Best Practices For WordPress Development

Last month, I covered Five Cardinal Sins of WordPress Development. Obviously, there are more (and the comments provided a great example of additional thoughts), but there are also a number of practices that we should all be striving for, as well.

On Envato, I cover a number of best practices for WordPress development.

In the article, I hit on the following points:

  1. Following programming guidelines
  2. Document your code
  3. Use the WordPress unit test
  4. Debug, Log, Review, Repeat
  5. Avoid deprecated functions
Just as with the previous article, there are some good comments that follow the article, too.
