Remove CSS applied via microthemer

I have applied some custom css via microthemer but would rather like to use a snippets plugin to manage the generated code instead.

How do I undo the code applied via microthemer?


Hey Gregory,

Option 1

You can simply deactivate Microthemer. Just make sure you also remove any code you may have added to your theme’s functions.php file to load the CSS manually. If Microthemer’s active-styles.css stylesheet is still loading after deactivated Microthemer, that could be why.

Option 2

As an alternative. Once you’ve safely copied your CSS from:


Or (if you haven’t yet published the CSS changes) from:


You can reset all the styles Via Settings > History > Reset everything. But before you do that, you might want to save the most recent history item permanently. You can do that from the All revisions option below the history summary (see save icon on right hand side of the screen that pops up). Then you can always back and edit on MT.

BTW, in a future 7.x update you will be able to conditionally apply folder CSS to certain pages of your site.

I hope that helps. Please let me know if you have any further questions.

Hi Sebastian,

Thanks for the response. I don’t want to delete theme over. I want to keep using it. I just want to undo all CSS applied via theme over. From now on, I will generate the code on theme over and copy it to a snippet plugin so that I can sort all my changes to the site. So I will not be publishing with theme over, just creating CSS.

So how do I undo the applied CSS with the idea that I am not deleting the plugin at all.


OK, so go with Option 2 above, and if you are not publishing your changes you would copy the css from draft-styles.css.
