Cascading Style Sheets (CSS)
This article is useful for: Community Administrators.
What is this?
In web development, Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) is a style sheet language used to describe the presentation of a document written in a markup language. CSS is used to help readers of web pages to define colors, fonts, layout, and other aspects of document presentation. It is designed primarily to enable the separation of document content (written in HTML or a similar markup language) from document presentation (written in CSS). This separation can improve content accessibility, provide more flexibility and control in the specification of presentation characteristics, and reduce complexity and repetition in the structural content.The CSS is defined in the Theme of your community.
Tips & Tricks
- CSS is designed to prevent users from breaking design elements and therefore it overrides commands from the editor. There are two types of CSS that can override the editor:
- CSS for the entire community
- In-line CSS for a particular page.
- When you copy an object or code with associated CSS from one location to another the CSS is also copied.
- If you wish to use advanced styling we recommend that you use Firefox as your browser when using the editor.
