Sometimes you want to change something in WordPress. This could be a design element such as social link placement on mobile, a core function like comments, or a monetization feature like ad placement. Often the solution is to use a plugin, but if all you need is to make one edit why go through all that trouble? Instead you can use a code snippet.
What Is a Code Snippet?
For WordPress, a code snippet is simple a piece of PHP, JS, CSS or HTML code. Snippets are used to edit default WordPress features instead of adding an entirely new file or installing a plugin.
