Title: Beginner’s Guide To Plugin Development


1
BEGINNERS GUIDE TO PLUGIN DEVELOPMENT
2
WHAT IS PLUG-IN?
  • Plugin is a software component that allows you to
    add features to your site and remain intact, even
    if you switch themes or upgrade your WordPress
    install. However there may be times where a
    plugin does not meet your specific needs. In this
    case you would want to hire plugin development to
    have it done exactly as you wanted and increase
    that twitter feed on website.

3
CREATING A PLUGIN
  • To make a WordPress plugin development from
    scratch, what you have to do first is to create a
    folder to store your plugin. Keep in mind that
    the name of your plugin folder will be your
    plugin slug.
  • This plugin slug should be unique. Unique in a
    way that no other plugin slug should have the
    same as what you have created.

4
FILTERS AND ACTION
  • Filters and actions permit for plug-in developers
    to update bits of code all over the WordPress
    admin panel pertaining to your new plug-in. This
    means you could add a new tab in the sidebar or
    additional settings links for your best WordPress
    photo gallery plugin options.
  • Filters allow you to modify or change data before
    it is used rather than implementing an additional
    action. While actions dont work on bits of data
    but instead target pre-defined areas in your
    templates and admin panel.

5
JAVASCRIPT INTERFACE
  • The JavaScript interface is the most important
    element in plugins. It provides front-facing
    interface. You are able to structure the
    JavaScript however you want to. But it is best to
    get plugin developers to have it done
    professionally and correctly.

6
VALIDATING
  • You can use a utility plugman to check if the
    plugin installs correctly for each platforms. To
    validate you will be needing a valid app source
    directory, an example of which is www that is
    in the default CLI-generated project as described
    in the command-line interface. You have to make
    sure that the index.html home page reference
    and the name of plugins JavaScript is the same.
  • If you are unsure of what to do, get a plugin
    development online to help you.

7
INSTALLATION
  • Download the plugin on the plugin page. Then go
    to the menu Tools gt Plugins gt Downloaded. After
    which, click on Add Plugin, and select the NBM or
    ZIP file you have just downloaded. Click on
    Install, and your plugin is installed.
  • Or perhaps, seek help from WordPress plugin
    development services to help you install your
    plugins.

  • These are some of the basics to get you started
    on plugin development. The plugin system is vast
    and holds a great deal of internal functionality.
    There are several things you can do with plugins
    and also many ways you can create them.
  • The understanding to do things right always comes
    after you do things wrong. Or better yet hire a
    plugin developers to help you instead.

DID YOU KNOW?
  • Wordpress is somehow the easiest and most
    powerful blogging and website content management
    system (or CMS) in existence today.
  • You can place plugins to add extra feature to
    WordPress. It can be designed to address to what
    you wanted precisely. Have a custom WordPress
    plugin developer who are proficient in different
    programming language.
