Coding a Plugin


I just wanted to start coding Plugins for Vanilla. The Plugin I want to code should be something like a resource Manager. But I have actually some questions. I made an example Plugin and everything worked,but I need to know how to do some things.

-How to add a link to Vanilla I mean something like( ) without creating the direction
-How can I get something nested I.e. If I go to pluginName how can I ensure that the content is displayed in the board and not as a new page
-How can I store and load stuff,because I'd need to load and save texts for the resources

I'm kinda new to Web Stuff at all and would like to get some help :P.

    I recommend you start with reading this , then input your question in the search bar. There is much to learn.

    I think the best answer to your question is to study other plugins that do similar things to the kind of things that you ask, and to read the documentation and wiki.

    I may not provide the completed solution you might desire, but I do try to provide honest suggestions to help you solve your issue.

    I would start of by reading the wiki, or consulting other "Plugins" and reviewing how they are written, and then trying to do the same.

    This Wiki is amazing: Its one well written and if you get bored you can read the brew forums.
