[Updated] ASP.NET Web Optimization Framework & Cookieless Domain

In last week, one reader of this blog asked on twitter how to use Scripts.Render & Styles.Render with cookieless domain. Ahh wait... Still if you have not read my original post then please first read how to setup ASP.NET & MVC 4: Cookieless domain for bundling and static resources. Earlier in that post I have explained for both static & bundled resource but in that post I have used HTML Link & Script tag to serve bundled resource from static domain. Because Scripts.Render & Styles.Render generate Script & Link tag same as requested domain whereas in case of static domain Script & Link tag should not refer to requested domain but it should refer static domain. Here in this post we will see how to configure ASP.NET Web Optimization framework to use cookieless domain with Scripts.Render & Style.Render.
