Hello DNN skinners,

I used to create skins for DNN 7. To add javascript and css files i use the following lines of code:

<dnn:DnnCssInclude runat="server" FilePath="css/styles.css" PathNameAlias="SkinPath" />
<dnn:DnnJsInclude runat="server" FilePath="js/javascript.js" PathNameAlias="SkinPath" />

However; these lines do not work in DNN8. What are my options to add these files in DNN 8?
I heard a lot about the dynamic content creator in DNN8 as well. This module was found in the beta version of dnn 8 but is nowhere in my current installation. Does anyone know where i can download this module?

Thanks in advance,

DCC was removed from DNN8.0.0, should be included in 8.1 I think

Not sure why the js and css includes don't work, normally they should I think..

'However; these lines do not work in DNN8"

This statement can mean anything. What are the symptoms? Error messages? What is broken? Check the html source and the actual file location and compare.

My bad, I thought that DNN controls where removed in DNN 8. It was a problem with my export. Thanks Timo, looking forward to this update!
