Beta 2: Theme css forbidden access

  • Beta 2: Theme css forbidden access
  • After installing 4.0 Beta 2, I created a new project and copied over all files from my custom theme that was working in Beta 1.

    I created the theme under Settings/Appearance/Frontend themes, and created 'My Theme', with the following value for Path: ~\App_Data\Sitefinity\WebsiteTemplates\MyTemplate\App_Themes\MyTheme

    Applying the theme didn't work, so I fired up Firebug to see if the css was being sent down to the browser.  Apparently there is some permissions issue:

    <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="/MyApp/App_Data/Sitefinity/WebsiteTemplates/MyTemplate/App_Themes/MyTheme/global/style.css">
    21 <h2> <i>HTTP Error 403 - Forbidden.</i> </h2></span>
    23 <hr width=100% size=1 color=silver>
    25 <b>Version Information:</b>&nbsp;Telerik Web Server 4.0.676.0

    Has something changed with security/permissions in Beta 2 that I need to address?

  • Hello Glenn,

    Thank you for using our services.

    The method of registering themes has not been changed.  From your message the only thing that seems odd is the path to the files. Can you make sure that you are using "/" instead of "\" slash?
