Top 9 WordPress Plugins That Will Stick in 2022

Posted · Category: Best Collections, Tools

The right WordPress theme used in conjunction with the WordPress Platform allows a web designer to create almost any website design. There are situations however where “almost” isn’t quite good enough. The design may not have quite as much pizzazz as the designer hoped for, or may simply lack some functionality that, if added, would put it over the top.

That’s what WordPress plugins do. A plugin is a piece of added software that when put to use can extend the capabilities of a software system, in this case, a website.

There are more than 42,000 cool WordPress plugins in the marketplace. So, you should be able to design a website that could do anything and everything you could possibly think of.

It doesn’t work that way of course. Most WordPress themes feature more useful WordPress plugins. When they don’t provide everything you may need, it usually takes but one or two additional plugins to set things right.

Examples of how a WordPress plugin might add to your design will become quite obvious as you go down this list of these 9 top WordPress plugins for 2022 projects.

Choosing the right tool for the job is never easy for several reasons. There’s a huge number to choose among, you have to know what to look for, and your needs can sometimes be project-dependent.

Better tools for developers continue to appear over the horizon as app developers seek to bridge the development-operations gap that exists for many software solutions. Fortunately, there are already more than a few tools and services on the market. These tools can help to bridge that gap that also tend to be project independent.

Like the following 6.

 

1. Elementor

While Elementor has established an impressive reputation as a web design tool, not everyone may be aware that this open source tool was created with designers in mind. Because it’s an open-source software solution it’s natural to assume that Elementor has many powerful features, it’s flexible, and it’s easily extendable; which is indeed the case.

Elementor’s software development features include the ability to compile, minify, and externally load CSS files as well as the capability to easily assimilate custom CSS into any page, section, or widget. You can also trigger tasks via the Command Line (CLI), track data across multiple pages, and call up earlier versions and switch between versions.

As a user, you can access Beta versions, help the Elementor team uncover bugs and fix issues. You can also join thousands of others who have contributed to this project to immeasurably extend its functionality and extensibility. The documentation provides all you need to know to get the most from its frontend features, editor, and useful widgets.

 

2. AND CO

2

With AND.CO, you can automatically generate invoices from a single platform, based on data contained in your contracts, proposals, and time tracking results. AND.CO relieves you of manual or semi-automated duties such as manually inputting billable hours or having to constantly check when it’s time to invoice again. The platform lets you set up recurring invoices, receive alerts when clients view your invoices, and accept online payments

Since AND.CO’s mobile app can easily be synced across all your devices, you can view your invoices or create them on the go and keep abreast of your billings and cash flow. When payments are received, AND.CO automatically deposits them into your bank account.

Check Out the Website Components and Templates on the Visual Composer Hub

Posted · Category: Best Collections

A visual drag and drop editor is great for building a website quickly and easily, but the final product will only be as good as the design elements that were drag-and-dropped into it.

The Visual Composer Hub is a colossal library of content elements, blocks, and templates that make web design faster and easier and the final products better.

You don’t have to settle for what happens to be available. Since all the Hub content is personalized, “what’s available” is virtually anything you want or need.

Sounds great? Maybe its time to take a close look and see what the Hub is really all about.

What is Visual Composer Hub

The Visual Composer Hub is a cloud-based repository of templates, content elements, and more. It’s a virtual marketplace of website-building goodies, and it’s connected to your Visual Composer account.

Among other things, the Hub takes the place of all those plugins you had to invest in and/or the custom code you had to write to get what you wanted. With the Hub, you can search for ready-to-use content and download it directly into your Visual Composer Website Builder account.

1

Once in your account, the content is ready to drag, drop, and put to practical use.

The Visual Composer Hub Library

The size of the Hub’s library of content is amazing. It’s so enormous that you’ll find everything you need for any project. The content is completely compatible with any theme, including favorites you may already have used or intend to use.

