WordPress style.css

WordPress Theme Development

  • The style.css file is required and contains the WordPress Theme File Header formatted as a standard CSS doc-block comment.
  • Only the Theme Name and Template are required for WP to detect and use a theme, however a standard theme usually comes with a Description, Author, and Version as well. If you plan to publish your theme you will need to add more info.
