Difference between Helphub & Theme Developer Handbook

The Theme Developer Handbook gives tutorial articles to help a developer make a theme, preferably one that conforms to standards. Helphub is for end user articles like – How do I make a new post? What’s the difference between VPS and shared hosting? – What are backups? etc

In addition, Codex is actively being deprecated via the development and further enhancing of articles on DevHub’s Code Reference, the PluginPlugin A plugin is a piece of software containing a group of functions that can be added to a WordPress website. They can extend functionality or add new features to your WordPress websites. WordPress plugins are written in the PHP programming language and integrate seamlessly with WordPress. These can be free in the Plugin Directory or can be cost-based plugin from a third-party Handbook, the Theme Developer Handbook and Helphub.

Table of Contents

The table of contents is an auto generated list via the proper use of h1,h2,h3,h4 and so on tags in the article content. Should there be some kind of a corruption in how it displays, it is likely the article has an unclosed tag.
