Hi,

I am going to develop two language site, using DNN localization facility. 
I need to use two different skins for each language. 

This is because English and Arabic cannot use the same skin.
First one is LTR (left to right) and later is RTL (right to left) design. 

When I changed skin for English, the skin for Arabic also got changed. 

Please tell me the possible ways to achieve the same. 

Regards,
Selva

If the ascx is the same for both and the difference is only CSS you can create one skin and load a different stylesheet uising our StyleHelper Skin Object.
It can load a different CSS fiel for RTL or LTR.

(Skin object attribute: IfTextDir="ltr")

Hi,

 

Thanks for your effort. 

 

But the things are different here for Arabic. 

 

Not only the contents to be made RTL (right to left) also all the modules to be moved from Right to Left.

 

See the sample site:

English: http://www.aramco.com/en/home.html 

Arabic: http://www.aramco.com/ar/home.html

Regards,

Selva.

I know, but I would also do that with CSS and not by moving the modules for every page.
But I guess if you already did that it's not easy to change it back.

I did not move the modules in any page.
I am looking to do the same by some means.

So you are saying that it is possible to move right to left alignment completely using the module 'StyleHelper Skin Object'.
Am I right?
