I started to learn PHP, MySQL after I got in touch with HTML-CSS(where I created a simple site with CSS for Maharashtra Mandal ,BITS Pilani though it was never used 😛 ).
The Login form had always excited me. I learnt how it worked and found out what I would have to learn to make one myself. I found many options available to me such as Ruby on Rails, Python – Django and PHP.
I had written about my First Plugin in the previous post. I obviously made some changes in that with further Checkouts and Commits.
After this, I started to work upon a New Plugin named ‘Blog_Tools’ similar to the First, but with more Flexibility and more options. This Plugin would not only show the ‘No. of Views of a Post/Page‘ but also the the ‘Last-Viewed-time‘. In the admin-dashboard, It also shows the ‘ip of the last viewer‘ for all the posts and pages.
As I have mentioned before, I wanted to contibute to the development of PHP Based Open Source CMSes. I decided to start with Plugin Development for WordPress. A large and nice Documentation on WordPress itself, Very large number of Tutorials on other sources on web and a supa-large and an always ready-to-help community were important factors that influenced in my decision.
As I started to understand basic structure of the Plugins, I wanted a simple idea to work upon.
