Sometimes you’ll want to add some functionality to your WordPress site by adding some custom php code – and likely the blog post or tutorial where you found this glorious snippet of code tells you to “paste the code into your functions.php file” inside your theme – don’t do it!! You see the functions.php file is part of your theme so if you ever update the theme you’ll lose the function and potential wreck your site.
You can however use a WordPress plugin to add custom functions to your WordPress site, and in this tutorial I’ll show yu how super easy it is with the “My Custom Functions” plugin by Arthur Gareginyan.
My Custom Functions is on the WordPress Plugin Directory here: https://en-gb.wordpress.org/plugins/my-custom-functions/
