Notice

Please have in mind that some templates and extensions may have special code customizations that affect the normal operation of Joomla and this may not allow your custom CSS code to load last. In this rare case, you have to do other actions to override the small parts of code that are loaded after your custom CSS code (e.g. use !important).

Full Customization

If you need full customization of your website then you can use all the following free extensions:

  1. Add Custom PHP
  2. Add Custom CSS
  3. Add Custom Javascript

It is recommended to put these extensions in the order specified and after all other extensions in the list.
