aspx pages in the application and now the style sheets are not working. the

Make sure that any css files are in the App_Themes/<theme namefolder.

Hi Jerry,

As for the ASP.NET application, how did you originally reference those css
style sheets? Are you using the Theme feature to bind the stylesheets(put
them in Theme folder and let them be linked automatically)?

By default, style sheets under Theme folder will be linked into page(that
has applied the certain Theme) automatically. To verify this, you can
visit the certain page(that doesn show style corrrectly) and open its html
source in client browser to see whether the style sheet link is displayed
in the client source.

Also, have you checked the aspx page template to see whether there is any
difference between the original one?

Sincerely,

Steven Cheng

Thank you for the replys.

The web.config file had two entries like:
<location path="styles.css">
<system.web>
<authorization>
<allow users="*"/>
</authorization>
</system.web>
</location>
On the development machine it worked OK but when I droped this web.config
file on another server it did not. It did not like duplicate location path
entries for the same file. Also FYI if the same css file is in the main
directory and in the App_Themes/theme directory it causes problems.

Thank you for your help.

Thanks for your reply Jerry,

Yes, the further information you provided is very important. That remind me
of the potentitial cause from forms authentication protection on pages or
resource in the application.

So you're using Forms authentication, and by default deny user="?",
correct? Is the application hosted in IIS on both machine? Normally asp.net
forms authenticaction won't affect those static files(such as css ,
jscript...) because only those ASP.NET documents(aspx, ascx ..) will be
forwarded to ASP.NET runtime for processing. However, you can check on the
server to see whether the IIS extention mapping has bee changed that those
static files will also be processed by ASP.NET runtime.

For testing , you can also first turn off forms authentication protection
on all page(set allow users="*") to see whether the style sheet can be
accessed correctly. Also, since those Theme files are for displaying
only, I suggest you consider add a rule (through <location) to allow all
users access for the Theme folder. e.g.

<location path="App_Themes">
<system.web>
<authorization>
<allow users="*"/>
</authorization>
</system.web>
</location>
If you have any other findings, welcome to post here.

Sincerely,

Steven Cheng
