Coding your own plugin if you haven’t done it before may feel like you’re venturing into no man’s land, especially if you’re not super confident about your PHP skills. The challenge is knowing how to get started – and being open to making mistakes along the way.

Plugins allow you to add all kinds of functionality to WordPress, from adding a simple contact form to a page to beefing up your security and adding eCommerce capabilities. If you can dream it up, there’s probably a plugin that can do it – or an idea for a plugin you can build yourself.

This is the final video in our five-part series for beginners, teaching you the fundamental concepts of WordPress development so you can take the leap from tinkerer to developer. By the end of the series, you should be able to create your own rudimentary themes and plugins, and flesh them out with your own features.

In this video, you’ll learn how to code your own plugin so you can modify the functionality of your WordPress site, third party plugins and even themes.
