ISSUES WITH CREATING CUSTOM WORDPRESS DASHBOARD

  • Intro

    WordPress core, theme, and plugin developers regularly release software updates to introduce new features and address vulnerabilities. These updates reset functions.php file and CSS customization. So your customizations done through CSS and functions.php are reverted. On the other hand, the changes you make through theme changes and WordPress screen options stay.
