Modernize Microsoft Power Pages with OOTB Styles and Custom Styles

Microsoft Power Pages is a low-code/no-code website builder that allows you to create and manage websites without writing any code. It comes with a variety of pre-built themes and templates, but you can also apply your custom styling to create a unique look and feel for your website.

There are two ways to apply custom styling in Power Pages

1. Use the Styling workspace: The Styling workspace in Power Pages allows you to make custom CSS changes to individual elements on your pages. You can change the font, color, size, and other properties of any element on your page.

2. Upload a CSS file: You can create a CSS file in your favourite code editor and then upload it to Power Pages. Once you have uploaded the CSS file, it will be applied to all pages on your website.

Way - 1: To use the Styling Workspace

1. Begin by accessing Power Pages and choosing the specific site where you intend to apply custom CSS.

2. Click on the Edit button to enter the site's editing mode.
