What are PHP Errors, Warnings, and Notices on WordPress Sites?

Logtivity Supports the Code Snippets Plugin

Code Snippets is a popular plugin that is used by a lot of WordPress agencies.

The major advantage of the Code Snippets plugin is that it provides a simple way to run code snippets on your site. Normally you have to add these snippets to your theme’s functions.php file.

The Code Snippets plugin provides a user interface for managing snippets. Snippets can be activated and deactivated, plus you can add extra details such as name, description, and tags. It’s also simple to import and export the snippets so you can re-use your code on different sites.

Because the Code Snippets plugin is a crucial tool for many WordPress agencies, we’ve added support for the plugin. Any changes to your snippets will be stored in your site’s activity log.
