Easiest way to add that CSS needed to my site

Simple, easy, and intuitive. What more could I ask for? Tom Usborne does a phenomenal job of creating a Theme, but equally as impressive is this plugin. It works with any theme and thus allows me to go directly to one place to add all my CSS. Thanks, Tom!

Fantastic

Should have posted this before…thought I had. For a beginner like myself, CSS is terrifying….this plug in makes it easy.

Very nice plugin

This is very nice plugin i have use this plugin in my several website .. Really you are giving good job keep it up bro

Love love love.

I was using another similar plugin, but the search function (which I use a lot in admin) stopped working (Ctrl + f). So I tried this one. I love the color coding 🙂

The only issue that I have is – with the previous css plugin that I was using, when using inspection tools in Chrome and FF, I could see exactly which line the in the file the css was coming from. It was then easy to go to that line in the file to make adjustments.

Otherwise though, I have been switching to your plugin each time I log into my clients’ sites to do work on them.

Thanks so much 🙂
