A WordPress code snippet is a small bit of code that has been designed to be copied and pasted, usually into a plugin or theme. They can be very useful for speeding up development time and making sure we're using the same logic over and over again. They allow us to bypass the repetitive process of writing a lot of lines of code each time
WPCodeBox provides a WordPress code snippet repository, where you can find tried and tested code snippets that you can add to your site using one click.
Here are a few useful ones:
During website repair, maintenance mode allows you to display a user-friendly notification to your visitors instead of a broken site.

When dealing with a WordPress site, the trash button in the article list has no confirmation, which means you, or worse, your clients might mistakenly click it.
This snippet, while enabled, will hide the “Trash” link from the posts or pages lists, so your clients would need to go to the edit post or page section to actually send a post to trash.
When maintaining a WooCommerce store, you will definitely end up having orphaned product variations in the database. These are product variations that have no parent product. These variations can cause problems when exporting or importing products, and they can slow down your site.
You can run this Code Snippet from our Repository manually, and it will delete all the orphaned product variations.

This snippet will add a “Duplicate” link to the posts table and add this button next to each post title.
