Code Insert Manager (Q2W3 Inc Manager)

This plugin was made to easily add html, css, php or javascript code to public WordPress pages.


UPDATE FROM ver 1.x to 2.x NOTE:
Following page selectors have been removed: All Posts, All Pages, Category Pages and Tag Pages.
Inserts that used them will not work. But don’t worry, just recreate «Insert» and «Exclude» rules and they will work again!


  1. Check minimal system requirements: WordPress 2.8.0, PHP 5.1.0.
  2. Download plugin.
  3. Unzip and upload `q2w3-inc-manager` folder to the `/wp-content/plugins/` directory.
  4. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress.


  1. On the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress click ‘Deactivate’ plugin link.
  2. You will be redirected to the page with two options:
    • ‘Deactivate plugin’ — for simple plugin deactivation. Use it for temporary plugin deactivation if you plan to use plugin in future.

Let’s see what are the meanings of all those options:

  • Description. A shot description of your code. Something like ‘My banner’ or ‘Google Analitics’.
  • Status. There are two options:
    • Active. Include code will be shown.
    • Disabled. Include code will not be shown.
  • Location. Here you can select area of the page where your code will appear. Possible locations are:
    1. Header (between <head></head> tags). Suitable for placing meta tags like Google Webmaster Tools ID, css or javascript code. Do not place here html code for visual output like <div>Hello</div>.
    2. Footer (bottom of the page). Suitable for placing any type of code. For expample this is a right place for Google Analitics code.
    3. Before page content (before WP loop). Suitable for any types of advertisement.
    4. After page content (after WP loop). Suitable for any types of advertisement.
    5. Before post content. Suitable for any types of advertisement.
    6. After post excerpt (since version 2.0.0).
    7. After post content. Suitable for any types of advertisement.
    8. Widget. Suitable for inserting advertisement blocks to the sidebar. Widget must be activated on the Appearance->Widgets page.
      • There is a sub option for Widget location — Widget title. This title is only for public pages. If no title provided, only widget include code will be displayed.
    9. Manual. This option allows you to place php function directly in your theme file.
    10. Shortcode. Insert code inside page or post content.

  • Priority. This field determines display order of the includes placed in the same location. Field value must be integer. Includes with equal priorities are sorted by creation time. Newer includes will be displayed after older. If you set priority to 0 or leave it empty, after saving include priority value will become equal to 100. This is done to create include with priority ‘always first’ and ‘always last’. To make include always first set priority to 1 and make sure that there are no other includes with this priority in the same location. To make include always last set priority higher than 100 (for example 1000). Now all new includes with undefined priority will be placed between ‘always first’ and ‘always last’.
  • Include on. Here you can select pages where your code CAN be shown. To select multiple pages or deselect page hold CTRL key. WordPress pages, posts pages, categories pages and tag pages can be selected one by one. Also there are several special page selectors:
    • All. That means all public pages.
    • Front page. Whether it is posts or a Page. Sub pages also belong to the front page. To exclude subpages select `Paged pages` in Exclude on section.
    • WP pages. These are WordPress Pages, not any generic webpage from your blog.
    • Posts pages. All post pages.
    • Date pages. These are all date-based archive pages (i.e. a monthly, yearly, daily or time-based archive).
    • Category pages. All Category archive pages.
    • Tag pages. All Tag archive pages.
    • Author pages. All author pages.
    • Attachment pages. All attachment pages.
    • Paged pages. All pages being displayed as «paged». This refers to an archive or the main page being split up over several pages. Only second and subsequent pages are considered «paged». This does not refer to a Post or Page whose content has been divided into pages using the nextpage QuickTag.
    • Search page. Any search result page.
    • Preview page. Single post page displayed in Draft mode.
    • Page 404. Paged displayed when ‘HTTP 404 Page not found’ error happens.
  • Exclude on. Here you can select pages where your code CANNOT be shown. Multiple select can be done by holding CTRL key.
  • Hide from admin. Since version 2.0 this option upgraded to Hide from user. Now you can specify user groups to hide code from.
  • Code. Html, css or javascript code. Inclusion of PHP code supported since version 1.1.0. PHP code must begins with `php open tag` (<?php). Examples:
<?php /* php open tag is required */ echo 'WP variable: '; print_r($GLOBALS['wp']); /* php close tag is not required */


<h1>Hello!</h1><?php echo 'PHP!' ?><h2>Bye!</h2>
  • Sub option Align (since version 1.1.0). Allows you to set horizontal align of the included code. Useful for aligning Google AdSense blocks.

A few words about settings page interface.
You can select table columns which will be displayed and can change number of table rows per page. To do this go to Screen options menu.

