What's better? Edit CSS myself or StyleVar Editor?
18 May 2010 07:43

What do you guys think? What's better? Edit CSS myself or StyleVar Editor? Right now, for me it's a pain in the a** to search over and over again for the correct styleVar in the Editor, so i make all the changes in the CSS Files on the server? BUT if I change some stuff in the templates, I have to replace some style variables and thats why I ask if it'S good to do it all myself on the server (vb) files or better use the stylevar editor?

Thank you

I use a little bit of both.

I search for the CSS property I want to change with "Search in templates", and if its a stylevar that I havnt already changed, I set it. If its a stylevar that I already set for something else (or if the style doesn't have a stylevar assigned), I change the CSS template. I prefer not to make new stylevars for time's sake.

None the less, I have about 4 admincp tabs open when I edit the style :P

correct me if I'm wrong, but during upgrades, I think StyleVar information is not changed or removed. However, CSS may end up being removed or modified due to possible template changes that are merged in. At least, that is the impression I got from another thread.
