Adding new icons and changing site background

Hy all,

I need one small help with my new web project.

1. I'm using new skin based on dcarter-orangesunset skin and I would like to change that gray background (where data is shown) into some other color but I can't find that instruction in css.

2. How can I add new skin in Feature Instance Settings? I'v downloaded some new gif icons into skin folder of my site but that icons our not available to choose from predefined icons.

Please help.

Put the icons in the \Data\SiteImages\FeatureIcons directory.

Thanks Joe.

And what about changing background color??? Any ideas?

Here is example what I want to change: you can see that this page has blue background and we are writing in data field which is white. I want to change that on my mojo. Please help...

Re: Adding new icons and changing site background

You should be able to find the colors in the stylecolors.css file. When troubleshooting any web development, I use FireFox with the FireBug AddOn. FireBug allows you to select any element on a site and view/edit it's properties. When working with skins in mojoPortal, I make sure to set the following in my user.config:

<add key="CombineCSS" value="false" />
<add key="MinifyCSS" value="false" />

After adding those to your user.config, open and save the web.config file to force your application to re-read it and this will cause the user.config to re-read.

You may also want to consult the Creating Skins documentation.

A quick look at the skin you asked about showed me that the colors your want to change are #545454 and #414141.

HTH,
Joe D.
