How to Add a Copy Button to Code Blocks on Your Blog
This is a useful bit of code and I want to share it in this post. Which is funny… since I’m going to also be utilizing the Copy functionality to give you the code to use to create Copy functionality!
Step 1: Set up the <code> tags in your HTML
Step 2: Give some style to your copy buttons
Add this code before the closing body tag in your page’s settings and publish your site. I added comments throughout to explain what each part is doing.
You should now see that any <code> elements have the copy button. Test it out and see if you’re able to successfully copy the code!
Pro tip: I’m also using a code-highlighting script from Finsweet to create the syntax highlighting.
