Best practices for using CSS with your Shogun elements
If you already have some CSS classes in your site's theme, you can use them in the CSS class field to apply those styles to Shogun elements. Once an element is selected, this can be found at the bottom of the sidebar once you expand the Custom CSS item.
Just enter the class name as it would appear in the HTML, e.g.,
btn-large . You don't need to include a leading dot in this field.
You can even add multiple CSS class names into this field! Just make sure to leave a space between the class names!
Adding CSS to Your Shogun Page
You can also add style tags directly to your Shogun page using the HTML element, like this:

Adding CSS to Your Theme
If you want to repurpose the CSS across multiple pages & elements, we recommend adding the CSS to the bottom of your theme's main stylesheet. The
<style></style> HTML tags are not needed when adding to your theme's CSS file. For example:
I'm stuck, who do I turn to for help?
