Isolate login page div for custom css

(Mei) #1

Is there a way to isolate specific div’s on the login page? I’m trying to create a landing page (my forum is set to private). I know you can’t target #ember1234 since that number changes constantly, but any more general div’s affects the rest of the forum.

It doesn’t appear that I can add inline CSS directly into my HTML on the login page either.

Unfortunately my knowledge extends only to CSS, so I don’t know if there’s a way to do this by adding a script to the header or not.

Is what I’m trying to achieve possible?

I’m just needing to apply this code, but only on the login page:

#ember1465 {
    width: 73%;
    margin: 0px auto;

#ember1465 h1 {
    font-size: 30px;
    text-transform: uppercase;
    font-weight: bold;
    color: #FBC600;
    margin-bottom: 30px;
    text-align: center !important;
    padding: 20px;
    border: 10px solid #E8E8E8;  

#ember1465 a {
    background-color: #DA3982;
    display: inline-block !important;
    margin: 0px !important;
    padding: 5px 15px;
    color: #FFF;
    letter-spacing: 3px;
    text-transform: uppercase;
    font-weight: bold;

Can you take a screenshot of the div/form you are trying to apply to so we can try and find it and give you a better solution? I’m sure there is one, just need to see what exactly you are trying to target.

Even if you can make the dialog/form display here on Meta, a screenshot of it here will be useful.

Hey @cpradio! Thanks for your input. For reference, here’s a screenshot. I’m trying to target several elements within this specific div.

Does that give you more information on what I’m trying to achieve?

Yeah, it does. Can you tell us how you got that content loaded onto the screen, did you use the Customize HTML area or a plugin to inject a template?

Curious if you could inject another div around your content and give it a specific class or id to use for reference.

I used the Customize HTML area. I went to Admin > Customize > Text Content and just typed in the HTML directly in there.

I have some elements in there with classes but once the page is saved, the class is stripped. For example, in the HTML I have Blabla and in the custom CSS I have .class123 { font-size; 2em; }.

After saving, I can see the class=“class123” is completely gone from the HTML of the page.

Because of that, I don’t think it’s possible to wrap everything in a div…?

Custom login page?

Try this, but I’m not sure if it will impact anything after the user is logged in.

#main-outlet div.ember-view .container .body-page {
  width: 73%;
  margin: 0px auto;

Worked great!

That did however affect the FAQ page as well, but that wasn’t a problem to get the CSS on there back to its original form.

Thanks @cpradio!
