While some theme frameworks like Genesis have a built-in option for quickly adding code and scripts to your WordPress header or footer, we here at WPBeginner have worked on numerous sites and custom themes where this functionality doesn’t exist. Most users, however, will certainly want to add some sort of meta information or Google Analytics to their WordPress blog at some point.
To solve this problem, and empower the users, we use a custom plugin on our sites called Insert Headers and Footers for WordPress. Not only is it extremely simple and easy to use without a bunch of confusing options, the biggest advantage is that instead of having to use a dozen different plugins to add various scripts and meta tags to your header or footer you can just add them all in one spot. In this tutorial we are going to show you how to insert code to you WordPress header or footer using this simple plugin.
First, download and install Insert Headers and Footers for WordPress. Now go to Settings » Insert Headers and Footers.
Here you see two text boxes where you can add your code. Simply copy and paste any meta information, scripts, Google Analytics, etc. and click “save settings”. This code will now be output to either your header or you footer.
