How to modify site skin in Visual Studio via web project

Hi,

I've just downloaded the source for 2.3.3.4 and opened the mojoportal_mssql_only solution.  This worked fine and I was able to set up my new portal.  However, the files that get copied into data/sites/1 when the new site was created (such as everything in the /skins folder) are not visible in the mojoportal.Web project in Visual Studio because, of course, those folders and files are not referenced in the corresponding project file.  If I open mojoportal.Web as a website within Visual Studio, everything is visible, because it's just been opened from the file system.

Is there a way to make all the skins etc. visible in Visual Studio when opening the web project via the overall solution.  I'd like to be able to work on the source code and the skins in the same way, but as it stands it looks like I need to tweak skins by opening the web project as a website, and and then re-open the solution to do any code changes.  Is this right, or am I missing something??!!

Thanks,

Michael

Click the mojoPortal.Web project in Solution Explorer window, then at the top of the Solution Explorer window click the button for "Show All Files"

HTH,
