    Hi All,

    I'm going to release a plugin that I created a year ago. I updated it and added some new features and it works nice now.

    -It allows bloggers to edit theme stylesheet (like wpcom custom css paid upgrade)
    -You can enable it for all or specific blogs (i.e. premium blogs)
    -It uses a simple method to strip insecure or invalid CSS codes.

    Download it here: WPMU Custom CSS (This address may change later)

    I'm going to make more free plugins for WPMU community, so please let me know your needs.

    Hi - I love the idea, but I'm really curious as to why you are stripping out /* CSS Comments */

    Is there a security risk associated here? It would be very helpful to not only allow CSS comments, but modify the default with extra comments that help guide CSS noobs. Thoughts?

    Is there a security risk associated here?

    Yes, there is. (Sorry, not posting details to a public forum)

    For reference, wp.com strips it out of theirs as well.

    Yes, as tdjcbe said it's a security risk. That is the different between wpmu custom css and other custom CSS plugins.

    Yesterday I found a little bug on it. I forgot "<!--" so it displays a text on the header of blog. If you use it please upgrade!

    Re: Security Risk

    Is there still a security risk if we allow comments to be saved, but strip them out on actual display? Basically, I want to include comments so I can make a file with things like this:

    /* Uncommenting this section will show your visited links in purple */
    /*
    a:visited {color: purple;}
    /*

    Would it be safe to strip it out when rendering the text for display anywhere other than the textarea where it gets edited? Thanks!

    Also - Hassan, have you considered any kind of role based options with this? We have a MU setup where we'd love to be able to have 3 options for each blog:
    1) no custom css
    2) only site administrator can edit css
    3) site administrator or blog administrator can edit css

    (obviously could be expanded for more roles/etc, but i think these basic settings would add a lot of functionality)

    thanks again!

    - Lems

    Sorry for delay,

    @MadtownLems
    1)I think it's safe. I will consider it for next versions.

    2)Currently WPMU Custom CSS supports all 3 options. Site admin can edit all blogs. Premium blogs [or all blogs] can edit, too.

    The plugin is compatible with our membership plugin so if you need more rules or an automatic progress you can try it.

    Let me know if you find any bug or problem.

    Thanks!

    Interesting. Looks like it says the css as a post:

    http://wordpress.org/support/topic/333494

    Haven't tried it myself and if it doesn't do it like that, that's fine. Just an interesting method of doing it that I hadn't thought of before.

    it does look interesting. Might play around with it on my WP2.9 install

    Actually I mean "interesting" as it appears to store the data as a post. (Again feel free to correct if that's not correct.) All the other solutions we've found store the css as an options record within the blog table or as an actual written to file within the blog id subdirectory within blogs.dir like how the sitemaps solution works. Ours does the second one although it was originally to do it via the first method.
