I've been experimenting with WordPress a little bit lately while setting up a blog on my personal web server. The installation was completely smooth, but I was interested in some of the WP internals and also wanted to get a better understanding of what it takes to develop WordPress extensions. So, I set up a NetBeans PHP project for my experiments.
I thought other folks might be interested in this, or perhaps, would like to see how to set up a project in NetBeans for their existing PHP applications in general. Therefore, I wrote this brief tutorial and published it in NetBeans wiki. In the future, I'd like to write another tutorial about developing a real WordPress plugin.
