Making Style Changes Easier Using a Visual CSS Editor

Even though you use the same Word­Press theme that already hosts a bunch of oth­er web­sites across the world, this doesn’t mean you need to fol­low the same visu­al path. You can tune it on your per­son­al­i­ty and cre­ate a web­site that grabs the right kind of atten­tion.  We sug­gest you play around with the theme’s option and start from there, but if you want more than that, you can start cus­tomiz­ing every ele­ment from your web­site.

In this arti­cle, we will show you the eas­i­est way pos­si­ble of mak­ing spe­cif­ic style changes — by using CSS Hero plu­g­in. The truth is that one of the chal­lenges you could face while edit­ing your site’s design is sim­ply know­ing how to find the cor­rect selec­tor to use. Using this plu­g­in, you don’t need to know CSS and or write any line of code. Every­thing is made sim­ple by point and click.

Step 1 — Install CSS Hero plugin

In just a few words, CSS Hero plu­g­in is a pow­er­ful tool that allows you to make quick and visu­al changes to your web­site in no time, even if you’re a begin­ner, have zero knowl­edge about CSS or you are a Mas­ter in CSS.

Here’s what you need to do:

  • Go to CSS Hero web­site and choose the plan that suits your needs bet­ter.
  • Down­load the plu­g­in on your com­put­er.
  • Go to your Word­Press Dash­board to Plu­g­ins → Add New
  • Upload CSS Hero plu­g­in and acti­vate it.

Now, even if you are on the back­end or the fron­tend of your web­site, just click on Edit with CSS Hero tab from the admin tool­bar and you’ll get the inter­face of the plugin’s live edi­tor.

Step 2 — Make the Right Visual Tweaks

First of all, please keep in mind that you can use this CSS Hero plu­g­in to cus­tomize the appear­ance of any Word­Press theme you have. It works by allow­ing you to quick­ly add your CSS styles, which, in turn, offers you the free­dom to over­ride the default styles of your theme. No wor­ries about the code gen­er­at­ed when you make these changes — a sep­a­rate stylesheet is auto­mat­i­cal­ly cre­at­ed so you will not lose your work when updat­ing the theme. Every­thing is made easy for you.

By using sim­ple con­trol, you can man­age in real-time the changes that you’re mak­ing. This way, you will skip unpleas­ant sur­pris­es by the end of the jour­ney. Make sure that you have a clear goal when you start work­ing with this plu­g­in, and you know where you are head­ing to your web­site.

The only rea­son why we rec­om­mend CSS Hero is that we test­ed and it works beau­ti­ful­ly. We’ve been thrilled by the eas­i­est of using it when mak­ing style cus­tomiza­tions. More­over, we’re always inter­est­ed in find­ing solu­tions that are easy to use and don’t require mas­sive cod­ing knowl­edge. Learn more about this plu­g­in on CSS Hero web­site.
