Wondering what's a good way to add some CSS to override the theme's style. 

Or there's no point and I should go ahead and modify the theme?

Am I just too stupid for this CMS?

I can not manage to add CSS to this, I've been reading everything. Tried to add a custom CSS file through Addon.ini and it still doesn't work.

Documentation seems to be for other versions. I don't get the point of the Manage Classes area since I can only name a class but not add properties tot it. 

I've read on the Selectable Classes plugin which says " To make them cause an effect they need to be defined in the theme's CSS/LESS or via gpEasy's built-in Layout Editor."

I eventually found Section Attributes in the Layout Editor, but I don't see a way to edit the class? I'm gong crazy because I really like the CMS,  but can't use it if I can't edit a single class.

Every theme has a style.css (or a style.scss or a style.less) , which is in a subfolder of the template (under themes if installed directly - under \data\_themes  if installed from the web)

You can edit it directly with ftp (filezilla + notepad++) or overwrite in the Layout-editor(sometimes not effective) - so never edit the addon.ini (You can of course import files in the style .css - they are automatic added to ONE file in the cache by the CMS. SCSS understands css - less doesnt (convert css with online less to less converter  or use a special import)).

Thanks, it seems I was too involved and tired at the time, took a break for a couple of days and I have now found the theme's style.scss; I've been working with Wordpress and I was expecting too much from this CMS, I kept looking for ways like a plugin to add custom CSS.

But I'll take what I can get, editing the style.scss is fine for now.

Thank you mabu.

You can also write your own css file, change the extension to scss and include it in style.scss without extension ([email protected] css/myCss) .This way you only have to add/change one line when you change or update template. To override things use !important.
