Access to Developer Tools - CSS, Head & Body JS

Developer tools allow you to add custom CSS and JS code to your site. The tools are not available by default, so here are the steps to gain access: Note: Only Owner and Admin roles can access the Settings panel. If you are a Contributor, you will need to ask the site Admin to grant you Developer permissions.

Note: These are only available for the PRO and CUSTOM pricing tier for liveBooks.  For more info on our pricing structures click here.  If you have another plan and would like to upgrade, please contact the support team at

Here are the steps to gain access:

1. Select the Settings icon in the gray navigation bar.

2. Click on Users & Roles subheader under Settings.

3. Select the edit link next to the user email you want to grant access to.


4. Check the Developer box and select Save.


5. Refresh the Dashboard in your browser. You should now see an additional Developer icon in your Dashboard navigation bar (the box with arrows next to the gear icon).
Additionally, if you are wanting to add a new user with access to Developer tools, simply add the user as normal, enter in their email address, and select the same "Developer" box to grant them access to the tool.
CSS & Javascript overwrites any changes made in the design tool.  We suggest that you consult with our support team before making any significant changes.
