About Develop with WordPress

This site is intended to be a resource for PHP and javascript developers who want to create web sites with the WordPress CRM software, to provide useful tips and guidance on PHP development generally and sometimes offer some advice on Unix System admin and setup.

A little history about WordPress. Although it started out as a blogging platform, WordPress can easily be configured and used in a much more general purpose way and is a very popular tool used my many millions of web sites across the Internet. Before I started using it I heard it had the reputation for being poorly written and buggy, but since I started using it as a development platform I’ve found it to be reliable and easy to work with. There are times when it’s procedural code style can be a bit old fashioned, but once you get used to it you find it is quick to turn ideas into working sites.

Personally, I am not a wordpress expert; I’ve been using it for about 18 months as a development platform, although I first set up wordpress sites in about 2006 when I worked for a small publishing company in Letchworth. What I’m aiming to do with this site is try to write up useful articles as I create new features on my other sites and expand my knowledge of WordPress.
