Override existing CSS styles with your CSS files.

Joomla! 3.x Plugin

LIVE DEMO    DOWNLOAD

Load your custom CSS styles and override the styles of the template and the other extensions (modules & components).

Almost in every Joomla site there is need to do customizations to the appearance of the template and the extensions. This extension loads your custom CSS file after all other CSS files (except special hard coded occasions), allowing you to do any styling change you want.

Using this extension for doing CSS customizations there is no need to change the code of the template and the other extensions. That way you are free to apply updates, when an update from the creator is available, without worrying if the custom changes are going to be lost.

This extension comes as plugin and as module. You can use one of them or both according to your needs. The plugin will load your custom CSS file in every webpage and the module will load it only to the webpages selected from you.

This extension can't override inline styles and templates that intentionally load their CSS and Javascript files last (e.g. Warp Framework).
