How to customize the look of your Blork

Have you been using Blork, but found yourself wanting to change its look and feel? Well, you can!

If you look the Prefs area, you’ll see a “Look & Feel” section that has a link to “Custom CSS.” Clicking that link will take you to a prefs page where you can extensively customize the look and feel of your Blork pages using CSS.

If you’re comfortable with CSS and you’re ready to get customizing, this is what you do.

  1. Click on the “Prefs” link in the Blork menu. Then click on the “Custom CSS” link in the “Look & Feel” section.
  2. On the “Custom CSS” page, you’ll see a text box containing the default CSS for Blork. You can make any changes you want in this box, then click the “Submit” button at the bottom of the page.
  3. Reload the page or click on one of the links in the Blork menu, and you’ll see your changes. Voilà!
  4. If you completely break everything, or you just want to get back the default CSS, you can simply go back to the “Custom CSS” page, clear the text box containing your custom CSS, then click the “Submit” button. Reload the page or click on one of the links in the Blork menu, and the default CSS will be reloaded.

For example, one small yet dramatic tweak you could try would be to add the following to the bottom of the default CSS:

body {
  font-family: "Trebuchet MS", Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
  font-size: 120%;
  }

See? Now, show us what you’ve got! 🙂
