WordPress Plugin Header Generator


When we develop a plugin generate Header for different plugin is very boring work, that’s why I am making this post to show you and make your own wordpress plugin header file easily. If you are a beginner then you can see my plugin development tutorial 

Available header fields:

  • Plugin Name: (required) The name of your plugin, which will be displayed in the Plugins list in the WordPress Admin.
  • Plugin URI: The home page of the plugin, which should be a unique URL, preferably on your own website. This must be unique to your plugin. You cannot use a WordPress.org URL here.
  • Description: A short description of the plugin, as displayed in the Plugins section in the WordPress Admin. Keep this description to fewer than 140 characters.
  • Version: The current version number of the plugin, such as 1.0 or 1.0.3.
