Custom Design »CSS Support in Live Chat

Custom Design, which is a feature of WordPress.com Premium and WordPress.com Business, comes with a CSS editor that you can use to customize the appearance of any WordPress.com theme. The upgrade allows you to add custom CSS to override parts of your theme’s stylesheet bit by bit or you can start new by building a new design from scratch. You may not edit HTML or PHP code, but there is an amazing potential to what you can do with CSS-only edits.

If you have one of our plans listed above you have access to our live chat support and may wish to ask one of our Happiness Engineers for assistance with your CSS customizations. Since CSS is a language and can be very complex for specific customizations, we have put in place a list of customizations we can help with over live chat.

The following can be covered in live chat:

Site Header

  • Size
  • Color

Page Titles (applies to all posts / pages on site)

  • Size
  • Color
  • Visibility
  • Alignment

Post details (date, category, author, and tags)

  • Visibility

Footer

  • Color
  • Size
  • Add Copyright
