#WordPress #Plugin #Development

hello and welcome everyone to this new course of advanced wordpress plugin development and in this video we are going to talk about the plugin basics …. so many of you might already be using a wordpress plugin so what do you think a wordpress plugin is well in simple terms as the name says plug in which means plug in your functionality into wordpress that’s the simplest way to understand if you want any more functionalities to be added than what what this already offers you just plug in your code okay so basically plug-in is packages of code that extend the core functionality of wordpress now wordpress offers the bare minimum the bare basics which most people will use and then depending on your need what your client wants or what your project wants you can extend those functionalities but by adding your own so that’s why wordpress doesn’t want to bloat its core by adding additional functionalities which not everyone might want to use so the plugin contains the php code and can include even other assets such as images css and javascript in fact many of the plugins are also built to just add maybe a few gutenberg blocks that can be used along with your own theme so essentially by making your own plugin you’re extending wordpress that is building additional functionalities on top of what wordpress already offers like for example using wordpress custom post types you could write a plugin that creates full-featured support for ticketing system that has email notifications custom ticket status and a client facing portal you must have seen that there are a lot of plugins available that give you entire booking system like event management right so the possibilities are endless now let me ask you a quick question do you know which was the wordpress first plugin yes you guessed it right that was hello dolly so what did this plugin do well it’ll be interesting for you to know that this plugin only had 100 lines of code all right this means that a plug-in doesn’t have to be a complex with so many functionality it could be probably doing just one thing with a simple few lines of code just a couple of functions okay so it really depends what you’re trying to achieve with your plugin you know if you plug in offers many features that is fine however if your plugin offers just one feature that is also okay so this plugin actually showed the lyrics from the famous songs in wordpress admin so now we understand what a plug-in is we understood that what are the examples of the plug-in the functionalities that you can use but why make one what’s even need of making the plug-in well there’s one cardinal rule and that says do not attach wordpress core okay now why do you think you shouldn’t touch wordpress core well the main reason is that if there’s any update that comes into wordpress and if you go ahead and edit your wordpress core files then you’re going to lose those changes right so that is why it is essential that you do not edit the code wordpress file to add your functionalities and as we discussed that wordpress overrides the code files with each update so any functionalities you want to add or modify should be done using plugins so so now that we have established that plugins actually allow you to greatly extend the functionalities of wordpress without touching wordpress code itself you can maintain your own version of plugin and even plugins have version system like wordpress does so you can maintain your own plug-in version so if they are making any changes you can release those changes with different versions you can create tags so we will talk about all of that in in this video series and we’ll also learn how to upload your own wordpress plugin on the wordpress org so in the next video we are going to learn about how to create our first wordpress plugin from scratch okay so i hope you did like the video if you did please give a thumbs up and do subscribe to my channel if you aren’t already do follow me on github my github handle is imran h syed and do follow me on twitter as well my twitter handle is kodi tech i’m gonna see you in the next video thank you very much bye …. so …. you
