    styleurl Now the question is what should the source be In other words what is styleurl Clearly it is not going to be a static file on your server And the purpose of this post is to show that it doesn t have to be a file on the server at all It is a two part answer You have to remember that you are working within the WordPress framework and you cannot make standalone php files The only thing you can do is to add arguments to the existing php files or the plugins you have created So you first make a submit button as follows form method post action php echo SERVER REQUEST URI div class submit input type submit name saveCSS title Download the tweaked stylesheet to your computer value Download Stylesheet div Note that the name attribute of the button is saveCSS Now in the part of the code that handles submits you do something like php if isset POST saveCSS styleurl get option siteurl wp admin themes php page theme tweaker php save This is the styleurl that you would give as the source of your iFrame fram Note that it is the same as your pluging page URL except that you managed to add save at the end of it The next trick is to capture that argument and handle it For that you use the WordPress API function add action as php if isset GET save add action init array thmTwk saveCSS else remove action init array thmTwk saveCSS This adds a function saveCSS to the init part of your plugin Now you have to define this function php function saveCSS header Content Disposition attachment filename style css header Content Transfer Encoding ascii header Expires 0 header Pragma no cache stylestr Whatever string you want to save ob start print stylestr ob end flush die Now we are almost home free The only thing to understand is that you do need the die If your function doesn t die it will spew out the rest of the WordPress generated stuff into your save file appending it to your string stylestr It may look complicated Well I guess it is a bit complicated but once you implement it and get it running you can and do forget about it At least I do That s why I posted it here so that the next time I need to do it I can look it up geek php plugins string wordpress Corporate Life Email Flotsam Humor Geeks December 10 2008 manoj 4 Comments I have been doing a bit of geeky stuff lately writing WordPress plugins Okay it is because I m suffering from a terrible writer s block You see I m supposed to be working on my next book I foolishly promised a couple of chapters of The Principles of Quantitative Development to my commissioning editor at John Wiley Sons within a month now I find myself writing everything other than those darned
