Hi Margaret,

Thanks for the feedback on the CSS tutorial :)

Those are great questions…here are some answers!

1) Yes I believe putting CSS in Canvas will get overiden when you update the theme (i’m not 100% sure because i don’t do it this way)

2) It’s an easy way to put your custom css into (but not the best)

3) Yes Jetpack works in the same way as a child theme – but Jetpack is restricted to only CSS whereas in a child theme you could add custom php and other customisations.

4) Yes if you are only modifying CSS then Jetpack is a good solution and you can forget about the other 2.

Working on WordPress is always more fun that watching TV :)

Onwards and upwards,
jamie
