The Hidden skin is the WebSphere Portal 22.214.171.124 default skin. This skin does not display the title bar or any decorations in the view mode of the page. In the edit mode of the page the skin displays the title bar and decorations around the portlet. This skin was created for WCM content that is exposed on external facing websites, where edit mode is not likely to be exposed to users so the title bar is hidden. However, when an admin or user that has access to edit the WCM portlet can put a page into edit mode and configure the portlet.

The Standard skin displays the portlet title bar in both edit and view mode. The title bar exposes the title of the portlet and the skin action menu. This skin imitates the default skin from past releases.

The NoSkin skin does not show the title bar or any decorations around the portlet. This skin is used if you do not need to expose the skin actions.
