One of the special features which makes Mageplaza Gift Card extension stand out from others is that store admins are able to use custom CSS when designing gift card templates. This feature enables extension users to generate templates more precisely and professionally.
Edit pre-made templates using custom CSS
Mageplaza Gift Card provides up to 12 pre-made templates which are ready to be used in multiple special occasions within a year such as Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year, Valentine’s day and so on. Generally, extension users don’t need too much work for editing or redesigning our Gift Card templates. However, if you wish to change something in existing templates, it’s free to reach the template management grid by going to
Mageplaza > Gift Card: Manage Templates. Right here, you can see a bunch of ready-to-use gift card templates. Let’s click Edit.
You can perform an edit in the gift card design by clicking on the tab Design in the Information block. Generally, all the necessary fields appearing on that gift card have already been well-arranged. To use the custom CSS feature in a certain field, you can hover the mouse over the field’s area to see an arrow showing up at the left corner. Click on the icon to open the Edit Field.
You can change many values by using custom CSS such as background-color, padding, border-radius, font-size, and so on. Don’t forget to click Update to save all the custom CSS and then click Save when you finish editing.
