Please show me the way to apply Skin

Hello Joe, hello everybody

I'm not good at design, i already follow Joe's instruction at http://www.mojoportal.com/creating-skins-from-artisteer-html-templates.aspx

Here is my problem :

I already design a template as you can see at this : http://www.mediafire.com/?kbrimw6rdpto763

But when I apply to my site- mojoPortal, it can not be applied completely. You can see it here : http://www.mediafire.com/?5nm23pbcx54bztb

Link above is fresh- no virus or  trojan. They are my screen shots. Don't worry!

Please help  me in solving this. Many thanks!

Regards

Pasha

Re: Please show me the way to apply Skin

I'm not sure what's causing the problem with the tabs, but the background stopping partway down can be fixed by copying the background* selectors (background-color, background-image, etc.) from the body {} element in style.css to the body.pagebody {} element in style-artisteer-overrides.css. This is covered in step 7 on the Creating Skins from Artisteer HTML Templates document.

Unfortunately, the Artisteer skinning still isn't an exact science. We highly recommend that you install the Firebug Firefox/Chrome extension to enable you to inspect individual elements to determine where the style is coming from (or not coming from, as the case may be). Also, be sure to set the following keys in your user.config file while you're working on skins, and set them all back to true once you are in production.

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

Finally, keep in mind that if you are using Artisteer 3, the skinning document has not yet been revised for that version, as it's not completely finalized yet. Hope that helps.

Re: Please show me the way to apply Skin

Yes, Thanks Jamie so much for your reply! It works like a charm but everything still does not apply completely. Now i'm working on it! Hope mojoTeam can release the skinning document for Artisteer v3 soon
