This Blufgan is by Martin Bellman's, and I have already installed and activated the plug in on my task a PDO upside. When you do the same, calm down here two sets ins and then you would see business Oz indicate, Oh, now in here we can festival select the time zone from Europe slash London is the default. I'm gonna go all the way up here to America, and I'm going to choose New York because this is my time zone and for the time for March, you have to tell our format or the 24 hour format. I'll just stick with it all of our format. Let's savor changes. Let's move on to the hours Now We need to add a location, first of all to indicate when we open in that particular location. So let's at a location. The name here would be Let's go with New York. I have a business in New York. Let's add that. And now in here, Rick and first of all, edit. The odds were open. So for Monday, let's open from 9 a.m. to, let's say, eight PM to use it would be 9 a.m. 28 p. M. As well. Wednesday would be 9 a.m. 26 p. M. Thursday would be 9 a.m. as well and all the way to a PM and in Friday, let's go with 10 a.m. 22 P. M. Saturdays and Sundays were closed, so we don't have to add anything in there. Let's had done. And now for holidays as well, we can indicate when we're going on holiday. So we can say, for example, General, we let's say, generally, 50th we're going on holiday from 1 a.m. all the way to 12 PM and let's just hit, done and finally can also add your vacation from a certain period to a certain period.

Also add in HTML for default message for closed as sorry we're closed. You can also add HTML as well. You can include the time and day in the output as well. Let's do that. And now you can also indicate a warning. Whenever you're about to open or whenever you about to close, simply click on the check box any head and in here you can customize the message and also determine went to show the messages in advance. All right, let's go ahead and save our changes. Let's move on down to the table now in here, we can change how the the time for months will be displayed. You have normal. We also have consolidated. This is the coin format as it is right now under normal. If we go with Consolidated, let's update the example. And now you can see Saturday and Sunday are on one single line. Are Monday and Tuesday are also on a single line because they share the same times. Let's go back to normal. I think I prefer normal. Let's update the example. Okay, And then for the output we have table and we also have in line. Let's see what in line does. And as you can see Inland is just one single long line, indicating when we're open and when we're closed. I don't think like this limb. Just go back with the table. Let's play the example. Okay, We can also add the holidays and vacations to our table as well. Let's just save changes and we're done because when we come down to codes, this is basically where we can now choose how, how and where to display our times.

The good thing about this Barkindo is that it also has widgets, which were, You can insert your time zones into your sidebars. So let's go to appearance. This go to widgets and for my side ball down here we have the B H I display business hours indicator, and we also have to display opening hours so the very 1st 1 will indicate whether we open or not. Let's just choose location for New York. Let's save that, and then the next one will be the opening ours itself. Let's drop that in here. Let's say title will be opening hours for New Yorkers. Well, let's save that. And now let's take a look at our contact US page and now you can see we have the message saying It's Thursday 11:30 a.m. We're open and we also have our open ours displayed in Italy in hair.

