So I am creating a web-to-lead form but I'd like to use the SLDS CSS. I uploaded the SLDS zip to my Org as a public facing static resource. However, when I put it in my HTML page it's not working. (!URLFor) does work but given that this is not an Apex page (once complete) !URLFor won't work for my use case.

Currently I'm using this syntax:

    <link class="user" 
rel="stylesheet" type="text/css"/>  

How can I access the SLDS on an external website (cut and paste web-to-lead)? Do I need to host it as a static resource or is it available through the SLDS site? What is the syntax I need to reference it?

here is how I'm attempting to reference it

<apex:page standardStylesheets="false" showHeader="false" cache="false" >

   <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg" xmlns:xlink="http://www.w3.org/1999/xlink" lang="en">
            <META HTTP-EQUIV="Content-type" CONTENT="text/html; charset=UTF-8"/>

            <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="https://cdn.rawgit.com/mailtoharshit/CloudCast/master/src/salesforce-lightning-design-system-1.0.0/assets/styles/salesforce-lightning-design-system.min.css">
            <link  href="https://widoa--doalegal--c.cs33.visual.force.com/apexpages/slds/latest/assets/styles/salesforce-lightning-design-system-vf.min.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css"/>    

            <form action="https://test.salesforce.com/servlet/servlet.WebToLead?encoding=UTF-8" method="POST">

                <input type="hidden" name="captcha_settings" value='{"keyname":"myVCap","fallback":"true","orgId":"afsaf","ts":""}'/>
                <input type="hidden" name="oid" value="asdfsdf"/>
                <input type="hidden" name="retURL" value="http://www.google.com"/>

                  <div class="slds-form-element">
                    <label class="slds-form-element__label" for="first_name">First Name</label>
                    <div class="slds-form-element__control">
                        <input  id="first_name" maxlength="40" name="first_name" size="20" type="text" class="slds-input" placeholder="enter your first name"/>



This the issue was it can't be zipped. I was able to host it as a static resource: <link href="MYORG--c.na21.visual.force.com/resource/1500/SLDS_Min&‌​quot; rel="stylesheet" type="text/css"/>

  • Googling around I found a few options 1) vote for this idea success.salesforce.com/ideaView?id=0873A000000LlVWQA0 2) If you trust this source from where the CSS is served from take a look at this git github.com/mailtoharshit/CloudCast

  • I tried that git Repo and it still isn't working. Perhaps it's my syntax.

  • looks like I didn't close the <link> for the rawgit.com with </link> However, I'm a little confused as to why I can't use this as a static resource. The RAWGit CDN is a 1.0 and I can't trust the source. I wonder if the file needs to be unzipped

  • you could very well download the slds and use it as static resource(or) why take all that pain when you have <apex:slds> prebuilt for you :) lightningdesignsystem.com/platforms/visualforce
