Yes you can. You will need some one with at least basic HTML/CSS knowledge though in order to set this up.

If you don't have the knowledge we can set this up for you within your account for $25.00 Ex GST Email with your request and we can facilitate this for you.

Set Up

What you need to do is firstly create a CSS file with all the styles you wish to use. See the example below.

Then in the "Account Settings" in the menu and Click on the edit pencil next to 'Upload Custom CSS'

You'll be taken to a screen where you can remove the current CSS from the system. All accounts come with a default CSS style so you will need to remove this to upload your own.Do do this click on the "Delete" icon.

You'll see a warning message appear on screen. Click "Confirm". You'll be directed back to the General Settings menu.

You will then need to go back into the setting to upload your file. Click 'browse' to select the file from your desktop.

Once selected click "Save" and you new CSS code will be saved into your account.

**TIP** You will probably need to clear your browser Cache in order to view the changes in the WYSIWYG. You may also need to force refresh (CTRL + F5) your browser. To confirm the changes have been successfully added you should be able to see them in the Styles drop down in the WYSIWYG.

Where it's viewable.

The styles drop down can be see in all areas of the system where there is a WYSIWYG editor. This includes, Email Templates, Email Campaigns, Web Forms and Landing Pages. To access the styles menu when editing emails, web forms or Landing pages all you need to do is:

1. Type in your content (see image below)

2. Then, using the "Styles" drop down menu you can select from one of the styles that you have created.Once selected it should add the style to the text like the image below.
