Re: skins

Hey Joe, I only use that setting only when working with Firebug, so I can identify which CSS file needs to be changed. Without it, the source file always shows up in Firebug as something like https://[site]/csshandler.ashx?skin=[skinname]&s=1&v=2.3.8.6&sv=aa729a89-cd21-4f1d-b3fe-fec1b82eca8d, which isn't really helpful in locating the file that needs to be edited. Is there some other way to get the original CSS source filename to show up?

Thanks,

Jamie

Re: skins

If MinifyCss is false I can usually figure out pretty easily from style.config which file a particular css rule is coming from.

Best,

Joe

Re: skins

I have looked ever where and for some reason I can not find the user.config files location

Re: skins

We don't ship a user.config file because we don't want to overwrite it during upgrades. We ship a file named user.config.sample in the root of the web that can be re-named to user.config. In fact if mojoPortal is installed by the web platform installer it automatically renames this file and puts the database connection string there.

If you do manually rename the file then you need to copy your database connection string from web.config into user.config

​user.config can override settings from the <appSettings section of web.config, that is the only thing it can do, no other parts of web.config can be added to user.config.

Hope that helps,

Joe

Re: skins

modifications to user.config are not automatically detected, so whenever you edit it you need to then touch web.config, ie type a space in it and save.

Re: skins

Think I figured most of it out. Jamie I like those add keys you suggested it made finding them in the css sheet easier with what line its on etc.
