Getting set up

Everyone working on a WordPress plugin project requires one thing — a working WordPress install to test against. That’s why I went ahead and set up this blog independent of my own site. My blog is now hosted on which doesn’t really allow random plugins, and while I’ve meant to migrate it to my own WordPress host that just hasn’t been the priority.

However the team has a great WordPress hosting solution we sell as Rapidpress. I could have created a standard Linux hosting package at or Enom and installed WordPress on my own, but that didn’t seem necessary. Rapidpress was a quick, easy, turnkey solution.

So far I haven’t done much but stand up this blog, activate the WordPress Jetpack plugin so I can manage this blog along with my others, and install the Sorbet theme.

Next steps are to start refreshing my PHP basics and choosing up an editor/development environment for WordPress plugin coding.
