Professional WordPress Plugin Development, the new book I co-authored, is the definitive guide to developing professional plugins for the open-source platform WordPress.

This book covers a wide range of plugin dev topics including:

  • Plugin foundation
  • Creating widgets and shortcodes
  • Custom post types and taxonomies
  • WordPress coding standards and styles

This book is the first of its kind with the many advanced topics covered. Most of these topics have never been in print! Advanced plugin development topics include:

  • HTTP API including Google Map examples
  • JavaScript and Ajax
  • Cron event scheduling
  • Rewrite API and query handling
  • Multisite networks
  • and more!
Including 80+ fully functional plugin examples and tutorials for download
