Developer Guide

Welcome to the MasterPress developer documentation. To gain the best level of understanding of the API, read through the Introduction and Key Concepts section first, since it sets up a foundation for all other material in this guide.

Introduction and Key Concepts

The MasterPress API uses advanced object-oriented and dynamic language techniques to provide a PHP front-end to your WordPress content with high levels of memorability, consistency and brevity. This section outlines the key techniques used throughout the API, along with concrete examples outlining how they are used by other parts of the API, and how to make use of them yourself.

Code Recipes

This highly practical section provides many example solutions to common development tasks you’ll encounter when using WordPress and MasterPress as a CMS for your web sites and apps. You’ll learn how to integrate the API with existing theme code, and also discover how MasterPress makes working with your content, images, and files a lot easier than before.

Latest From the Blog

MasterPress 1.4.1 is now available

27th May 2024

This update addresses backwards compatibility issues that were introduced in the previous update. There were some edge cases where PHP 7 had issues and it didn’t work at all on PHP 5.6. We have now changed it so that the PHP 8 compatibility changes will now only affect PHP 8 and will be more thorough… 

Plugin Requirements

MasterPress requires a minimum of WordPress version 4.9, MySQL 5.6, and PHP version 5.6.20.

We also recommend that PHP is configured to use a memory limit of 64MB per request (128MB may be required for sites with higher complexity).

This plug-in is not compatible with the hosted service.
