Useful predefined PHP functions

get_defined_vars — Returns an array of all defined variables

print_r(get_defined_functions());

print_r(get_declared_classes());

get_declared_classes – Returns list all declared classes

print_r(memory_get_usage());

Create WordPress Plugin

To create a plugin, all you need to do is create a folder and then create a single file. First go to the wp-content/plugins folder, and create a new folder named myPlugin. Inside this new folder, create a file named myPlugin.php. Open the file in a text editor, and paste the following information in it:

< ?php
   /*
   Plugin Name: myPlugin Creator
   Plugin URI: http://www.nikolaynikolov.net
   Description: My fist plugin
   Version: 1.2
   Author: Nikolay Nikolov
   Author URI: http://www.nikolaynikolov.net
   License: GPL2
   */
