What is CRUD?

In the context of WordPress, CRUD (which is a universal term) stands for Create, Read, Update, and Delete. These are the basic operations you can perform on data within the system:

  1. Create: Adding new content, such as a new post, page, event, or user.
  2. Read: Viewing or retrieving existing content, like reading a blog post or viewing a list of users.
  3. Update: Making changes to existing content, such as editing a post, changing a permalink, or updating user details.
  4. Delete: Removing content, like deleting a post or user.

These actions are essential for managing the data in your WordPress site, allowing you to handle everything from all types of content to user accounts and everything in between.
