    See attached screenshot.

    The panel bar on the top left is properly skinned. I accomplished this by editing the Style.css file within the App_Themes/<mythemename>/Panelbar/style.css.

    The other two panel bars on that page, the bottom left and the right side, need to be able to use different skins.

    Can I simply make new directories within the App_Themes/<mythemename>/ called Panelbar2 and Panelbar3 and then, within the edit dialog of those Panelbars on the page, type in Panelbar2 and Panelbar3 for their SkinID?

    I've been trying to find more specific documentation on how to apply skins to different Panelbars but all I can find are the numerous help files (linked in just about every other skinning thread on this forum) telling you how to make a skin but very little (or not very clearly) explaining how to apply these skins WITHIN THE CMS.

    I do not have Visual Studio. I am not a .NET programmer. I wish to accomplish this from within the CMS, if at all possible.

    Hi Joel Housman,

     I suggest that you should take a look at the following article Tutorial: Creating A Custom Skin. It is not possible to create the custom skin through Sitefinity CMS. You need to use Visual Studio or other development environment.

    Best wishes,
