Hi jak,

Thank you for your helpful tips and I take your point about observing case.

I have now updated helloworld to show a slideshow.

When I put the following line in module_slideshow/templates/

<% require css(module_slideshow/css/slideshow.css) %>

the slideshow becomes styled.

However when I comment out this control structure and instead put the following code in module_slideshow/code/Slideshow.php and refresh both the database and page


class Slideshow extends Page {

class Slideshow_Controller extends Page_Controller {
public function init() {

the page loses styling.

Unfortunately replacing the Requirements line with

Requirements::themedCSS("slideshow", "module_slideshow");

makes no difference.
