First let me say, I really enjoy this module.  I'm a newbie to all of this so please take this question at that.
Is there anyway to change the title style? 
For example on  
The Title font is different then the description.  I'm sure there is a tag that will help with this, could you point me in the direction of the page that I need to edit for this?

Best Regards

Sure, the Repository module is 'template' based, which means it uses external 'template' files to control the formatting of the output.

Templates are stored in the /DesktopModules/Repository/Templates folder and each template is in a sub-folder, so the 'default' template is in the default folder, etc.

Each part of the Repository is controlled by a pair of files, for example, the header is controlled by the header.html and header.xml files,  and the main display part is controlled by the template.html and template.xml files.

The .html file controls the layout and contains HTML tags and special Repository tags. The Title of a Repository item is positioned in the template.html file using the [TITLE] tag. The .xml files allow you to assign attributes to the tags that are present in the .html file, so to change the formatting of the [TITLE] tag, you would edit the [TITLE] token in the template.xml file and add or change the CssClass Setting.

The default stylesheet class for the [TITLE] tag is "Head". If you wanted to use the 'SubHead" attribute for the title, add a Setting named CssClass and set the value to SubHead. Look in the template.xml file and you'll see what I mean.

if you want to define your own special stylesheet class to use for a tag, you can add the .class definition to your portal's portal.css file, or your skin's skin.css file, or even place the definition inline by adding it to the header.html file then setting your custom class as the CssClass value for the [TITLE] tag.

Steve, I have a custom template located in \portals\<>\repositorytemplates\ and I'm trying to style the upload button text to red in the header.xml file because the white text doesn't go well with the background color that comes with the skin. I'm using the "tidy" skin. Anyway, here is how I'm trying to style the button within the XML and it's not working:

What am I doing wrong?
