Custom Style Sheet

Unlimited flexibility is possible by developing your own styles in webCommunicator's Style Sheet creator. Here you also have the ability to develop styles to be used in the site wide editor. Please note that this section is meant for users with some experience in CSS.

Your Custom Styles will appear at the top of your editor when editing pages within the profile. To change an item(s) style, highlight the desired item(s) and go to "Select a Style". Your custom styles will all appear here.

The general format for a custom style is the following:
.style  {font-size : 10pt;font-family : Arial;font-weight : Bold;font-style : Normal;color : #FFFF00;text-decoration : None;width : 120;border-style : Solid;border-color : cccccc;border-width : Thin;padding-top : 1px;padding-bottom : 1px;padding-right : 1px;padding-left : 1px;border-left-width : 1px;border-right-width : 1px;border-top-width : 1px;border-bottom-width : 1px;}
