WordPress Plugins to Enhance Your Blogby Vishal Shah Web Developer
Has not been a month since we started this year 2013, therefore, we have enough time to develop all those purposes and projects that traditionally we set at the beginning of the new year.
Managing a blog is that requires some commitment on our part and of course, wanted to tell stories and share them over the network in fact, I think that's the part that has more weight in this process because really, it does not take an expert developer to maintain our own blog. Platforms like Blogger, Tumblr and WordPress offer us the opportunity to keep our blog and in the case of WordPress have the option to keep the service we offer to deploy an instance Automatic or WordPress itself in the service of hosting we deem appropriate.
Personally, I much prefer the latter option, i.e. the installation of a service WordPress hosting staff because it is a good way to use the flexibility of this CMS, customizing and adapting their capabilities to our needs. Installing WordPress is very simple so is its management and also the provision of additional functions is also simple thanks to the huge gallery of plugins and widgets that can be found in there.
Social Stickers is a plugins that allows easy generate a widget with buttons to our social profiles i.e. the typical panel icons with the logo of Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, SlideShare, etc., with which link to our coordinates on the network and show our work or our work.
While such extensions are enough, Stickers Social design is one of its strengths besides customization options (command buttons, several default layouts, icon size, customizing the URLs of services, etc.) a very good combination that looks pretty good on the main page of our blog.
Better WP Security
Better WP Security is one of the best safety plugins we can find for WordPress as it offers a number of features that cover a number of aspects and checkpoints. With this plugins we can monitor changes in the archives of our blog, implement secure configurations, monitor permits our key files (wp-config.php and-htaccess), backing up the blog, check the logs , force use area management / administration with SSL, etc..
Although, at first glance, the configuration of this plug-in can be a little scary for the amount of options available, we have at our disposal a little wizard that will guide us a little in what we must do to ensure the safety of our blog (and avoid us so odd scare).
WordPress SEO is one of the most complete on SEO extensions that can be found in the extensive WordPress plugins gallery. This plug-in offers a comprehensive view of all we have to do to make our blog is indexed well in Google and optimize search engine rankings. To say that we are in the higher search results the more visitors we get really that is not anything new but nevertheless, many users are not aware of this importance.
With this comprehensive approach WordPress SEO offers sitemaps from our blog, control over the descriptions of our items (we generate the snippet of our paper and model and how we appear in the results search paths), improving our RSS, analyzing the text of our tickets and get recommendations to improve SEO and a long list of features that are worth discovering because, before long, we begin to see the fruits materialized in our blog.
Contact Form 7
Contact Form 7 is one of those supplements that more or less everyone has in mind when deploying your blog. This plug-in offers the functionality to develop contact forms for WordPress to establish a communication channel between our visitors and ourselves.
Clearly there are many options for this function however, Contact Form 7 is interesting because in addition to generating a contact page we used to manage more than one form at a time (imagine that in addition to another form to maintain contact a contest) and even comfortably insert a contact form in a post by copying and pasting the code generated by the plug-in.
Ajax Event Calendar
Ajax Event Calendar is a very interesting if we insert in our blog a widget with a calendar of events and important dates.
With this plug-in can manage a widget which display a number of events and manage them easily from the WordPress admin using a schedule that works with drag & drop where we can add multiple event categories (and associated a color), define the data that we will request (mandatory, optional, etc.) and provide some details as chips attachments are events or maps on Google Maps with the location of the event.
