Check if we are currently using the WordPress customizer

⚠️ Code snippets might not be compatible with the latest version of your theme. Always use a child theme to customize your theme, and test your code on a staging website before migrating to production.

Howdy developer!

Sometimes it might be the case that you need to execute actions only if the user is in the customization context => using the WordPress customizer. Here’s a quick snippet to check that.

I use the following condition statement, checking if the $_REQUEST[‘wp_customize’]  is defined to verify that :

if ( isset( $_REQUEST['wp_customize'] ) ) {

//some code to execute while in the customizer


else {

//some code to execute if not in the customizer


 Hope this helps!
