    Hi all,
    I just installed SiteFinity standard 3.6. I installed the sample site using the most advanced template (the company - enterprise one). It is using a theme called Emerald-Blue.

    I am using the dashboard. I go to the Pages section and I see that I can edit any page. While doing that I can change the theme. I also see that I can edit the Templates.

    What I dont see is a way to edit themes. I can SWITCH themes, but I dont have an editor for themes. The Files section doesnt have edit abilities, just move/rename/copy/delete.

    Does SiteFinity have a editor for themes, or do I need to make them by hand (or download them)? While I, the developer, can make themes, my clients probably lack the ability to do so, so it would be nice if there was an equivalent to the nice editors that are available for pages and templates.

    Hello Sean,

    Sitefinity does not provide an editor for themes. But you could modify the themes through Visual Studio. All the themes are available under ~/App_Themes folder in your Sitefinity-managed Web site:

    1. Launch Microsoft Visual Studio.
    2. Select File > Open > Web Site.
    3. Select File System from the choices on the left.
    4. Browse to the folder where your site is and click Open.
    5. In the Solution Explorer, right-click the App_Themes folder and open the .css file of the theme you need to change.

    For details please refer to the following article: ASP.NET Themes and Skins

    Kind regards,
    the Telerik team
