CSS Classes

Use available CSS classes to customize your Apps’ display.

Available for Chat, Comments, Live Blog, Reviews, and Sidenotes.

Use CSS to customize your Livefyre Apps for a more complete integration with your page, by simply overriding the default App CSS with your own stylesheet. This section describes available CSS customizations.

Editor CSS

Use these classes to change the post editor interface.

Class Description
.fyre-comment-count The text displaying the number of comments.
.fyre-login-bar The bounding box that contains the login bar and options.
.fyre-live-container The bounding box around the number of people listening and their avatars.
.fyre-editor The bounding box around the .fyre-login-bar, .fyre-live-container and the text area where users write their comments.
.fyre-stream-sort The bounding box around the sorting options.

You can also edit styles in the App configuration itself, including the editor field background color, and the font color, size, and family of the text that appears inside the editor.

To customize the comment editor, add the editorCss:{} object to fyre.conv.load() and include your desired styling. For example, to update the editor with your custom CSS:

fyre.conv.load(networkConfig, [{
   siteId: LF_siteId,
   el: 'livefyre',
   articleId: LF_articleId,
   collectionMeta: #CollectionMeta
   editorCss: {
