Quickie: Executing CSS in custom_functions.php

Sometimes we need to execute CSS code within the PHP in our custom_functions.php file. It’s a simple trick! You use the style statement to wrap your CSS in.

Here’s an example for you:

function use_style_statement() {
?>
<style type="text/css">
.custom #some_id { background: #000000; }
.custom .some_class { position: relative; }
</style>
<?php
}

Note these things:

  • You must turn PHP off with the ?> statement before using the style statement and back on with <?php when you are finished.
  • The CSS statements within the style statement are the same as you would use in the custom.css file

Now, isn’t that easy?
