WordPress it has become one of the main platforms for managing web pages, and with it, various plugins that facilitate our work in this tool.
These are eight plugins what will they do with you more comfortable and simple WordPress experience:
- My Private Site- Make a website private and it will only be visible to registered users. If an unregistered user tries to view a page or make an entry, they will be presented with the WordPress login screen.
- Multiple Themes: allows you to assign different themes to the various parts of your website, but it does not affect the administrators panel.
- Shortcodes anywhere or everywhere: allows you to use WordPress shortcuts almost anywhere on your website (page titles, post titles, website title and its description, among others).
- Reveal network activated plugins: For websites with multiple administrators, it shows all plugins which are being used and where. Usually WordPress hides some of its plugins and this tool all the existing ones in the administrators panel, and that sometimes go unnoticed.
- Remember me: It allows the administrator to place the “remember me” box when entering the website and users will only enter their name and password once every two weeks. Without this box, users will have to enter their name and password each time they visit the page.
- Perpetual Calendar: handles dates from 6500 years in the past to 8000 years in the future, and allows users to know the day of the week on whatever date they enter.
- Display Kitchen Sink: standard users can only see the first line of WordPress icons. This plugin forces the second line of icons to always be displayed, both in the administrators panel and in the post pages.
- Current Year and Copyright Shortcodes- Quick and easy shortcuts to display current year and copyright symbols.
These eight plugins downloaded about 215.000 times around the world. To make them last over time, you can go to the adoption of them: This can be done when the owner of a Plugin you want to continue with another project or have some personal circumstance that does not allow you to continue supporting it.
As WordPress is incredibly popular, it is constantly a target for hackers and therefore has many updates to keep it protected. The same goes for plugins, which have to be updated regularly. When a Plugin stops receiving support from its creator and has become popular, there is a high probability that it will become a target for hackers. Thus It is recommended that only those with recent updates be purchased.
This is how the initiative of the tag "adopt me": creators who wanted to continue with other projects, but did not want to leave their plugins Unattended can use this tag on WordPress.org. In this way, another developer is welcome to view, evaluate and possibly take the project to continue with it.
This can be a very satisfying experience for programmers, as it will allow them to meet developers around the world, see the work they do and the challenges they face.. The idea is to keep these plugins assets and deal with any security threats.
