Let’s talk through what we are building together. Start with the Scope of Work, i.e. the big green box on the lab’s landing page. You’ll build the following:
- A custom post type called ‘faq’
- A custom taxonomy for it to give us the grouping topics
- Add the page attributes to the custom post type to give us the ordering feature
- An archive page and custom loader
- We’ll use the SQL and
$wpdbfrom the Advanced SQL lab. Then we’ll modify it for our needs.
- A shortcode with two different processes
We’ll build it in that order, step-by-step.
You are building a module. In this episode, we talk about why you want to build it using this design pattern.
Why are we using the SQL lab’s code? $$. It’s less expensive and more productive for us to use the module we already built. That module was built to be reused. Let’s do that in this lab.
Hands off the keyboard. Web development starts by thinking first, then planning it out, and then coding it.
