PHP Everywhere

I created this plugin because I have not found a Wordpress PHP plugin which is simple to use and provides a good user experience while being able to use PHP or HTML in Posts, Pages or Widgets. It is able to use multiple PHP instances and has built in role management. Since it’s start in 2014 more than 25.000 websites have installed the plugin and are happily using it to run their custom PHP code.


About this plugin

This plugin enables embedded PHP code in pages, posts and Widgets. You can use it to create any interactive media that is not supported by WordPress without overloading your WordPress installation with plugins.

I maintain this plugin in my limited free time. Therefore all support is appreciated. Feel free to buy me a coffee or contribute by answering support tickets on

You can have multiple PHP instances by placing multiple PHP Everywhere Blocks in your editor

Posts & Pages (By using a shortcode)

Edit or create a new post or page and simply put your PHP Code including the PHP tags into the side options_box, which is labeled “PHP Everywhere”. Then put the


shortcode where you want the code to appear. Your code may contain multiple lines or HTML Tags.

Multiple PHP instances

If you want to use multiple PHP instances use the shortcode with the instance parameter like this:

[php_everywhere instance="1"]

echo("Number one!");
echo("Number two!");
