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.
Notes about the implementation:
- Admin users, or more specifically, any user with the
unfiltered_htmlcapabilities (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
styletags by using
wp-head. If your theme doesn’t have this hook, this plugin (as well as most others) won’t work.
head) element with
scripttags by using
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
htmlwith 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.
This plugin does not require any special activation or template tags. Just get it from wordpress.org/extend, 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.
