Best Practices - Wordpress Plugin Making

Hello to all, welcome to In this post, I will tell, Best Practices – WordPress Plugin Making.

WordPress is the top CMS in the world and I personally like it very much.

Today I am going to tell, how wordpress plugin will make with proper wordpress standards.

In this post, I will create plugin folder->  files->  classes-functions-shortcode-hooks->  zip->  uploadAdmin->  getShortcode.

Best Practices - WordPress Plugin Making


Here are the working and tested code for Best Practices WordPress Plugin Making:


1. Very First make a  folder named ‘wp-rich-text’.
2. Second, create ‘wp-rich-text.php’ file in ‘wp-rich-text’ folder and below code into it:

This is the main file of plugin, in which we declare plugin info and other methods:

 * Plugin Name: Rich Plugin
 * Plugin URI: #
 * Description: #

define( 'RICH_PLUGIN_DIR' , plugin_dir_path( __FILE__ ));//For calling the files
  require_once( RICH_PLUGIN_DIR. '' );


3. Next, create, ‘’ file in wp-rich-text’ folder and below code into it:

In this file, we create class and its functions and wordpress hooks:

Plugin classes
class RichData{

  public static function init() {

        function custom_text( $atts ){
            return "test";
        add_shortcode( 'RichText', 'custom_text' );//create shortcode to call the function into admin pages and theme's template files
add_action( 'init', array( 'RichData', 'init' ));
4. Now files and folder structure have been done now make a zip of ‘wp-rich-text’ and upload it from add plugin section into your wordpress dashboard.


5. To call the plugin functionality, we need to add shortcode into our wp-admin posts, pages or theme’s templates files:
// Call the shortcode into wp-admin posts and pages with below code

//Call the shortcode into theme's templates files with below code
echo do_shortcode('[RichText]');


This is done with basic plugin marking tips in wordpress. if you have any query related to it then do comment below or ask questions.

Code Is Poetry,

Thank you,
