You don’t need a child theme in order to add custom CSS to your WordPress theme. If all you need is to add custom CSS, there is a quicker, easier way.

Child themes are only needed when you want to change .php files or add custom functions.


The easiest way to add custom CSS is with the WordPress built-in Customizer. Since WordPress 4.7, you can add custom CSS to your WordPress site, very easily.

  1. In your WordPress dashboard, go to Appearance –> Customize.
  2. Click on the “Additional CSS” tab.
  3. Enter or paste your custom CSS in the box.
  4. Click “Save & Publish”.

You can even preview how the CSS styles appear before you click “Save & Publish”. When you paste or type custom CSS here, you’ll be able to live preview it in the side window.
