UL css style removed in CKEditor when revisit for editing


I'm using CK Editor and I've added a class in code view to restyle lists, eg: <ul class="check_list"> (see here After save it is fine, but if I have to revisit a page in Perch to do additional changes this CSS code has disappeared and it reverts to a standard <ul> and removes the additional code.

I've looked around the forums, but cannot find anything similar and wondered if anyone has an idea of what is happening?

CKEditor always reverts to standard formatting upon editing, stripping out any custom CSS. However, a good way around this is to set up your list in a repeater with it's own template (including your class). That way you avoid this problem altogether.

Thanks Philip,

A bit of a pain, but I guess combining a repeater with the new Blocks function it could work well!

Thanks again

Yep – you beat me too it, blocks would be perfect for it!

Or use a container element with a class, and then style lists within that container rather than styling the lists themselves.

Perfect! Thanks Drew.
