Code Organisation – All 3rd party codes, library must be inside lib folder. No unwanted files e.g. IDE files, temporary files should be committed on git-repo. (Hint: Write a nice .gitignore)

Complex PSD to WordPress Theme Assignment (Attached with this post attachment section)
-You need to create a homepage only. Don’t bother about inner-pages styling.
-You must use WordPress “Theme Options Page” for different settings. Do not hard code a lot of stuff.
-Please use [url removed, login to view] starter theme for this task.
2: Create WordPress Plugin
This plugin will test if you are familiar with WordPress shortcodes.
Create an admin-side settings page.
Provide an interface to add/remove images from plugin settings page.
User must be able to change order of uploaded image.
(Hint: Use [url removed, login to view] )
Create provision for a shortcode like [myslideshow]
When you add shortcode [myslideshow] to any page, it will be replaced by a slideshow of images uploaded from admin-side.
You can use any jQuery slideshow library/plugin.
This plugin will test if you are familiar with WordPress metabox([url removed, login to view]) functionality.
Goal is to create a plugin so that we can display more than one author-name on a post.
Add a new metabox, labeled “contributors” to WordPress post-editor page.
This metabox will display list of authors (wordpress users) with a checkbox for each author.
User (author/editor/admin) may tick one or more authors name from the list.
When post saves, states of checkboxes for author-list in “contributors” box must be saved as well.
Use a post-content filter.
At the end of post, display a box called “Contributors”.
It will have list of authors checked for that post.
Show contributor names with their Gravatars.
Contributor-names must be clickable and will link to their respective “author” page.
