I am trying to include some of my JS and CSS Files in the ResourceManifest, but I am running into quite some issue:

THis is how my ResourceManifest.cs looks like:
using Orchard.UI.Resources;

namespace Themes.TheClubWTheme 
  public class ResourceManifest : IResourceManifestProvider
    public void BuildManifest(ResourceManifestBuilder builder)

     var manifest = builder.Add();


and in the Layout.cshtml, I have following:


Whenever I try to run the code, I'm getting following error:

A 'script' named 'FoundationScript' could not be found.

any ideas?

Your theme needs to be a in a separate project with a separate .csproj file if you want to use code other than just Razor files. Just like any other module, but with Theme.txt instead of Module.txt manifest.

Its actually inside the Themes Folder (generated with the command-line tool).

That's exactly the reason.

You should use the /CreateProject switch when generating a theme - codegen theme YourThemeName /CreateProject:true.
Re-run the command, put all your files under the newly created project and you're good.

Have you added it to your solution and rebuilt from Visual Studio? If you haven't, it won't work.

I see, thank you! :)
Still trying to adjust from my Rails Background to the .NET Stuff.

It seems that it finally loads up my ResourceManifest.cs - but now it tells me following - complaining about a missing implementation, while I actually do have it in the code.

'TheClubWTheme.ResourceManifest' does not implement interface member 'Orchard.UI.Resources.IResourceManifestProvider.BuildManifests(Orchard.UI.Resources.ResourceManifestBuilder)' C:\Orchard.Source\src\Orchard.Web\Themes\TheClubWTheme\ResourceManifest.cs

Edit: Just noticed the Typo.Let's see how that works now.

Np, glad I could help:)

Seems like you have a typo - the method is BuildManifests, not BuildManifest.

Yep - just noticed that at the same time, by actually looking at your Bootstrap Theme.

Thank you, it works perfectly fine now :)
