yh, i downloaded all the tutsplus videos..

the thing is with Jeffrey Way’s WP video is it does not show how to make plugins you would see sold here (where it has its own menu system, pages, settings)

PS, on holiday.

I’ve learned WP plugin development using the following resources:
  • Nettuts+
  • WordPress Codex
  • Looking at the source code of other plugins

Read “Administration Menus” if you would like to create your own plugin menu.
