The top of all bootstrap files for WordPress plugins begin with an important comment block. Below is a sample of a multiline comment block which describes the plugin and provides name, URI, Author, Author URI, and Version.
Create a file named fabulous.php and place it in the wp-content/plugins directory of WordPress.
* Plugin Name: Fabulous
* Plugin URI: www.tuxreports.com
* Description: A test Plugin
* Author: LPH
* Author URI: www.tuxreports.com
* Version: 1.0.0
It turns out the function get_plugin_data can be used to grab the information in the comments of a bootstrap file if logged into the administration area of WordPress. For example, below is a sample of code to pull the array of information within the $data variable.
