Extending WordPress – the actual power

I am wondering how many people have really used the actually power and extensibility of the great WordPress. The more time I spend with it reading the code I come to know WordPress can be extended into a powerful cms. Trust me WordPress is not just blogging software and it’s more than that.

I know WordPress can be extended to any complex cms without changing a single line in the WordPress core. The more I dig the WordPress I feel really stupid for writing such poor code in Organizer plug-in. There are two ways by which you can extend your WordPress namely plug-in and themes.

I have used so many so many open source cms. But I just love to write a plug-in for WordPress for its simplicity and power. Long back I wrote in my blog that I want to bring smarty in WordPress. One good thing with smarty is when you code a big project it is very easy to handle the templates for you.

If you like to see the implentation please download this file. I have just made it work here please change according to your neeeds.
