Banner Bar

Most Apache Maven sites have a 'banner' along the top this typically contains two icons referencing the Apache project and a proejct logo as shown below.

The maven-site-plugin supports the definition of the icons using ‘bannerLeft’ and ‘bannerRight’ elements. Below is an example of these sections being defined within a site.xml file.

<project name="xxx">


The attributes of these elements should match the attributes of an <img> element within HTML. The skin will extract these values and create a floating container at the top of the page and populate images with the information provided.

If these sections are left blank then no banner is added to the page, as a minimum the banner requires a alt or src attribute for something to be displayed.
