WHERE DO I ADD CSS STYLING CODE FOR SMART SEARCH?

CSS is styling code that can be directly integrated into the Rebuy Theme. By doing this, your CSS loads seamlessly with Rebuy, eliminating the need to modify your Shopify Theme. This approach not only streamlines the process but also maintains a cleaner and more organized setup for your site's design.

Access Theme Settings

  • Navigate to the settings page in your Rebuy admin.

  • Click on 'Themes' to open the theme customization options.

    • Or simply click the link below and we will take you there!

Once in the Rebuy Theme Settings page, scroll down to locate the black Custom CSS box at the bottom. Here, you can input any CSS code for custom styling.


CSS STYLING TIPS FOR SMART SEARCH

*Important Terms

Selectors: A Selector is what you're styling.

.rebuy-quick-view__search-input { } is the selector.

This specifies the element you're targeting for styling changes, with curly brackets following the selector used to enclose the CSS properties.

For example .rebuy-quick-view__search-input { } means you're targeting the input box of the SmartSearch Bar

Properties: These specify the styling modifications to the element’s selector and are placed within curly brackets following the selector.

For example, in .rebuy-quick-view__search-input { background: #ffffff; } background: is the property, and you assign it a value. Here, background: #ffffff; sets the button’s color to white using the color hex #ffffff.

*Ensure a semicolon ; follows every property-value pair in your CSS.

Comment code: Comments are enclosed in /* and */ in CSS. This is used to add notes or explanations. Comment code does not run as code. They're helpful for reminding yourself or informing others about what a specific part of the code is for. We recommend including the comment code alongside the code to maintain organization.

Use the !important tag to guarantee your style applies when it's being overridden by other theme styles. It's not always required but is included in this guide's code for precaution.

EXAMPLE:

Now let's explore some commonly used techniques that you can easily copy, paste, and modify to apply CSS for adjusting the look of your Smart Search feature.


SmartSearch Background Color

To modify the background color of the SmartSearch's Quick View dropdown panel and Results Page, copy and paste the following code blocks below.

Making adjustments:

For example, the background-color: property uses a color #hex for changing the element's background Color. Change the hex to your desired color, keep the #

For Example: background-color: #000000;
