Replacing Built-in Text in AccessAlly

Some of AccessAlly’s shortcodes include “default” text that cannot be changed via the AccessAlly interface. However, you can still edit the default text with CSS.

Why you might want to replace default text

You may wish to edit the default text for a variety of reasons:

  • To use terms that your users might be more familiar with
  • To translate it into a different language entirely

In either case, you will need to use CSS to make these edits.

CSS code is an advanced method of customization. However, it also gives you the most flexibility.

If you are not comfortable working with CSS code, please confer with an experienced developer, who can help you make these changes.

Handling the Changes using CSS Code – Example

Below, you’ll see one example CSS code change that changes the AccessAlly team functionality interface, removing the words “Existing Child Accounts”.

You could use the following CSS code to make the change:

* Replace AA "Existing child accounts" text
.accessally-team-admin-management-header {
visibility: hidden;
position: relative;

.accessally-team-admin-management-header:after {
visibility: visible;
position: absolute;
top: 0;
left: 0;
content: "Current Team Members";
