What is a Wordpress Plugin? Wordpress Plugins are little pieces of working code that extends your Wordpress Website to make it awesome. There are all kinds of different Wordpress Plugins and the number goes in the thousands. Not all Wordpress Plugins are great and useful, but the best ones enable you to build truely professional Wordpress Websites that can keep up with the best Websites in the World.

What actually are Wordpress Plugins?

Since you know now what Wordpress Plugins are your next question might be where you can actually download them! There are two kinds of Plugins available. Free Wordpress Plugins can be downloaded directly from the Backend of your Wordpress Website. Premium Wordpress Plugins however, can be downloaded from third parties like the Envato Market and it's sub site Codecanyon.

Wordpress Plugins for Layout
11 Lectures 02:02:10

Create professional Layouts with the Visual Composer Page Builder Plugin. In this video you will learn the basics of the Visual Composer, where to get it, how to install it and where to start with the development of great layouts for Wordpress.

Visual Composer

Learn in this video how to generally use the Visual Composer and how to actually create awesome page layouts. Visual Composer comes with a big library of components that you can add to any of your page.
To create a layout you start by creating a row element. Then you can click on the plus in the row element to add any further element to it. I show you how to add a background image and a action box.

Creating Great Layouts with Visual Composer

Icon Boxes in Visual Composer are nice elements to present information like arguments for your business, or characteristics about your products to the visitor of your Wordpress Website.
An Icon Box is a little icon with a title text and some body text. If you put three of them in a row next to each other, this creates quite a nice layout.

Visual Composer: Icon Boxes

Now you will learn how to create some more advanced layouts with the Visual Composer Plugin for Wordpress. The example that you will see in this video is a 50 50 row, that mean a row that is divided into two columns. On of the side there will be a full size image and on the other side there will be attractive text, some icons and a call to action button.

Visual Composer: 50 50 Rows

This video summarises the great functionality of the Visual Composer.

Visual Composer: Outro

The Page Builder by Site Origins is a good alternative to the Visual Composer plugin. It is not as rich in functionality but it is a free plugin that is easily available through the standard plugin section of your Wordpress installation.
For simple and nice layouts this plugin is really helpful. Especially if you just want to create your personal Blog with Wordpress, this might be the right plugin for you.

The Revolution Slider 5 ist the best Slider Plugin for Wordpress out there. You can add a really professional looking slider to any Website. All you need are some great images in a sufficient size. Version 5 is a bit tricky, but in this video I show you every single step how to set the Slider Revolution 5 up and how to integrate it to your Homepage.

Wordpress Slider - Slider Revolution 5

Learn how to integrate a professional contact form to you Wordpress Website. The Contact form 7 is easy to setup, let's your visitors enter their message and contact details and the message automatically gets forwarded to your personal email-address. How cool is that? The Contact Form 7 is a must for a lot of Wordpress Websites.

Contact Form 7

Easy Google Fonts

Learn how you can offer your visitors the possibility to sign up to your newsletter and updates of your site, and products. MailChimp is one of the best solutions for this task. Although MailChimp offers a premium package, it is possible to use it entirely free until you reach 2.000 subscribers. In my opinion this is more than enough for the beginning.
I show you how you can set up lists and then create a sign up form that you can embed into you Wordpress Website. You have the choice of using a css styling from mailChimp or you can embed a "naked" form which then takes the css styling from the Wordpress theme that you are using.
