  • {OCS}MasterSeal: I know this SB isnt' for support, but I just have a general question. Who would I contact to find out where SP stores its block info? Is it DB driven or files? I searched the site but came up with nothing. probably my fault any insight is appreciated.

custom styling of HTML Block
« on: December 16, 2015, 08:56:28 AM »
I stumbled upon this way of styling my custom HTML blocks: I write up a custom .css file to my liking and load it from within the <head>.

This way, the content of each block (not the block itself) gets its own styling. One advantage of this approach, in my opinion, is that it does not interfere in any way with other styling (such as index.css, portal.css) and that makes for an easy upgrade. I did not yet run the file through a css validator, but I do not expect it to fail, either.

My question is: does anyone see a problem with this approach? Is it posing a security risk? Is there a better way to do this?

Regards.

You could also target it using the block id, but it works anyway.
There is no way to hack css, since it's just graphic stuff, you can't inject executable code in it.

Yes, helpful especially with better understanding the portal and its "hidden" power. Though in this particular care I still prefer my way only because I fell more comfortable navigating between different blocks and custom stylings without having to change anything on the portal or smf files; I am completely segregated, which gives me peace of mind.
