Other Plugins Compatible With Listable

As a fol­low-up for our Pre­mi­um Plu­g­ins To Extend the Theme Func­tion­al­i­ty arti­cle, we thought it use­ful to com­pile a list of pop­u­lar plu­g­ins we’ve found to be work­ing fine with Listable, despite the fact that we haven’t set out to inte­grate with them. So please bear in mind that we haven’t com­mit­ted our­selves to main­tain a smooth inte­gra­tion with them. They just fol­low the stan­dards (as do we) and nice things hap­pen as a con­se­quence.

Some of these plu­g­ins are in active use on our demo, while some were just test­ed due to their noto­ri­ety or inter­est­ing func­tion­al­i­ty.

Search Engine Optimization

SEO may not be what it used to be (we believe this to be a good thing) but it doesn’t hurt to keep your site in top con­di­tion.

  • YOAST SEO (we use this high­ly pop­u­lar, free plu­g­in on the demo)

Performance

Con­tin­u­ing with the SEO opti­miza­tion, there is no bet­ter way to boost up your site then by keep­ing it run­ning fast. One use­ful tool (but not a fix-all solu­tion) is the caching plu­g­in:

  • WP Rock­et (used on the demo) —  While a paid option, this will sure­ly make up for it through sheer sim­plic­i­ty and ease of mind. It’s prob­a­bly the best caching plu­g­in around for the most of us (some hints sup­port­ing this claim).
  • W3 Total Cache — A clas­sic caching plu­g­in, with a truck­load of options. So we would rec­om­mend it only to those that are more tech­ni­cal­ly inclined.
  • WP Super Cache — The oth­er high­ly pop­u­lar plu­g­in (from Automat­tic, the mak­ers of Word­Press), with more sim­plic­i­ty.

Design & Editing

  • Visu­al Com­pos­er — A high­ly pop­u­lar, pre­mi­um page builder plu­g­in that aims to allow you to eas­i­ly cre­ate pre­sen­ta­tion pages.
  • Site­O­ri­gin Page Builder — A free alter­na­tive page builder, pow­er­ful and quite easy to use.
  • Say What? — Eas­i­ly change any string on your web­site with­out edit­ing code — Nice!
  • Nav Menu Roles — used on our demo. Using this free plu­g­in you can display/hide menu items depend­ing on whether a user is logged in or nor, or if it has cer­tain cre­den­tials or not.
  • Menu Icons — Add icons to your menu items (we’re using it on the demo, under the Search menu).
  • WP Job Man­ag­er Emails (option­al): Allows var­i­ous email noti­fi­ca­tions. (eg. expired list­ings, new list­ing sub­mis­sion & more)

Selling Stuff

Others

There remains only one plu­g­in that doesn’t fit any cat­e­go­ry (and all at the same time). Jet­pack from Automat­tic. We would high­ly rec­om­mend you make this plu­g­in your best friend and use it on all your Word­Press instal­la­tions as it will empow­er you with sim­ple but pow­er­ful tools, start­ing from visu­al ones (tiled gal­leries, slid­ers, and so on), forms, com­ments, social shar­ing, and going to per­for­mance opti­miza­tions like Pho­ton (effec­tive­ly a free CDN) and security/monitoring. You will thank us lat­er.
