Grid view CSS change not working

I want to customise the CSS for Grid view so that it permanently displays the event info rather than just on hover. I found this but for some reason when I alter the CSS for the page it doesn’t make a difference. Is the theme interfering somehow?

Any help woud be appreciated.

Hi there,

The code you are trying to use is for an older version of the grid template add-on and will no longer work with the latest version.

You can use:

.ee_grid_box_v2 .ee_overlay {
    top: 0;

To display the event details permanently.

You can add that to Appearance -> Customize -> Additional CSS

Please refer to this guide for more detailed information about the CSS customizer:

That is perfect – thanks! If I want to change the font and font colour can I also do that through the same process?

Similar, but it depends on what you want to change.

EE applies minimal styles and right now is picking up the theme’s default p styles for the bottom line, which I’m assuming is the problem?

What is it you want to change?

We are changing styles and wanted to change the font to ‘Cubano-Regular’ and for the date and time to also be in white.

Yeah so, you can style any elements within those sections by prefixing this selector .ee_grid_box_v2 .ee_overlay

So something like:

.ee_grid_box_v2 .ee_overla .event-link, 
.ee_grid_box_v2 .ee_overlay .event-title, 
.event-link, .ee_grid_box_v2 .ee_overlay .start-date {
    font-family: 'Cubano-Regular'!important;

Your theme is setting the font-family using !important, so we need to override that using the above.
