WordPress Customization

Tonight I attended my first WordPress Meetup which was pretty cool.  I didn’t learn a lot but came away with a few interesting tidbits which I didn’t know before:

  • Even if a wordpress site has a different permalink scheme, any post (or page) or category can be accessed using the ID.  p=id for pages and posts, cat=id for categories.  More info.
  • There are various loading diagrams for WordPress which would help a person learn and/or troubleshoot a WordPress problem.

Getting me to think about this stuff motivates me to learn more so I can write my own plugins.  To begin this I would need to become familiar with many of the functions WordPress uses.

Yet another thing to keep me busy in life…
