adding to layout.Master

Hi

I now have managed to get the amended skin to show up in the browser on my local test server.  Now my problem is that I would like to add a horizontal navigation in the headerwrapper area but I am not sure how to add the asp script in the Layout.Master.  I have the CSS inserted into the stylelayout.css but now I need it to show up in the master.  Can someone please give me some code to place into the file as I am no asp programmer.  I don't want to start on another skin as I have spent time amending the current one.

thanks very much.

ALSO, how do I get rid of the "CSShandler" as I would like to use firebug to show up which tags are in which stylesheet.

Cheers

Re: adding to layout.Master

Which skin did you start out with? There are many skins (most of them in fact) that have horizontal navigation, all you need to do is copy the SiteMenu code from the layout.master of one of those skins.

The "Understand the Layou.Master file" documentation provides all kinds of good information for modifying your layout.master. If you are wanting second-level pages to be in a horizontal menu, take a look at the the "Multiple Horizontal Menus" documentation.

The CSShandler is the result of the combining all the stylesheets, you can read about that in the Skin Changes documentation. Basically you need to set the CombineCSS key in your web.config or user.config to false.

HTH,
Joe

Thanks.

I ended up using another template and currently all seems to be OK. The template is "vitruvius_clean".  I have used the master.layout from the  jsavard-subblue template.  Onwards and upwards. I hope I won't come across any other issues, but can't guarantee that you won't hear from me again.  ;-D

cheers
