    Thanks for highlighting it Lorelle. The reason I set out to document the global variables was because I got confused while working on some projects. Though global variables are very convenient to work with, change in them can impact the entire application, and hence this effort so that users can knowingly use the them.

    You can’t imagine how many times I’ve wanted to know these variables in order to output custom pieces of information in my WordPress themes.
    Abhijit: Thank you! thank you! thank you!

    i want to declare a variable in any file of wordpress and then i want to use its value on any page of wordpres, let me explain you what i want to do and what i did

    step 1. i declared a variable in functions.php file like this
    global $test;
    $test = ‘2’;

    step 2. Now i wrote this in header.php file
    echo $test ; die;

    But the value in variable is not showing in header, actually i want the value to be shown in footer,

      I recommend you define it as a constant such as:

      define('TEST', 2);

      The code should be inserted into the header as php:

      <?php echo TEST; ?>

  1. […] A definitive WordPress coding reference can be found on Lorelle on WordPress. There’s mention of a list of global WordPress variables by Abhjit Nadgouda, but to be honest I’ve read it, and found it dryer than a salt cracker. Still Abhjit has a nice web layout, worth the visit if only to see the Opera like pop-up web link previews. […]
