    Hi,

    I've downloaded Sitefinity (Community Edition, 3.7) and we're setting up a site as part of our evaluation (jnrcs.org).

    Installation is dead beat simple, and creating a master page on VS is easy, but for the life of me, and I have struggled with this now for a few hours, I can't figure out how to properly map/link stylesheets and images!

    Applying the theme by its name, after uploading it to the App_Themes folder is not enough, ditto the images.

    I'm stumped.

    TIA

    Hi Steve Mustafa,

    In your Theme folder you can create stylesheet that gets the images from an folder - say images located on the same level as the stylesheet

    p.logo
    {
        background: transparent url(img/logo.gif) no-repeat 0 0;
        color: #fff;
    }

    If you are referencing the images from the master page you can use the code below

    <img src="~/Images/...." runat="server" alt="" />

    See, the problem is having the master page reference the stylesheet correctly.  I've tried uploading it to the App_Themes folder and even in an act of desperation, created a new folder (root level) and placed it there and referenced it directly. Still no go.

    [Edit]

    As is typical of development on any platform, after having sent out my pleas for help, it magically works perfectly on the next thing I try!

    Many thanks Ivan for helping out.
