Plugin is very important role in WordPress and it helps to extend the WordPress functionality and features. Let’s make a simple plugin in WordPress.

For Making a plugin in WordPress you have to do following things:

Step 1: Create a directory in your plugin folder.
Step 2: Then create a PHP file in this folder and start working on that file using below code:

1. Plugin Name: Data Fetch
2. Plugin URI: https://www.namasteui.com
3. Description: WordPress collection data from database using a shortcode
4. Version: 1.0
5. Author: Namaste UI
5. Author URI: www.namasteui.com

Above lines are basic lines which we use in making any plugin.

if ( !defined( 'WP_FD_ABSPATH' ) )
define( 'WP_FD_ABSPATH', plugin_dir_path( __FILE__ ) );

This define the path of plugin directory.

And thus your plugin is ready to use.
