How to Edit the theme CSS?

  1. I am unable to find the link to the built-in css of the theme. I am currently using the Oulipo theme but would like to edit/add some css. However, I don't see any link to go and edit it. Is it possible in the first place to edit and if yes where do I go and do some changes to fit my requirement? Basically I want to hide the tags listing from the posts in my blog but would like to keep them hidden and not remove at all.

    Thanks

    The blog I need help with is mandeepdeka.wordpress.com.

  2. To change the CSS, you have to have the Custom Design Upgrade which also includes the ability to use the entire Typekit online font library for your site if you should wish to change any fonts used.

    At wordpress.COM, you aren't really editing the existing CSS, you are creating rules and declarations to override or add to the original CSS. That means that when making CSS changes or additions, you add to the CSS edit window only the specific selectors and the specific declarations that you are adding or changing. Anything that is not changing should not be put into the CSS edit window.

    CSS is done at appearance > custom design > css. There is a preview function that WordPress has provided which allows you to get all your changes figured out before you buy the upgrade.

  3. Thanks. That answers my question. so I have no way of editing the theme css unless I upgrade to custom css.

  4. You are welcome and that is correct.

    What exactly were you wanting to do? For some of the simpler things, we may have some workarounds.
