Creating WordPress Plugins from Scratch

We’ll walk you through how to create a WordPress plugin from scratch. We’ll start simple, showing how to create a shortcode for displaying store hours on the website, with a handy little admin store location/hours management screen. We’ll then fast forward a little bit with some code snippets, and changing it so that the short code simply displays the store hours that are set on your Google Places profile – allowing a store owner to simply manage their store hours in one place.
