Some of my wordpress websites have many plugins which generate lots of links to Scripts & Style Sheets.

Some of these Scripts & Style Sheets are only required on one page however Wordpress links to them on every page usually via the header.

Does anyone know of a method or plugin to restrict Scripts & Style Sheets used only the ones used on the relevant page?

How is the "relevant page" to be determined?  All WordPress knows is that you have installed something.

Sort of.  The issue is that the plugins are the ones adding the calls to the files so any solution involving conditional code would probably involve altering the plugin.  Once you do that, you either have to fork it or not update it as the next update will blow away any changes.

The better way to do this may be to minify and combine CSS and JS files.  W3 Total Cache can do it or you can hook onto a CDN service that will do it too.
