    Creating custom styles

    You can create Custom styles using the Style builder.

    Important information about custom styles:

    • Custom styles are CSS classes
    • They are prefixed with .coh-style- to prevent them from conflicting with other CSS classes
    • They are grouped into categories that correspond with the types of element they can be applied to.

    Create a custom style

    To create a Custom style:

    1. Navigate to Site Studio > Styles > Custom styles 
    2. Click Add custom style

    3. In the list of Custom style types, click on the Custom style type you want to create

    4. On the next screen, enter a name in the Title field for your Custom style. This will be used to generate the class name. It will be prefixed with .coh-style- to prevent it from conflicting with other classes
