So I've been messing with this for a while now and I don't understand how I'm unable to pull in my style file properly by registering and calling it at all.

Here is my method:

public static function register_styles()
    add_action('wp_enqueue_scripts', function() {
        global $post;

        if (is_page('foodies')) {

            //Adding stylesheets
            wp_register_style('profile-style', '/Users/smajlovs/Sites/newsacfoodies/htdocs/wp-content/mu-plugins/sacfoodies/styles/style.css');

            //Enqueue the style
            wp_enqueue_style('profile-style', '/Users/smajlovs/Sites/newsacfoodies/htdocs/wp-content/mu-plugins/sacfoodies/styles/style.css');

        if ($post->post_type == 'profile') {
            echo 'Hello! I am the register_styles method on the profile custom post type page';


Within my main sacfoodies.php file, I'm calling Profile::register_styles().

The confusing part is, the var_dump that I have inside that function actually dumps out the hello on that page as shown here:

var_dump(wp_enqueue_style('profile-style')); returns null

So does anyone know why my enqueue register and call won't render my style.css file? I have the absolute path in there for testing purposes and nothing.

    You need to use a URL when enqueuing scripts and styles. You can't use a path. Jan 28, 2020 at 5:14

If we getting expected result up to var_dump('Hello!'); than can we replace below 2 lines as following..

wp_register_style('profile-style', WPMU_PLUGIN_URL.'/sacfoodies/styles/style.css');

let me know reflected changes....

Thank you


Something like this should work

add_action( 'wp_enqueue_scripts', 'enqueue_styles' );
function enqueue_styles() {

if ( is_page('foodies') ) {

    wp_enqueue_style( 'your-styles', get_stylesheet_directory_uri() . '/css/style.css' );

Swap out the get_stylesheet_directory_uri() . '/css/style.css' to match the path to your style sheet.


This is my solution, it works both on post and pages. Hope it helps:

add_action( 'wp_enqueue_scripts', 'my_theme_styles' );

function my_theme_styles() {
    if( get_queried_object_id() == 460 ) {
        wp_register_style( 'my-styles', get_stylesheet_directory_uri() . '/my-styles.css');
        wp_enqueue_style( 'my-styles', get_stylesheet_directory_uri() . '/my-styles.css');


460 is the ID of a post / page
