    Hi,

    I want to reduce the size of custom CSS from the theme.

    Like right now I have added some additional CSS codes from the theme customization option.

    But i want to add these css codes to the theme editor by editing css files of the theme.

    So that it doesn’t affect my website speed.

    Thanks.

    Hi,

    You can try either:

    Manually copy the CSS in your Additional CSS in the customizer and then place it back in minified format.

    Or,

    Get a plugin that does that for you. Optimization plugins usually does the job as they minify, aggregate (combine all CSS into 1 file) and cache it.

    A wise man once said:
    "Have you cleared your cache?"

    Hi Elvin,

    Thanks for the reply i am already using the optimization plugin and CDN also and minify CSS, js are checked.

    But i don’t want to use additional css instead i directly want to make changes to my theme.

    Is it possible?

    Thanks.

    Hi there,

    i am only seeing a few lines of CSS in your Additional CSS. Moving that inside a stylesheet would have no noticeable performance improvement. If you had 100’s of lines then i would say otherwise.

    Most cache plugins have an option to aggregate inline CSS which would move it into the combined CSS cached file.

    Hi David,

    Thanks, i got it but can you tell me for the future case if I get a 100’s of line then where to put in the stylesheet and how?

    Thanks

    You would need to install a Child Theme and add your CSS to the child themes style sheet. More info on child themes here:
