Removing personal stereotype about Wordpress

  • Wordpress is too complicated and messy, naah I wont use it. Better I will go with custom Codeigniter etc etc.

  • Wordpress is so heavy for such simple requirement, no lets not increase out tech debt.

  • Wordpress theming modification is time consuming, lets not get lost there.

  • Wordpress Grid and CSS is complicated to understand.

  • Wordpress dont have good docs, lets use something better.

ufff I dont know why I have the above stereotypes but I have never give wordpress a good chance and time to learn, thats my mistake I accepted last night.

In this post I will try to cover what I learn and will try to create a plugin as a personal challenge to overcome above stereotype.

[UPDATES]

Infect I went further and used Wordpress's woocommerce plugin and I was really surprised to see the dedicated community. It was very easy to create store, also to integrate it with payment gateway as well as integrate with shipping providers. I am really gaining a good exposure and the best part is I have not at all touched code (except few lines of CSS, that too from admin dashboard).
