Why am I unable to use dark.css outside of simple_xml_examples?

I'm trying to copy dark.css over to my own app as we don't have simple_xml_examples installed in our PROD environment. All I'm interested in is this single css file. I created an appserver/static directory, then copied the file into it. If I use '<form stylesheet="dark.css">' or '<form stylesheet="myapp:dark.css">' it doesn't work, however, if I use '<form stylesheet="simple_xml_exampls:dark.css">' it works on my DEV environment where that is installed.

I'm assuming I'm missing some odd reference to it in a conf file somewhere but cannot locate it. I only see that file referenced once in the simple_xml_examples directory in the Custom Layout Example : Dark page. I even copied the XML from that page into my app and tried it and it only works if I reference the app (i.e. stylesheet="simple_xml_examples:dark.css").

Anyone come across this and resolve it previously?

On Splunk 6.2.6 fwiw.

I was doing the debug/refresh method which is OK as far as clearing server cache according to that link you gave, but I guess it's not as good as the old "Restart Splunk" button. It's working now, thank you.

Besides the debug/refresh you could also use the _bump method before a restart - Good to hear it worked 😉
