• Using the Custom CSS field in RapidWeaver to make minor tweaks a theme

Time to read: 1 minute

I often get asked for help customizing themes for individual sites. Being just one person I don't have the resources or time to help with this unfortunately, but that doesn't mean you can't make minor tweaks here and there yourself!

I recently recorded a video for Realmac Software for the RapidWeaver Community site. In this video I talk about how to use the web inspector to look at the code of your site and determine what CSS you might need to adjust to make customizations to a theme.

I also look at doing those modifications, through custom CSS, within the Page Inspector in RapidWeaver. This keeps your customizations separate from the theme itself, and future-proofs your changes in case the theme is updated by the developer down the line.

Remember that when you make changes to the CSS of a theme through these small code customizations you’re taking things into your own hands. Changes to a theme’s code is not something that is covered by 3rd-party developers. That custom code you’re writing is your code and you’ll need to be able to troubleshoot it and maintain it.
