While the core of WordPress is a leading content management system on its own, it cannot manage all the requirements of the customers. Sometimes it happens that even if we have a massive cannon, the help of a sniper is necessary. This is when plugin development comes into the picture.
From simplest to infinity
Plugins in WordPress are codes that extend the functionalities of the core system. What is important to note here that each of these plugins should be setup in a way that it can be used by anyone, preferably for any of the themes developed. But what are these plugins in real life, what are the solutions they offer? Well, this depends solely on the developer and or course, our customers. Just to give a few examples of our own, in-house developed plugins, Lana Breadcrumbs indicates the current page’s location within a navigation hierarchy, while another open-source solution Lana Download Manager – not surprisingly manages local (WordPress uploaded) and remote files. To give a more complex example, one of our premium plugins is an editor solution that is a drag & drop page builder enhancing the core system. One of the most basic rules of plugin development is that the core system should not be modified as a new release of this will overwrite all the core files, ruining the edited version of the client’s WordPress system.
Strict rules ensuring development quality
While our own rules within Lana Codes satisfactorily ensure that our codes and thus plugins are of professional development, we have another assurance to guarantee client satisfaction. Once we have a specification ready determining what the purpose of the WordPress plugin will be, our backend developers create it in php. As we develop in accordance with WordPress standards, the above step is followed by uploading the open-source solution to wp.org where the review team – those developers who are also responsible for the core – checks the code and gives a feedback on it. This either means that we do some minor adjustments or they accept the plugin and add it to the WP library. As a really strict set of rules determines how a plugins should be set up and what it should consist of, it is our own interest to give out a professional work to the public. While we fully understand that our customer’s original ideas need unique solutions, it might be that you will find a plugin that suits your needs too. Our philosophy is that you only pay for the extra options required, thus we encourage you to visit our pages where you will find open-source and premium plugins too. What is more, you will find a demo on our premium plugin page, thus it’s features can be tried out as well.
