Best practices

  • You cannot inspect the page and use any classes given as it may not give you the intended results. Use only Zuddl custom classes listed for branding customizations.
  • Add "!important" on properties that aren't behaving as expected, which may be because of any existing class. This tag will give precedence to the CSS.
  • Do not use <style> tags in the Custom CSS text area.
  • The feature only supports plain CSS and not CSS nesting.
