    Hi,

    I've put my App_Master and App_Themes folders in the root of website instead of App_Data. The front-end works fine but the page editor in the backend doesn't render the CSS from the theme, any ideas why?

    Most likely the application can't find your CSS file. I had a similar experience even setting the App_Master and App_Themes folder inside the App_Data/WebsiteTemplates as recommended by Telerik. And putting the CSS file inside the Global folder inside the Theme's folder. I was getting a 304 error (forbidden access) to the file. That's most likely due to the fact that App_Data is a special type of folder inside a .NET project. 
    I moved the CSS file in the root of the application and linked directly to it using ~/CSSfolder/CSSfile.
    Hope this helps.

    Hi guys,

    @David
    As Ara noted in the previous reply it is recommended App_Master and App_Themes to be located in App_Data folder. Keep in mind that App_Data folder should have the neccessary write persimmons.

    I'm a little new to this, but does one create the App_Master and App_Themes folders? From what I've read so far, I thought they were included, but I do not see them under my files. Apologies if this is a common understanding.
