WPCodeBox - The better code snippet plugin

WPCodeBox is my new all-purpose tool for WordPress. I still use a child theme with an elaborate functions.php, but with WPCodeBox I have added small scripts to WordPress much faster.

WPCodeBox is a WordPress plugin that provides website owners with an easy way to embed code snippets into their pages. Mit dem leistungsstarken Code-Editor fügst du HTML, CSS, JavaScript und PHP Code in deinen Blog ein. Für CSS gibt es sogar eine Auto-Reload-Funktion.

Why I don’t want to miss this handy code snippet manager anymore, I’ll show you now.

What is WPCodeBox?

WPCodeBox is a WordPress plugin that allows users to add code snippets or entire code blocks to WordPress. It also offers features like syntax highlighting to make the code more readable and clear, as well as the ability to minimize the code to display it more compactly. WPCodeBox can also be used to integrate a code editor into the WordPress admin to allow users to write and edit code directly in their WordPress backend.

The plugin is especially useful for bloggers who want to insert PHP, HTML, CSS or JavaScript on a regular basis. Or for developers who want to document their code work directly in their WordPress site. It also offers features like code download links and code import/export to make it easier to deal with code snippets in WordPress.

The complete code editor, directly in WordPress.
The complete code editor, directly in WordPress.

For any WordPress user who is confident in adding small scripts and tags to their sites themselves.

For advanced bloggers is a code manager, a godsend. Unlike functions.php, all snippets are separated from each other. This increases the overview immensely.

WPCodeBox alternatives

Code Snippets Pro: Add a new snippet.
Code Snippets Pro: Add a new snippet.

Ad hoc I can think of two good alternatives for WPCodeBox:

  • Code Snippets Pro – This plugin has been the standard for custom codes in WordPress for many years.
  • Advanced Scripts – Of these three plugins, this one would be my last choice

WPCodeBox Support

There is a lot of eager discussion in the group about the plugin and how it works.

This is where WPCodeBox really shines. The developer is super dedicated and helpful. This shows not only in the regular updates, but also in the support.

Whether by email, chat or in the Facebook group, I have always received help quickly.

The active community on FB provides additional value for me.

WPCodeBox questions and answers

You have an API key built into the plugin that is used to access your cloud account. You can also create additional API keys with read or write access.

Yes, you can change your API key by going into your account and regenerating the API key. Be sure to keep the API key as secret as a password.

Not necessarily, but you should at least understand what the inserted snippet does. WPCodeBox has some catch-alls to catch the most common mistakes and help you not break your site. In the WordPress snippet repository, you can find deployable snippets that you can use on your website.

No, on the contrary. The code is stored locally by default. However, you also have the option to upload the snippets to your cloud account.

Yes, you can use WPCodeBox and Tag Manager side by side. I do it that way as well. I use GTM for Analytics events and external SaaS snippets.

Then for CSS and PHP, I fall back to the local code manager.

If you want to include the JavaScript code for GTM with WPCodeBox, you can find a generator here that will create the ready hook for you.

WPCodeBox Personal Experience

I have been using WPCodeBox for a few months now here on BloggerPilot and on other blogs. In fact, I used it to replace the Code Snippets Pro plugin because this plugin is simply more innovative.

So I can only report good things. Especially features like the cloud library and the automatic refreshing for CSS snippets I already find excellent.

WPCodeBox Rating

From me, the snippet manager gets 5 out of 5 points!
