DX Template Manager

Description

Create page templates like the ones in your theme folder but through a “DX Templates” menu in your Admin dashboard. Paste HTML, JS and PHP code which you could assign to your posts, pages or custom post types via a meta box dropdown. Create page templates and apply them to be evaluated.

Note: eval() function is used. However, it is available only for admin users to submit code and normally admin users could do a lot harm or upload external harmful plugins as well.

FAQ

Why do I need to ‘agree’?

The plugin uses the eval() PHP function that evaluates a PHP script on the fly. If a hacker reaches your admin, he would be able to write any form of PHP which could affect your site and database.

However, if the hacker has an access to the admin, he could 1) delete everything and takeover your site, or 2) upload a custom plugin of his that does the malware work.

What needs to be inserted in a DX Template?

Your full HTML as it would be in your page template file. HTML, head and body sections, meta tags, some content. It would replace the entire post/page resolved from the site.
