WordPress Developer Resources

Here are various WordPress developer resources that I find useful. Let me know of other resources I should add to the list.

The WordPress Codex – “the online manual for WordPress and a living repository for WordPress information and documentation.” – “Delightful tools for WordPress Developers” – (A new site) Contains code snippets and generators. – “Speed up and improve your WordPress development with Hasty”

Awesome WP Developer Tools – Compiled by Luke, located at Github. – “37 Free WordPress Developer Resources For Advance WordPress Users” – “WordPress boilerplates to use for your themes and plugins” – “A Detailed Guide To A Custom WordPress Page Templates” – “Clone your [Local ⇋ Live] sites instantly”

Whois tools (should likely be added to another list) – “WHOIS Tool: Find The Owner Of Any Domain Name in Seconds.” – “Find out Who is hosting any website.”

MXToolbox – Check email health along with other tools. – Add New Admin User in WordPress from PHP MyAdmin.

INSERT INTO 'database_name'.'wp_users' ('ID', 'user_login', 'user_pass', 'user_nicename', 'user_email', 'user_url', 'user_registered', 'user_activation_key', 'user_status', 'display_name') VALUES ('4', 'demo', MD5('demo'), 'Your Name', '', '', '2011-06-07 00:00:00', '', '0', 'Your Name');

INSERT INTO 'database_name'.'wp_usermeta' ('umeta_id', 'user_id', 'meta_key', 'meta_value') VALUES (NULL, '4', 'wp_capabilities', 'a:1:{s:13:"administrator";s:1:"1";}');

INSERT INTO 'database_name'.'wp_usermeta' ('umeta_id', 'user_id', 'meta_key', 'meta_value') VALUES (NULL, '4', 'wp_user_level', '10');

For more details check out: – “How to Use phpMyAdmin to Add an Admin User to the WordPress Database” – “Create a WordPress Admin User for A WordPress Site via MySQL (PHPMyAdmin)” – Create a simple 404.php file to redirect to front page.

header("HTTP/1.1 301 Moved Permanently");
header("Location: ".get_bloginfo('url'));

Place the file into your child theme root folder. Test it out by going to the domain name and /thensomething. If it is not an actual page or post it will redirect to the front page.
