Best practice? What's recommended to include an additional style sheet?

I include my additional style sheet with:


@import './documentationsidebar.less';

Is this the way to go, or what do you recommend?

I cloned Barceloneta and added it to a custom package created with plonecli. Then included my changes in ./theme/styles/theme.scss and recompiled.

Sorry, did not notice Volto... This is for Classic.

I think your approach is fine.

Well, in Plone 6 Classic UI this is no longer the way to go, since Barceloneta is a npm package now. For more read 3. Create a theme based on Barceloneta – Plone 6 Classic UI Theming — Plone Training 2022 documentation

Ouch, I stand corrected - again. That's twice in as many days :slight_smile: - thanks!

Just took a look, and discovered that in my theme there indded is no Barceloneta, just styles.scss

And... I did look at Grüesibusi back then :wink:
