Creating WordPress Plugin: Experience and Efforts
Finally, today I give presentation on “Creating WordPress Plugin”. Actually I was working on project of creating website in WordPress. It is so easy to “Add New Page”, “Add New Post”, “Add / Install Plugin” etc. So in the whole project I did nothing that suites to CSE / IT student. Rai Sir suggested us (me & Vigas) to start exploring WordPress as developer and learn how to create Plugin. I finished my pending works of this project and started exploring the Internet and http://codex.wordpress.org.
Initially I started following a tutorial, in which they created plugin with widget settings but with little description about functions, variables etc. I read it again and again to understand thoroughly, but not satisfied. To get started, I decide to create a simple plugin, so I copied the code from that tutorial and kept only those basic parts, relevant to my simple plugin. Similarly, I add widget too. This whole process took my lot of effort but with less satisfaction.
Then I come back to main wordpress site. I directly go to “Writing a Plugin” and started reading and exploring more links to function definitions. In this way, I got understanding about the working of functions.
It was in my case that I got link in which much description was not given. It may be possible that one may found a highly informative and descriptive blog which may act as right approach. for him.