If you want full access to all the Hub’s content along with unlimited downloads, you’ll want to subscribe to and unlock Visual Composer Premium. In any event, you can always view all the content in the forever-free Visual Composer Hub.

What’s Inside the Visual Composer Hub

First of all, downloading material from the Hub is as easy as it gets since its built right into the Visual Composer live-preview website builder. This easily accessible and downloadable material consists of these 4 main types of content.

  • Content Elements
  • Page Templates
  • Block Templates, and
  • Stock Images

 

1. Content Elements

The content elements in the Hub’s colossal library are first class and searching for them is a simple and slick process.

2

There’s plenty to choose from among the Content Elements; anything you’re likely to need in fact. What you’ll find are:

  • Media
  • Buttons
  • Post Grids
  • Social
  • Compatibility Elements
    You can integrate with Ninja Forms, Mail Chimp, Envira Gallery and more.
  • Advanced Elements
    These include logo sliders, hover boxes, tabs and more.
  • And, an E-Commerce plug

Since you can personalize what you select, there’s never a need to resort to coding to build an awesome, unique site. There will always be more to come too, since the Content Elements on the Hub are constantly updated.

And not to forget; with Visual Composer Premium there’s no limit on the number of Content Elements you can download.

What can you do with a Content Element once you’ve downloaded it into your account?

You can:

  1. Edit it
    There are multiple edit options for each element, including Element CSS Animations to create beautiful transitions right out of the box.
  2. Replace it easily
    You can also switch between elements. With the Smart Replace option you can easily change the look of your content.

 

You can also Use advanced features that include turbo-powered editing flexibility, creating content “types” for organizing and hierarchy-building purposes, and leaving notes to compatriots. Some of these advanced features are only available with a Visual Composer Premium account.

Here’s a quick peek at what Visual Composer Hub Premium unlocks.

2. WordPress Templates

 

Page templates make up an important section of the Hub library. There’s a WordPress template to match any theme and whichever template you select will be fully editable.

It’s simply a matter of finding a template that fits your website look and feel and clicking download to place it in your account. Edit or tweak it to fit your needs and you’ll have a beautiful page in minutes.

4

There’s plenty you can do in the Hub WordPress template section to make designing a site easy. You can for example:

  • Store any template automatically in your template library
  • Store pages you create as templates
  • Export, import, and customize any template
  • Apply global templates, and
  • Add template widgets

You don’t even have to be a designer or possess impressive design skills to create awesome pages. Instead, you can rely entirely on drag and drop design backed up by this Visual Composer comprehensive and unique designer template library. It’s your cloud-based solution to building beautiful websites.

 

3. Block Templates

For the finer details, the Hub’s Content Elements section is the solution, and for fast and easy website builds it’s the Hub’s WordPress templates.

But, what about “in between”? For that “sweet spot” the Block Templates library is where you’ll want to go. Block Templates represent the Goldilocks standard for achieving custom design using easy drag-and-drop functionality.

5

With a Visual Composer Premium subscription, you can unlock and enjoy the ease and flexibility of using Block Templates.

 

4. Stock Images

The Unsplash library of stock images is super-cool, it’s seamlessly integrated into the Hub, and your Hub downloads whichever images you select right into the Visual Composer Website Builder. How’s that for efficiency?

Best of all, you can view and select the images you want right from the Frontend editor

6

If you come across an image you really like and would like to see what else its author may have contributed, simply hover over the image and click the author’s name. It’s one good way to give your website a more unified look and feel.

Conclusion  

It’s true, the best drag-and-drop visual website editor you can find won’t get the job done if your choice of content elements is too narrow. You need a very large library with editable content elements and page and block templates, along with stock photography to make web design fast and truly simple.

These then, are the basics of what you’ll find in the Visual Composer Hub. We weren’t kidding when we said the library is colossal. There are add-ons and additional premium hub elements to check out too.

May we suggest you log in now to the free version of the Visual Composer Hub. There’s nothing to lose, and you have literally everything to gain.
