Page Specific Stylesheets

Description

What’s It Do?

This plugin adds a box to your pages and posts allowing for page-specific or post-specific CSS stylesheets.

Why Use It?

After developing quite a few WordPress websites, it seems to me that the style.css file gets bloated. If you add a style used on only one page, and then later that page is deleted, you’re visitors now have to download those styles that aren’t even used. It’s wasteful, but maintaining a clean style.css file requires an active effort. This plugin solves that by attaching the these styles to the page or post, allowing them to be updated just like the content is and deleted with the page.

It keeps your style.css file clean and reduces unused style clutter.

What About Efficiency?

There shouldn’t be an issue with overhead from the plugin. Admin code is only executed in the admin panel and front end code is executed on the front end. If you’re website has a large amount of page-specific styles within it that can be migrated into the plugin, it can boost performance by reducing the download size of your style.css file.

Roadmap

This plugin will receive ongoing maintenance as WordPress evolves. No major features are planned, but I am entirely open to feature requests!

Feel free to suggest any feature you desire, or check out the code or contribute on GitHub, where the project is hosted.

  • Additional plugin options.

If you have a feature idea, suggest it.

Notes

  • Style data and options are not deleted by default on uninstall. You must check the options on the plugin settings page to enable the deletion of this data.

Installation

Extract the zip file and just drop the contents in the wp-content/plugins/ directory of your WordPress installation and then activate the Plugin from Plugins page.

FAQ

Q. How do I use it?

A. Simply install and activate the plugin. It will automatically add an additional box for CSS to be typed that will be injected into the page or post.

Q. How do I add the CSS box to custom post type?

A. The plugin has a settings page. You can check/uncheck various post types to enable to style editor box.

Q. Is there some way to format the CSS in the box to be easier to read?

A. Sure. There is an optional (disabled by default) ability to enable a “Fancy” Editor. This includes line numbers, highlighting, and some basic auto-complete. Right now, you have to enable this manually using the filter below. Note: The ability to toggle this will be built into a settings page that is coming in the next release or so.

Filter (copy and paste into your themes functions.php file):
function enable_fancy_editor() {
return true;
}
add_filter(‘pss_fancy_editor’, ‘enable_fancy_editor’);

Q. Why is the Fancy Editor disabled by default?

A. There are known plugin conflicts with many other plugins that utilize CodeMirror, the same utility used in the Fancy Editor. I am looking to remedy these conflicts but some of them are out of my control.

Q. How do I use auto-complete in the editor?

A. While typing a CSS property or value, you have to press Ctrl+Space. This will activate the auto-complete popup.

Reviews

Very handy!

Thank you for this plugin. It saves me a lot of headaches. I hope you will update it!

Good Idea, but …

Your Plugin is very useful. But I encountered a big nasty bug.

If I clean autosaves and postrevisions all my added styles are gone. All of them on every page and post. So beware, if you use this plugin.

Tyler,please consider a bugfix!
