Verify Ownership of Your Website

92

Claim your website to become a Hvr Sitepartner and have your latest content delivered to users across the app. 

Your site is claimed by adding an HTML tag to your website’s source code. An HTML tag is a piece of text that describes a web page’s content. By adding an HTML tag to your website’s source code, Hvr will confirm that you own your website. Once claimed, the tag can be removed. 

Before You Begin

Verify that you or your business own a second-level domain (example.com), a subdomain (ads.example.com) or a subpath domain (example.com/blog). 

Please note, website hosts have different instructions for accessing their source codes. We have included full instructions here for WordPress and Squarespace with links to other popular website platforms below.

Adding an HTML Tag to Your Header in WordPress

If you want to add HTML to your WordPress header there are three possible solutions. We recommend the third option!

  1. Manually, by editing your theme’s header.php and footer.php files
  2. With your theme’s built-in header and footer code feature
  3. Using a plugin

The first option requires you to add header code by directly editing the header.php files manually. If you know your way around WordPress, this can be a quick option to add header code to your website. Please note, using this method, your code will be removed if you update your theme.

This video will show you how to edit the header.php file.

Some WordPress themes offer a built-in option for quickly adding code and scripts to your WordPress header. These settings can be found within your Theme Options >> Header settings. If you change your theme, all code snippets added to your website will be removed.

This third option is by far the easiest and safest method to add header or footer code in WordPress.

The ‘Insert Headers and Footers’ plugin is 100% free, 5-star rated, and allows users to easily add code to the header or footer in WordPress.

Benefits to using The Headers & Footers plugin:

  1. Easy, Fast, and Organized: It lets you easily add code to your site’s header.
  2. Prevents Errors: This plugin helps prevent errors which may occur if you edit your theme files manually.
  3. If you upgrade or change your theme, the plugin will save your header and footer code so you don’t have to worry about the code being removed.

The first thing you need to do is install and activate the Insert Headers and Footers plugin.

To add a new plugin, go to the Plugins section of your WordPress blog and tap ‘Add new’, then type ‘Headers and Footers’ in the search bar. You will see this plugin pop up as the first search result, tap Install. Once the plugin has been installed, tap Activate.

Visit your ‘Installed Plugins’ menu and tap on ‘Code Snippets’. On the left-hand side of the screen, you will see ‘Headers and Footers’ under the ‘Code Snippets’ menu.

Tap this section to be taken to the screen where you can add code to your WordPress <head> section. Insert the code from Hvr to the ‘Header’ Section and tap save.

The plugin will automatically load the code in the <head> section across your WordPress site. We recommend clearing your WordPress cache after saving the changes, to ensure the code correctly shows up on the front-end of your website.

  • You’ll need to keep the plugin installed and activated at all times. Deactivating the plugin will remove all custom code to your site.

You can now return to the Hvr app and tap ‘I’ve inputted the code’ in the Sitepartner Signup to submit your Sitepartner Application.
