Hi c k,

This is a two step process. The first one is to add another CSS file(for example, I use site.css 'cause Visual Studio default Project settings that file).

And include in all the pages/templates after bootstrap.
i.e.

<link href="Styles/bootstrap.css" rel="stylesheet"> 
<link href="Styles/site. css" rel="stylesheet">

Open in new window


And in the site.css, change the definition as you see fit. Also you can use !important keyword to hint the overrides as well.

For exammple,

.dropdown-item { background-color: red; color: white; }

Open in new window

Chinmay.
