EXCERPT FROM CHAPTER 3 Power Tips For WordPress Template Developers—by Jacob Goldman
"With its latest releases, WordPress has extended its potential well beyond blogging, moving toward an advanced, robust and very powerful content management solution. By default, WordPress delivers a very lightweight, minimal system that offers only basic functionalities. But where the WordPress core falls short, there are a wealth of plug-ins that extend its limitations. Plug-ins often offer simple solutions, but they are not always elegant solutions: in particular, they can add a noticable overhead, e.g. if they offer more functionality than needed. In fact, some general and frequently needed WordPress-functionalities can be added to the engine without bloated plugins, using the software itself".
EXCERPT FROM CHAPTER 6 Ten Things Every WordPress Plugin Developer Should Know—by Dave Donaldson
"The first thing you should do when developing a WordPress plugin is to enable debugging, and I suggest leaving it on the entire time you’re writing plugin code. When things go wrong, WordPress raises warnings and error messages, but if you can’t see them then they might as well have not been raised at all. Enabling debugging also turns on WordPress notices, which is important because that’s how you’ll know if you’re using any deprecated functions. Deprecated functions may be removed from future versions of WordPress, and just about every WordPress release contains functions slated to die at a later date. If you see that you are using a deprecated function, it’s best to find its replacement and use that instead".
