Custom HTML Works Sometimes



I'm trying to add some text box labels to make my maps easier to read.

<style>h1 {  background-color:#282827; color: white; font-size: 400%;}</style>

Its not a very complex bit of html and it was working for a bit. All of a sudden its no longer working. Outside of PRTG the code works as intended. Not sure what's going on with it.

Hi there,

Thank you very much for your question.

I just used your HTML code above and entered it within a Custom HTML map object in the "HTML Before" section and it worked right away. You can find the map object at the very end of the right sided Properties Tree when accessing the Map designer.

That was the thing. It would work but then it would just stop. I think I figured it out though by having the text I want in one custom HTML box and all the modifiers in their own box. It seems like the custom HTML boxes are talking to each other and that it might of been a conflict caused by the communication between them.
