What is a Custom CSS editor?
The custom CSS editor is a unique feature of the theme. Using this you can make changes in the appearance of the theme without actually opening and changing the CSS files. All you need to do is to open the Custom CSS editor and paste here the class along with the values to the attributes you want to change.
Custom CSS will overwrite the code in the .css file according to the newly defined class and its attribute.
Advantages of using Custom CSS
• Easy to apply changes
• Changes to the .css file will be overridden when you take the theme update. Changes applied through the CSS editor will not be overwritten.
