Developers plugin page

Quick Style Editor plugin.



  1. Login to your wordpress dashboard.
  2. Go to ‘Plugins’, ‘Add New’ then search for ‘quick style editor’.
  3. Follow the on screen instructions
  4. Use the ‘Edit Styles’ link on the plugins page.


How do I edit the styles?

Add your style properties to the boxes on the form.

How can I see the changes?

Just go your website and you will see the updated styles.

How can I revert to my original styles?

Uncheck the ‘Use the style editor’ box and save. This won’t lose your styles, it just ignores them when you view your site.

Why don’t my styles work?

There could be loads of reasons. Your theme may not support this style, it may not be correctly formatted, your browser could be playing up, id and class names might be different. The plugin is just a testing platform, it’s not a replacement for your theme stylesheet.

Can you add more styles?

Yes. Just goto the plugin page and post a comment or send me a message.
