PHP Global

A quick guide about the option "PHP Global". How to use 'PHP Global' instead of functions.php

The Global PHP feature lets you inject global PHP functions akin to adding code to your theme’s functions.php. Implement navigational comments for easy reference by using the format // NAV: Your Navigation Text.

Usage Advisory:

  • Global Functionality: Likewise, with your theme’s functions.php file, you can now add global PHP functions directly within WPCoder. This centralizes your PHP functions and snippets, streamlining your workflow.
  • Navigational Comments: Simplify code navigation with custom comments: // NAV: Main Query Adjustment
    These comments act as markers, making it easier to locate and manage sections within your code.
  • Cautionary Measures:
    Exercise caution when using this powerful option. Always test your PHP code in a safe, controlled environment before implementing it live.
  • Error Management:
    In case of any errors, activate Safe Mode to swiftly disable the problematic code, allowing you to troubleshoot and rectify the issue without impacting your site’s performance or user experience.
