    360 Search: Using CSS to Style Your 360 Search Interface

    • Product: 360 Search

    Where can I find a reference for the various CSS classes used in the 360 Search interface? I'd like to customize them using my own styles.

    Many libraries choose to use the branding options in 360 Search to share the look and feel of their library's web site to the application. However, in some cases you may want greater or more granular control over the presentation of the various elements in the Search and Results screens in 360 Search, and the best way to do it is to use CSS. Each HTML element in the 360 Search interface is tagged with a class so that you can apply your own styles as needed.

    The Search Page

    The table below lists the most commonly customized HTML tags and their associated CSS classes for the initial 360 Search interface. If you do not see the tag and class you would like to customize in this list please use the Contact Us tab at the top of this page to send a request to our Support group for assistance.
