I note that the out of the box tabs of the Experience Profile reference a custom style sheet.

<link href="/sitecore/shell/client/Applications/ExperienceProfile/Contact/Details/DetailsTab.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />
<link href="/sitecore/shell/client/Applications/ExperienceProfile/Contact/Outcomes/Outcomes.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />
<link href="/sitecore/shell/client/Applications/ExperienceProfile/Contact/Overview/OverviewTab.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />
<link href="/sitecore/shell/client/Applications/ExperienceProfile/Contact/Channels/ChannelsTab.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />

etc., etc.

I would like to assign a style sheet to a custom tab I have added to this page. Is this possible -- and if so, how?

I am running Sitecore 8.1 Update 2?

  • Can't you add the reference to your custom tab? I expect that it has a view if you use SPEAK, and then you can just put it there. Commented Oct 20, 2016 at 21:22
  • Through a SubPageCode rendering? Commented Oct 20, 2016 at 21:34
  • I mean something like here - visionsincode.wordpress.com/2015/08/06/… here you have the .cshtml where you can put your stylesheet reference. Commented Oct 20, 2016 at 21:42

Style Sheets are added using SPEAK via Sitecore Rocks in Visual Studio. The point of this answer is not to show you how to install Sitecore Rocks, however, I will should you how to add it.


In the Below Examples, we are working with SPEAK UI through Sitecore Rocks. This is recommended, as Sitecore's Content Editor does not support some of the rendering properties that SPEAK UI requires. As such, it is default procedure to always use Sitecore Rocks when editing SPEAK applications.

NOTE: that we are editing the CORE database, so publishing is not needed here.

Step 1 - Find the Experience Profile Contact Page Settings

Step 2 - Add a New Item

Step 3 - Search for Page-Stylesheet-File

enter image description here

Set a name for the style sheet here.

Step 4 - Set Path to Style Sheet File and Save your Item

Double click on the new item you created (TestPanelStyle in this example)

enter image description here

Note: That this is the physical path location under your Website Root.

Step 5 - Save your CSS File in that Physical Path

Step 6 - Reload Your Experience Profile Page

You'll Notice that your custom CSS Page now shows up.

Version Differences

Sitecore 8.0 - Sitecore 8.1 Update 2

Notice that the CSS files are explicit and numerous in SPEAK Applications, as exampled here:

Sitecore 8.1 Update 3

Update 3 Introduces CSS Minification. The procedure above to add CSS to your Experience Profile Contact Tab is the same, except the resulting source code is the minified CSS.
