  • Hi Tom, you can use your browser to inspect the CSS for the elements you want to change and find the class names. In Firefox and Chrome, right-click and select "Inspect element."

    We are also happy to assist with making any CSS changes you need. Send an email to support@forumbee.com with a description of the formatting changes you would like and we can make the changes to your account.
