Course: Learn WordPress Development

WPShout has helped thousands of people learn WordPress development since 2009. We’ve published hundreds of tutorials, created a premium WordPress development course, and love teaching what we learn in our day jobs as WordPress developers to would-be WordPress developers like you, who are just getting started, need a bit of extra guidance, or need a refresher.


Course: Working with the Command Line and WP-CLI

When we think about “using a computer,” we usually think in terms of graphical user interfaces, or GUIs: interfaces (like Microsoft Word, the Mac OS, or the WordPress admin interface) that are specially and attractively designed, that have programs and windows and tabs that visibly open and close, and that let you click things and drag things and drop things and hover things.



Course: A Complete Introduction to the WordPress Hooks System

wordpress hook | wordpress action and filter

This course covers one of WordPress’s most crucial and widely used systems: Hooks, including both actions and filters. We introduce Hooks as an event-driven system, present the key concepts and terminology you need to understand this system, and dig deep into how to use hooks in your own code—including hooking in your own functions, removing previously hooked functions, and creating your own action and filter hooks for others to use.



Using Custom Taxonomies and Custom Fields in WordPress Development

This course covers the key points of two of WordPress’s most powerful APIs for defining custom post data: custom fields (also called post meta), and custom taxonomies. The course introduces each tool, and then—since some problems can be addressed by either tool—covers practical guidelines for when to use custom fields and when to use custom taxonomies.
