Using CSS with Simpo Plus

Updated 2 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 Plus's Tools, usually to match your product's branding and aesthetics.


Where can I use CSS within Simpo Plus?

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

  • Simpo Plus's Configuration Page
  • Announcements (Design)
  • Walkthroughs (Global Settings)
  • Walkthrough (Builder Settings)
  • Quick Search (Widget configuration)
For help with personalizing walkthroughs, please visit its designated entry.
Only modify Simpo Plus 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 Plus on your product. If you would like to apply CSS to your Simpo Plus account and aren't sure how, please reach out to us at support@simpo.io
