    umbraco user identity css component

    Hello Forum,

    I have a rather simple question, is it possible to make a css component in my main.css class or a similar solution, according to the user identity

    i am not really a fan of having a lot of stying inside of my views if i can avoid it

    Example of my .cshtml

    @if (User.Identity.Name.Equals("TV"))
           .dataTables_filter, .dataTables_info, .dataTables_length, 
           .dataTables_paginate {
            display: none;
        .card-body {
            padding: 0 5px;
        h2 {
            font-size: 15px;
        th, td, tr {
            font-size: 10px;
        .btn-circle {
            width: 10px;
            height: 10px;
            text-align: center;
            padding: 3px 0;
            font-size: 6px;
            line-height: 1;
            border-radius: 10px;

    css files are "flat" files - they are (normally) not processed by the server.

    I would suggest you embed your custom styles as done in your example.

    In the past I have often added classes to the html (or other element) to handle situations like that.

    <html class="[email protected]">

    And then prefix your styles with that in your main.css file

    .user_XXXX .dataTables_filter { ... }

    This is how I handle these situations: Add all your classes to your CSS file. They are not processed by the server.

    In the view, add something like this:

        string class = "some css classes"
            class+=" TV_user_specific_class";
    <div class="@class">My content</div>

    Your CSS file shoud look like this:
