Don't have much programming experience but working my first Wordpress theme from scratch.
I want to create a plugin which adds a menu into the admin panel for a user to update text on the front page of the website. Sounds like the most basic type of plugin but I need help!
Actually this won't actually be a plugin but some code in functions.php since the functionality is theme specific.
I figured the general process would be:
- Edit functions.php and register a new admin menu and panel.
- Add a form into the admin panel which the user will use to enter text.
- Put in some code which will get the form data, upload to database? display the text in a div on the front page.
Does that sound right? I need some help getting started on step 2 & 3.
