Stylebuilder Theme Doesn't Apply
Step One Create Theme at stylebuidler.telerik.com (use firefox)
After, creating a theme at stylebuidler.telerik.com, I unzipped it and added to the Global directory, followed by registering it in the settings/advanced/appearance/frontend settings under the name of my theme. All the css that was suppose to be pulled from my newly registered theme was added to the theme. I applied the theme to a template and it worked as expected, so far.
Add the Menu to the Template Page
The next step, I added the navigation control to the page and set the Skin and the SkinID to my theme name. I tested the page but the navigation is not taking on the custom menu theme. I checked the html and the classes rendered are "RadMenu RadMenu_Sitefinity". I can't seem to configure it to change the classes to RadMenu RadMenu_MyCustomTheme. There must be something simple I am missing.
I have had success in the past.
By the way, I am working on SF 4.1
There could be problem if you use skin files. We have bug with the skin file and we suggest that you should move the css classes in the theme styleshet. Also make sure that the theme is properly registered

I use custom skin on a tab. Is the described bug related to RadMenu only. Because if it is not then we might be able to help jwize anyhow.
I have a skin created for a tabstrip (which is working)
I have my own master.master page and added a link to my css files (I have them in ~/css/)
When you use firebug in firefox and check the styles do you see your own styles and are these overruled by SF or dont you see your css styles at all?
It would be good if you could attach a screen shot of the firebug css styles so one can see a bit more what is going on. Maybe even a screencast of your settings as well as debuging in FF. www.jing.com is free.
This will help in helping you.
Hello Markus ,
The issue is related to the skin file. The problem is not related to specific controls.
the Telerik team
If I understand you correct stylebuilder generates a RadMenu custom skin that does not work?
Because as I said I use a custom skin on a SF Navigation TabStrip and it works.
I might be off totaly but this is how I do it.
When I create a skin with Stylebuilder and download it I get a folder and a css file.
For exmplae PanelBar and PanelBar.MySkin.css (MySkin is the name of the skin I created in Sylebuilder.
I usually have a ~/css folder on my root site and include links to the PanelBar.MySkin.css in my masterpage.
Then I drag the panel bar in the backend to the page set the skin to MySkin (again the part in PanelBar.MySkin.css where MySkin is the name you gave your skin in stylebuilder when you build your skin)
And make sure to set EnableEmbededSkins to false.
I assume that this would also work if you put your skin files in your theme folder.
Unless your theme and your Skin are named the same you need to set the skin to the name PanelBar.MySkin.css (MySkin) and not to the theme name.
Hope this helps
