I want to make a plugin and I need some help.
I am making an homepage for a school for blind kids. Even if it sounds funny (but they are using the internet a lot!) there is also another people interested.
I want to make a plugin about the people working at the school.
I have downloaded the Shiba Example Plugin from http://www.shibashake.com, and this is where I came so far.
I need examples, books ideas, help to make the following:
I would like to make a standalone table for the employees (if you think it is a good idea). The table should be installed at the samme time than the plugin. Of course if the table exist it should not be rewrited.
When I click on the plugin in the employee plugin, I should see the employees who are registred.
Then I would like to have a page under the plugin where I should have the possibility to add/modify/delete employees (firstname, lastname, phone number, picture ...)
I would like to have the possiblity to have (maybe some new) tables for jobtype and area (where they are working physically).
It could be great to have the wordpress possibility to publish it.
I can write MySQL requests, some php, but I don't know really wordpress (used joomla before) so I am interested in everything relevant.
I found tons of documets on the internet, but not really something I can use because the explanations are wide.
Thank you for your time reading this.
