All lynda.com members will have access to the code snippets that we'll use throughout this course. We'll be accessing this file throughout the course to quickly add bits of code to our site. If you look at the Exercise Files folder you'll see we have a codesnippets file and also a list of folders for each of the chapters, if you're a premium member. The codesnippets file contains code snippets for all the chapters in which I'm typing in a lot of code. I don't always use this codesnippets file, but if you see me typing in a lot of code chances are there is a code snippet that you can grab and use instead.
I've marked each code snippet with the number of the chapter and the number of the movie so they're easy to find, and in cases where we need to insert code snippets in different files I've also marked that in the file. So for example, in this case you need to insert a code snippet in functions.php, so that's denoted in the codesnippets file. If you're a premium member, you also have access to these jump-in files. What we've done is made snapshots of each of the movies at the starting point; meaning if you want to jump into say Chapter 5 movie, number 6 and you haven't done the previous movies, you can open the folder for this movie, and then open a second folder, navigate to WordPress on your computer, go to wp-content > themes, and then simply grab the child theme from your lesson files and drag them into the themes folder, and overwrite the existing folder that's already there.
That way you'll be at the same point I am when I start each movie.
