WordPress Hacks is a course for anyone that wants to customize their WordPress site without resorting to third–party plugins. In the course, you will first learn how to modify the functions.php file and your theme to change and add features to your site. Then you will learn how to build your own simple plugin to use as your main tool for making modifications.
The course teaches four ways to customize WordPress to suit your needs: Shortcodes, Filters, Actions and Widgets. By making your own Shortcodes you can insert text into your posts that can later be controlled and adjusted. Filters allow you to change the content across your site. Actions give you the power to alter how WordPress works to fit your needs. Widgets let you put custom dynamic content in the sidebars and footers of your site.
The course uses very simple PHP code and assumes that you have WordPress installed and know how to access and modify files on your server. You should have a basic understanding of programming, but only beginner’s knowledge is needed to get started. Each skill is taught using real examples that can be useful on their own. Then you can build on these examples to create hacks that fit your needs.
