Adding a few things to my WP Toolkit

Watching wordpress.tv videos always fills me up with joy and excitement about my future of my WordPress career.

What has really got me excited is a little secret project I am working on proofing for my peep’s back home to make rolling WP sites really easy – because I know many people whom still find dual-monitors exciting.

Here are a collection of plugins that have just made my day:

  1. MetaSlider (Free & Premium): This was a ‘happy find” as it was supported by the following plugin – but MetaSlider allows you to easily load up sliders using 4 different types (Nivo, Responsive, Flex and Coin sliders). Super easy to setup and generates either shortcodes or template tags for easy use — lets just say, this is quickly going to replace my twitter carousel in the future.
  2. Page Builder Plugin (Free):
    Fundamentally going to change how I build themes. Page Builder allows you to build custom page layouts on a per-page basis. It populates designated areas with any WP widget, so as a bonus – I get to make new widgets for PB, but it also incorporates MetaSlider above…. This gives users all the power of designers now.
  3. WP-Help Plugin (Free):
    Allows WP themes / installers to give documentation to users from Within WordPress Admin area, so once a customer logs in – they can always find the tutorials / help documentations you have prepared for them.

If all this is sounding a little excitable – its because they are all inspired by this talk: Jared Novack – 17,170,200 Websites in 6 Months.

Mood: Stupid excited!
