    Definitively one of my fav plugins! Saved me so much time. I’m also using CSS Hero to target specific theme elements and with the combination of those plugins i’m actually in full control of everything! Thanks a lot!

    This is very handy indeed! Saves a lot of trouble when you change the theme. Thanks a lot!

    Maybe you could find a way to use the same plugin to comment out code in the theme, for more powerful customization or for example in cases that it conflicts with the new custom code.

    @Zoe, when you use this plugin to add your custom CSS tweaks, nothing gets overwritten when you upgrade. This is why we prefer that you use this plugin to apply your tweaks.

    We prefer the use of a plugin instead of the theme for the custom CSS. If you change your child theme then those CSS may get lost.

    RE: WpeStore:
    I am looking to change the look/styles of the /cart/ page. If I edit the custom.css you provided with the plugin, when I update the plugin, it will get overwritten, right? That’s no good!

    To style the look of my wpEstore plugin features, what is the difference between putting css in my child theme style sheet, vs using this WP Custom CSS plugin? thanks!

    @Frank, This plugin doesn’t do the CSS for only a particular post/page. The custom css tweak you add in this plugin will be available globally on the site. If there is a good way of doing what you are suggesting then I won’t mind looking into adding that. How does your proposed solution work?

  7. Frank Thomas says:

    Great idea for a plugin. I had created a like plugin that actually let you insert dedicated css right at the post/page level. Does your plugin do this too? If not, do you think it would be hard to add it in?



  8. admin says:

    @JK, Yes it should work with any theme.

  9. JK says:

    Hi, thank you for bringing this useful plugin. I would like to know whether this plugin supports all themes, including custom themes?

  10. admin says:

    @Chris, Peter developed it for our customers. It is not in the plugin repository yet (we will add it later).
