If you’ve ever wanted to control how a particular part of your page or posts looks without having to modify the theme files or stylesheets,
this is a simple plugin that allows you to do that.
Once installed and activated, you’ll have a new settings panel in the WordPress admin that will provide you with a text area block
where you can include any styling you’d like to use, and a second input field that allows you to insert a comma delimited list of page
or post IDs to apply these styles to.
Alternatively, you can enter ‘ALL’, and have your styles applied on every page/post.

- Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
- Visit the
CSS Overridesection of the settings menu.
- Enter the id or class style that you want to use as an override, without the style tags.
- Choose a specific page/post ID, or enter ‘ALL’, and save.
- Visit your page in the browser to view your style override in action.
- What restrictions are there on the styling you can add?
None that I can think of.
- Why isn’t the styling showing up?
Make sure that when you enter your styles in the options panel, that you haven’t included the style tags, which the plugin adds for you.
Make sure that you clear/update any caching plugin that you may be using. If you have doubts as to whether your style is being injected
in to the page, view the source of your page and look for the css you’ve supplied in the head section of the HTML for that page.
Wonderful! It was just the plugin I was looking for. Simply to use and powerful!
I just wanted to delete the background image only from the front page.
Installed, wrote down the new css, set the front page id only for the override.
DONE! (with no test to achieve the best results: it simply worked immediately!)
