Your Daily Fix Of WordPress Functions

How would you like to experience WordPress functions within your inbox on a daily basis? If so, consider signing up to the WordPress Daily Documentation site. Each day features a different function within WordPress sent to your inbox which contains examples, an explanation of what the function does, parameters, and the usual information you would find via other sources. Since signing up, I’ve received emails covering add_shortcode() and get_the_ID().

Daily WordPress functions

There are all sorts of ways to view information related to specific WordPress functions but this method may be especially useful to those who are starting to learn what functions are and which ones WordPress contains. But if you don’t feel like putting your email address on yet another subscription list, there is always the Codex.

  2. This Daily fix seems way beyond my pay scale. . . For example I have absolutely no idea what an “add shortcode” would do, why I would want it, or exactly how I would insert this code in the wordpress page.

    Do you have an idiot’s version of this idea?

    Thanks for your feedback.

    This would be a good idea. But for now, I’m mainly just copy & pasting (and correcting small typos/errors) from the Codex’ function reference. So the target audience of this newsletter is more the WordPress developers and PHP developers aspiring to learn WordPress.

    Best regards,

    Julien

    Nice! You are pushing those typos/errors back upstream into the Codex, right? :grin:

    I tried signing up for your newsletter and I received an error that my email address was not valid. I entered my email address with some caps in it which seemed to be the problem. Just thought you would like to know in case some people try to sign up but are unable to for that reason.

    On a side note the newsletter looks interesting and I hope to learn some new unusual functions.

    Thanks for your comment regarding the false positive validation errors. I’ll look into this ASAP.
