WordPress CMS is written in PHP programming language.
WordPress is undoubtedly an excellent CMS system – very extensive and offering many plugins and possibilities.
However, we always come to the point where programming skills are necessary to meet the needs of our client. Very often, customer requirements are so unusual that when creating a company website, online store or other web application based on the WordPress engine – we have to reach for an individual solution.
Not all matters can be solved by finding the appropriate plug on the Internet. Sometimes you just need to modify the template source code or write your own plugin.
WordPress is written in the PHP programming language and its structure is open. This means that if you know PHP, you will be able to modify any plugin, website template or widget.
The ability to program in PHP will be very useful if you want to create very advanced and complex websites or web applications based on WordPress.
Of course, you can write websites in pure PHP, but the number of solutions that already exist on the WordPress market is unimaginable.
Therefore, we are of the opinion that learning PHP programming based on the WordPress CMS engine is a very interesting proposition for people who want to start learning software development at all.
Learning PHP programming in the WordPress environment has many advantages, such as a prepared IDE, editor and database access. However, it has several elements that can be a problem for novice programmers.
For years we have been implementing solutions based on both pure PHP and PHP in WordPress and we are aware of the advantages and disadvantages of such a solution.
For this reason, we decided to launch a special platform for learning PHP programming with a focus on programming in the WordPress engine.
We will be giving online lessons and courses for beginners who would like to expand their range of CMS WordPress skills.
We will learn to create our own modules and modify the existing templates so that we can adjust the appearance of the website or its functionality to the individual needs of the client.
The lessons we will prepare will be divided into thematic blocks related to the general structure of the website based on wordpress as well as lessons focused on specific plugins, for example WooCommerce.
WooCommerce is an excellent engine for a store – but very often the specificity of selling products in a given industry requires an individual approach – tailored to unusual needs.
To prepare unique and tailored solutions in WordPress – you need to know PHP – without it you will not be able to go beyond the functionalities offered by standard or additional – paid WooCommerce plugins.
For those interested, we recommend our first course:
