I am very new in App_Themes and .skin-files. In fact, I have no idea, where I can nodify the themes-files to get a result like that (the themes-generator doesnt support it - and I think, that it should be possible):

Can someone tell me, in which file (css, skin or something?) I can define the position of the containers? and how they are named?

 

Tnx,
Stefan.

In CSS-speak, they containers are 'divs'.  The main CSS file to be edited would be PageLayout.css and maybe Navigation.css (in the relevant Themes folder).  I'd suggest starting to just make changes to the header etc by editing the above files to get the hang of it - it's very easy to just make the header narrower, deeper, change the background image etc, change the title justification etc.

The Skin.skin may also need to be edited - that is a bit like a master page to tie in CSS with the various ASP.NET elements used by the site - it associates specific controls with CSS divs.

HTH,

FYI, there is an article on "how to create a new theme for Mwpsk" at this link...
