I am using a Plugin called PixGridder for backend setup, but i dont want the front-end css to apply.. I found that in the plugins functions.php has these lines:

public function front_styles() {
        $theme_style = get_stylesheet_directory().'/gridder.css';
        if (file_exists($theme_style)) {
            wp_enqueue_style( $this->plugin_slug, get_stylesheet_directory_uri().'/gridder.css', array(), $this->version );
        } else {
            wp_enqueue_style( $this->plugin_slug, PIXGRIDDER_URL.'css/front-gridder.css', array(), $this->version );

    add_action( 'wp_enqueue_scripts', array( &$this, 'front_styles' ) );

My question is, how do i unregister this function? or at least prevent the plugin from looking for the front styles though my Theme functions? - and is it even possible to unregister a function through a theme?

Same way you would remove it from anywhere else, be it a plugin or theme or whatever.

function remove_whatever() {
    if (class_exists('PixGridder')) {
        remove_action( 'wp_enqueue_scripts', array( PixGridder::get_instance(), 'front_styles' ) );

Might want to use a better function name than "remove_whatever" though. :)


if the plugins_loaded is not working then use init

function remove_plugin_style() {
    if (class_exists('Gravity_Forms_Live_Validation')) {
        remove_action( 'wp_enqueue_scripts', array( Gravity_Forms_Live_Validation::get_instance(), 'enqueue_styles' ) );

its also working fine for me :)
