    Is there, or are there plans to create, a tool to migrate DNN skins to work with SiteFinity? We host web sites through DNN but are not happy with the lack of quality with the DNN releases so would consider SiteFinity but we do like the plethera of DNN skins that are available in the marketplace for our customers to choose from.

    Thank you for contacting us.
    We haven't planned such feature yet, but we will definitely think for it. I will propose it for discussion. On a side note, we are working on a market place already, which will have a section for skins and templates. 

    Best wishes,

    I would like to second the request for guidelines and recommendations on converting from a Dotnetnuke site to a Sitefinity site. If either Telerik or anybody else has experience and/or suggestions to share, please contribute them to the forums.

    There are two general issues here:

    (1) Converting a Dotnetnuke skin to theming and/or skinning appropriate for Sitefinity.

    (2) Converting and migrating the Dotnetnuke site content to format appropriate for Sitefinity.

    So anybody with any experience that they are willing to share here on this forum, please contribute. Thanks.

    Artisteer ( has this cool piece of software that alow you to create really good looking websites. It can generate files for Joomla, wordpress, standard html, and dotnetnuke also. A Sitefinity plug-in would be great and would give SF alot of visibility. Imagine, create and use!!!

    Thank you for your suggestions.

    We do have a visual style builder for the RadControls from the ASP.NET AJAX suite, which allows you to build skins for them. Since Sitefinity ships with the complete suite, you can create skins for them in the style builder and then use the controls in your sites. As for building themes and templates visually we have been thinking about this before and and came to the conclusion that this is something very nice to get incorporated in Sitefinity.

    For building skins for the RadControls, please take a look at the Telerik Visual Style Builder. It is a free on-line tool and you will not need to install it.
