Ways to Add Your Custom CSS to MetaSlider

If you have ended up here, then there is a good chance we have instructed you to add some CSS to your themes style.css file in order to fix a MetaSlider styling issue.

Editing your theme’s style.css file is not strictly the only way to get some custom CSS into your site, you have a few options which we’ll go through below.


Option #1. Editing your theme’s style.css file

This is probably the fastest way to get some custom CSS onto your site, but should only be used if you have created a child theme. If you have not created a child theme, and do not wish to make one, then take a look at option #2 or #3 instead.

  • Go to Appearance > Editor and select “style.css” from the list of files on the right. This will load up the style.css file into the editor.
  • At the bottom of the file, on a new line, paste in the custom CSS.
  • Save the file.
  • Remember to clear any WordPress cache plugins (W3 Total Cache, WP Super Cache etc), and clear your browser cache in order to see your changes.

Option #2. Using your theme’s “Custom CSS” option

Depending on your theme, you may have a “Custom CSS’ option. Take a look under the “Appearance” menu, or maybe in the Theme Settings. If you have this option then you should use it.

Paste in the custom CSS and Save.


Option #3. Using the ‘Simple Custom CSS plugin

Install ‘Simple Custom CSS’ by going to Plugins > Add New, and searching for “Simple Custom CSS”.

After installation, go to Appearance > Edit CSS and paste in your custom CSS.
