Though many of the concepts in this course are still relevant, overall this course does not reflect our current course standards.
Transcript from the "Course Agenda" Lesson
[00:00:19] You have to actually load it through some PHP code. So, we're gonna walk through the different ways that you could do that, some of the tricks around it, some of the different things that you may or may not know about with that. And then, of course, we'll shift from there to talk about plugins.
[00:01:03] And I pick things that or you mostly likely to have to copy paste and change next time, right? So if you have one project and then you're, I need to that again you're gonna have to copy this block of code. You are gonna have to put it here change this three things and then you can write the rest of it.
[00:01:31] And that's awesome, and you could take these and play around with them. And I hope that if you have projects that explore this more, that you'll be able to use those as kind of jumping off points. Then we gotta talk briefly about AJAX. We're shifting away from relying so heavy on AJAX in WordPress and we're moving more to, I guess you could still say it's AJAX.
[00:02:12] And then we'll shift in the afternoon into getting into the WordPress API driven stuff and that's kind of a more modern take on it. So from there, excuse me, we'll look at all of the different end points and what comes up out of the box what you may expect to see customized.
[00:02:28] And then we'll go back to our themes and plugins and we'll say okay if we're in a theme or a plugin how can we pull an API and use it just piecemeal or completely. And then if we're decoupled from WordPress so if we're launching on a completely different server somewhere else nowhere connected to WordPress, how do we pull in posts?
[00:03:04] So we're not rebuilding everything. You're not gonna be able to edit categories around featured images and things like that but from this foundation it should be a pretty good jumping off point, especially if you have some comfort with API's.
