In this article, we will learn how to enqueue style and script in WordPress.

We will start by enqueue using two functions wp_enqueue_style() and wp_enqueue_script(). Both the two functions have the first 4 parameters that are the same and the last one is different.


wp_enqueue_style( string $handle, string $src = '', array $deps = array(), string|bool|null $ver = false, string $media = 'all' )

wp_enqueue_script( string $handle, string $src = '', array $deps = array(), string|bool|null $ver = false, bool $in_footer = false )


  • $handle : (string) (Required) Name of the stylesheet. Should be unique.
  • $src: (string) (Optional) Full URL of the stylesheet, or path of the stylesheet.
  • $deps: (array) (Optional) An array of registered stylesheet handles this stylesheet depends on.
    Default value: array()
  • $ver: (Optional)
    • String: specifying stylesheet version number.
    • Bool: If the version is set to false, a version number is automatically added equal to the current installed WordPress version.
    • Null: no version is added.
  • $media: (Optional)
    string: The media for which this stylesheet has been defined. Accepts media types like ‘all’, ‘print’ and ‘screen’, or media queries like ‘(orientation: portrait)’ and ‘(max-width: 640px)’.
    Default value: ‘all’
  • $in_footer: This parameter is only available for scripts. If set to true the script is loaded through wp_footer() at the bottom of your page.
    Default value: false

      function thecodehubs_enqueue_script_style() {
        wp_enqueue_style( 'stylesheet', get_stylesheet_directory_uri() . '/style.css', array(), '1.0.0', 'all');
        wp_enqueue_script( 'custom_js', get_stylesheet_directory_uri() . '/js/custom.js', array(), '1.0.0', true );
      add_action( 'wp_enqueue_scripts', 'thecodehubs_enqueue_script_style' );