Also if Include options window is taking to much place you can minimize it by clicking on the window top bar (see screen shot above).

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. How many Includes may I create?

    The number of Includes is unlimited.

  2. What is ‘Widget title’ option?

    This option allows you to specify widget title for public WordPress pages. It will be displayed like Categories or Tags widget titles.
    If you leave this option blanc, widget will be displayed without title.

  3. I have set priority to 0 or left it blanc, but after saving it equals 100. Why?

    This is done to help you create Include with priority ‘always first’ and ‘always last’. To make Include always first set priority to 1 and make sure that there are no other includes with this priority in the same location. To make include always last set priority higher than 100 (for example 1000). Now all new includes with undefined priority will be placed between ‘always first’ and ‘always last’.

  4. Why Widget and Manual Includes priority is always 100 and I can’t change it?

    Widget and Manual Includes don’t use priority number for sorting. Don’t worry about it.

  5. In wich order sorted Includes with equal priorities?

    Equal priority Includes are sorted by creation time. Newer includes will be displayed after older.

I am trying to insert this code to the HEAD but when I look at the web source code using a browser, the code is not there.

Yes, it is saved and active (and the location is HEADER).

I don´t know if the theme uses wp_head() because I don´t know much about this. My theme is this one:

And I use WP Super Cache but I delete the cache when I change something.

I have another insert active in the HEADER location and it is shown when I look at the web source code. The code for the second insert is this one:

<script type='text/javascript' src=''>

It has to be something with my web or my theme because I have tried with another plugin (not as complete as yours) and I have the same problem. I am trying to find help in the forum of the theme. Thank you.

If you look at If you visit the business, technique and private changes with the code insert plug in active you can see the tabs but the slider does not load. If I deactivate the code insert plug in the tabs of course disappear but the image at the top is fine.

I need the code insert plug in to make the zozo tab plug in work.

My theme is a solostream theme (Enlightened).

I have a top slider on every page. However this slider image stopped working. I deactivated all plug ins and reactivated them one by one.

The culprit is the code insert manager. Deactivate that and the slider appears. But of course the tabs disappear.

So I am writing to my theme people but also thought you may have come across this and if you could offer any advice.

Basically the code insert plug in does not seem to be compatible with my theme.

Best wishes


I don’t understand what kind of insert you are doing… Give me more info!

The problem with a slider has javascript source. I see jQuery library loaded two times (lines 54 and 64)! This may couse problem with slider!
I suppose the problem not in plugin itself, but in the way you are using it!.. Check your code!

I just wanted to say THANK_YOU. This is easily the most_useful plugin i have used in a long,long time. It has simplified the process of troubleshooting specific header/footer items conflicting with plugins.

The plugin is working with WP 3.6.

What is your theme?
What location you are using to insert code?
Cache plugin installed?

Try to test plugin with one of default themes. If it is not working, probably there is a conflict with other plugin


You can delete it from ftp or from server control panel (most of them providing file managment functions).
Go to wp-includes/plugins folder, find q2w-inc-manager foler and delete it.

Within «selecting post» section it is not possible to choose either draft or scheduled posts. As I am working on the new post I don’t want it to be visible before I finish it properly which includes inserting script as well.
Please, advice me how to add post to unpublished post (or page)?

Thank you!

Hm… it’s a good feature to add in next version.
But for now I advise you to insert script through shortcode or through aggregate selector (all posts of certain post type and etc.)

Hello. I’m trying to validate my WP site code, and have just realised that you can’t use special characters (specifically the ‘&’ ampersand) in the code insert HTML code to satisfy validation. I change the & to &, but when saving the insert, it just changes back. Is there a way to do this? Am I missing something? Thanks in advance.

When you save & sign it remains as & in the source code too.
If you save


it displays as & after saving (browser converts html entities automatically)
but in source code it still


So you should pass validation.

I’ve tried it several times, and each time it reverts back to the ‘&’ symbol in the source HTML code too. Not sure what to do.

How you are checking the source code?
For example in Chorme there are two ways:
right click -> View the code of element (in this case entites are converted)
right click -> View the code of page (in this case entites are not converted)

Also you can insert the code like this:

<?php echo '&amp';?>

It will not be converted


This plugin should have an option that would allow us not to load certain things while browsing website in mobile or tablet version!


Since you updated this wonderful code insert plugin to Version 2.3.2 it no longer insert shortcodes to the posts. Would you please reviews this problem? thank you

The shortcode remain untouched.

I have decided to downgrade the plugin to the previous version 3.2.1 and it is working OK

I have the lastest version of the plugin and wordpress installed.

I can only get the code to appear on the front page.

Selecting all pages or a specific page does not show the code :(

What am I doing wrong?
