I would like to load a stylesheet on only 3 admin pages:

  • post.php?post=7&action=edit
  • post.php?post=10&action=edit
  • post.php?post=18&action=edit

I was trying with admin_enqueue_script but it doesn't seem to be capable of such specificity (see my related wpse post), which led me to get_current_screen. But all the examples and articles I find about get_current_screen refer to using it with a plugin and/or plugin options page:

I would simply like to use get_current_screen in my functions.php to determine if the admin page loaded is 1 of the 3 pages and if so load a css file.

A simple example would be very helpful (php novice here). Thank you for any help.


I haven't tested this but theoretically you could do something like this (Using the Codex as an Example):

function load_custom_wp_admin_style() {
    $pageArr = array(1, 2, 3);
    if(isset($_GET['post']) && in_array($_GET['post'], $pageArr)){
        wp_register_style( 'custom_wp_admin_css', get_template_directory_uri() . '/admin-style.css', false, '1.0.0' );
        wp_enqueue_style( 'custom_wp_admin_css' );
add_action( 'admin_enqueue_scripts', 'load_custom_wp_admin_style' );

We get the current screen and set the page IDs we would like to include any scripts or styles. We then make sure that there is a $_GET['post'] set which holds our post->ID and we also want to make sure we're in the correct post type (though you could probably skip the whole current screen thing entirely and just use $_GET). We then check to see if the current post ID is in our array of accepted IDs and if so: enqueue.

  • Tried it. Seems to work perfectly! Thank you so much. Could I trouble you for an example without "the whole current screen thing" as you mentioned, just using $_GET? – codeview Aug 28 '14 at 21:42
  • @codeview Glad to hear it! I've updated my answer and removed the references to get_current_screen(). If this works, don't forget to click the checkmark to show others that the question has been answered! – Howdy_McGee Aug 28 '14 at 21:44
  • That works too! This is very helpful. If I don't need to use get_current_screen I will use your edited code but I have copied the pre-edit for reference since you removed it. – codeview Aug 28 '14 at 21:54
