To apply these CSS to changes to your stream

You'll need to use the embed code template with the custom changes in order to apply the unique styling to your front-end experience. 

To locate the customized embed code:

  • Go into your stream
  • Navigate to Setup > Templates > Embed (or Pinboard if using that visualization)
  • Find and click the name of the custom template you created with CSS
  • The embed code will appear on the right side of the screen
  • Embed this code into your content management system (CMS)
  • The embedded experience will obey the CSS styling your applied to the template
