WordPress CSS Customizer – Using the DevTools and CSS to customize your theme – Practical examples

WordPress themes nowadays are usually packed with appearance options which allow theme users to give a personal note of style to their websites and modify them at their will, without touching a single line of code.

Our themes here at CSSIgniter carry dozens and dozens of color and typography customizer settings and for the vast majority of use cases they are more than enough to completely change a website’s appearance. However, there are still times that we get support tickets requiring help on more involved customizations, and we deal that by providing custom styles for our users’ requests on a case by case scenario.

For a few versions now, the WordPress Customizer comes with a powerful native CSS editor which allows anyone to apply custom CSS styles on their WordPress website. This post is aimed at entry-level website owners who are curious enough to delve a bit more into browser developer tools and how to use them, along with the CSS editor, in order to customizer their WordPress theme beyond its delivered capabilities. Although I assume that basic browser developer tools familiarity exists, I’ll give a quick intro on them below.
