Writing plugins for Wordpress may seem like a daunting task if you're new to Wordpress. But all it takes is a good starting point to get the ball rolling. Today I'll show you how to get started with your first simple Wordpress plugin. For this example, we will be making a plugin that automatically adds an image to all new posts.

First, you will need to make the appropriate directories and files. In your /wp-content/plugins/ directory, make a new folder with your desired plugin name, and a .php file with the same name.
