Hi there,

One way to achieve this is to follow these steps here:

  • Visit your post, then right-click on the page and select Inspect Element
  • After that search for the article tag and find the ID as follows:

WordPress article id

  • Then once you have the ID you can use it to add custom CSS for that post only:
.post-8862 { 
    background-color: #FF0303;

Hope that this helps. Best, Bobby
