CSS Naked Day

CSS Naked Day plugin for WordPress automatically strips off XML/HTML stylesheet references, embedded stylesheets and inline styles—all without editing your template! It also provides a function to determine whether it is the 9th of April on the recommended worldwide 48-hour CSS Naked Day period or just your local 24-hour period if ever you want to automate a message telling viewers why your site is in the nude.

Usable Functions

bool is_naked_day(void)

returns true when it is the 9th of April on the time span you’ve set, false otherwise. Sample usage:

  if (is_naked_day()) {
?>  <h3>What happened to the design?</h3>

Known Issues

The plugin would also delete occurences of inline styles (style="") that are intended as text and not as the attribute for styling markup itself. For example, in CSS tutorial pages.

Resolved in Version 1.1.2

In versions prior to 1.1.2, the plugin would cause errors for some inline styles that have escaped quotation marks of the same type as the attribute value delimiter.

For example:

style="font-family:\"Lucida Grande\",\"Lucida Sans Unicode\",sans-serif;"

… would leave …

Lucida Grande\",\"Lucida Sans Unicode\",sans-serif;"

… in the markup, as the regular expression could only remove code from the style attribute only up to the first matching quotation mark without regard to the escaped ones.
