The plugin let you customize every property of your WordPress themes with an easy and intuitive point and click tool. You can easily adjust each and every element of your WordPress sites without coding.
I’ve played around with some Hero ready themes, and what I have seen I am very impressed.
This may change how we can customize WordPress themes in a relatively simple manner.
There is, of course, a learning curve on how best to apply and visually customize the elements. But it’s really fun and creative WordPress plugins that you just want to test more and more.
CSS Hero is a startup company that developed this WordPress plugin and the official release date has been announced for the 15th of January 2014. I think it can be a big hit. The plugin is supposed to be a powerful yet light tool to change and customize a website design live and minimizing time spent for users doing repetitive tasks.

When starting to test the functions, you quickly realize that there are endless possibilities to adjust each element of your WordPress sites without no knowledge whatsoever about coding.

What can you do with the CSS Hero WordPress Plugin?
There are tons of features and options that make it easy for a novice, as well as professional users. Editing and customize themes using CSS can be a nightmare for many people. CSS Hero will ease that part considerably. As I mentioned earlier, there are lots of features but three key features are:
