Why use CM Download Manager custom CSS?

The CM Download Manager custom CSS feature allows you to change the appearance of your download area and customize it in case you want it to match your WordPress theme, insert a special design for holidays and events, or simply make it more appealing and to your liking. Once modified, the custom CSS will take effect on any page or post .

Here are the steps you need to take in order to set up your CM Download Manager custom CSS

  • To locate the existing CSS rules, right click on any element and in the browser menu and look for the option “Inspect Element” (This option may be phrased differently depending on what internet browser you’re using).

  • Once you locate the CSS class and define the change, you can use the custom CSS found in the plugin settings to customize and alter the elements!

TIP: Making your custom CSS priority with !important

If your custom CSS is not working and appearing crossed out, it means other rules have higher priority. 

You can set your rule as more important by adding the !important property. 

For example, this line

.cma-question-button a { background:#ffe000; }
Would become this line
.cma-question-button a { background:#ffe000 !important; }
