I created a new site and added few basic components like Rich-Text and Image

I then followed below did below changes after reading few articles.

1) Duplicate Basic2 Theme with ExploreSXABasic2
2) Changed Theme in Settings - /sitecore/content/Tenants/exploresxa/Explore-SXA/Settings -- Compatible themes:
3) Selected Theme in Experience Editor -- ExploreSXABasic2
4) Export Theme
5) Edit index.html and component-richtext-content
enter image description here
6) Import Theme

I added a class after add-your-css-classes-here in index.html -- It is imported properly. And I can see that in Selected Styles. enter image description here

But changes done in component-richtext-content are not imported.

  • When you say "they are not imported" do you mean you don't see the changes in the browser? Have you validated on the server that the changes made it to the server? Just wondering if this is a browser cache issue. Sep 4, 2017 at 1:36
  • CSS (file) changes are not updating in Sitecore. I don't see the change in file statistics and also I tried to download and see the changes. But no luck Sep 4, 2017 at 6:21
  • Have you changed the theme on the Website? Sep 4, 2017 at 12:36

The system won't allow updating the default themes -- So even if we update, it won't import, We have to create a new theme while creating the Site. And in Step 3 select the newly created theme. The new theme will be created at path: /sitecore/media library/Themes/(Sitecore Tenant Folder)/(SXA Site)/

  • Did you resolve this issue? I got the same problem and my custom.css style is not uploaded even the creative exchange says 'The import has succeeded.' Feb 2, 2018 at 11:31
  • Have you created the new theme? It will only update the new theme and if you are using the default theme it won't' import and you'll see the succeeded message. Feb 2, 2018 at 14:38
  • Yes, I am using my own theme prior to the export' Feb 2, 2018 at 16:49
  • Please try to create the zip of: 1) - (Folder) 2) sitecore%20modules (Folder) 3) index.html For reference see - nikkipunjabi.com/Sitecore/stackoverflow/sxa.png And then try. Feb 3, 2018 at 12:11
