Webdeveloper Code Snippets for your Website

These are all of my code snippets I post on Instagram to copy and paste.

If you like it you can leave me a follow on Instagram: @dario.evaristo.bellotta


Async & Defer to not render block

“Async – means execute code when it is downloaded and do not block DOM construction during downloading process. Defer – means execute code after it’s downloaded and browser finished DOM construction and rendering process.” Source: stackoverflow.com

<!-- JS files defer and async -->
<script src=""></script>
<script defer src=""></script>
<script async src=""></script>

Anonymize User IPs on Google Analytics

“When a customer of Universal Analytics requests IP-address anonymization, Analytics anonymizes the address as soon as technically feasible.” Source: support.google.com

<!-- Global site tag (gtag.js) - Google Analytics -->
<script async src="https://www.googletagmanager.com/gtag/js?id=YOUR-ID"></script>
var gaProperty = 'YOUR-ID';
var disableStr = 'ga-disable-' + gaProperty;
if (document.cookie.indexOf(disableStr + '=true') > -1) {
 window[disableStr] = true;
function gaOptout() {
 document.cookie = disableStr + '=true; expires=Thu, 31 Dec 2099 23:59:59 UTC; path=/';
 window[disableStr] = true;
 alert('Google Analytics tracking has been disabled in your browser for this website.');
var gaOptOut='ga-disable-YOUR-ID';
if (document.cookie.indexOf(gaOptOut+'=true')>-1) window[gaOptOut]=true;
window.dataLayer = window.dataLayer || [];
function gtag(){dataLayer.push(arguments);}
gtag('js', new Date());
gtag('config', 'YOUR-ID', { 'anonymize_ip': true });

JQuery load more button

Without any frameworks or libraries. xcept from JQuery 😁

<script src="https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/jquery/3.3.1/jquery.min.js"></script>
$(".content").slice(0, 3).show();
$("#loadMore").on("click", function(e){
$(".content:hidden").slice(0, 3).slideDown();
if($(".content:hidden").length == 0) {
$("#loadMore").text("No Content").addClass("noContent");
} }); })

<img class="content" src="Image01.png" />
<img class="content" src="Image02.png" />
<img class="content" src="Image03.png" />
<img class="content" src="Image04.png" />
<img class="content" src="Image05.png" />
<img class="content" src="Image06.png" />

<a href="#" id="loadMore">Load More</a>

Forcing a reload of your files

?v=X Its mainly used to take care of browser cache.
You can force a file to reload and not be stuck in cache.

<!-- image example -->
<img src="folder/file.png?v=2" />

<!-- script example -->
<script src="js/files.js?v=3"></script>

<!-- stylesheet example -->
<link rel="stylesheet" href="css/file.css?v=4">

Preloading your Fonts

“The preload value of the <link> element’s rel attribute lets you declare fetch requests in the HTML’s <head>, specifying resources that your page will need very soon, which you want to start loading early in the page lifecycle, before browsers’ main rendering machinery kicks in. This ensures they are available earlier and are less likely to block the page’s render, improving performance.”

Source: developer.mozilla.org

<!-- Preload Fonts -->
<link rel="preload" as="font" href="FIRST" type="font/otf" crossorigin="anonymous">
<link rel="preload" as="font" href="SECOND" type="font/ttf" crossorigin="anonymous">

Help Google crawling your site

“Schema.org is a collaborative, community activity with a mission to create, maintain, and promote schemas for structured data on the Internet, on web pages, in email messages, and beyond.”

<!-- Schema.org -->
<script type="application/ld+json"> 
{ "@context" : "http://schema.org", "@type" : "LocalBusiness", 
"name" : "NAME", 
"image": "IMAGE", 
"email": "EMAIL", 
"url": "URL", 
"address" : { "@type" : "PostalAddress", 
"addressLocality" : "STREET", 
"postalCode" : "POSTALCODE", 
"addressCountry": "DE" 
} } 

Open Graph for Facebook sharing

“Open Graph meta tags are snippets of code that control how URLs are displayed when shared on social media. They’re part of Facebook’s Open Graph protocol and are also used by other social media sites, including LinkedIn and Twitter (if Twitter Cards are absent). You can find them in the <head> section of a webpage. Any tags with og: before a property name are Open Graph tags.”

Source: ahrefs.com

<!-- Open Graph protocol -->
<meta property="og:url" content="">
<meta property="og:type" content="">
<meta property="og:title" content="">
<meta property="og:description" content="">
<meta property="og:image" content="">

Link sharing on Twitter

“With Twitter Cards, you can attach rich photos, videos and media experiences to Tweets, helping to drive traffic to your website. Simply add a few lines of markup to your webpage, and users who Tweet links to your content will have a “Card” added to the Tweet that’s visible to their followers.”

Source: developer.twitter.com

<!-- Twitter Cards -->
<meta name="twitter:card" content="summary_large_image">
<meta property="twitter:domain" content="">
<meta property="twitter:url" content="">
<meta name="twitter:title" content="">

<meta name="twitter:image" content="">
