- Stylesheet

The stylesheet of the application form sometimes blocks certain options of the Flipbase page, like the stop button. This can be adjusted in the Connexys Setup > Application settings > All Settings > Application form > Stylesheet.

This can be fixed by removing this part of the CSS:

         body .searchApplyDone li:before {

         content: counter(item) ". ";

         counter-increment: item;

         color: #XXXX ;


For changing the standard Flipbase colors you can add this code to the Stylesheet:

        .flipbase-btn-large, .flipbase-btn-single, .flipbase-icon:hover{

        background-color: #XXXX*!important;

 *add Color HTML code

- Duration of the videos

It's not that easy to change the duration of the videos. For this you need to submit a (billable) change request to both Flipbase and Connexys.
