Hire Freelance WordPress Plugin Developer

WordPress is a blogging platform that allows users to create, customize and maintain their blog posts for both personal and professional reasons. The basic version of WordPress has been developed with the aim of being flexible and easy to use and does not offer a lot of high-end features for customizing your blog to a large extent. Hence, if you want to give a personalized look and feel to your WordPress blog, you need to install WordPress plugins so that you can tailor your blog site as per your specific requirements. Although a number of default plugins are available in online plugin repositories, if you want a feature that is not available among the defaults, you can hire WordPress plugin developer for developing your required WordPress plugin. Freelance WordPress plugin developers can help you with plugins that can impart amazing customized functions and features to your blog site.

What WordPress Plugin Developers Do?

WordPress plugin developers write plugins for your WordPress site that enable you to enhance and modify your existing one. These plugins are programs written in the PHP scripting language that instruct your WordPress site to perform one or more functions. WordPress has a very user-friendly plugin Application Program Interface (API) through which a plugin can easily be integrated with a preexisting WordPress site. A freelance WordPress plugin developer writes plugins for a particular feature or a function and integrates it into your site without any changes to the core code. In future if you want to eliminate this feature from your site, you only need to remove the plugin, making the entire process extremely hassle-free.

You can hire a WordPress plugin developer from any of the top freelance marketplaces; however, you should ensure that your freelancer has:

  • Experience with the basic code and development of a WordPress site and a WordPress plugin.
  • Familiarity with the PHP scripting language and can write effective, functional and user-friendly programs for developing WordPress plugins.
  • An extensive portfolio of WordPress plugins developed for performing various creative functions on a WordPress blog site.

Qualifications of a WordPress Plugin Developer

It is ideal for your freelancer to have the following skills:

  • A strong educational background in frontend and backend development, programming using PHP, HTML, Java and WordPress development
  • Familiarity with plugin activation and deactivation, table creation, short code creation, working with Ajax, writing SQL queries, and ensuring plugin security
