Can we change the formatting of the alert/notification that a page is being edited?

It's not easy to see that small alert at the top of the page when you try to edit a page that is already being edited. Is there a CSS file or something we can modify so that text is red, orange, bold, decrease the instances of people writing over people's changes?

Next time you see this warning, right click the error message in your browser and select Inspect Element. That will give you the generated CSS you need to change it. Then you can add custom CSS in your admin panel (Look and Feel > Stylesheet). Be sure to use !important at the end of each style definition you want to override, so that your custom setting takes precendence. For example:

.some-style-selector {

some-style: some-value !important;
