How To Add Dynamic Style To WordPress Editor

Using mce_css filter and WordPress AJAX actions, we will add dynamic style to WordPress editor.

Add Dynamic Style

Use this filter, copy function code and paste it in your “functions.php” file:

function WPTime_add_dynamic_css_to_tinymce( $mce_css ){
    if ( ! empty( $mce_css ) ) {
        $mce_css .= ',';

    $mce_css .= add_query_arg(
                                   'action' => 'wptime_tiny_dyn_style',
                                   '_nonce' => wp_create_nonce( 'wptime-dyn-style-nonce')

                admin_url( 'admin-ajax.php' )

    return $mce_css;
add_filter( 'mce_css', 'WPTime_add_dynamic_css_to_tinymce' );

Now we need AJAX function:

function wptime_tiny_dyn_style_ajax_callback(){
    header( 'Content-type: text/css' );

    $get_links_color = get_option('link_color'); // example for link color, change it to your option

    $get_heading_color = get_option('heading_color'); // example for heading color, change it to your option

    // and more options, etc...

    echo " a{ color: $get_links_color; } ";

    echo " h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6,{ color: $get_heading_color; } ";

    // etc...

add_action( 'wp_ajax_wptime_tiny_dyn_style', 'wptime_tiny_dyn_style_ajax_callback' );
add_action( 'wp_ajax_no_priv_wptime_tiny_dyn_style', 'wptime_tiny_dyn_style_ajax_callback' );

Now link color and heading color will be added to WordPress editor, change code and enter your options and css code.
