Wordpress

By default, WordPress doesn’t provide an option to insert code in your website’s header and footer. Luckily there is an easy and quick solution recommended by the WP experts.

First thing you need to do is install and activate the Insert Headers and Footers plugin. For more details, see this step by step guide on how to install a WordPress plugin.

Once the plugin is activated, go to Settings » Insert Headers and Footers from your admin panel. After that, you will see two boxes for adding code to header and footer.

Insert Headers and Footers plugin settings

Navigate over to goodreviews and grab your code. Simply paste the goodreviews code in one of the two boxes. Once done, don’t forget to click the Save button to store your changes.

The plugin will now automatically load the code in the respective locations on your WordPress site.

That’s it! 

Note: You may have to clear your WordPress cache after saving changes, so the code properly appears on the front-end of your website.
