how does enqueue style work?

Recommended Posts

hi, im new here :)


i have a wordpress page for my table tennis club. there is a site with all the current standings and i want to parse a table from it to one of the wordpress pages.

i created a dynamic table with php and styled it with css and javascript. i looks perfectly fine and works just as i want to it to when i run it locally in my broswer.

however, i cant get it to work on the wordpress page.

right now, im trying to embed it with a shortcode so i can embed it anywhere i want, but so far i am not able to apply the css and the javascript to the parsed table.

but the css from the page is applied to the table, i dont want that. also the css and javascript i use in th

i got the advice to use wp_enqueue_scripts, but i dont fully understand how it works.


the theme i use is hemingway, its free. i am using a child theme of that for the page.

its function.php looks like this

/* Enqueue parent stylesheet first, child stylesheet second*/
function child_theme_s_enqueue_styles() {
 $parent_style = 'parent-style';
 wp_enqueue_style( $parent_style, get_template_directory_uri() . '/style.css' );
 wp_enqueue_style( 'child-style',
 get_stylesheet_directory_uri() . '/style.css',
 array( $parent_style )
add_action( 'wp_enqueue_scripts', 'child_theme_s_enqueue_styles' );

so it already has enqueue style in it and i dont know how to add the infomation i need to make the custom css and js work without breaking the old code.


also: is there a better way to do this?
