Hi All very excited about this app
But when building DNN skins how do I keep only the standard panes ie top, left, content, right, bottom
if i could get his working would consider purchasing
They only way I know would be to edit the Page.ascx file located in the skin folder. You would need to remove the tags for the panes that you do not wish to be in your skin.
If you are comfortable doing this then it should not be a problem for you. If you are not, give it a try anway, what have you got to loose. Just make a backup copy of the file, and if you mess the skin up, just replace your page.ascx file with the backed up one, and you are back to where you were befor you started.
Yes I know that using Artisteer can be frustrating. I for one have created DNN skins from scratch using VisualStudio, and it can be very time consuming. So I am grateful to have a GUI design application such as Artisteer where I can quickly generate a base template for my skins, and then take them into VS to modify them to my heart’s content. That is why I choose to buy the app. Artisteer is not for everyone, and it could be better, but considering everything it can do, I am glad I have it.
I guess the question arises, since all of the panes are div tags, and do not show up unless you place a module in them, why the need to delete all of the panes except the old core panes? It seems to me they only add control to the layout of the page, and really don’t get in the way.
Don't get me wrong it's a great app...but is seems to be trying to be all things to all people.
Perhaps they could offer the option of how many panes to includ into the final skin.
Many people might think that it's a design and post then find it's not luckily I always test on my localhost before posting just to see how it looks first
I'll have to think about the cost first as it's still a fair investment, if you don't have a lot of skins to make.
It's high on my list to buy though, just it takes a lot to get used to the editing after
2/18/2012: Ladies and gentlemen... we found a bug in DNN4 that causes the pull-down menus on modules to appear off-screen.
After making a change to one little file distrbuted as part of DNN4, the pull-down menus now display in the proper place.
The fix is described at
This fix was provided by one of the highly intelligent Engineers at Artisteer. I just didn't want the solution to be lost in history.
