Quick Edit Guide:

As standard, the below coding is added within your event template. These are the 3 easiest ways you can change the overall look and feel of your event experience. 

:root {

    --primary-theme-color: [Primary Theme Colour Here];

    --secondary-theme-color: [Secondary Theme Colour Here];

    --body-background: [Body Background Here];


As you can see, the template is broken up into theme colours and a background of your choosing.

  • The Primary Theme Colour is used for branding Headings, Links, Buttons and Icons.
  • The Secondary Theme Colour is used for the hover states of elements such as: Links, Buttons and Icons.
  • The Body Background can either be a solid colour, a gradient or a background image which uses a URL. For more information on how to get an image URL from the platform please refer to Uploading an Image into the Platform.

Code codes where available to be HEX or RGB

Background images to be as large as possible (recommended minimum size of 2100px by 1000px)

You may already have brand guidelines which dictate your main colours, however should you wish to choose a new colour, you can use this colour generator here: https://www.w3schools.com/colors/colors_picker.asp

Simply find the colour value you wish to use, then copy and paste this in replacement of the red values above. You will then be able to β€˜Save’ and β€˜Publish’ your changes which will then come through to your event.

With our templates, you have the option of having both a solid colour for your background or an image. This is what you would use to add a solid colour background:

:root {

  --body-background: [Background Colour here];


And for an image background:


--body-background: url("https://myimageurlhere") #465064 no-repeat center center/cover fixed;



Uploading an Image Background:

1. In your event, go to the Session Setup & Studio Access section click on Features
