Reviews

Good little plugin for quick code adds

Used it to add some code to header. Worked great. Would like to see this allow placement of code to be determined by the user. Would personally like to see scripts/code added right above the </body> tag. Still gave it a five star for effort and contributing to the WP ecosystem. Thanks code people!

Scripts should be added to very bottom not top

I have multiple scripts that run on my website.

I need a plugin like this for mailchimp’s popup form because the code gets deleted every time there’s a theme update.

The downside of this plugin is that the scripts are added to the very top of the rest of my scripts as opposed to right above the </body> tag.

By being at the top, it causes problems on my site =(
