Easily Learn WordPress Functions Using Inbuilt Documentation Lookup

WordPress comes with many easy-to-use functions which are called into the themes where ever needed. How do you know the purpose of a function?

You can Google it and find the details or, you can also use the WordPress Theme Editor.

Documentation Lookup in Theme Editor

Navigate to Appearance > Editor on your WordPress Dashboard. Theme editor loads the style sheet of the currently active theme.

From the Right sidebar that lists all the files of the theme, choose the file that contains the function you want to learn more about.

Divi WordPress Theme - My Review

Divi WordPress Theme
Divi is a WordPress theme that web designers do not want you to know. It comes with a drag-and-drop theme builder. You can build beautiful looking unique websites without touching a line of code. Just choose from one of the many pre-made layouts, or pick elements and arrange them any way you like.

Divi is every WordPress developer's wet dream. Surprise your clients with neat responsive websites and have fun building them.

Divi comes from Elegant Themes. If you enjoy building websites, you *need* an Elegant Themes membership. 87 beautiful themes and 5 plugins for the cost of less than a candy-bar each!

Note: I am an avid user of Divi myself and this is a honest review. I wouldn't recommend something that I do not personally find amazing.

    You are posting more frequently these day but the depth in the articles you wrote previously (when an article used to hit my reader once in 3-4 days) is not to be seen these days.
    I can understand the situation though.
    I’m leaving tomorrow, yay..
