  • Hi Everyone,

    I am creating a website where I want the index page to be designed differently than the secondary pages. How do I separate the CSS code for the index page from the rest of the CSS code? Do I just separate it out with comments?

    Sorry, I am just not sure how to organize the coding.

    Thanks for your time!

    Add the body_class() function within your <body> HTML element.

    You can then identify pages with their page id classes.

    Great, thank you. I know it’s a really basic question, but it’s my first website I’m trying to do with WordPress and I’m basically styling/designing from scratch.

    Much appreaciated!

    One way of doing it would be creating two different stylesheets and loading them through a conditional test. Not sure if you are PHP savvy but that is one way. Using comments is also another way of separating the code and is a great way of documenting why you did what you did for future reference.

    Hi Jose,

    No I’m not very PHP savvy, only slightly familiar…thanks for the tip though, I will maybe learn in the future. Thanks again!
