  • I have an existing website with on and just installed the FREE Adelle template. I’d like to edit and add CSS code but can only do so by purchasing the $30 Adelle template. I’m not sure where to find this version for purchase & I’m also not sure if I can incorporate it into a blog that already exists in Is this possible?

  • The $30 design upgrade only applies to sites on WordPress.COM. If you have a self-hosted WordPress.ORG site, you can change anything you want – CSS or otherwise.

    The best way to make CSS changes is by using a Child Theme or Custom CSS plugin so that your changes won’t be lost when the theme is updated.

    Can I still change CSS using the free Adelle template in, specifically?
    I have tried a few lines of code & nothing is updating. There is space for code however no updates generate.
    Thanks so much for your help so far.

    PS the blog I’m working on is

    Yes – you should be able to change the CSS – what are you trying to change and what code did you try? Did you clear your browser cache after making the change?

    To begin with, I am trying to get rid of the zigzigs in the widget on the right sidebar using the following code:
    .widget {
    background: none;

    I did not clear the browser cache. Apologies for sounding ignorant – how do I do that? I’m on a Macbook.

    Your CSS selector is not correct – the best way to find the right one is using a browser tool like Firebug – try this:

    .side-widget {
        background-image: none;

    To clear a browser cache, just force refresh – Command R a few times.

    That worked! Thank you so much. The right code always helps!

    You’re welcome – and you didn’t have to pay $30 either :)!
