How can one stay current with all of the cool fresh-pressed plugins available from WordPress? To be in the loop, of the newly knitted options for WordPress, one can subscribe to WPBeginner.com, which offers useful articles, with great tips for the novice Web Designer.
Can I actually ask this question correctly? WordPress is an association or online medium for Web Developers to contribute plugins and other software, which are crucial components for building a website. Novice Web Designers would no to be able create website without WordPress and its contributors. There are other free resources such as Joomla and Drupal (mainly for CMS: Content / Customer Management System). But these competitors don’t measure-up for ease of use or usability. Weebly and Wix are comparable seemingly free platforms for building a website, which is optimal for small business owners and those on a tight budget. Weebly offers a drap and drop structure, which is striving toward but not matching Godaddy’s Website Builder. Wix has great professionally looking templates designed using HTML 5, which are complimentary. They also “offer a number of premium plans for a small fee, which enables our users to get more storage and bandwidth, remove the Wix ads, and the connect their Wix site to their own domain name.”
Among the most useful plugin for customer engagement are the Live Chat Pop-up Button offered by WP-Live Chat , Pop-Up Contact Button from VCita and Online Voicemail from SpeakPipe. Casengo seems to offer an initially free trial period for their state-of-the-art technology for onsite Live Chat, with instant bell sounding notifications. This platform is top-notch and seems to be accompanied by regular follow up e-mail from the customer support department. I have noted the following cutting-edge plugins because I am currently utilizing them and find them to be very effective in connecting with potential clients.
Being accessible to prospective customers is the most important function of a company. The Google Translator WordPress Plugin is very useful in ensuring your website can be reviewed in nearly every language. There are other options for website translators that I have found to be less easy to manage. Options that were initially offered such as country flags were not displayed as they should have been.
Whatever plugins you choose to use to increase the functionality of your website, be sure to test out many comparable options. With plugins there are some that seem user-friendly, but are actually quite complex and others that claim to be complimentary / free, which really have a paid membership requirement, possibly after an initial trial period.
Please let me know which plug-ins you consider worthy of special mention.
