Using CSS with Simpo

Updated 5 months ago by Wesley Faulkenberry


What is CSS?

Cascading Style Sheets (or CSS) is a style sheet language used to describe the presentation of a markup language such as HTML. CSS allows us to modify the appearance of Simpo's Tools, usually to match your product's branding and aesthetics.


Where can I use CSS within Simpo?

While Simpo is designed to require no coding or developer resources, you have the option to customize your Simpo experience via CSS fields found across a variety of Tools and pages, including:

  • Simpo's Configuration Page
  • Announcements (Design)
  • Walkthroughs (Global Settings)
  • Walkthrough (Builder Settings)
Only modify Simpo via CSS if you are authorized and trained to do so! Incorrect modifications can have a severe impact on the look and functionality of Simpo on your product. If you would like to apply CSS to your Simpo account and aren't sure how, please reach out to your CS representative or message us at support@simpo.com.
