Hello to all. I am a newbie in python/django and I guess probably this is the reason I am facing this problem. I successfully installed askbot 0.7.39 locally and now I want to start editing askbot\skins\default\media\style\style.css and run some experiments.
What I would like to do is to directly edit this css inside my project (btw, when I installed askbot another style.css was created inside build folder) and refresh the page and see my changes applied. But nothing changes :(
The only workaround I found until now is to delete build folder, re-install and then see my changes. But this is very time consuming.
Do you have any suggestions? As I said before, I am a newbie, so probably I am missing something very fundamental here.
Thanx for any help
Please take a look at the skin documentation. To avoid the trouble please do not edit the
It is best to create a blank custom skin (do not copy any files there, but the directory structure must be the same as in the default skin) in a separate directory and in that skin edit file
extra.css. If your changes are very substantial, then instead create a file
style.less and edit that and read about using .less files in askbot.
Do not forget to run command
python manage.py collectstatic to copy the edited files to the server's static files directory.
