Posts: 1



Im sure im just not doing something right here...  Maybe you could point me in the right direction. I made a CSS website for my guild from scratch. Ive never made one from scratch but i was learning CSS and decided it would be awesome practice. I finished most of it and when I went to publish it I didnt realize the start-up costs would be so much. So, i thought that maybe i could get a subscription to a community website and just overwrite their CSS with my own and noone would be the wiser for it. I came to your site to get tips on how to incorporate my own CSS but one of your links isnt working. The link that opens up the guildportal stylesheet so that i can paste my guild url onto the end only opens to a bare page with no content. Ill keep tinkering and see if i can get it working but thought id ask for a solution in the meantime. Thanks for your time!

Hi starfouse!

It sounds like you might have created custom css that likely doesn't match the HTML layout set up by GuildPortal. Yes, you can also set up custom HTML for the page, but there is still a basic structure.

Anyway, to get to the custom css, click on "Control Panel" at the top of your page (next to where you log in), then click on "Custom HTML & Script" > "Custom CSS". From here it depends on what kind of css you have.
  • The "CSS Additions to Standard" tab is where you add any loose css definitions. Anything in this tab will be added to the end of the existing theme stylesheet.
  • The "Full Custom CSS" tab should contain css that replaces ALL of the default/theme css. So it needs to include a lot of stuff. 
    • You could check out the bookmarklet I wrote to show most (it hasn't been kept up-to-date) of the basic classes used. I just tested it and it doesn't seem to want to work in Chrome, but it does work in Firefox.
    • There is also a theme selector post which covers the basic css needed. Please note that it refers to custom HTML as well.
