Wordpress Themes - WP Forum at BFA
There will be no more development for Atahualpa (or any other theme), and no support. Also no new registrations. I turned off the donation system. I may turn the forum to read only if it gets abused for spam. Unfortunately I have no time for the forum or the themes. Thanks a lot to the people who helped in all these years, especially Larry and of course: Paul. Take care and stay healthy -- Flynn, Atahualpa developer, Sep 2021

Add snippet of PHP code to header area (custom widgets)

Add snippet of PHP code to header area (custom widgets)

Hi all,

Quick question: where would I add a bit of PHP code that I want to appear in my header area? I have created a custom header area with 2 widget areas, and obviously I can't use PHP code in a widget. I tried looking at the theme files, but could not determine where I should put it.

Here is the code:

PHP Code:
<div id="btn-cart" class="fr">
<a href="<?php echo $woocommerce->cart->get_cart_url(); ?>" title="<?php _e('View your shopping cart''woothemes'); ?>">
echo sprintf(_n('%d item &ndash; ''%d items &ndash; '$woocommerce->cart->cart_contents_count'woothemes'), $woocommerce->cart->cart_contents_count);
And here is a link to my site: http://www.laurenacooper/AFAR

I would like for the cart information (code above) to be displayed between the search bar and the navigation bar in the header.

I'm using the most current version of WP and Atahualpa, and Woocommerce as my shopping cart.

Any help is greatly appreciated

actually you can use php in a widget if you use a plugin like 'exec php'. You can not put php in the theme options anymore due to a WordPress restriction that prevents themes from doing it (why they let widget's do and not themes is a curious question)

Try using the plugin and see it that solves your issue
