Dictum includes a child theme to make the updates easier. If you are planning to do several CSS changes, it is highly recommendable to do these changes inside a Child Theme, so you will never lose these changes. The steps are pretty simple:
- Upload dictum.zip into wp-admin -> appearance.
- Activate Dictum.
- After activated, you must upload dictum-child.zip into wp-admin -> appearance.
- You can edit whatever CSS you want or PHP into functions.php.
