I wanna learn how to develop plugins!!

Glad to know, that you would like to learn! You can actually go to the following site: [GuidesForge]
As the title link suggests, you will be walked-through the steps in order to create a Plugin for WordPress 2.7.
For this particular guide I have detailed out a plugin that I wrote called “Content-Icons”. I go through each step and show exactly
how one should go about developing plugins for WordPress 2.7.

Future Work

  1. Please direct all your ‘feature requests’ at the Plugin Home Page
  2. In the future version, I am planning on adding Internationalization support
    So, if someone can help with translations, that would be great!
  3. Also, I am planning on adding: Custom Background/Font color etc. (basically Custom CSS Options)
  4. Other features… Stay Tuned! :p
