Use CSS code to customize interface

If Theme Color settings do not fully meet your visual requirements, you can enter your custom Cascading Style Sheet (CSS) code in the CSS Editor area to override the default styling.

Best practices of customizing with CSS Editor

Use CSS code to customize the color and font styling. Avoid changing the layouts because this may cause issues during upgrades.

When the CSS code modifies colors defined in the Theme Color area, it overrides the settings configured in the Theme Color area.

Example

The following CSS code changes section heading color as follows:

Copy code
.section-title-row {
  background-color:#146693;
}
 
.section-title-row h2{
   color:#fff ;
}
 
.subheader-small, .subheader{
   background-color:#146693 ;
   color:#fff ;
}

Revert back to default

To revert back to the default CSS styling, at the bottom of the CSS Editor area, click Restore to Default. This action clears the code you entered in the CSS Editor area.

  4. Select the image file to be used as the new corporate logo.
