Scripts n Styles


This plugin allows Admin users the ability to add custom CSS and JavaScript directly into individual Post, Pages or any other registered custom post types. You can also add classes to the body tag and the post container. There is a Global settings page for which you can write Scripts n Styles for the entire blog.

Admin’s can also add classes to the TinyMCE “Formats” dropdown which users can use to style posts and pages directly. As of Scripts n Styles 3+ styles are reflected in the post editor.

Because only well trusted users should ever be allowed to insert JavaScript directly into the pages of your site, this plugin restricts usage to admin type users. Admin’s have access to even more sensitive areas by definition, so that should be relatively safe 😉

Notes about the implementation:

  • Admin users, or more specifically, any user with the manage_options and unfiltered_html capabilities (which by default is only the admin type user) can use this plugin’s functionality. Some plugins extend user rolls, and so this plugin would naturally extend include rolls that have the appropriate capability.
  • CSS Styles are embeded, not linked, at the bottom of the head element with style tags by using wp-head. If your theme doesn’t have this hook, this plugin (as well as most others) won’t work.
  • JavaScript is embeded, not linked, at the bottom of the body (or head) element with script tags by using wp-footer (or wp-head). If your theme doesn’t have this hook, this plugin (as well as most others) won’t work.
  • There is no input validation. This plugin puts exactly what you type in the meta box directly into the html with no error checking. You are an Admin, and we trust you to be carefull. Try not to break anything.
  • Do to the licensing of the libraries used, this plugin is released “GPL 3.0 or later” if you care about those things.


You’ll have better luck contacting the other if you try me on Twitter and Github. If that fails, I have an open thread on the support forums that will trigger an email.


  • Settings Page for Writing Scripts n Styles that apply to the whole blog.
  • The Scripts panel of the Meta Box.
  • The Styles panel of the Meta Box.
  • The Classes panel. Add classes to the Style dropdown!
  • Enqueue panel. You can enqueue jQuery from here if you need!
  • Your styles are reflected in the Editor.


This plugin does not require any special activation or template tags. Just get it from, install and activate like normal.


Will I lose all of my custom Styles and Scripts if I uninstall the plugin?

Yes, absolutely. YOU WLL LOSE ALL CUSTOMIZATIONS. Be sure that you do not want these customizations before you uninstall.

Why would you do that to me?

Well, because plugins are supposed to, and should be expected to clean up after themselves. If you disable and uninstall the plugin, as a developer, I am supposed to assume that you no longer want me to store all of that now useless data in your database.

Can I get around that somehow?

Sure, if you are an Admin, just go to the plugin editor and wipe out the uninstall.php and then WordPress will not delete the meta data on uninstall.


Good work

Easy installation and perfect functioning! Also works under WordPress 4.7.1 – cool!


Simple to use, simple to manage. Work like a charm.

In my list of “must to have”.

Many thanks.

I love this plugin

This is one of my favorite and most used plugins across all sites that I manage. I love how I can change the css and scripts on just one page without messing up the css on other pages. Using this plugin has allowed me to add so many different things to pages that I never thought was possible before. I strongly recommend this plugin and thank the authors for making something that is so amazing!!!!

Great plugin, here's how to add scripts to individual pages

Great plugin!

Spent some time finding out how to add scripts to an individual page thought, because the metabox is hidden by default. The solution:

“On the edit screen, under the Screen Options tab, enable the Scripts n Styles metabox”
