How To Add Snapchat Snapcode Widget In WordPress?

Do you want to learn how to add Snapchat Snapcode to the WordPress site?

I am going to talk about the same in this post, where you will see how easy is it to add the Snapcode to a WordPress site.

Snapchat offers a Snapcode that other Snapchat users can scan and follow you so for a blogger who has an audience over Snapchat, this is going to be an amazing feature.

If you have a good audience base there, you can double that just by making your visitors easy to follow you by adding your Snapchat Snapcode on your site.

Let’s start and see how you can add it with a simple process.

How To Add Snapchat Snapcode On A WordPress Site?

First of all, you need to visit the Snapchat Snapcodes website which is the official site by Snapchat and log in with your Snapchat account.

Snapchat Snapcode website login

Once you are logged in, you will see a screen like the below image where you can find the two buttons.

Snapchat Snapcode download

Click on the Download Snapcode button to download your Snapcode. A zip file will be downloaded immediately when you click the button.

You need to extract that Zip file, you can use any zip file extractor tool such as WinRAR. After extracting the file, you will find two files, both are your Snapcodes in two formats, PNG and SVG.

These images are actually QR code that your users can scan to follow you on the Snapchat platform.

Now there are two methods to add the Snapcode to your WordPress site. I will show you both of them and you can choose one that you find good for you.

Manually Add Snapcode In WordPress

Both just image files containing the QR code that will redirect the Snapchat users to your Snapchat profile so they can follow you.

You can upload any of these images on your website by going to Media>Add New and using that wherever you want, be it on posts, pages or sidebar.

In this way, you can easily add your Snapchat Snapcode to your WordPress blog without needing any plugin for this small task.

But if you are looking for a plugin method then here it is:

Add It Using Snapchat Snapcode Widget

If anyhow, the first method doesn’t work for you or you don’t like it! Then there is another way to add the Snapcode in WordPress.

Install the Snapchat Snapcode Widget plugin by going to Plugins>Add New from your WordPress admin dashboard.

The plugin is completely free to use…

Once the plugin is installed and activated on your site, go to Appearance>Widgets and add a new widget by clicking on the + button there.

Now search for the Snapchat Snapcode widget from the available widgets list.

Snapchat Widget

Click on the widget to add that to your sidebar.

There will be some fields that you need to fill like the title and username. Also, you need to upload your Snapcode that you downloaded from the Snapchat Snapcodes site.

Once you are done, hit the update button at the top right corner to make the changes live on your site.

Snapchat Snapcode added on site

That’s it! This is how you can add your Snapchat Snapcode to your WordPress site.

Both the methods are quite easy to follow but I recommend doing it manually because you only need to upload you’re snapped and place it wherever you want to use it.

Why add a new plugin when you can easily do it without a plugin? Right!
