Welcome, CSS Hero 1.2

Posted December 20, 2014 by mat

Today here at the CSS Hero headquarters we’re pretty excited as we’re announcing a major plugin upgrade that we feel it’s our first step on the way to make Hero working on any WordPress Theme.

Among some other highly awaited improvements such as native SSL, a rewritten saving logic and the new !important statement we’re happy to introduce you Rocket Mode!

Rocket Mode is the way to make edits possible also on non-hero ready Themes without having to provide any kind of configuration.
This feature is still in beta mode so we recommend using it carefully and being a bit patient with it.

What’s in the pack?

  • !important support for overriding theme settings
  • Native SSL support
  • Beta “Rocket Mode” selection”. Unsupported themes can be edited with CSS Hero without configuration; this mode will basically parse the Theme’s CSS and define appropriate selectors. It can definitely help getting started where a configuration file is not provided and the user does not want to manually enter the selectors.
  • Lighter memory footprint, no options autoload at all.

CSS Hero 1.2 is available for download in every loyal user’s dashboard. You can just log-in and upgrade now.


As all times with software updates, we recommend you to backup your site before doing anything. We do our best to ensure the smoothest upgrade process, but the usual caveats apply. Simple backup solutions like the WpClone Wp Plugins or the cPanel backup feature can be your friends.
