You may have noticed the yellow cog wheel icon while working on a MediaSpot project—that’s for CSS! CSS, or Cascading Style Sheets, is a type of coding language that is primarily used for changing the layout and look of websites. It’s not necessary to utilize CSS when creating your MediaSpot project, but if you’d like to fine-tune some elements or just play around with the effects, this guide and this cheatsheet will show you some basics. The guide will show you the relevant code for the effect and also allow you to see it in action.

The CSS customization box makes it easy to add a background image, adjust the margins and padding, and add a border to a MediaSpot element. If you would like to customize your project or an individual element further, simply enter the code into the “Add Additional CSS” field. Click Apply.
