Useful WordPress Plugins




Not all plug-ins are what they appear to be and their success also depends on the template of the theme. I'll use this post to update my experiences as I go along.

Here is a really great source for plug-ins:
http://codecanyon.net

Out of the plug-ins, the following have been really great so far:

Responsive WP Slider - Soliloque
https://wordpress.org/plugins/soliloquy-lite/
Soliloque really works well, and integrated well with my WordPress "pitch" theme. Very simple and no tweaking needed.

Simple Sidebars - for making custom Sidebars
http://wordpress.org/plugins/simple-page-sidebars/
Problem with the themes are that most have the sidebar the same for all of the pages. This plug-in helps to create custom sidebars for the pages

The verdict is still out on these ones:

Team Showcase
http://codecanyon.net/item/team-showcase-wordpress-plugin/4936368?WT.ac=search_item&WT.oss_phrase=members&WT.oss_rank=7&WT.z_author=cmoreira
I was looking for a plug-in where I could input my membership data myself. It worked reasonably well, but the CSS was a bit of a disaster. I now realize I should rather look for a membership theme than only the plug-in. So have mothballed (deactivated) this plug-in for now.

Visual Composer
http://codecanyon.net/item/visual-composer-page-builder-for-wordpress/242431?ref=wpbakery&gclid=CNavo9vx9L4CFe3JtAodMF8Arw
This plug-in came heavily recommended by Tyler Moore for building pages. For example it helps to create columns, format text, create contact pages and elements. I've deactivated it for now as it just looks too busy. The verdict is still out on it for me.

This Responsive WP Slider sounds good. I have been searching for a good wp slider to use in my standard plugin list.
