I want to run a JavaScript and I want to paste in inside the <head></head> tag

I do not want to add it to the text-view area.

How can I add this code snippet to an individual post (I mean not editing the headers.php)?

  • Google about these terms wp_head, is_page(), is_single()! – Sumit Apr 15 '16 at 6:05

You want to hook into the Header code using something like this:


function hook_javascript() {
    if (is_single('123')) { 
        $output="<script> enter your script here </script>";
        echo $output;

    As @cybmeta pointed out on another answer, it would probably be better using wp_enqueue_scripts if you're using a javascript file rather than a few lines of code. – TomC Apr 15 '16 at 7:43
  • This is the correct answer, but just to add to it in case the original poster isn't aware, the place to put this code is in your theme's functions.php – Tim Malone Apr 15 '16 at 10:40
