Load a template part into a template

Makes it easy for a theme to reuse sections of code in a easy to overload way for child themes.

Includes the named template part for a theme or if a name is specified then a specialised part will be included. If the theme contains no {slug}.php file then no template will be included.

The template is included using require, not require_once, so you may include the same template part multiple times.

For the $name parameter, if the file is called “{slug}-special.php” then specify “special”.

Signature

get_template_part( $slug, $name = null )
slug
 (string) The slug name for the generic template.
name
 (string) The name of the specialised template.
Default: null

Return

(void)
