Custom CSS Per Post

Custom CSS Per Post

I've long been a fan of "art directing" posts. That is, to apply unique CSS styling to an individual page of content when the situation calls for it. In the past, I've used the Art Direction plugin and I even created a screencast on using it.

As it turns out, there is a major problem with the art direction plugin. Using it with any caching plugin will result in a crazy epic meltdown of your site. Without too much gory detail, in trying to cache my blog CSS-Tricks, I tried all the major caching plugins (DB Cache, WP Super Cache, W3 Total Cache) and ultimately it would trash my WordPress database and serve up white pages. Very not good.

Default Configuration Settings Via Plugin

One of the things I hear people desiring from WordPress is some kind of system for customized installations. So when you go to install a fresh copy, all the settings are how you like them (among other things).

Thomas Scholz has a sweet solution here to get us nearly there. It's a plugin that you install, activate, and delete. All it does is reset your settings how you like them (you customize it), and delete the "dummy" post and comment.
