be overridden by parameters in the panel. For CSS design, you can use: http://codepen.io/

Here is the contents of the panel.css, which can be copied to create different panel class styles:

panel-default {
  border: solid thin;
  float: left;
  margin: 2px;
.header-default {
  background: #D2D2D2;
  padding: 5px;
.content-default {
  padding: 5px;
.footer-default {
  background: #D2D2D2;
  padding: 5px;
