Style Sheet Sets

Pages rendered using style sheets typically use more than one. For example, you might have a “main.css” style sheet that contains general style sheet definitions and a “home.css” containing styles specific to the home page. A style sheet set contains one or more style sheets that you can apply to your pages.

Individual style sheets cannot be directly associated with a page or template. Instead, you add style sheets to a style sheet set and then associate the set with a page or template. Typically, sets are associated with templates. Pages derived from the template then inherit the template’s sets.

However, you can add a new style sheet to a page or template in CommonSpot.

Note: When you create a page, it inherits any associated style sheet sets. Once you make style sheet changes, the page uses the modified version and no longer derives formatting from the inherited set.  CommonSpot maintains the modified version locally. However, you can restore inheritance.  For more information, see Style Sheet Sets and Style Sheet Inheritance.

You can change style sheet sets and the sheets they contain by selecting Manage – Style Sheets while logged in to CommonSpot. The Style Sheet Sets dialog displays as shown below.

CommonSpot uses the first style sheet set available. Not all sets are available due to scheduling criteria. See Schedule/Personalize. After locating the first set, CommonSpot ignores all others. Set the order of preference by clicking and dragging to a new position in this table. (Note: For IE, click on the Name or Title, instead of the entire row.)

Alternatively, select one or more style sheets and click the insert icon to move multiple sets or to move one or more sets outside of the scrollable region. Note that changes to style sheet set order are saved immediately.

This dialog displays the following fields:

Click the Save button to keep changes to this section. Note that clicking Close without first saving will not honor changes made to this section.
