Modular Custom CSS

Manage and live-preview theme-specific and plugin-specific Custom CSS in the Customizer.

Where is the Custom CSS Stored?

Theme CSS is stored as a theme_mod, meaning it is a theme-specific option, part of the theme_mod_$theme option in the database. Each theme has its own theme_mod for the custom CSS, so if you switch to a new theme, the theme-specific custom CSS will be empty. When you switch back to a previously customized theme, the CSS that you added to it will still be there.

Plugin CSS is stored as a regular option in the database. It is used for every theme, so it's best used for things that are plugin-related or anything else you want to persist between different themes. Most Custom CSS plugins store the CSS as an option, but that means that theme-specific CSS must be deleted and lost when you switch themes.

Why is WordPress 4.0 required?

The Customizer features many improvements in WordPress 4.0, including the textarea control type that this plugin uses.
