Switching between skins - modules do not map to correct containers

    I have two skins with the exact same content layout. Yet when I switch from one to the other, the modules all get lumped into one space, rather than mapping to their corresponding space.

    For example, there's a section called "RowEightGrid4Pane1" on both skins. If I put a module in that section on my OLD skin, then switch to the new skin, the module will have moved (along with all other moduels) to the topmost section of the page, the BannerPane. Anyone have any idea why?

      Hmm, that is weird. I assume you are on DNN 9?
      As you probably know the mapping is done with the name of the Pane.
      Did you check in the ascx if they are exactly the same? (the ID of the pane is it's name)
      Also; normally the modules of which the Pane cannot be found should be moved to the pane named "ContentPane", not a bannerpane.

        I have to check the .ascx. Perhaps there is some slight difference in the actual wording in there. And yes, this is DNN 932.
