To add our code through WordPress, there are three possible solutions:
1. Manually, by editing your theme's header.php file
2. With your theme's built-in header code feature
3. Using a plugin
The second option uses your theme's built -in feature. Some WordPress themes like Elegant Themes and Genesis Framework by StudioPress offer a built-in option for quickly adding code and scripts to your WordPress header. Just bear in mind that if you change your theme, then the code snippets will need to be re-added to your website.
For the third option there are a number of plugins available in the market that make it straightforward to add code to your header. For example, many of our customers use Google Tag Manager to install our code.
To install the snippet directly on your website, will need to go directly into the HTML code of your site and place it in the header. Ask your web developer for help or contact our support team for more information!
