What about some docu of css using in pier. I've browsed some code of pier searching
for binding css from local file-system. There was nothing that can change the width of
edit-field of some contents. So I was playing around with the css itself and saw changing
the css works for my wishes.
I think for newbies of pier like me the docu of css used in pier is the best thing getting
the own look and feel with some usefull content.

What I would like to find (and maybe it's out there, but I
find it) is how to create a totally new "website". And, make it
only readable by the general public (e.g when starting Pier, it
just starts up and exposes everything.) Note that I'm not very
familiar with web technology.
If you load 'Pier-Security' from Squeak map you can easily make your
web-site read only for public. With the 'Unix Permission' package you
need to remove all the permission except the one for the view from
the root directory of 'others' and assign the admin as 'owner' and
The information to create a totally new website seems to be lacking
in the documentation - or I just haven't found it or completely by-
passed it. Or I'm just a confused (which is totally possible)
Yes, there is a lack of documentation :-/
What is a typical way of creating a website from existing seaside
or pier classes? What the heck do I subclass? Or do I subclass?
There are a lot of Pier classes, and I'm a bit confused. Maybe the
best thing for me to do is create a Seaside app and not subclass Pier?
What I did for my website was just to change the style sheet, to edit
the page 'environment' and to write some content. For most users
there is probably no need to write any code.
I will try and see if we can come up with something ready for Seaside-
Hosting, so that people can only press a button and then they get a
ready made and nicely hosted Pier system running. For now this is
just an idea, but if I find some time I will try to prepare
SmallWiki, Magritte, Pier and Related Tools ...
