It had me very confused for quite some time. It points to where
a skin directory could be located. The skin is "found" when a
directory with the skin name is found at the location specified
by the array index. The skin directory would not necessarily
have to contain a *.tmpl file, it could have just a php file.
The array index points to a file path - which does not have to be in
a publicly accessible directory, and the array value points to a
URL - which must be publicly accessible. A lot of people
put the .tmpl and php files into the same publicly accessible
directory so the array index and the array value point to the same
place, though one is a file path and one is a URL.
Things such as css and image files must go into a publicly
accessible directory. The *.tmpl or php files do not have to
be publicly accessible and can go anywhere you choose to put
When PMWiki is searching for a skin it looks for a directory
named for the skin in the array index, and if it finds it then
it will use the files in that directory and also the files
in the matching array value url.
It helps to looks at the PMWiki source code for function
SetSkin in file scripts/skins.php.
