Today we will take you through the creation of your first WordPress plug-in. We' ll keep the workshop simple to provide for the first programmer who has little to no PHP skills (the scriptsolguage behind WordPress). However, before we get into the programming itself, we will take a look at some things you should know about developing WordPress plugins.
This section describes the first few things you need to do to create a WordPress plug-in. Furthermore, we will discuss all the different things you need to consider when writing your plug-in. First of all you have to think up a clear name for your WordPress plug-in.
The best way to find a good name is to think about what your plug-in will do. For example, if your plug-in helps humans distribute via community networks, you can add the term "social networking" to the name. One more thing, plug-in name can be multiple words, so don't take the creative out of your sight.
The name of your plug-in must be unambiguous to prevent conflict with other plug-ins. In addition, you can browse the various plug-in folders, as well as the WordPress plug-in repositories. In order to name a plug-in, we need to at least make one plug-in filename (the primary PHP file) that will take us to our next section. You can make a plug-in from a PHP executable or from several executables, according to what it is made for.
Its most important filename is the primary PHP filename, which is the equivalents to index.php and index.html in WordPress topics or HTML styles. WordPress developer is advised to name their primary plug-in files after their plugins. Example would be the default plug-in for a plug-in named WP Renym plug-in wp-renym.php.
Once you have set the plug-in to use, pack your master directory into a zipped package (in this case it would be wp-renym. zipped archive) that will be loaded and placed on a WordPress page. If you name your plug-in, you should include other information such as your name, title, name, title, release, version, licence, etc. - essentially everything that appears under and next to your plug-in in the WordPress plugins screen - the plug-in headers.
To do this, you must use a default plug-in information head at the top of your primary PHP files. Simply make sure that you specify the appropriate http:// or https:// when you write your plug-in and authors URLs, otherwise the link will not work. For more information about WordPress plug-in hook, templating tag, storing plug-in information in database, plug-in option mechanisms, upgrading your plug-in, and more, see how to write a plug-in manual in the code.
It also contains an extensive set of plug-in resources that is full of movie tutorials, cutting-edge themes and more. Well, now that we have taken the groundwork, we are writing a simple WordPress plug-in that will execute two fundamental (but clever) functions: This section will contain coding for the WP Renym plug-in that I mentioned all along.
First we reviewed the WordPress plug-in library and did a Google lookup for our name; WinNym was free. Next.... Open a new filename in your source text box and insert the following above after opening your plug-in with
