Amended skin not rendering

Hi

I copied the  jsavard-subblue skin and renamed the skin and made changes to the CSS stylelayout.css.  However, I can access the now custom skin but it is not showing up in the browsers at all.  The original still stands.  I have checked the paths to the images etc and these are correct.  Any other ideas?

 

ALSO, how do I access the template page coding so I can make some div tag changes in the home page?

thanks

Re: Amended skin not rendering

Give the "Creating Skins" documentation a try.

The problem you are experiencing has to do with caching. You need to configure the following web.config (or user.config) settings.

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

Once you are done skinning you will want to set all of them back to true.

The template I believe you are referring to is the layout.master file.

HTH,
Joe
