    Hi,

    I have an application that I created using the Telerik Editor 2008 Q1. Recently I upgraded to Telerik 2008 Q3 SP2 and now the Default2006 skin is no longer working. Other skins work, was this skin removed?

    Thank you for your help.

    Hello Paul,

    You are corrct, the Default2006 and Gray skins are no longer supported since the "Futures" release of RadControls as explained below:

    However, we recommend to use the new Default skin which is very similar to the obsolete Deafult2006 skin - you can see how it looks in the demo below:

    Hi Svetlina,
    Could you please post some links that work?
    This one doesn't work at all:
    http://demos.telerik.com/aspnet-ajax-beta/editor/examples/skinning/defaultcs.aspx
    This one has a link to Full Release Notes that also doesn't work

    Hello Mark,

    I just answered you in the other forum post on the same subject. For convenience I paste my reply below:

    In our meetings and discussions about the Q1 release and the major skin-lift that we applied to all our web controls, we decided not to include the Default2006 skin but to leave it as an external one. We also modified the Default2006 skin to use the new CSS naming convention (that is now common for all RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX) and you can use it with Q1 2009 as well. More information on the subject and the skin download is available here:

    I have a major problem with this practice of changing skins.  Why on earth would you change existing skins instead of introducing new skins???  We have a solution with several websites and a LOT of telerik controls that use "Default" skins.  We recently upgraded, and now, most of our skins are broken.  We're now in the process of tracking down a fix for this via the support forum and other web resources -- and it looks like, regarldess of the solution, there's TON of work in it for us.  That' irritating and expensive. 

    Here's an idea:  INTRODUCE NEW SKINS, DON'T OBLITERATE EXISTING ONES.

    Hello Aaron,

    I am sorry to hear about the problems that you experience and I assure you that we are ready to help if needed.
    This change was made 2 years ago so I assume that you are upgrading from an earlier version of the controls. To help the customers, we converted all old (pre-q1 2009) skins for the controls, to work with the Q1 2009 release - there is a link to the editor's skins up in the thread and there are such topics in every control's forum.
