In this episode I will demonstrate a WordPress Plugin that enables you to add code snippets to your WordPress Website without having to touch your theme’s functions.php file or the need to create a child theme. This is ideal if you did not create the theme and don’t want to worry about losing your code when the author updates the theme.
Here’s some info from the official WOrdPress Repository about this plugin.
An easy, clean and simple way to add code snippets to your site.
The WordPress Code Snippets Plugin is an easy, clean and simple way to add code snippets to your site. It removes the need to add custom snippets to your theme’s functions.php file.
A snippet is a small chunk of PHP code that you can use to extend the functionality of a WordPress-powered website; essentially a mini-plugin with less load on your site. Most snippet-hosting sites tell you to add snippet code to your active theme’s functions.php file, which can get rather long and messy after a while. Code Snippets changes that by providing a GUI interface for adding snippets and actually running them on your site just as if they were in your theme’s functions.php file.
Code Snippets provides graphical interface, similar to the Plugins menu, for managing snippets. Snippets can can be activated and deactivated, just like plugins. The snippet editor includes fields for a name, a visual editor-enabled description, tags to allow you to categorize snippets, and a full-featured code editor. Snippets can be exported for transfer to another site, either in XML for later importing by the Code Snippets plugin, or in PHP for creating your own plugin or theme.
