For creating a plug-in, name should be chosen uniquely. A name should demonstrate the working domain of plug-in in order to make it easily findable each and every time. One can also search on various search engines in order to find out, whether the name is unique or not. Name can be of single as well as multiple words, but the main part is to choose it in a manner that it certainly reciprocates the manner of its work relation. The further step involves the creation of PHP file for the same. The word ‘.php’ acts as extension name on behalf of any plug-in file. For example if the file is related to downloading songs, than the plug-in file name for the same should be ‘downloadsongs.php’.
