Вероятно книгата би била полезна на програмисти, експериментиращи с WordPress, без да го владеят. Научих неща, които не знаех. Започва хубаво и полезно, първата половина препоръчвам.

От някакъв момент след средата изпитвах трудност да се съсредоточа върху съдържанието и бях на косъм да я зарежа. Вероятно претупването на безполезните за вас глави е критично важно, за да успеете да прочетете тази книга.

A good and comprehensive book to learn about different topics a plugin developer must know. the style of writing is good and very organized and teaches you how things work.

After reading many chapters of this book. I realized that WP isn't just CMS. It could really work as a complete framework which you can extend in any way you want. By starting to develop Plugins, you could overcome all the limitations you thought WP had.

One of the things that I liked very much is the $wpdb. I was really restr
