Plugin Specific Styles Not Registering?

Hi everyone :)

Just working on my first plugin, I had the functionality working when the code was tested in my functions.php file prior to making this into a plugin. A that point the css relevant to that function was in the main css directory.

From my main plugin.php file I added the following code hoping it would bring in the css file that is in the same plugin folder as the main plugin.php.


-Main Plugin Folder

Plugin.php Plugin.css


function bf_button_shortcode_styles(){

    wp_enqueue_style( 'bf_button_shortcode_styles', plugins_url( 'bf_button_shortcodes/bf_button_shortcodes.css' ) );

add_action( 'admin_head', 'bf_button_shortcode_styles' );


I'm really not sure what I am getting wrong here in respect of loading the css as I have done it in the same way Zac did in the plugin vids...(I think)

Hope you can help :)


Fixed my own silly issue :)


add_action( 'wp_enqueue_scripts', 'bf_button_shortcode_styles' );


admin head will style the back end :)


Never use admin_head in backend as well.... Use admin admin_enqueue_scripts hook otherwise waring may occur...
