Overview

A skin is a set of graphics that determines the appearance of a whole page...a visual wrapper for the content.   A container is a set of graphics that determine the appearance of  just a module.....in other words,  a skin for a module.    

You can change from one container to another on the Settings page for any module.

In this example, I want to change from the DNN-Blue container with a light blue background to one with a white background.   Both of these containers are included in the default DNN4 installation. 

1.   Log in as Admin and go to the page with the module you want to change.
