Hi,

I want to put an ASP.net MVC 3 application in a virtual directory with Orchard as the default site.  I am getting errors right.

Any idea if this is possible?

There is an option in web.config to prevent it from bleeding into vdirs.

Okay.... so what is the option?

When I add this option, the theme goes away.

Goes away how? Are you seeing errors? Files fail to load? What gets rendered if anything?

I'm guessing this is not from the root web.config. Well, the choice you have is between fixing the Orchard config files in subdirectories (which also ceased to inherit from the root the moement you set this option) or to fix the one in your sub-app without the option on the root.
