A slideshow is a very effective tool to help you capture the visitor’s attention and promote content, products or services. In this article we will create a custom slideshow and embed it in our post’s content with the help of the Smart Slider 3 plugin.
A series of “How-to” articles that will help you with your day-to-day WordPress tasks.
Sliders are a great way to capture the reader’s attention. You can easily feature anything you want to promote whether it is content on your site, products you sell or services you offer. In this article we will check out the process of creating a slider and using a custom block to embed it in our content.
Galleries are a great way to break the monotony of continuous text, they can make your articles appear less daunting and more appealing to the average reader. They can also help readers visualize concepts you are writing about and of course they can be great assets when it comes to promoting products or services. All the above reasons make inline galleries a great asset for any content creator out there. In today’s installment of our block editor related articles we will be using the Modula Gallery plugin to help us create and use galleries in our content.
Whether you want to spice up your post’s content with some images to make it more pleasing to the reader’s eye, or are a photography professional who wants to promote and showcase your work, you need a simple and effective way of creating galleries and adding them in the content. The WordPress block editor offers a quick and easy way of bundling a few images in a gallery and placing them along the text, but if you need something more complex you might need to take a look at custom blocks provided by plugins like FooGallery.
Images are an invaluable tool for any content writer out there. They help readers better visualize the subject they are reading about and make the content more visually pleasing by introducing colorful breaks in the flow of the text.
We are concluding this part of our block editor series on contact form custom blocks with Ninja Forms. We will be using the custom block provided by the plugin to complete a basic contact page for our WordPress based website.
Contact forms provide a quick and easy way for site visitors to communicate with the owner, this makes contact pages essential for any modern website. Today we’re going to use the Caldera Forms plugin to create a contact form for our block based contact page.
Another way to embed contact forms on a page using the block editor is via shortcodes. This is particularly useful for plugins that do not yet offer custom blocks, because it allows us to still utilize our favorite plugin in the block editor right now.
Sometimes you might have a category or tag that you want to prevent from displaying on category list widgets, tag clouds, the post’s meta, or anywhere else for that matter. For example, in our popular blogging theme Public Opinion we use the tag
featured to denote the posts that will appear on the theme’s featured section. We did not want to display this tag on places tags are listed since it’s there just to help you manage your featured post with ease and not provide any info to the site’s visitor. Today we’ll create a small plugin to help us hide a category or tag on any theme.
