Creating a single stylesheet for multiple pages??

Can anyone offer suggestions on how to alter my CSS to create a new "single post" page? I'm trying to convert to Wordpress and want to maintain a single stylesheet.

Code below, but w/ broken images. http://codepen.io/tpicks/pen/lryaF

Thanks! Any questions please ask.

Do you know about external style sheets?

Could you be a bit more specific? You can definitely use just one style-sheet for your entire theme. When you make your single.php file that defines how to generate your single post pages, just to be sure to add appropriate CSS classes so that you can target them from your style-sheet.

The WordPress Codex Theme Development page is a good starting point. Have you taken a look?


I've made my homepage, but the CSS/HTML layout isn't ideal for a "post" page. So i'm thinking of just adding CSS to the same stylesheet but with different article classes for the single post page.

Tom, you can load CSS conditionally via the functions.php. This way you can say if the page is using a certain template then display a certain CSS file.

Try checking out our Linking to CSS video along with some of the WordPress conditional tags that you can use.
