WordPress WordPress Theme Development Working with CSS and JS in WordPress Themes Porting Over Static Template CSS

Multiple CSS stylesheets

I'm following along this course to port my current static site into a wordpress backend. I have about 20 different css style sheets. Do I need to copy the contents of each of of these stylesheets into one mass 'style.css' file?

No you don't. Talk a look at the link, it should explain how to add your style sheets into a theme:


I hope this helps.

Hi Colin,

You don't necessarily NEED to combine all these stylesheets into one, but I would advise that you do so. When you link multiple stylesheets, a separate request has to be made for each one, so reducing this number can improve the performance of your site. If you need to have separate stylesheets to stay organized, I would recommend looking into a build too such as Gulp or Grunt, which will concatenate your CSS into one production file for you.

You rock, thanks!

Not a problem!
