I am working on my first skin from the ground up, using a fresh install of DNN7.  This is not an upgrade but a fresh, out of the box, installation.  The other skins work fine.

When I found out why the [MENU] wasn't showing in IE 10, I tried switching to [DDRMENU] by adding this to the skin.htm file:

<div class="leftnav" style="float:left;max-width:200px;margin-left:auto;margin-right:800px;vertical-align:text-top;">[DDRMENU]</div>

which generated this in the ascx file:
<%@ Register TagPrefix="dnn" TagName="DDRMENU" Src="~/DesktopModules/DDRMenu/Menu.ascx" %>
- - - - - - - 
<dnn:DDRMENU runat="server" id="dnnDDRMENU" />

There were no errors on parsing it, but on display, oh, boy:

An error has occurred.DotNetNuke.Services.Exceptions.ModuleLoadException: Couldn't load menu style '': System.ArgumentException: Illegal characters in path. at System.IO.Path.CheckInvalidPathChars(String path, Boolean checkAdditional) at System.Security.Permissions.FileIOPermission.AddPathList(FileIOPermissionAccess access, AccessControlActions control, String[] pathListOrig, Boolean checkForDuplicates, Boolean needFullPath, Boolean copyPathList) at System.Security.Permissions.FileIOPermission.AddPathList(FileIOPermissionAccess access, String[] pathListOrig, Boolean checkForDuplicates, Boolean needFullPath, Boolean copyPathList) at System.Security.Permissions.FileIOPermission..ctor(FileIOPermissionAccess access, String path) at System.Web.HttpRequest.MapPath(VirtualPath virtualPath, VirtualPath baseVirtualDir, Boolean allowCrossAppMapping) at System.Web.HttpServerUtility.MapPath(String path) at DotNetNuke.Web.DDRMenu.TemplateEngine.TemplateDefinition.FromManifest(String manifestUrl) at DotNetNuke.Web.DDRMenu.MenuBase.Instantiate(String menuStyle) ---> System.ApplicationException: Couldn't load menu style '': System.ArgumentException: Illegal characters in path. at System.IO.Path.CheckInvalidPathChars(String path, Boolean checkAdditional) at System.Security.Permissions.FileIOPermission.AddPathList(FileIOPermissionAccess access, AccessControlActions control, String[] pathListOrig, Boolean checkForDuplicates, Boolean needFullPath, Boolean copyPathList) at System.Security.Permissions.FileIOPermission.AddPathList(FileIOPermissionAccess access, String[] pathListOrig, Boolean checkForDuplicates, Boolean needFullPath, Boolean copyPathList) at System.Security.Permissions.FileIOPermission..ctor(FileIOPermissionAccess access, String path) at System.Web.HttpRequest.MapPath(VirtualPath virtualPath, VirtualPath baseVirtualDir, Boolean allowCrossAppMapping) at System.Web.HttpServerUtility.MapPath(String path) at DotNetNuke.Web.DDRMenu.TemplateEngine.TemplateDefinition.FromManifest(String manifestUrl) at DotNetNuke.Web.DDRMenu.MenuBase.Instantiate(String menuStyle) at DotNetNuke.Web.DDRMenu.MenuBase.Instantiate(String menuStyle) at DotNetNuke.Web.DDRMenu.SkinObject.OnPreRender(EventArgs e) --- End of inner exception stack trace ---

What is the proper way to add a DDRMENU to the skin?
Thanks.

in the original aphelia skin you get these 2 lines in the ascx :
<%@ Register TagPrefix="dnn" TagName="MENU" src="~/DesktopModules/DDRMenu/Menu.ascx" %>
and
<dnn:MENU MenuStyle="Simple" runat="server"></dnn:MENU>

Seems your code missing MenuyStyle="Simple" where Simple is the name of a subfolder of the skin root containing necessary files for this style of DDRMenu.

go to \Portals\_default\Skins\Gravity to see it in action.

Take a look at :

Thanks.  From what I was reading it seemed that the DDRMENU was part of the download when I installed DNN7 vs doing the same install for an upgrade of an existing site.  Will go try this.  Thanks!
