3 Code and Query Generators for WordPress

July 2nd in Wordpress Tips, WP Solutions by .

Want to become a WordPress ninja? Knowing how to install plugins or make small changes to your theme does not cut it. You should take time to become familiar with CSS, PHP, MySQL, and other technologies that are required to run a WordPress site smoothly. Knowing how to handle SQL queries, post types, shortcodes, and other aspects of WordPress is important too. You don’t have to do all the coding on your own though. Once you know your stuff, you can use these WordPress code generators to get your projects done faster:

Seems like the WP_Query generator on wpQueryGenerator.com has only 9 parameters and the WP_Query generator on GenerateWP.com has 36 parameters. Both are usefull, but the first is for new developers and the second is for advanced developers.

Yes. Sorry. We should have done a better job explaining what each of these tools do.
