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 100 plugins that will boost the functionality 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 8 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 3 of the best page builder plugins on WordPress and in addition you will learn how to design your own custom 404 page and how to add accordions to your pages.

Section 3 will cover plugins that are predominantly featured in 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 7, Ninja forms, Gravity forms and Formidable forms.

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 learn how to create galleries featuring your images and videos.

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 WR Mega Menu plugins. You will also learn how to use lightweight menu plugins that can enhance your menu such as the WP Sticky menu.

No WordPress website is complete without social media functionality which is why in section 7 you will learn how to use a wide range 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.

The last section will focus on plugins you can use to improve the default WordPress comment system. You will also learn how to use chat plugins as well which can be vital for business websites.

By the end of this course, you will have been exposed to over 100 plugins that will greatly improve your ability to make your WordPress website more attractive and functional for your customers.

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.
