wordpress-loveAs a sometimes website builder, I often get asked as to which platform is “the best.” Generally after someone has already put money into a project or started the venture themselves.

Most developers know how to add and install WordPress plugins and even write WordPress themes from scratch, but also learning how to write and develop WordPress plugins can also be an invaluable skill. Many developers release free WordPress plugins to market their own business, while others offer paid plugins to bring in additional residual income.

For whatever reason, any skilled developer with knowledge of PHP can create his or her own WordPress plugin. This tutorial will take you through the basics of WordPress plugin development.

Step One: Make Sure You Have The Most Recent WordPress.org Version Installed on Your Computer.

This tip from Nettuts+ ensures that it is easy to upload your plugin into WordPress once it is finished. Remember, all fields must be filled out in order for the plugin to be recognized in WordPress. This will be discussed in more detail later in the tutorial.
