Join Jen Kramer for an in-depth discussion in this video Override Foundation's core CSS, part of Learning Foundation 6.
- [Voiceover] As I mentioned at the beginning of the course,…Foundation offers a comprehensive way of changing…your styles globally via Sass.…This is the best way to style your Foundation sites…since you can easily manage your global variables…insuring that your page will change uniformly.…However, it's possible not to use Sass…and simply use CSS to override…or add to Foundation's core styling.…You can use a tool like Firebug to identify the styles…affecting an element on your webpage…and then copy those styles to your custom styles sheet…and override the desired values that way.…
You can also write your own custom styles…in the style sheet,…or add new styles that are outside the realm of Foundation…for styling your webpage.…And of course you can combine both working with sass…and working with CSS overrides…when working on your site as well.…Right now, as I take a look at this website,…The size of these H2s have been bugging me for a long time.…They've been bugging you too?…Let's plan on making these a little bit smaller.…
