So I dug into the CSS editor b/c I was interested in making a couple of tweaks (I wanted to remove the “Next” and “Previous” tabs at the bottom of the site they’re way too thick, and I wanted to make the author’s gravitar to appear square in the author’s bio instead of as a circle). Anyway I stopped b/c I saw an error message that scared me. It might be some plugins I added or something, but I wasn’t sure if it was a security measure to prevent people from modifying CSS on the free version. Is it possible to modify the CSS on the free version, or is that only something you can do with the Pro version? The error message I got is below:
There are 3 errors which must be fixed before you can update this file.
 Update anyway, even though it might break your site?July 15, 2018 at 12:24 pm #149425
@joshua : If you would like to make changes to your site with additional css. Login to your WordPress Admin, go to Appearance => Customize => Additional css an add the desired css.
You should never edit your theme files directly. The additional css feature is available in both Pro and Free version.

According to WordPress support, You must have either WordPress.com Premium or WordPress.com Business active on your site to be able to add custom CSS to your site.
There is CSS editor plugin available for WordPress which you can give a try if you work around the error without breaking your site.
