This plugin is simple and straightforward. What the WordPress Plugin Maker plugin does is create an empty plugin template on your plugin directory which can then be edited and activated online via the WordPress admin plugin editor. This can come in handy when you want to create a quick plugin for a specific task and you’re not at home or on the road and you’re not using your own computer.

To use this plugin, all you need to do is upload the files into your wp-content/plugins directory and activate from the Plugins admin panel.

My Take:
I think the WordPress Plugin Maker is a cool and handy tool for any WordPress developer or programmer. Even though I have a lot of ideas for new plugins or modifications to some existing plugins, I’m not proficient in coding PHP so this plugin is not for me. If you happen to use or have tried this plugin please share your thoughts and experience regarding the WordPress Plugin Maker. I’m sure other users including me would like to learn more about this plugin.

  1. Thanks for the plugin.

    But when I click on Plugins > Plugin Maker, enter all the information, and click on “Submit Query”, I see a page saying “Are you sure you want to do this?”. But there are no options to say yes or no. I’m using FF 3.5.3 on Windows XP SP3. Web server is localhost IIS 5.1 running PHP 5.2.9.

    Can you help?


    1. To fix the issue with the “Are you sure you want to do this” message


      pluginmaker_nonce_field(‘$pluginmaker_nonce’, $pluginmaker_nonce);


      wp_nonce_field(‘$pluginmaker_nonce’, $pluginmaker_nonce);

      inside of wp-content/plugins/pluginmaker/pluginmaker.php
