Add CSS Style in Html Editor

Add CSS Style in Html Editor

Hi,
I am using Data bridge - HTML Editor, and to give an example when I try to make a text let say Bold, it shows the change in the HTML Editor text area but not in the page, the page has dynamic content but not style applied, I want to know if there is something extra that I have to do, or how to add my own css styles in the HTML Editor Styles drop down. I've been looking for a solution in the forum but I couldn't find it.

Thanks in advanced.

send a link where i can see the problem please.


to add custom styles to html editor, edit the Preset that is being used, go to the Styling tab. On the styling tab, select your CSS file, then edit the items to display in the styles list, to add classes from your CSS file to the styles list.

Hi Jason,

That's one page but the whole site in that folder has the text formatted from the HTML Editor.

Thanks

I was asking what specifically I should be looking for on the page you provided the link to, what specifically is not formatted correctly?

Oh!

On that page for example the text "General Business Matters" is supposed to be Bold and from "Formation of entities" down is formatted with Bulleted list.

it is set to be bold using a strong tag:

<strong><span style="font-size:14px;"><span style="font-family: arial,helvetica,sans-serif;">General Business Matters</span></span></strong>

and a span tag to set the font size to 14px:


as for the list, you have css to set the list style to to none ion main.css:

ol, ul {
list-style: none outside none;
}

I think I am misunderstanding a few things, all those tags and span are generated by the HTML Editor, but in the page the text is not showing correctly, Bold for example, the ol, ul are css that I need for other parts of my page, that means if I use the HTML Editor I cannot use my own css styles?

when you apply bold, that is the way HTML Editor codes BOLD.

you should use a class for your other lists to over ride the list type.
