Custom CSS for Your Campaign

Tonight we deployed a new feature for Ascendant campaigns, the ability to add custom CSS rules that are applied campaign-wide. In addition, we did an overhaul of much of the HTML on the site to make theming much easier. We’ve added divs, standardized some naming, and generally cleaned things up.

However! This means that if you’ve extensively styled and themed your campaign already, you may have some issues and pages may not look exactly right. We apologize for the inconvenience, but we wanted to make sure that anyone embarking on creating a theme for their campaign would start off on the right foot. Some of the old markup was not as clean as it should have been and we decided now was the best time to fix it.

Help! My campaign looks funky! How do I fix it?

If your campaign doesn’t look just right anymore, the best way to fix it is to move your CSS rules out of the pages themselves and into the custom CSS field on the ‘Edit Campaign Settings’ screen. These rules will be applied campaign-wide, making it much easier to style your campaign as a whole. For more information, read the help guide that I put together and browse the forum thread where we discuss the new feature.

We’ll be making a big announcement about the new feature soon, but I just wanted to give warning so people would know how to fix any issues they see.

  1. Yay! I stopped using OP because I got tired of having to inline style everything. Hopefully, I get back in the habit of using OP again. 🙂 Good news.

  2. This is great. I have already used it change the default link style for my campaign.

    Thank you guys for getting this to work for us. It will make life so much easier.

    Now if we could get an include function that would be awesome!

  3. This is an exciting add! I have used it for class colors and standard background, and I am experimenting with a custom nav bar!
    Great work! Thanks!

  4. Did the big announcement ever happen? I didn’t know about this long-awaited feature until I randomly went to my campaign settings page yesterday. I don’t even think that my ticket requesting this feature has been closed.

    Regardless, thanks! I had just been wondering what had been going on with OP, as I hasn’t seen any changes lately. Have I missed any other stealth features??

    • You’ve not missed any other stealth updates, we actually did announce it here though! Thanks for using OP and rest assured this isn’t the only trick we’ve got up our sleeves 🙂
