    Has anyone got custom css to work on this set of shortcodes, particularly on toggles? I've tried custom css on the titles in 2 different themes on 2 different websites and have not been able to get custom css to work.

    Most recently I used an example of custom css that John Gardner suggested in another support thread and this is what I get:

    Any suggestions?

    Hi geologist,

    Sorry for the trouble you're having. One option available is to completely override the plugin's CSS call by including a file (in your case arconix-shortcodes.css) in your theme's directory and the plugin will load that file instead of the plugin's version. You can read more about that here: http://arconixpc.com/2012/rolling-your-own-css-and-javascript

    Alternatively, you can add your own styles to your style.css file, just make sure to use !important declarations if overriding my styles because my stylesheet will be loaded after your theme's style.css in 99% of cases.

    I loaded your linked website, but looking through Chrome's dev tools I don't see any of your styles getting overridden by mine. How are you making your modifications?

    John,

    I'll try putting the css file in my root directory.

    I modify with Notepad++ and upload with FTP. I do this all the time with CSS files so I'm sure it works.

    Thanks for the quick response.
