Need a new plugin guide

I am trying hard on making a plugin. But the plugin guide is too old. I downloaded VS 2023. The framework is 7.0. Where can I find the latest version?

There is no latest version. You have to create the plugin, generate the DLL, manually change the framework in the proj folder.

I could be a bit outdated here, but that is what I have been doing.

There is an example of all this pulled together here if it helps you get started quicker:


As barr.jarryd says, you will need to change the framework version as required.

To get started creating a new plugin, follow the steps below.

  1. Navigate to the WordPress installation’s wp-content directory.
  2. Open the plugins directory.
  3. Create a new directory and name it after the plugin (e.g. plugin-name).
  4. Open the new plugin’s directory.
  5. Create a new PHP file (it’s also good to name this file after your plugin, e.g. plugin-name.php).

Thank you for your reply. I guess this is a different kind of plugin.
