This plugin hasn’t been tested with the latest 3 major releases of WordPress. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.

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.


  • 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.

HTML meta tags added in non-amp version is not showing in amp version. Like yoast SEO meta tags are shown in both the amp and non-amp version. But this plugin is not showing meta tags in both version i.e amp and non-amp. I am using multisite language site and I am using manual code of hreflang tag which is working fine in non-amp version but all codes and meta tags added in this plugin is not showing in amp version. Can u make it amp friendly?

Does what is says and much more!! – you can add custom html, css, scripts in the header or footer globally, or on a per page basis. You can even generate your own shortcodes! You can also conditionally add generic site scripts above the included script, and add custom classes to the body or post or dropdowns that appear on the page. And to the 3-star reviewer who said that scripts are hardcoded with: <script type=”text/javascript”> The plugin lets you add your own code, but has the <script type=”text/javascript”> hardcoded, so it doesn’t help if you need other types of scripts. You can get around this by adding your entire script block using the HTML input area, rather than in the SCRIPTS input area. Fantastic little plugin that has become one of my go-tos in my ‘plugin essentials’ toolbox. Kudos to the dev for providing their time free of charge for us all to benefit from.

Nice plugin. glad I found you, was only way for me to add JavaScript to rid my site of the new Facebook Click ID url strings bogging down my site and not being able to follow Google Analytics. Also love that the developer doesn’t “take no crap” from anyone! Again, thanks Buddy 5STARS!!!
