[resolved] Is JetPack Style Sheet Editor an alternative to a Child Theme? (3 posts)

    Hi

    Please could someone advise me if JetPack Style Sheet Editor is an alternative to a Child Theme? i.e. does it modify the styling and layout of a parent theme without editing the files of the parent theme itself, in the way a child theme does?

    regards

    John

    Yes. Similar to a child theme, Jetpack Style Sheet Editor allows you to modify the CSS without modifying the themes (or plugin's) CSS files directly. There are many other reasons for using a child theme but if all you want to do is modify the CSS then Jetpack may be the way to go :)
