Important: These snippets are bound to the PHP language context in Visual Studio Code. This means that your cursor will need to be inside a set of PHP tags in order to be triggered.
Start typing the WordPress function, constant or class name that you want to use, and the extension will provide an auto-complete list of matching entities. You can also use Emmet-style abbreviations. For example, type gtp for the get_template_part function snippet.
Once you’ve selected the correct entity, press Enter to trigger the snippet.
Use the Tab key to move through each function argument, where applicable. The extension provides a type hint for each argument and automatically selects each argument block for ultra-fast function completion.
Configuration & Options
The extension itself doesn’t require any configuration. However, if you’d like to trigger these snippets from within other snippets (for example, say you want to autocomplete get_the_ID( ) as the first function parameter of get_the_terms( )) you’ll need to uncheck the Snippets Prevent Quick Suggestions setting in Visual Studio Code.
This setting can be found in Editor > Suggest: Snippets Prevent Quick Suggestions.
If the snippets are not triggering, ensure that your cursor is between a set of PHP script tags.
