Description

As WordPress users, we all know the incredible power and difference that good plugins can offer our websites. This is why in this course, you will learn how to install and configure over 60+ plugins that will boost the functionality, security and design of any WordPress website.

With nearly 50,000 plugins available to download today, it can be quite a daunting task finding the right plugin for the right job. This course removes that headache and saves you time because I have spent months researching and finding the best plugins for you to use.

Most of the plugins covered in this course are FREE and are well maintained by their developers. They are all updated for the year 2017 and will work with the latest versions of WordPress.

The course is divided into 12 main sections.

The first section which is the biggest covers plugins that are primarily used for creating and editing content as well as plugins that can be used to improve the design of any WordPress website.

Section 2 covers plugins that are used for building page structures. You will learn how to use the Visual Composer page builder plugin which is one of the most popular and powerful page builders on WordPress. You will also learn how to work with the Accordions and Tab Widget plugins to improve the way you display your content.

Section 3 will cover plugins that are predominantly featured in your sidebar. These will include the Widget Shortcode and Flexible Posts Widget plugins with which you can use to enhance how you display content in your sidebars. You will also learn how to use the YouTube Widget Responsive plugin that will allow you to show YouTube videos on your sidebar.

In section 4, you will learn how to use different types of plugins for building and publishing contact forms on your WordPress website. You will learn how to use Contact Form 7Gravity Forms as well as the Optin Forms and Yeloni Exit Popup plugins which you can use to build your mailing list.

The next section will introduce you to plugins that you can use to design and publish sliders and galleries. You will learn about the Soliloquy Slider which is reputed to be the fastest slider for WordPress. You will also learn how to create galleries featuring your images and videos using the Foo Gallery plugin.

You will then move on to learn how to use plugins that you can use to build beautiful mega menus. You will learn how to use plugins like the Max Mega Menu and the WP Sticky Menu plugins. You will also learn how to use lightweight menu plugins that can enhance your menu such as the Menu Image plugin which allows you use icons and images to represent your menu items.

No WordPress website is complete without social media functionality which is why in the following section, you will learn how to use a couple of social media plugins that will allow your audience to not only follow you on social media but will also give them the ability to share your best content on their own social media platforms.

In section 9, we will focus on plugins you can use to improve the default WordPress comment system like the WP Discuz plugin. You will also learn how to use chat plugins like the Tidio Live Chat plugin which can be vital for business websites.

Section 10 is all about SEO.  SEO is a crucial for the success of any website and you will learn how to use some awesome plugins like the Yoast SEO which is one of the most popular plugins of all time. You will also learn how to use the Visitor Maps and Who's Online plugin to better analyze your traffic and study your major sources of traffic.

Security is a big part of any website and you will learn how to use some of the best plugins to secure and protect your site against hackers and malware in section 11. Some of these plugins include the Really Simple SSL plugin that will provide SSL encryption, the Antispam Bee plugin that you can use to combat spam and the incredible WordFence Security Plugin which is an all-in-one solution plugin for all your security needs.

Finally in section 12, we will cover plugins for maintenance. Its one thing to have a well designed website with good functionality and its quite another to have a site that is performing at peak performance. You will learn how to use several plugins to help you improve the speed of your site like the W3 Total Cache plugin. You will also be exposed to the WP Sweep plugin for cleaning up and maintaining your database as well.

Web & WordPress Developer, Cyber-security Expert

Hi there my name is Alexander Oni and welcome to my Udemy page. I am a professional web developer living in the United States of America. I currently work for a small web development company where I build websites for clients using the latest in web technology.

I have been building websites for the past 7 years now and have been working exclusively with WordPress for almost 4 years. My love for web development and teaching people how to build websites drove me to make my Udemy course on web development.

I am also a cyber security expert and have a masters degree in Information Security.

I enjoy watching football, movies and playing chess.
