    Hi there,

    Having the themes and such in the App_Data folder basically means that Skin files won't work doesn't it?

    Regards,
    Jacques

    Hi J,

    There is a bug you can review in PITS concerning skins being successfully applied. The custom skins in your theme`s folder will not work. To style your theme use the css files in the Global folder, additional css referenced in the master page, or CSS widget. You can use the built in skins to style widgets without problems.

    Kind regards,

    I am experiencing the same issue with a new built in 4.2, which is completely not the case with a site that was converted from 3.7 SP4.  So where in the directory structure might I find the "Global" folder ... or how do I access it in order to import a new skin file for the navigation?

    Thanks,
    Jason

    Hello Jason,

    The Global directory is a part of the theme. You can create and register a theme following the documentation.
    Custom skins will not be applied to the navigation widget due to the bug mentioned in my previous post. The bug fix is sheduled for Q3 release.
