get_stylesheet_uri()WP 1.5.0

Retrieves the URI of the current theme stylesheet file (style.css).

The stylesheet file name is always style.css, that's why this function use get_stylesheet_directory_uri() and append the name to the end: http://domain/path/style.css.

If a child theme is used, this function returns the URL to the child theme, not to a parent one.

If you want to load a stylesheet (CSS) file, you should use wp_enqueue_style() function:

add_action( 'wp_enqueue_scripts', 'enqueue_mytheme_style' );
function enqueue_mytheme_style() {
	wp_enqueue_style( 'theme-style', get_stylesheet_uri() );
