    I just watched the video detailing how to use the templates from the executable version of Sitefinity in a Blank Project installation. Is it possible to apply a similar technique in order to use (or rather, edit) the skins from the exe version?

    Hi John,

    It depends on for which controls you want to apply a skin. There is a standard file  - SKIN file where you can set some predefined rules. You can take a look at Controling appearance of RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX in Sitefinity

    All the best,

    Specifically, SiteMenu skins.

    Also, the article you linked to appears to assume the reader is not using the Blank Project install. Can you simply outline the proceedure for this?

    Hi John,

    Whether you will use RadMenu skins in Sitefinity does not have to do anything with the way that the project is installed , because all RadControls come with built-in styling rules embedded into the Telerik.Web.UI.dll.
    Anyway I attached all embedded skins for the RadControls.

    Kind regards,

    I understand that I can use the skins in either installation. The issues is whether I can edit the skins. And the proceedure for using custom skins is very non-intuitive, at least in 3.7.

    Thanks for attaching the skin files. I'm looking at using 4.0 RC for the project to avoid some of the issues with installation and customization of 3.7.

    Hi John,

    Styling the RadMenu control is the same for each application and it is described in the articles below


    There is no difference in Sitefinity 3.x or 4.0 if you want to style this control ( I am excluding the bugs that Sitefinity has which breaks the behavior of some other controls);
