The DotNetNuke Skinning Toolkit is an additional resource website that has been created by DNN Creative Magazine as issue 10 of the magazine.
The Skinning Toolkit demonstrates all of the skin classes within DotNetNuke so that you can easily view, search and learn how to style the various elements within a DotNetNuke skin.
The toolkit also provides the details you need to prevent un-explained / un-wanted styling appearing in your skin designs. These two articles develop on the information provided in the Skinning Toolkit and will help to give you further understanding for creating your own DotNetNuke skins.
Reducing the DotNetNuke CSS file sizes
Introduction to CSS and inheritance in DotNetNuke skins
You can also download the entire contents of the Skinning Toolkit as a 98 page PDF file.
The PDF version of the Skinning Toolkit makes it much easier to read, search, print and quickly access the content that you require. You can download the PDF from here: DotNetNuke Skinning Toolkit PDF
(Note: The skinning toolkit PDF is only available as a separate purchase, but you can view the content for free from: DotNetNuke Skinning Toolkit - It was created as a separate website so that all of the DNN community can access the content for free)
