How to develop a WordPress Plugin Submitted By

What is a Plugin?:

What is a Plugin? A plugin is a small software or a shortcode which allows users to add an extra set of features in the website while keeping the other functionalities intact. The best thing about Plugins is that they stay installed in the WordPress core, even if you change the theme or upgrade the WP version. However, there are may be times when you won't be able to find the desired plugin, in that case, you need to opt for the custom Wordpress plugin development services.

Creating a plugin?:

Creating a plugin? If you are starting WordPress Development from scratch, then the first thing you need to do is to create a folder where you would be storing your plugin. Bear this thing in mind that the name of your plugin folder will be your plugin slug. Try to make the plugin slug unique so that it doesn't match up with any other plugin.

Filters and Actions:

Filters and Actions These two allow the developers to update the parts of the plugin code all over the WordPress admin panel. It means that your plugin would be functional on all the pages of the website. Filters allow users to tweak the data before it is used, rather than implementing it on an additional action. On the other hand, actions don't work on bits but instead targets pre-defined areas in your templates and admin panel

Adding Javascript Interface:

Adding Javascript Interface It is the most important element in the plugin development phase. It offers the front-facing interface and allows users to able to structure the Javascript the way you want to. Make sure you hire the professional and skilled plugin developers who will help you get through this process.


Validating You can download and install a plugin to check whether your plugin is loaded properly or not. To validate you would be needing a valid app source directory. “www” which is the default CLI-generated project. Another thing you need to make sure is that the “index.html” homepage reference & the name of the Javascript is same. If you not sure, you can ask your developer to check it and make desired changes.


Installation Download your plugin on the plugin page. Then go to Tools > Plugins > Downloaded. After which, you have to click on the Add Plugin and choose the NBM or ZIP file which you have just downloaded. Follow these steps and your Plugin would be installed.
