Hot Trend: How to add Snapchat to WordPress

I already 27 years old and I didn’t really know what is Snapchat until now and I am not freaking much trendy social media tool anyway.

After trying the app a few times, for me, it seemed confusing and to be honest also feel strange to me. But I thought to myself “I am not in age for use this”. So I looked for a quick way in google search  “How to Snapchat”. This helped me a lot to get information the app and an idea on how to use it. Now I am not sure really enjoy with Snapchat.

1. What is a Snapcode?

Every Snapchat user will receive a snapcode. A snapcode is a Snapchat profile picture with a unique QR code that other users can scan to add you to their Snapchat account. The snapcode is an easy way to add new friends to your Snapchat, so you are able to see their snaps and stories.

To get your snapcode you need to log into your account on this Snapchat site. After logging in you will see a download link to download a zip folder containing your snapcode image in png and svg formats.

2. Add your Snapcode Image to WordPress

Now that you have your snapcode image you want to add it to your WordPress website, so that your visitors can add you to their Snapchat by scanning the image. The easiest way to add your snapcode to WordPress is using the Snapchat Snapcode Widget plugin. After the plugin installation, you will see the new widget under Appearance / Customize / Widgets (or under Appearance / Widgets). In the widget settings you can upload your png snapcode image and include your Snapchat user name.

Alternatively and especially if you are already using the Jetpack plugin, you can use the Jetpack Image widget to add your snapcode image. In this case, you will need to add your Snapchat URL directly. The URL format is:

https://www.snapchat.com/add/profilename

So you only need to change “profilename” to your own Snapchat username (e.g. https://www.snapchat.com/add/whilestudio).
