How does it work?
Easy Code Manager is designed to be easy to learn and fun to use. In fact, adding scripts and styles can be done in as little as two steps:
* adding your code directly into unique code blocks
* assigning where these code blocks go
ECM code blocks can be assigned to the header of pages, posts, and categories. If you require more placement accuracy, then you can use code block shortcodes and place them directly in the editor of your page or post.
- If you’re upgrading from older versions its highly recommended to backup your database before upgrading.
- Upload the ‘easy-code-manager’ folder to the ‘/wp-content/plugins/’ directory
- Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
- Click ‘Easy Code Manager’ link in the main navigation (left side of your Dashboard).
Why was the ECM plugin developed and what is it used for?
What is a ECM ‘code block’?
The ECM code block is the basic unit for writing code and to associate it with specific WordPress requests.
What is the Assignment Panel?
The Assignment Panel is a tabs window, which appears on the right side of the code block editor and is used to assign/apply the code block into specific requests.
Can you select more than one item from the Assignment Panel?
Yes. You can select any number of items you need, there is no limitation regarding this.
Can you assign multiple blocks to the same items from the Assignment Panel?
Yes. It’s one of the most useful features that ECM supports as it allows you to manage/split your codes into several code blocks, allowing you to override code in a former (or lower ordered) code block.
What are Pages, Posts, and Categories tabs?
These lists with checkboxes represent all of your WordPress Pages, Posts, and Categories that your entire website contains. It also supports subpages and sub-categories, which you will also find in there.
Can I use shortcodes in my posts or pages for the code blocks?
Yes, you can use shortcodes to insert code blocks onto your desired post or page.
Can I move the blocks around?
Yes, by hovering your mouse cursor over the code block title bar until it turns into a four-sided arrow, this allow you to move the blocks. Clicking the block title bar allows you to open and close the blocks.
Are code blocks saved after I click ‘Create’ in ‘Create New Code Block’ form?
Yes. The block is created and saved in your database. In order to discard the block, you have to delete it.
Are ordering of code blocks immediately saved after drag-and-drop actions?
No. In order to save the new code block order, you need to press ‘Save All Changes’ button.
Are code blocks permanently deleted after it has been removed from the blocks list page?
No. After you delete the code block, you need to click ‘Save All Changes’ button.
