What .Skin files are used in the project?

It appears none are used any longer, should they be removed?

They are used... the loading images, rss, forums image... all from skins. They are used a lot, actually.

Trying to get up to speed on changes. Can you give me an example of one skin that is used?

Every .skin file I have found reference the old \images folder files which all but 4 have been removed.
If the Image.skin is referenced the image links would not be valid.


<asp:Image runat="server" SkinID="rss" ImageUrl="images/rss.png" AlternateText="rss-img" CssClass="border-top-width: 0px; border-left-width: 0px; float: right; border-bottom-width: 0px; border-right-width: 0px; padding-top: 10px;" />

<asp:Image runat="server" SkinID="ImageThumbNail" ImageUrl="images/news.jpg" CssClass="photo" BorderWidth="1" />
<asp:Image runat="server" SkinID="loading" ImageUrl="images/loading.gif" style="text-align:center;" />
<asp:Image runat="server" skinID="print" ImageUrl="images/print.png" AlternateText="print" />
<asp:Image runat="server" SkinID="download" AlternateText="Download" ImageUrl="images/icondownloadevent.gif" width="15" height="26" />
<asp:Image runat="server" SkinID="preview" CssClass="picture" BorderWidth="1" ImageUrl="images/nophoto.gif" />


Here is the Forum.skin (all ImageUrl invalid)

Do the skins use realitive url's?
Could or have they been replaced by the style sheets?

I noticed the 4 threadlock images appear in 3 image folders, both theme\image folders and the \image folder.
