A great place to get started with web coding is CSS. CSS tells the web browser how to display the information on the page, for example the color, size, or font to use. WordPress makes it particularly easy to add your own CSS to your website.
WordPress has two similar translation functions __() and _x(). The function _x() does the same thing as the function __() except the _x() function allows you to define a context for the translation (with the $context parameter). This is helpful when you have a string that could be two different words. For example there are two words that are spelled “tear” each with a separate meaning (and separate pronunciation). By including the context you could use both of these words and have them correctly translated based on their $context value.

By default all of the WordPress database tables will start with the prefix “wp_” (e.g. wp_users, wp_posts, etc.). Because this is the default value, you’ll often hear the tables referred to (and written about) using the “wp_” prefix. Let’s look at how and why this prefix is modified.
A list of the database tables (and the columns in those tables) used by a default WordPress installation. This is the companion blog post to my talk, “Introduction to the WordPress Database”.
In the WordPress database table “wp_term_taxonomy”, each row almost always has the same value for the two columns ‘term_taxonomy_id’ and ‘term_id’. What is the difference between these two columns?
When using Scriptless Social Sharing, you may want to add a site wide hashtag to all of your tweets. This is the code you can use to do that.
In PHP 5.5 the DateTimeImmutable class was introduced. Immutable objects are nice in that they can not be modified, which helps reduce the likelihood I make certain types of errors. This is how to ensure the DateTime you’re working with is immutable.
The editorconfig project allows you to standardize general coding standards on a project.
I was working on a project where I needed to follow the PHP PSR-2 standard. This is the .editorconfig file I used.
