Installing a plugin

To make this work, you need to add a little script into the head file.

To do this safely I first installed a plugin called “Header and footer scripts”.

  1. Go to plugins
  2. Add new
  3. Search for “Header and Footer Script
  4. Check if it’s compatible
  5. Install
  6. Activate

This is how it looks like:


Always check first if the plugin you want to install is compatible with your WordPress version. If not, you might have to update your version. If that doesn’t help, search for another plugin.

Activating and using the Header and Footer Script plugin

Now you can safely add scripts into your header. Also very useful to verify things. Companies as Google and merchants often ask you to add scripts into the header or into the body of your website. This plugin does prevent you to go into the editor. Very convenient!
