Plugin Description

Allows snippets of HTML, PHP, JavaScript and CSS to be created; an alternative to using a functions.php file or adding styles to a child theme.

Snippets can be used to create re-usable HTML or JavaScript snippets or to create PHP to add_actions or add_filters without needing to add them to the functions.php file or create a plugin.

The following types of snippet can be created:

  • HTML – can be loaded using the shortcode.
  • Internal CSS – automatically added as internal stylesheet.
  • CSS Stylesheet – automatically loaded.
  • Internal JavaScript – automatically added as internal JavaScript.
  • JavaScript File – automatically loaded.
  • PHP – can be loaded using the shortcode (advanced mode only).
  • PHP File – automatically loaded (advanced mode only).
  • PHP File (Header) – automatically loaded in wp_head; allows use of add_action, add_filter and add_shortcode (advanced mode only).

Shortcode usage is either [snippet id=1013] (where the supplied id value is a snippet post_id) or [snippet slug='hello-world'].

All snippets are loaded only on the site frontend; this protects the admin dashboard from white screen errors caused by badly formed PHP; only enable PHP if you really know what you’re doing.


  • Download the latest release of the plugin from GitHub.
  • Upload the entire zip file using the Plugins upload function in your ClassicPress admin panel.
  • Activate the plugin.
  • Configure relevant settings via the settings page in the admin control panel (azurecurve menu).
