Add code to functions.php in wordpress via a plugin

Custom code without hacking functions.php So you want to add code to your wordpress theme but don’t want to mess directly with your functions.php file to make things more like you want. Adding some code in the form of a function to the “functions.php” file of your active theme is simple enough if you know what you’re doing but one extra } or / and the whole site will go down. The other issue with adding directly to your functions.php is when you change your theme that piece of code is no longer in effect and you need to code it again in the new theme. So if you wish to have portability and ease of adding then it should be done via some kind of a plugin. So that the effect is persistent across themes. And the good news is, that there indeed are few plugins for the task. 1. Functionality Plugin The Functionality Plugin is a sneaky little plugin that installs itself, and creates a “blank plugin” bearing the name of the site. It creates an option “Plugins > Edit functions” which takes the user to the editor page for the new blank plugin. The user can add all custom functions inside this new blank plugin and it would run alongside the theme functions and other plugins. Simple and effective. 2. Pluginception Pluginception is another simple plugin that is similar to the Functionality plugin but with some differences. It adds an option “Plugins > Create a New Plugin” where the user can create multiple new blank plugins and put code inside each of them. The plugin can then be managed from...

Microsoft Office is now free to use on Android

Microsoft Office including Word, Excel and PowerPoint is available for free on Android and iOS devices. It means that you don’t require a subscription to Office 365 for using Microsoft Office.

Restart your Android Phone in Safe Mode

So i never knew you can restart your Android phone in safe mode much like your Windows or Mac computers. Press and hold the Power / Sleep button on your phone and you’ll be presented with an option to Power Off the device. Tap and hold that option and you will now be able to reboot your phone in “safe” mode. When the phone is in safe mode, you’ll see the words Safe Mode in the lower left corner of the screen. The safe mode feature has been available in Android for many years. If your Android phone freezes or crashes on startup, or randomly restarts, you can force restart your phone in Safe mode and uninstall any of the recent app(s) that may be preventing your phone from working correctly. Now when your phone is in safe mode, you would only see the factory-installed apps on the phone but you can still go to Settings -> Apps to uninstall any apps that you have recently downloaded. If your Android phone has become slow over time – because of all the installed apps, themes and widgets – you can use the safe mode to temporarily turn the tortoise into the hare without having to do a factory reset. The phone becomes insanely fast in safe mode and you can still use all the Google apps including Gmail, Chrome, Maps, Calendar and so on. The device feels more responsive too. To exit the safe mode, restart your device by holding the power button, then power off and restart. The device will open in the normal mode automatically. All your apps and screens are preserved but...
