Custom css

ProsePoint Express sites have a feature termed custom css which allows users to override the CSS styles of their site. CSS defines the appearance of web pages, so it can be used to change most, if not all, of the visual and cosmetic aspects of a site.

Unfortunately, being a web development tool, CSS uses a technical language which puts it outside the reach of most people.

However, if there are small aspects of your site's appearance which you'd like to modify, please contact us. There is a good chance it can be done via custom css and we'd be happy to work it out and implement on your behalf.

Alternatively, you can give it a try yourself.

We will provide some css code snippets for various common modifications that you can use on your site. These are grouped by theme (because css builds on the styles that already exist in the underlying theme).

To use these snippets:

  • Visit Settings » Custom css in the Control Menu of your site and copy and paste the code snippets into the Custom css textarea.

(Remember to also tick the checkbox Enable custom css)


ProsePoint Express themes are constructed to maintain vertical rhythm. A line height of 20 px is used, and any vertical elements or spacing should be a multiple of 20px. When this is not practical, then 10px is sometimes used.

Please be careful if adjusting whitespace, borders, or font sizes as the vertical rhythm of your site may be disrupted.
