Our WordPress development process


  1. Thanks for the write-up!

    Hi there! I am a relatively new developer (5 months). I wanted to create a workflow similar to this but ran into a snag. When I install with Desktop Server, It automatically creates a folder for my wp-install. For example…I create a repo called TEST

    When I create my WP site in Desktop Server (lets call it example.dev) and Select my root as TEST, it then creates something that looks like this:

    TEST/example.dev/(my wp install)

    The issue with this is, when deploying with Beanstalk, it deploys the entire example.dev folder because it is inside of my TEST repo. Is there a way to fix this? Can I ignore the example.dev folder itself but somehow include wp-content??

    Thank you so much for your help 😉

    1. @Christopher – I\’m not familiar with Desktop Server – is there a way to set example.dev as root rather than TEST?

      Here\’s the gitignore file I use, which ignores everything but the theme and mu-plugins: gitignore.md
