Prior to today's push, you had two options: 1) go with the stylesheet output that was based upon the settings in the control panel, or 2) supply a complete CSS replacement of your own.

Now, you have a third option; you can specify CSS Additions.  These take the standard output from option 1 above, and add new rules you supply.  They can be entirely new, perhaps for custom elements you use in something like a free-form HTML widget, or they can be used to override only specific elements from the default output.

The interface for working with CSS Additions is in your Control Panel, under Custom HTML and Script.  Click Custom CSS, and then select the "CSS Additions to Standard" tab.  Further information is provided there.

Last week, we ninja-patched in a new feature that can be accessed from the Custom HTML and Custom CSS sections of the Control Panel.  A link is available that lists the current, standard GuildPortal CSS classes.  It provides a pop-up window that you can keep open while you're working with your custom CSS or HTML, and clicking on most of the listed CSS classes provides a brief explanation of what they are used for.  It's there to make custom CSS authoring a little easier.

Some may have noticed that the editor has also had an update.  Many issues with the previous version are ironed out with the new one.

Finally, aside from bug fixes (in response to support tickets) in this update, the Control Panel's left pane is now collapsible -- using the slider bar's arrow -- so that whatever section of the Control Panel you're working in can be expanded further, giving you more room.

WOW Aaron!

Those are great additions! I think I'm going to start using the CSS additions tab

As for the CSS Class listing, I do like it, but I've already run into one error on quick glance.. there is no "StateBar" class, it is currently "WfTopMenu".

I also think users who plan on customizing script should look at this bookmarklet called SelectorGadget. When you click on the link in your bookmark, it loads a script that highlights page content and when you click on it, it highlights and shows you the class associated with it. There is a video on the site that shows you better than I can describe. I usually use Firebug for Firefox, but it's a little more complicated than this bookmarklet, which is a very nice alternative
