This section describes how to install the plugin and get it working.

  1. Upload kontur-copy-code-button.php to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory

  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress

  3. Go to WordPress Admin > Appearance > Copy Code Button and change your settings

Note: To use your normal theme button settings ’empty’ the background color setting and the button text color setting. And also set the appropriate class(es) in the settings field.


Where do I find the settings?

Under WordPress Admin > Appearance Copy Code Button or click the link ‘Settings’ under the plugin in your WordPress Admin Plugins section.

Do I have to configure a he** of a lot before I can use it?

Actually, you don’t. Not really. Once the plugin is activated, it will add its magic to your “code blocks”. The default text on the button is “Copy me”, with “Code copied” appearing once the code has been copied to the clipboard.

What icons can I use

If you want to use an icon, you can either use our predefined one, choose one from your library or simply upload your own

Can I set classes to trigger the ones already used within my theme?

Yes, on the settings page you can add classes.

Will there be more options in the future?

Yes. We are working on integrating the options as well into the Gutenberg blocks, fo e.g. having individial “copy texts” for each block. As well we want to offer more copy-icons.

Do you offer any other plugins I could use

Yes, we got three of them you’d might like:

I need something else. Can I hire you?

Yes. Please get in touch via email email with a brief description of your requirements and budget for the project and we will start something else together.

This plugin is simple, but I want to show my appreciation?

Well, go for it! You can either make a donation or leave a rating to motivate me to keep working on the plugin.
