What are Code Snippets in WordPress?

Using Too Many Plugins Can Slow Down Your WordPress Website

Why Do We Need Code Snippets for WordPress?

  1. Reduce the number of plugins for more straightforward tasks. It is like using hooks to disable/enable or add/remove certain WordPress functionalities. Using code snippets can reduce the number of plugins used on the website.
  2. Code snippets are reusable and resource-friendly.
  3. Code snippets are a way to save a snippet of code needed for a site’s functionality. It can apply to various kinds of usage; for example, you can add google tag manager code to all of your pages. Another example is to use a CSS snippet that applies to a specific page of your website.

What Are The Usual Means of Adding Code Snippets to a WordPress Website?

  • Using a Code Snippet Manager Plugin from WordPress Repository.
  • Create a site-specific custom plugin that contains useful snippets.
  • Add the code snippets into existing functions.php files that are included within the theme folder.

The Current Drawbacks of the Above Mentioned Systems

  • Code Snippet Manager plugins are not currently configured to sync between websites at the time of this writing. This means you need to copy or create files on your other WordPress websites manually.
  • Creating a site-specific plugin will require you to create a small plugin and upload it to the specific WordPress website plugin folder. This can be tiresome if you have more than 3 sites.
  • If you have a single error in the plugin file or functions.php file, your site might be unusable until you fix the code.
  • The functions.php files are generally part of the custom theme you are using, and often they contain theme-specific codes there. If you add it to that file, it might get overwritten when you update the theme. Also, those functions will not work if you switch the active theme.
  • Any code error will break the website as well. It is difficult to track which piece of code broke the website.
