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

.cmdb-directory, .cmdb-tiles { background:#ffe000; }
Would become this line

.cmdb-directory, .cmdb-tiles { background:#ffe000; !important; }