Logo Carousel Slider: an excellent looking for displaying logos on your what press rep said would be the local council slider by ideal plug ins. Now, with this book and you can display logos off your partner's your sponsors, you are filled. It's your friends, people you do business with, and so on and so forth. This plug in is very late. Wait, and it's also responsive, which is really, really good. And it also has a torch and swipe support, which means that users from any device is convicted logo or Karl Soule slide and nicely, regardless of what device there viewing this later on, whether it's ah ah, mobile device or PC or laptop, you name it. All right. So I have already installed and activated the plug in, and when you do the same, you would see the local Cal Soul tab in here simply click on add new logo. What I'm gonna do is I do have some locals from some companies in here I have for Apple for linguine, for Facebook, for chrome and for Firefox, Limoges go with Firefox. First of all, let's set the logo there. Well, im just add title, which would be Mozilla. I'm going to go ahead and eat. Publish. Let me add another one. This would be Apple. That said, the Apple logo. Let's hit publish. I'm gonna pause the video and I'll add three more logos. All right, So, as you can see, I've added a few more logos off edit logos for LinkedIn, Facebook and Google. Now let's jump down to settings and on the general sentence. This is where we can change how the slides would look like nothing much to change it, really, Except maybe the image Klopp. Now this is very, very important. If your logo's are off the same size, then you don't need to cope, however different sizes. Then you may want to allow the plug into crop the images to a specific with and heights that you can sit in those boxes. My love goes off the same size soul, say Image club. No items to display. Let's go with three at a time. Let's save a changes now to display the actual slider itself. You would have to make use off this shot coordinated say's logo on the school council on this course slider. Let me cover this and let me go ahead to a new page and then just paste that in here. Let's just say, uh, partners will be the title of this page Partners. Let's publish the page. And now let's view the page and you go We have linguine fizz book Crume and then we have the I was a handful Apple and then we have for Firefox as well. Awesome! Let's make some changes. Let's go back. Let's see what else we can do. Sit ins. Alright, What I'm gonna do here is I'm going to not displayed in navigational arrows. Let's display the titles for the logos. Let's see Auto play, Yes, pagination, Yes, let's ah also remove the local border as well. Let's save a changes. And now let's go back in head and see what we have and they ago that looks so much different right now without the borders and with the pagination. So this is an excellent way for this plane logos on your what press website. Unfortunately, the slider settings and style settings are only available for the pro version deployed in which I believe is only 10 box. Right now, she can't see. It's just $10 for the pro version and the pro version. You can also have the shot called the generator that would allow to control even more how the slides actually displayed. You can set the phone sized caller logos category categorization, slight speed control and so much more features available with the pro version off this plug in. So once again, this has been the local council slider by ideal plug ins. Thank you for watching. I will see you in the next class. 5. Meteor Slides: the next letter plug in on our list is Mitchell Slides by Josh Lose, and this is one of the more lightweight plug ins that you can find for quitting slides. But unfortunately, it doesn't quite have as many functions or is as future rich as the author. A slider plug ins on list. Now, when you install and activate the plug in, you will see slides in here we have the option of cretins light shows, which are more like quitting categories for your slides. So let's go ahead and quit AIDS a category right off the bat. Let's call this category. Ah, the Betty's. So we're going to have all the ah, the bad guy Character doesn't move. It'll be and dislike show. Let's add that we have our citizens in here, which are pretty minimal. You can determine the quality off slides to show for each light show. You can change the height and with off your slides. And one of the good things about this program is that there are several transition styles available. Wall stick with fate. For now, you can change its transition speed, slide, duration and then determine whether or not you want to show the navigation in here. Let's save our changes. And ah, we'll move on to quit. 18 slides. Let's other very 1st 1 here. And this one is going to be the Terminator. Let me set the featured image. We have the Terminator, Berry Z There there is. Let's sit that you can add your slide link in here. But I'm gonna said this too bad days publish. So what I'm gonna do is to pause the video, add three more bodies to dislike show. All right, you can see I'm back. And I have created three more slides. One for the Godfather, Jason and the Predator. Now, in order to display the slides, we will have to make use off a short code. And that short code is what we have over here on these delish in page. This is it right here, mate. You're on the school slide show. This is what we have to use. So I'm gonna copy this. Let's go down to one off. Ah pages, The home page and I am going to pace the shot cord in here. Let's go ahead and update the page. View the page and Ah, there you go, and this doesn't will look all that great. It's way too small. So let's make some changes. Let's go back, Teoh Slide. Actually, let's go to the settings Rather and here we're gonna change the height. Let's make this a lot bigger. Let's go with 7 20 Let's make the slide with something like 1200 pixels. Okay, at the Navigation will show both the previous next and paged. So let's do both. Let's see if that changes. And now let's go back and see how this is going to look like View home page. And now this is much better. As you can see, this is definitely much better than the previous. That sleight showed that we had. So this is the fade effect so we can change the transition style from fade to, let's say, grow. Why, as an example, let's savor changes. See how this will look like let's with first a page. Okay, lets see. Wait for it. Okay, so that's the grow. Why? Where we have the slides coming from the bottom to the top. So there are all the transitions tells that you can use him near, and then you can choose whatever you whatever one you prefer. You can also display the slides in your sidebar with the use of a widget. Let's go to appearance widgets, and then you can see we have the Mitchell slides, which it in here. Let's drag that to the very top we can select. The bed is selection in here. Let's save. And now let's go to the main home page that has a side ball. And there you can see we have our slides displaying in the side ball. There you go. All right, so basically, this isn't exactly the most functional. What first plucking out there for creating slides? It does have the advantage of being very lightweight and been very easy to use, but it's severely lacking. When it comes to the functionality and features available, you can read more on how to use the plug in by. We didn't do documentation in here. It's quite extensive. You have several topics in here how you can use a metadata and how you can also use captions. But we didn't about the slight Shal skins. They do have two major types off caption skins. They have the regular captions, and they have the retrograde captions as well. So you can read more on how to use this plug in if you're interested. So that's it for the Mitchell slides.

