CSS & JavaScript Toolbox

Description

CSS & JavaScript Toolbox (or CJT) is a code management plugin that gives you the tools to customise the functionality and appearance of your website.

CJT is great for

  • streamlining development work
  • adding free or premium scripts
  • creating and testing your own scripts
  • adding front-end customisations
  • modifying themes
  • adding tracking code
  • teaching or learning how to code
  • and a million more uses

Why Upgrade?

Fully responsive user interface
Works on tablets and even mobile phones so you can code on the go!
Functions are now kept in one place called Panels
Coding has never been easier or more enjoyable
Higher performance and security tweaks
Works flawlessly with the latest version of WordPress
Plenty of premium features and tools

We want everyone to upgrade so we have created affordable pricing options. Learn about the new CJT CORE and CJT PLUS.

How does it work?

CJT is extremely flexible and versatile. Since it was designed to be easy, adding scripts and styles can be done in as little as two steps:
– adding your code directly into unique CJT code blocks
– assigning where these code blocks go

CJT code blocks can be assigned to pages, posts, custom posts, categories, URLs, expressions, and practically anywhere you want on your website. Code block shortcodes can also provide you with further placement accuracy.

Support Us

The CSS & JavaScript Toolbox project is 100% developed and maintained by only two people since the very beginnings in August 2011. We have plenty of feature ideas that we want to introduce and this can only be possible with funding.

You can also support us by providing a feedback review and rating on WordPress.org, and spreading the word and recommending CJT to others.

FAQ

Why was the CJT plugin developed and what is it used for?

The CJT plugin was created to help website authors write their own code. The plugin allows you to contribute to your WordPress installation code via a simple web interface, where you can modify and extend the functionality and appearance of your website by writing code directly into CJT code blocks. A typical example of using the plugin can include changing the the way a specific WordPress page is displayed, or making a page more interactive by adding some JavaScript (Dynamic HTML).

What is a CJT ‘code block’?

The CJT code block is the basic unit for writing code and to associate it with specific WordPress requests.

What is the Assignment Panel?

The Assignment Panel is a tabs window, which appears on the right side of the code block editor and is used to assign/apply the code block into specific requests.

Can you select more than one item from the Assignment Panel?

Yes. You can select any number of items you need, there is no limitation regarding this.

Can you assign multiple blocks to the same items from the Assignment Panel?

Yes. It’s one of the most useful features that CJT supports as it allows you to manage/split your codes into several code blocks, allowing you to override code in a former (or lower ordered) code block.

What is Pages, Posts, Categories and Custom Posts tabs?

These lists with checkboxes represent all of your WordPress Pages, Posts, Categories and Custom Posts that your entire website contains. It also supports subpages and sub-categories, which you will also find in there.

What is the Auxiliary tab?

As there are a number of requests that are not available as normal WordPress items (e.g. Pages, Posts, etc) but since it’s commonly required and most likely be used, you will find them pre-defined in the Auxiliary tab. In the Auxiliary tab you can find pages like: Home, Blog Index, Author, 404 error, Tag, Archive, Entire website, Front-end, Admin backend and much more!

Is it better to use the URLs tab, or select items if found through other tabs?

Pages, Posts, Custom Posts and Categories tabs are created to simplify the assignment process for all types of users. Using URLs is great for fast performance as it requires less time to evaluate/identify the request! However, not all things can be done through the URLs tab. For example, applying a single block to a Category index page and all its sub-categories.

What is the Advanced Expressions tab?

The Advanced Expression tab allows you to fully control what requests to integrate into the code block by using Regular Expressions. In other words, allowing CJT users to define more requests to assign the code block to.

Can I move the blocks around?

Yes by hovering your mouse cursor over the code block title bar until it turns into a four-sided arrow, this allow you to move the blocks. Clicking the block title bar allows you to open and close the blocks.

Is block saved after I click ‘Create’ in ‘Create New Code Block’ form?

Yes. The block is created and saved in your database. In order to discard the block, you have to delete it.

Is block orders immediately saved after drag-and-drop block box?

No. In order to save blocks order you need to press ‘Save All Changes’ button.

Is block immediately deleted after removed from the blocks list page?

No. After delete block you need to click ‘Save All Changes’ button.

I’m using the URLs tab and my code is not working?

Make sure you have copied and pasted the Page, Post, or Category URL exactly as it appears in the address bar. For example, you may have inadvertently included an extra forward slash at the end of your URL.

Why use the Footer switch in Location/Hook?

Hook location feature gives you control over the location of outputting the CSS/JS code. This is useful in case overriding another plugins’ CSS is required. Also sometimes its better to put your JS code in the footer to avoid slowing down your page load.

I received a weird error, what do I do now?

Due to the overwhelming amount of emails we get for users requesting support for our CJT plugins, we cannot provide support for the CJT Free plugin (hosted here on WordPress.org) at this stage unfortunately. If you wish to receive priority support, please visit our CJT website and purchase a license for any of our products.

Reviews

Great plugin

Great plugin and I see a lot of room for improvement.

Want to contribute but have no idea how. @wipeoutmedia

My github: https://github.com/QwertyZW

Excellent

This plugin does exactly what I was looking for, so simple and effective.
Congratulations to the authors!

Reliable way to insert code

This plugin hasn’t been updated in a while — so I hope that is fixed soon. For a plugin like this that you rely on, it should be updated more often to confirm compatibility with new versions of WordPress.

That being said — it’s continued to work great. I’m a happy buyer of the Pro version of this software and rely on this plugin greatly to insert PHP, CSS, javascript code, etc easily in WordPress posts.
