How to Add PHP Code to WordPress Posts?

Initially, the direct adding of PHP code to WordPress posts or pages is not allowed. However, in WordPress, you can use custom shortcodes to insert  PHP code into posts or pages. You can quickly create a plugin that will enable you to use custom shortcodes anywhere you can type on your site.

Now, I’m only going to show you the basics of creating a plugin. In later posts, I will get more in-depth with WordPress plugins. But, in this post, I’m going to help you make a simple plugin. You can easily edit the plugin right in WordPress. You can also add as many shortcodes to this as your heart desires.

What is a shortcode?

Shortcodes are PHP code designed to perform a specific function or task. Shortcodes appear as text within single brackets. So, insert them anywhere you can paste some text.

So let us get started. On your computer, open up a file manager. Create and name a folder. Don’t use spaces in the name of the folder. Use underscores rather than spaces.
