Writing a WordPress Plugin

A session at HighEdWeb 2012

Wednesday 10th October, 2012

1:00pm to 4:30pm (CST)

During this workshop, we will write a simple WordPress plugin. I will take you through the basic steps of creating the plugin file, including the proper header, and using some basic API functions available in WordPress. As part of the plugin, we'll develop a new shortcode to be used anywhere within the content of posts and we'll develop a widget to be used in widgetized areas (such as sidebars and footers). We will also review the process of creating the "settings" area for the plugin to be displayed in the administration area of WordPress.
