THis is really doing my head in.......I can't seem to get any styles to show in InContext Editing??
Can anyone help?
Hi there dndwest, do you mean you want to edit styles in the InContext editor? That is just for editing the stuff in the tag-pagecontent section of your template.
I am assuming you are using DW to edit the site and have the BC widget loaded into DW? I map the BC site in DW and have local and remote files and have the stylesheets and templates folder etc on my hard drive. The stylesheet is linked into the template, and I edit the CSS in DW and then upload to change my styles.
I may be taking coals to Newcastle here! lol!
If you want to edit the CSS for your site on the fly in the back end of BC you need to go to Site Manager/File Manager and then browse to the stylesheets folder. Click on the stylesheet you want to edit and its name will come up on the rhs. Click edit (careful, don't click delete, or you will be crying!) then you can edit your stylesheet on the fly there. Have a page of your site up in a browser to view the changes. I don't think you have rollback available in this area. so be careful.
If I misunderstood your question and you mean that your stylesheet styles are not applying to your pages, then maybe the stylesheet is linked wrongly to your template and you need to refresh both in DW and upload to BC again.
Hi Mary thanks for that. I was more after why my styles won't appear in the InContext editor. I have the styles in the css files, pages linked to the css files, but I'm having a couple of problems, the style drop down box in InContext editor just says No Style. The other problem is when I go into the Partner Portal and the Online Editing section and change a number of settings, such as typography, Apply CSS, font colours etc none of those settings come through to the InContext editor for the site?
Hi DND West
You are on the right track. You create the css style on your stylesheet and then go to the Partner Portal and add the style name to the "Editor Apply CSS" section. It should then show up.
However, there are definitely caching isues, so you will need to clear the cache and then try looking for it. It should then show up. It is a bit buggy though.
