what is Custom css and where to add it?

zentoolsIf you use Zentools please post a review at the Joomla! Extensions Directory.

Custom css is new css code you add to your site
its either - new css code or css code to overide an existing template styling

The file it needs to be added to is called custom_rename_to_custom.css or if renamed custom.css (for the file to work it needs to be called custom.css) - this file is protected from being overwritten by template updates

The path to the file is
\templates\template name\css\custom_rename_to_custom.css

via the joomla backend the path is

extensions tab > template manager > Templates (top left in Joomla 3) > "template name" details and files > Edit css/custom_rename_to_custom.css

Hi

You need to rename the file - this bit

"for the file to work it needs to be called custom.css"

so via ftp or file manager you need to rename custom_rename_to_custom.css to custom.css

Cheers
Paul

No problem - I do tend to go with red as it makes it obvious what area is changed - so I tend to test using red for both font color and backgrounds :)
