I've got a rough sketch of the wpdb class at
http://codex.wordpress.org/User:MDAWaffe/Functions . I agree now that
the content is better served from the [[WordPress Function Reference]]
Speaking of, I've made a draft of such a page:
http://codex.wordpress.org/WordPress_Function_Reference . The
inspiration, as you can see, comes from [[Template Tags]]. I had
envisioned a similar implementation: links in each section to pages
describing individual functions or groups of similar functions. I am
open to other implementations.
The sections delineated there were completely off the cuff. Please
organize things differently if you see a better alternative. In
particular, what do people think about each class (or natural group of
classes) getting its own box on the page? Also, I don't really know
what "basic functions" could be; functions from functions.php will
probably go into several categories. Again, edit at will. Owen, you
seem to have a good idea how things should be organized. Do you mind
poking the page or listing a sectional hierarchy here?
This brings up the subpage issue. It seems the best way to implement
to me, but I'm open. I suppose, then, each of the functions I describe
for the wpdb class should have its own page, with an umbrella page
describing database interface in general, the class variables, and the
class as a whole.
I don't want to do anything drastic, though, until I hear possibly
