If you are using WordPress then you must be using custom codes on the theme’s functions to enhance the site’s functionality. But has there been a situation when you or your client updates the theme and that all codes are gone? Well to avoid this, we can build our own custom plugins and use them instead of fucntions.php.

Using custom plugins instead of functions.php will avoid losing your codes on any updates or whatsoever. You will also not have to set up a child theme. Additionally, you can organize codes on the plugin and also hide it if required.