And as the name suggests, this is a plug in for creating beautiful, responsive menus for your what? Chris website. And it is particularly useful if your current what press theme doesn't have a responsive menu. All you don't like the corn responsive menu that your theme has, and you want to have an improvement when you install and activate it plugging. You will see the Responsive Menu tab in here. Just click in there now, in here we have access to the initial set up will be can set the breaking point full our mobile menu. We can choose the many we want to use as a responsive menu, and we can also hide the CSS off the menu that we currently have. We'll take a look at this later. Let's come down here Teoh Menu And in here we can said the order off a menu items by default, we have the title menu search box, and then we have additional content. You would notice, though, that we do have PLO and semipro attached to some of this sentence. What this means is that the pro is only available with the pro vision of the plug in while with semipro. We have access to some of the values for that particular setting, like, for example, for the menu with we could change the with in percent age. But with the pro version, you have access to changing the with in terms of pixels, EMS or even who EMS. So we can set the maximum with the minimum with make some other changes inhale like the sex full menu at the link. You could change the link location as well. If you want it to, you could add an image for your menu. Change the tattle background. Cole or the title Coehlo Total have a color and a few other options. Now in here, we can add some additional content after the menu so we could add something like, Let's say, uh, click on any off the menu items above something like that. We have a Qala. We have the animation that we can change as well. We have slide and we have something called Push. You could also change the direction from each of the manual up here. You can also close the menu on body clicks or link link clicks as well. We have additional options to customize the search box. The background colors is where we can even enable a background image. So let's actually do this. Let's choose a background image and ah will use this since it has a deck, background will choose that and note that if you choose a bag on image and you choose a background color as well, the image will take precedence over the color so you won't see any color. It'll if the big One image occupies the entire width and height off the menu. He could admit protocols in him as well. The text collars add some additional styling for your text. Changed the phone sized element. You could add well, unfortunately, that the pool vision allows you to add a page of all the house about to say, you can also add an over labor that's only available with the pull version. Okay, let's let's update our options. We have the button as well, which will be the actual responsive button, the animation type. Now this kind of got me a little pissed off because they have so many author animations available Onley in Diplo Vision and then the only one that is set to give us was the boring animation they could as well. A just given us a different animation that could use, but they give us born in which it's it's It's something, I guess better than nothing, right for the position type you have. The absolute fixed relative will use fixed for now and there. You have other options in here again as well. Once again, you can customize the location of the button. The bottom side as well is it from the left or right? You can change the continent size and change the height and width off your button. Change the line, head off the hamburger itself and you have all the options down here to change the text.

There you come in here and men if I your scripts and also place your scripts and the food. To turn this to on this in most cases tends to improve the speed off your WordPress website . But if you're having any issues, you can always come back in here and change this back to off. You could also change the admission, speed and transition speed in here if you wanted to, will open toe options now. Unfortunately for the custom CSS, it's only available with pro vision of the plug in the head ABBA Single menu Onley available but the poor vision of the plug in as well. But with important export, you can actually import the settings off this plug in from another website. If you want to use that, you could also export your own sentence. Just come in here and click export options And then you will see a Jason file that you can download an important to another Waters website. And of course, you can always come in here and we set your options as well. Okay, let's stop dates once again. And now let's take a look at a responsive menu. That's bank in Firefox in here. Let's refresh the page. And now let's minimize. And now you can see we have, ah, humble gunmen. You in here? If I click in there, you can see we now have a bag on image. We have a menu items. We have a search box, and we also have the text that we wrote down that should appear after the main menu. Okay, cool. Let's mix of improvements in here. We can go back. Teoh Menu. Let's change the with from 75 to 100% certain occupies a full with off browser. Let's Ah, come back down here. Let's change some animation. Let's see. Where is that? Okay, let's change the appear film to bottom. Let's do that Instead, let's come back here. Let's update our options. And now let's take a look again. Let's refresh this page. Now let's click on the humble gunmen. You and now you can see this looks a lot better. You can see right now it occupies the full with off our blows. Er close. This looks so much better. Like, this is a lot better. Now you would notice that we do have my theme. Other does have its own mobile menu in here, which is kind of very balling, as you can see. So this is definitely a lot better than what I currently have. Now, if I wanted to hide this many, so we don't have to blow menus showing, I will have to add the CSS that displays this menu. So unfortunately, if you're not conversant with CIA says you might have issues in here. But if you are, let's go out, go ahead and try to hide this menu that's inspected Firebug. Okay, so I can see the menu box Container is what displays is the continent that contains our menu. So if I hide this, let's just see, let me type in this play none. Okay, so that goes. So what I can do is just to copy this class. I'm just copy this class white here. Copy. Let's bring back. But I was Ah, and I'm gonna go about some initial set up and I'm going to paste the class in here. Let's update the options. And now let's see again. Let's refresh and cool so she can sue in. Now. The mobile menu for our theme isn't showing up anymore. It only shows up before our actual of responsive menu shows up. So as soon as our expensive many shows up, you can see right now it disappears. So that's it for the responsive menu. Plug in a very wonderful plugging for creating beautiful, responsive menace for you. What purse website Again, they do have a pro vision with alot more options, and I actually believe that it's quite cheap. Let's see, From what I could see, it was about $14 price in Yeah, there you go. So it's it's $15 basically for one over upset, which I think is very, very reasonable.

