    After the great post of Daniel with the link to yaml(de)-framework css, I think that is necessary integrate in the future Templates one structure such this one in css linked files. I have worked with TIU site template and is very difficult to understand the css files in only one mixed and customized file.

    Thanks very much to Daniel for this information and the link.

    Hi Pierre,

    If I understand correctly you want to know how you could load external CSS files in the News module RadEditor. If it is so then you should display "Apply Css Class" dropdown through the ~/Sitefinity/Admin/ControlTemplates/News/ToolsFile.xml file:

    tools name="DropdownToolbar" dockable="true">
    tool name="ApplyClass" enabled="true"/>

    After that you should modify
    ~/Sitefinity/Admin/ControlTemplates/News/ControlPanelEdit.ascx        and
    files to populate the necessary external CSS files. Thanks to the CssFiles property, you can specify a string array of CSS files. For example:


    As for your suggestion I can assure you that we will discuss it for one of the upcoming releases.

    Hope this helps.

    I insist a new organization of CSS files in Sitefinity is need for all modules. Each new module need a default css file with all fixes for navigators and minimal configuration. No more files such TIU sample site all in one css file. Wish : when the users pick an addControl the default css file is picked with or linked in the masterpage by user .

    I'm worked few days to obtain a pour result for the news module without yours css files in background. I'm worked in Dreamweaver add the css files, add the tags, change the ../App or ../.. for links go to VS2005 Refrech go  IE and after to Firefox come-back, firebug, clean cache and new comeback and ever and ever for days. How to explain to my clients thats is easy?.  Yes, is not a Sitefinity problem, but we need more help to obtain a nice result.

    Anyone have more solutions to work with css files and others experiences.
    Anyone have a css files for modules?.Sorry for my poor english.

    Best regards
