This post introduces you to the Themes and Plugins Cap Web Solutions uses on a regular basis. On a regular basis we will be posting additional information about new Genesis.
Primarily, we use free themes and plugins, other than these included with the Genesis Pro Pack (which number more than 60). But here are a few of the freebies that I couldn’t live without either on my own sites or those I develop for others.
Jetpack – Jetpack is a WordPress developed plugin that supercharges your self-hosted WordPress site with the awesome cloud power of WordPress.com. stats, email sign-ups, social integration, to name a few. Excellent package.
BackWPup Free – This plugin can save your butt one day! It can be used to save your complete installation including /wp-content/ and push them to an external Backup Service, like Dropbox, S3, FTP and many more. With a single backup .zip file you are able to easily restore an installation. Every site deserves this protection at a minimum.
Contact Form 7 – Contact Form 7 can manage multiple contact forms, plus you can customize the form and the mail contents flexibly with simple HTML.
WooCommerce – The basis for all eCommerce sites we develop. Delivers enterprise-level quality and features, backed by full support from WooThemes.
