You may use different HTML elements like lists, tables, paragraphs on your post and it’s quite possible that you want the element to look differently in different context. There are two ways to achieve this
Add a class for each post in the style sheet of your theme. If you have some 20+ posts with element styles specific to them , they would make your css file extremely lengthy and thus increasing the loading time and wasting ur bandwidth.
Add the styles in the custom field for each post.
To implement the second idea
$id = $wp_query->post->ID;
$css_docs = get_post_meta($id, 'custom_css', false);
echo '<!--Custom css for '.get_the_title().'.-->'."\n";
foreach ($css_docs as $css)
echo '<style media="screen" type="text/css">'.$css.'
foreach ($js_docs as $js)

Month of the year, for example 05
Day of the month, for example 28
Hour of the day, for example 15
Minute of the hour, for example 43
Second of the minute, for example 33

A sanitized version of the category name (category slug field on New/Edit Category panel). Nested sub-categories appear as nested directories in the URI.

We really felt the need for this post after getting some crappy applications. There were 20+ applications the first day and none were selected. They are the kind of people who would stretch their hand at everything that is called free, without even bothering to know what it is. So if you are one of them please do us a favour by not applying.
We get lot of applications every day. We don’t have the enough man power to reply to crappy applications.I have given my staff strict instructions to not to forward me the applications that are incomplete and inaccurate. Incomplete applications will never reach my desk and never be reviewed.

Your writing skills and your knowledge in your field.
Your writing skills and your knowledge in your field.
Your selection will be based on the content in your current blog or the blog posts you write. These two fields help us know your writing skills. If you don’t give us a url to your blog or submit your posts, we cannot know your writing skills and we are left with no choice but to send your application to trash. Can I submit a url to my blog and the posts??
Yes, you can submit your blog url and blog posts to maximize your chances of getting selected. Minimum and maximum length of sample posts??
There is no maximum and minimum length for the posts, two decent 300 word articles should get you selected.
Another major factor that influences your selection is this question. Tell us about your experience in the topic you choose to blog about, and tell us why we should select you??
Your answer to this question tells us how motivated you are about blogging. If you don’t know why we should select you then don’t bother to apply. Why do we ask Age,Gender, Address, Education??
We ask these questions to know more about our participants and for administrative purposes. Your answers to these questions have no weight in the selection procedure.
