Upgraded to 7.1 - need help styling vertical menus

  • Upgraded to 7.1 - need help styling vertical menus
  • 46a44f1e-37c1-6deb-a958-ff0000446526_menu.jpg
    We just migrated our site from a very old version of Sitefinity to 7.1 and I am struggling with one of the menus.

    The vertical menu on the side of this page needs to be styled:
    dev-live.inkforce.net/Core-Solutions.aspx

    It appears the style sheet is located externally on a telerik server
    perhaps?   I am not sure where to edit the menu to look the way I want
    it to. I did find a variety of tutorials here:
    www.telerik.com/.../menu-design-smart-tag.html
    www.telerik.com/.../tabstrip-appearance-custom-skin.html
    www.telerik.com/.../menu-skins.html

    But I am not able to locate any of style sheets or settings anywhere.

    How would I go about adjusting the size/styling of this menu?
    I have attached an image with the menu I am trying to customize.
    Thanks,
    Tom

    Thank you - I was aware of this page and found it to be helpful

    I have already styled the menu. Although the menus are working well enough in Chrome and Firefox for us to launch, they continue to be incorrect in IE so we are not able to go live with the dev site on time as we had hoped.

    I have attached screen shots. If you open up this page in chrome/firefox you will see the  menus are perfect.

    dev-live.inkforce.net/Core-Solutions.aspx

    In IE the menu continues to be too narrow.

    Please advise.

  • Hi 

    I upgraded my application to v7.3 but I am getting error somewhere else. When I visit any page that has Sitefinity Event Calendar on it is throwing an errorTelerik.Web.UI. RadWindowManager with ID= ‘RadWindowManager‘was unable to find embedded skin with name Sitefinity. Please, make sure that you spelled the skin name correctly, or if you want to use a custom skin, set EnableEmbeddedSkins=false.To solve this I have added EnableEmbeddedSkins=”false”  to<telerik:RadWindowManager id="radWindowManager" runat="server" Modal="True" Skin="Sitefinity">Line and it worked on development machine, staging server but giving error on production server as belowCannot create an object of type ‘System.Boolean’ from its string representation “false” for “EnableEmbeddedSkins” property.I am not able to work around this. Please suggest a solution.

    Thanks.

  • Hi Vakeel,

    The "Sitefinity" skin was removed from the Telerik.Web.UI assembly; you can use the "Default" skin as a replacement. You will need to update all of your templates that have a reference to this skin, and also verify in your web.config file that EnableEmbeddedSkins is set to false.

    The following articles can be of use for more information:

    I hope this helps.
