    I would like to customize the shortcode [slideshow] CSS but when I place the CSS in the Custom CSS window, the CSS file for jetpack-slideshow is overriding my custom CSS.

    Any suggestions?

    @stacyduval, JetPack is supported at a separate website. We volunteers here at have virtually no knowledge of the plugin. Head over to and they should be able to help you out with your styling issues.


    Try making the CSS more specific. One way might be to use a very strict selector, another would be to use the “!important” rule (although best practice says to avoid using !important if at all possible, sometimes it is warranted though).
