eduTrac Developer Codex

We are excited to announce our new eduTrac developer codex website. The codex references class methods, functions, hooks and filters which are used in eduTrac.

Furthermore, if you are using the ERP edition of eduTrac, then you should not even think of installing it on a shared hosting environment.
