WordPress Plugin: Insert Header and Footer Code

Sometimes you may want to tweak the Header and Footer areas of a WordPress theme, without having to go into the actual files to edit. This can easily be accomplished by using a Plugin.

While most WordPress themes do come with Admin panels for customizing headers, footers, and other areas of a page, you may find a Plugin is easier for you to use on a regular basis – especially if you’re adding snippets of information you want to change on a regular basis.

Header and Footer Plugins are convenient to use, but before you install into your theme, review the plugin to be sure which WP version it works on, and how widely it's being used. Many of the header and footer plugins available have not been upgraded to work with the latest version of WordPress.
