Edit style sheets

The Style Sheet Editor allows you to modify the look and feel of the portal pages seen by your network users. This editor only modifies portal pages distributed with FortiNAC in version 4.1.1 or higher. Legacy portal pages cannot be edited using this tool. See Portal content editor for additional information.

When the Style Sheet Editor is accessed it displays a sample portal page. This gives you a way to preview your changes as you make them. There are two methods for editing your style sheets.

The first method is to click on an item in the sample page to pop-up a window of options that can be modified.

The second method allows you to enter custom rules for different items in the sample page. This option requires knowledge about cascading style sheets and elements within those style sheets.

Some mobile devices may automatically interpret any text resembling a phone number as a hyperlink. As a result, all rules relative to hyperlinks, including text color, are applied and may cause unexpected results. You may need to supply custom rules in the Style Editor to correct any unexpected issues.
