How to Add Theme Specific Conditional Code in WordPress

Snippets by IsItWP

Are you looking for a way to add theme specific conditional code? While there’s probably a plugin for this, we have created a quick code snippet that you can use to add theme specific conditional code in WordPress.

This can be used for the conditional code for a specific theme only. It can only be used in conjunction with “theme switching plugins” if the desired “theme specific plugin” comes after the “theme switch plugin” in order of execution.


All you have to do is add this code to your theme’s index.php file:

	if (get_current_theme() == 'Theme Name') {
		echo '# code...';

Note: If this is your first time adding code snippets in WordPress, then please refer to our guide on how to properly copy / paste code snippets in WordPress, so you don’t accidentally break your site.
