Easily customzie the CSS Design Templates for your ASP.NET 2.0 site


Great article on how to take the CSS Design templates and modify them to use ASP.NET 2.0 features and customize — easiest way to get from “I’m good at cutting code but can’t really make my site look pretty” to “wow I have a kick butt really good looking web site”


Peter does a great job of walking us throgh what it takes to ASPNETize the template… 


now who wants to take all 5 and create the ASP.NET 2.0 VSI of them?

    Just what the Doctor ordered, I have mastered the coding aspect via C# and Visual Basic. Commencement of an ASP.NET 2.0 website a few weeks ago has resulted in very very slow progress. I was beginning to wonder if I would forget the coding aspect while learing to design images CSS and so forth. The internet (hitherto) had been impossible to locate helpful information e.g. implementing a CSS rollover button easily.

    Thank you

    odd that the article page doesn’t render well in Firefox.

    Perhaps author needs a little more background in cross browser design work…..

    the site layout looks unprofessional and lame. it’s funny how many "web developers" no so little about css and creating standards compliant websites.

    karsie — which site layout are you talking about?  The samples themselves or the site that hosts them?

    Sadly within MSDN there are lots of UI constraints we have to work within and we are working hard to improve the infrastructure.  But, if it is the layouts themselves I would love to understand what you think is "lame" and "unprofessional" — we worked *very* hard to make them incredibly standards compliant (and they are).

    Has anyone determined how to modify the CSS file for the templates to make it compatible with IE 7?
