Description of problem

Unfortunately, CSS doesn't work in the ways that others say it does LOL.

To access your CSS stylesheet, Forumotion made you the way simple. In fact you just need to go to your admin panel, and go to display-> colors. If needed, choose "yes" to the question "Deactivate the
basic CSS"
, and click on the "save" button. Then when the page has reloaded, click on "See your forum basic CSS" and paste it into the white box called "CSS". Here is your basic forum CSS.
Now, let's try to modify it !

Doesn't work :|

Hi @Ace 1,

Unforunately the CSS stylesheet can only hold 65,000 characters. Disabling the default styles pretty much leaves you to style everything else yourself, by hand. Copying all the style rules from the "See your basic CSS" popup is a bad idea, due to the fact that it exceeds the limitations of the ACP stylesheet.

You should only use the CSS from there to get an idea, or to copy that which you see is necessary. Personally, I recommend you keep the default styles enabled, simply because your ACP stylesheet will override the default styles. However, if you don't want to do that, you can host an external stylesheet elsewhere and add it to the <head> element via the templates. ( overall_header )

You could also attempt to minify the CSS, but from a test it rounds to about 70,000 characters, leaving you little space.

Minifying the CSS didn't work... It said something about the alternately brackets not being correct.

But what do you advise to be the "necessary" parts of the CSS?

That can be anything that you need, such as body styles, editor styles, etc.. The basic styles can be used as a reference if you're not sure about something.

So I should just do a Trial-and-Error type style and see what happens every time I add more and take out less? I'm not that experienced with CSS but I've had my fair share of VB and HTML.
