WordPress: How to add or edit CSS

WordPress 4.7 now includes the option to add custom CSS via the Customizer screen. You can access this by going to ‘Appearance > Customize’ then clicking the ‘Additional CSS’ tab near the bottom of the options on the left of the screen. It is recommended that you use this instead of our custom option below.

You can make changes to your site’s appearance by using CSS. If you’re not sure what CSS is, you can read more about this at http://www.w3schools.com/css.

If you’d like to change specific styling in your theme, you can either choose to create a Child Theme or add any CSS statements you like to the box on pipdig > Custom CSS as shown below:

Any CSS you add to this option will be kept if you update your theme in future.

    Hi there!

    I have an issue on my blog I’m trying to resolve but can’t seem to fix.

    When I view a blog post, below the title header and pages header, there is a line of text which links the catergory archive (i think), the title of the blog and the title of the page it’s from.

    Any help on this would be greatly appreciated!

    Many thanks

      Hi Emily, it looks like you’ve set a static homepage. If you remove those options it will revert back to the default behaviour of showing your blog posts on the homepage instead.

      Edit: I think I misunderstood what you meant. If you mean this – https://cl.ly/1N3b1n3X0l1x – then it is created by the Yoast SEO plugin. You’ve enabled the “Breadcrumbs” option.
