Custom PHP code in WordPress with Theme Template

In WordPress you can easily add your own PHP code for certain pages via the themes.

To do this, copy the default template in the folder of the theme. Then you can specify a name for the template in the upper area:

Template Name: Template_Name

You can insert your own PHP code after the “normal” content of the page. This code looks something like this:

<?php if ( have_posts() ) : ?>

						<?php /* Start the Loop */ ?>
						<?php while ( have_posts() ) : the_post(); ?>


							$post_display_option = get_theme_mod('post_display_option','post-excerpt');

							if($post_display_option == 'post-excerpt'){
								get_template_part( 'template-parts/content','excerpt');
								get_template_part( 'template-parts/content','excerpt');


Alternatively, you could replace the entire content area with your code.
