Code Snippets is a plugin designed to allow you to easily save code snippets to your WordPress site. This can be very useful for users who are constantly revising their website. Saving time by quickly adding new code snippets and fixing common bugs is one of the main advantages of using this plugin.
Get rid of formatting
The first thing you’ll notice about the code snippet is that it consists of blocks of code surrounded by tags. This first snippet could be as simple as a line of code with no formatting or structure. When you save this first snippet, the system creates a new file with this code and applies your formatting options. That way, you don’t need to manually apply formatting after you create your snippet.
How to create a snippet
After installing the Code Snippets plugin, you’ll have the option to create your first snippet. This is done using the Add snippet button in the Snippets menu. From here, you can select the type of snippet you want to create and enter any additional information needed to complete it. When your snippet is complete, click Save to create a new snippet file. Once the code snippet file is created, you can start adding the snippet code to it. To do so, simply locate the piece of code you want to edit in your site’s source code and click the + button next to it. When you do, the code block is added to your code snippets file and turns green. From there, you can make the necessary changes and resave your code without spoiling the formatting.
There are several ways to edit existing snippets after they’ve been added to code snippets files. The most common method involves submitting past edits made directly to the CodeSnips GitHub page for review and correction. However, there are other options available, such as viewing revisions or deleting individual snippets from the plugin interface. When making changes, be sure to change all relevant lines of code before submitting your edits directly through the GitHub link. Failure to follow these steps may result in the CodeSnips admin team rejecting edits without notice or explanation.
The simplest solution for snippets
The ability to quickly save and/or edit existing code on WordPress sites is one of the main advantages offered by the Snippets plugin. This makes it easier for users with constant editing needs but limited technical knowledge or time constraints when editing existing code snippets or adding new snippets.
You can find the snippet plugin in every WordPress administration under the »Plugins« and »Plugin Installation« categories. You can find it under the name »Code Snippets«.
