Yesterday I was helping someone out with a “How do I…?” WordPress development query.
Despite not knowing the answer to the question immediately, I was able to use some tricks to find the answer.
And I thought the process by which I found the answer may be of interest to others.
So here’s a little 12 minute video of:
- Using the WordPress GitHub mirror
- Using code search in GitHub
- Using the “grep” command line tool to search code quickly and easily
- Ultimately, finding filters in WordPress core in order to modify core behaviour
I hope you learn something useful!
