I'm a Junior WordPress/PHP developer, I like to help people and discuss code and WordPress is also my hobby.
Often killing my time with chess.
Code License ------------ All original source snippets I post on Stackoverflow.com, and other sites in the StackExchange network, are dedicated to the [public domain]. If this is not legally possible in your area than the [MIT License] applies. (without forced attribution, almost the same as public domain)
However, if you do find value in my answers, I would very much appreciate attribution and acknowledgement where possible.
Ask *how*, not *what* ----------------- You want to use this *specific plugin* so that you could add some functionality to your WordPress website, *you know what you want to accomplish*, you only need to formulate your question to how to develop this yourself. (in your own WP theme or plugin)
So just ask how you should do what you want to do, and leave the plugin recommendations - if any - to the answerers.
- Maybe someone recommends a great plugin, library or framework and includes an example of how to use it.
- Maybe someone points out that there's a standard library routine to do what you want.
- Maybe someone writes a short bit of code that does it from scratch.
- Maybe it's impossible or unfeasible and someone tells you that.
By asking how to do something instead of what to use or to install you're not only learning something from it (and therefore becoming a better Web/WordPress developer) but you've also invited answers that will be more useful to you, now, and others, in the future.
The rules/guidelines --------------------
Asking to recommend a product (plugin, theme, book, hosting provider), tool, library or off-site resource is out of the scope of this website, as it attracts opinionated answers and spam. Instead, describe the problem and what has been done so far to solve it.
