Code Snippets Extended


Using this plugin, you can create code chunks(or snippets) and use them in posts or pages on your site.

In one snippet you can use different code types: js, php, css, just set required tags.

  • <?php ?> – for php code,
  • <script></script>, – for js code,
  • <style></style> – for stylesheets.

Also you can test snippet code, before save it.
If you want to add your custom language support – write me email. We will translate this plugin together.

Nice idea of a plugin. Sadly however php code doesn't work. Even the provided examples are not running as the " are all escaped. Too bad 🙁
allows us to add php anywhere using shortcodes. No more messing with functions.php file, making custom page templates or spawning child themes for a bit of custom logic. AMAZING
