Support » Requests and Feedback » An universal CSS file for all plugins

  • Resolved robertjakobson


    Hi, this is an way out of the box idea:


    In order to reduce HTTP Requests somehow, someway plugins and their respected developers, whose contributions I really do admire, should be encouraged to either:

    a) Use an universal css file that satisifies 90% of their design and creative needs. It could include elements for styling common features like donation boxes, settings etc.. That universal css file can in return be changed and styled by the end-user of WordPress, if desired.

    b)Make all of their css easily movable to the core and central css file of the selected theme.

    Uh! Do you have any idea of the amount of CSS that needs to be added for just 1 plugin the size of, for example, eShop? 99.99% of that CSS would be useless for any other plugin.

    And? Most well written plugins allow you to override their CSS in your style.css anyway.

    Agreed. Creating CSS for a plugin in isolation is one thing. Integrating into a theme is another thing altogether. Sometimes, one of the first things you have to do is reset the plugin’s CSS – so what’s the point of a universal stylesheet for plugins?
