I am having trouble with ASP.NET Authentication in combonation with ASP.NET 2.0 Themes. It seems when I use

                  <deny users="?" />
                  <allow users="*" />

in my web.config file, all StyleSheets are disabled for all users unless they are logged in. This is obviously not the behavior I want.

you can make a new subdir , put all of the StyleSheets to the new subdir

Or just add some code to web.config like the following :

  <location path="SiteStyle.css" >
        <allow users="*"  />

I'm not sure I understand. I have more than just one stylesheet, how do I address that issue?
Also, they all are in a subdirectory in the Themes folder.

App_Themes->Default->Stylesheets is the folder.

Also, I cannot hardcode a path with ASP.NET 2.0 Themes. It is dynamic, generated based on the theme selected.

Solved it. I simply used App_Themes as the path! :o

Thanks for the help! That fixed the problem nicely.
