Hi, I installed a Custom CSS Manager plugin to my Spun theme and it is there that I am recording modifications to my css (thanks Andrew). I have two related questions:
1. Does using this plugin replace the need for creating a Child Theme in my ftp folders?
2. I’d like to modify other things that are not in this css (such as footer.php, header.php). Can I do this using the plugin? Or must I go into my files and set up a Child Theme?
Keep in mind that I’m on one huge learning curve here. 😉
A Custom CSS plugin is a substitute for a Child Theme for CSS-only modifications.
A Child Theme creates an environment where you can make any modification you want (including CSS).
You needn’t have both a Child Theme and Custom CSS plugin – however if you do the only issue you may face is the organisation of your CSS. It’ll probably mean your CSS will be in 2 places and that may mean your CSS is more difficult to manage
