advanced tab custom css

Let’s see how to use it.

For example, we are using the Paragraph block from The Plus Blocks for Gutenberg on the page. Now we want to add a background to the paragraph section of one block with CSS.

First, we must find the unique class containing the paragraph using Inspect Element of the browser.

We have found the class name called “pro-paragraph-inner“. 

Now if we directly target this class, the CSS rules will apply to all other paragraph blocks on the page. To make the CSS rule specific to the block, we have to use {{PLUS_BLOCK}} before followed by the class name.

Like this:

{{PLUS_BLOCK}} .pro-paragraph-inner{
background:pink;
padding:20px;
}

Note: If you use the Custom Class(es) or Custom ID you have to add your class or id name right after {{PLUS_BLOCK}} without any space.

Note: You can make your CSS unique for a block using the Custom Class(es) or Custom ID, but make sure not to use the same class or id name on other blocks.
