May I know if I can insert curtain plugin on a page. For example, if I edit page header.php. How do I want to insert a plugin on that page. The plugin that I want to use is Huge IT Image Gallery.

I tried to edit header.php and insert the code such as [huge_it_gallery id="4"] provided by the plugin, but the image gallery did not appear. Do I need to insert a <script></script> or the plugin directory on my header.php page.

I am new and still studying on the wordpress development.

    do_shortcode() will trigger a shortcode. Otherwise it typically only happens in post content.

do_shortcode Is a function which executes shortcodes in WordPress

In your case you should use it in your header.php file as the following:

<?php echo do_shortcode('[huge_it_gallery id="4"]'); ?>
