I use wp_enqueue_style to add my stylesheet, like this:

<?php wp_enqueue_style( 'theme-style', get_template_directory_uri() . '/style.php', false, '1.0', 'all' ); ?>

It works fine BUT I need to run a Wordpress function in the style.php file. The stylesheet file does not know that the core exists.

This is what I've heard

  • It's bad to include wp-load.php.
  • It's bad to include the stylesheet directly to header.php because plugins can't find it.
  • It's bad to include the stylesheet directly to wp_head functions because plugins can't find it.

Is there a "correct" way to do this?

  • to run a wordpress function you will need to load wp-load.php which is not a good idea. If you can please explain more why you need to run a wordpress function some here might suggest you better alternative. – Hameedullah Khan Oct 11 '11 at 8:44
  • I have a plugin that echos CSS-files in the style.php and at the same time saves them as a cached file. Depending on if I'm on localhost or not it uses the PHP-file or the cached CSS-file. – Jens Törnell Oct 11 '11 at 10:16
