Site Customizations

Although we provide quite a few options for customizing your site by way of page leafs and page settings, there may come a point where you want to customize it just a little bit more. This can come by way of applying some custom CSS.

  1. While in your site admin, click on the Settings link on the menu on the left.

  2. Next, click the Scripts tab.

Custom CSS can be added here within a style tag like so:

<style>
body{
background:red;
}
</style>

This CSS rule will turn the background of your site red.

With great power comes great responsibility! While it's possible to muck things up, here's an example of what's possible with some custom CSS.
