I’ve started work on my first WordPress plugin. So far, I’ve managed to break my development web site several times; gotten the plugin to work partially several times, and added a menu to the “Manage” menu of the WordPress administration system. Of course, the page I’ve created there doesn’t actually do anything yet. It’s very exciting seeing the system not barf when I “activate” my plugin. Hopefully I can release the plugin to an unsuspecting world next week.
