Required Permissions

Intense requires the ability to write to your uploads directory. These permissions are used to dynamically create a CSS file which includes shortcode CSS styles. If WordPress can upload to this directory, you are likely set up correctly. Over time, you will notice CSS files with names starting with 'intense_' in your uploads directory. These can safely be removed. The dynamic CSS file will be recreated when individual shortcode styles are turned on/off and when the styles change.
