    I was playing around with my CSS today and noticed the link we used to have to the original CSS template is no longer there. Or perhaps I’ve overlooked it. Where do I go now to see the original code/template?

    The blog I need help with is piedtype.com.

    I can’t remember where the link is now on the page but here’s the direct link https://wpcom-themes.svn.automattic.com/themorningafter/style.css

    Thank you. I’ll make a note of that. I’m pretty sure the link is gone.

    Please forgive me for not searching for the thread that states where it is. I’m running jobs for my contracted work on another computer and I have to be vigilant right now.

    Sometimes the best way to review CSS is to use your built in browser tools. Most modern browsers have them built in. Try right-clicking an element on the page and look for something like an “Inspect Element” option. It will show you the HTML for the element you clicked as well as all of the CSS that applies to it.

    You can still reach the theme’s stylesheet from your Appearance → Custom Design → CSS page, click “Edit” next to “Mode: Add-on.” However, note that you should not copy the entire stylesheet into your CSS editor. We found that a lot of CSS beginners were copying and pasting the entire stylesheet into Add-on mode which caused them trouble if they weren’t advanced enough with CSS to know how to adjust it for a new location.

    @designsimply Thanks. I see it now. I just hadn’t dug that far down for fear of wrecking my own code.
