How to Style an Event Calendar

MSL has written some CSS to customise your event calendar's appearance if you prefer not to use the default style. The comments in the code explain how to adjust colours and dimensions. To apply them, create an Event Calendar widget on your webpage following the step-by-step instructions below, and copy the provided CSS code.

You can access this feature from your MSL website. Only Content Editors with access to Website Admin can access the Website Pages window.

Be careful not to modify the functional styles, as they are essential for the widget's operation. The functional styles are commented to indicate which CSS properties should not be modified.

For further information, see Events Widgets.
