Introduction to WordPress Plugins

Do you want to stop losing customers for not knowing how to create plugins?

Are you also trying desperately to learn how to create your own plugins, but are not succeeding? You’ve been trying for a few years now, but still haven’t found good and up-to-date teaching material. Then got tired of simply looking at how long is the WordPress documentation for plugin creators.

Plugins are part of what makes WordPress be what it is, the most used content management system in the world, present in more than 30% of sites worldwide! Learning how to deal with the WordPress plugin engine will set you free from third-party tools. It will also put a powerful knowledge in your hands that will help you reach new clients, financial independence, or at least a new job or a promotion at work.

All will start with this course!

What exactly will you learn?

Here is a shortlist of the main topics covered by this course. You will learn:

  • How to use WordPress action hooks and filters to your advantage to control the behavior of plugins and make them more flexible;
  • How to structure your projects in a cleaner and more flexible way using PHP classes and objects;
  • How to use the main native WordPress APIs, classes, and functions to create your plugin. For example, the Settings, Options, Widgets, Shortcode, Metabox APIs, and the methods of the very powerful $wpdb class;
  • How to create custom post types (CPTs), making WordPress the perfect framework for any project you want to create;
  • How to create your own taxonomies, custom menus, options pages, your own widgets and shortcodes with multiple options, metadata boxes with custom fields, etc;
  • How to add stylesheets and javascript in both the admin and the frontend and control them via the options pages;
  • How to install and preview what to do when installing, deactivating, and uninstalling the plugin;
  • How to control the plugin’s template in the frontend, as well as create a WooCommerce-like template override system;
  • How to create specific theme support for your plugin.

And much more! How about learning how to manage a custom table for your plugin in the WordPress database?

Do you know all the WordPress tables? Do you know what they do and how they are structured? You’ll learn all about them here!

In addition, you will learn how to perform all CRUD actions (create, read, update, and delete data) on your own table using the super powerful $wpdb class.

Have you ever thought of leaving the limitations that the WordPress system imposes and building your project based on a separate table? In this course, you will learn how to do it, understand in which cases it is necessary, and what are the advantages and disadvantages.

And it doesn’t stop here…

Creating a Fully Translatable Plugin

What about making your plugin go international?

You will learn how to create plugins that are fully translatable. Customers from all over the world will be able to use them, as they will be fully compatible with Poedit or any WordPress translation plugin.

WordPress Plugins for Every Project

How is this course different?

What my students like most is my excellent response time to their questions. You know, waiting too long can slow down your progress. So I always try to answer within 24 hours. You can be sure that you will never feel alone in this course.

Do you have any doubts? Here’s what my student Captain Krik recently wrote about one of my courses:

“Fantastic teacher, everything is explained clearly and simply. The lessons deepen in a professional way the aspects most suitable for a developer, as promised by the author. A big thank you to Marcello who made me learn new and interesting things. I also immediately bought the WordPress course which promises the same things.”

And this one is from my student Nate S:

“I was going to wait until I finish the course to leave a review, but I’m halfway through and I can already say it’s one of the absolute best courses I’ve taken on Udemy. It does not waste your time dwelling on extraneous concepts like CSS and does not use any unnecessary technology that might require extra setup or become outdated like Webpack. It’s straight to the point and extremely clear in every topic discussed in each video. He is also quick to respond and provides links for each topic as well as the full course code for easy troubleshooting. Just fantastic! If he makes another WordPress course, I will be taking it.”

And the list goes on…
