[Resolved] Using wordpress database info. instead of wpdb

  • hello. just trying my luck if it is allowed to use database info such as database name, user, and pass.. i know it is not recommended. but i want to know if it is, for me to develop my wordpress custom plugin easily using my way on connecting database.

    can i use the db info just like this. $config[‘dbname’], $config[‘dbuser’], $config[‘dbpass’]..

    thanks

  • You can do whatever you want really, even if it isn’t recommended 🙂

    But if you plan to release it to the public you may want to consider following the WordPress coding standards.

    did you know how to get wordpress database info from wp-config.php?

    nevermind. i already solve the problem trying to echo those define variable on wp-config.php thanks anyways.

    $dbname = DB_NAME;
    $dbuser = DB_USER;
    $dbpass = DB_PASS;

    no need to make a class to extends wpdb.
