Formatting content in WordPress is easy when you code, but how many small business clients code? So far, I’ve only encountered one or two – and even they were not so comfortable in Text view. So I have to make it as easy as possible for my clients to wrangle content on their own…
These plugins are among my favorites. I’m using all of them right now on client projects, so I know from personal experience that they all work well with WordPress 3.8.1. I chose them because:
- They’re up to date, or at least recently updated
- They’re still actively supported by their developers in the plugin’s support forums
- They’re easy for clients to understand and use (this is key!)
Here is the list. It’s short, but sweet…
What it’s for: arranging content in tabs, accordions or toggle sets.
I found this wonderful thing yesterday after getting frustrated with another accordion plugin (if I’m frustrated, I can only imagine how my clients might react; there would be much gnashing of teeth). All of the tab and accordion plugins I’ve used work fairly well, but they require putting lots of shortcode within the page or post at key places to break up the content correctly, formatting it for the feature needed. This can be a pain due to certain default formatting features in WordPress that clients won’t know about or generally understand, and all the shortcode choices presented for the writer can be confusing.
