Here is one place you can start if you are looking for basic info on creating a plugin:


Create a file in the plugins folder. Call it whatever you’d like.


Place a comment block at the top like this, filling in the info specific to your plugin:

Plugin Name: My Plugin
Plugin URI:
Description: This is a plugin
Version: 1.0
Author: Kenny Ray
Author URI:
License: GPL2

At this point, you will see your Plugin in the plugins section of the site admin.