Enough of this begin to walk, dumping confused by mandatory there, just simply telling you that they strongly or let me just say super strongly recommend that you have addresses and email I don't agree with, Ari says.

I will give Facebook, Twitter and Google Plus and let's just add YouTube as well. Now in here, you can add your own custom. Aiken.

Ah, let's just go with orange for now and off course with the apparent vision. They have more up styles as well. They can choose from now. In here, you can also choose to animate your icons. For example, when you hover over them, what should happen? Let's say, Let's let's have them scale in size And we couldn't even have them shuffle automatically as well.

This is the purple box that will appear. We can change how it looks like in here we can change the text, the font color, size and then in here. We can also determine where the boxes should show up. In this case, I'm just gonna select on block posts on Lee and now in here, it says. When shall the pope is shown? Is it once every X number of seconds after the user's 11 on the site, or every time a user scores to the end of the page? Let's just leave that the default option. Let's save this.

So with this plug in, not all he can use as share your content on their social media platforms and also fool you on social media. But they can also sign up to receive your new posts by email. So this is the default box, which you can change the way it looks down here. We have all the options available, and there are three different ways how you can display this subscription box on your site. You can display it in your widgets using a short code or simply copying and pasting this HTML code, and I believe that's it's so let's just say that and, uh, let's take a look at what we have. That's lots of options. Let's take a look at this post that's come all the way down here. Now you can see we have our social media icons in here. Let's go back. Let's go back to the sets in. So actually have it in here. Let's see. What is that? An admission we want to give. Let's change this film any other wishes for icons. All right, so we want to make them float, actually.

So in here they have the discussion of how you can again access You would have to claim your feet. You'll have to subscribe to the specific feeds, but it is free, by the way, so don't worry about that, but it's pretty straightforward.

They do have a message books, any way you can message them, asking them for help. Don't forget that they also have a pro version off the plug in, which is even more sophisticated than the free version, which we've just analyzed. They have it in here, and I think it's about $19 or something like that.

Widget CSS Classes: one of my friends let us to injury award presses the fact that by default we cannot add classes or ideas to all what press widgets. Now, if you will look into style, how the widgets look like this could be unnecessarily difficult, because by default we can add classes or I DS. Thankfully, though there is a plug in called the Widget CSS classes by Cindy. Only this plug in. We can easily add I DS or CSS classes, too. Are what press widgets. Now when you install the plug in, calm down here to settings, click on which it says is classes. And now from here, we can configure the general sentence for the plug in. Now, by default, this pocketable already add classes to your WordPress widgets. A snooze. You activate the plug in and you can see in here. It's added noble classes first and last classes, and also it has added even an old classes. Let's take a look at this. If I come down here to my budget in here for the categories and inspect the element, you can see right there that we do have categories. I'm sorry we do have a class off which, attached to this is the number class in here we have the wicked, even class as well. And then we had the classle video. You can see the very first we get in here, which is the search bar. We have the class off budget one which at first and then we get awed. So by default, this broken world already add some classes force. However, we could also choose to add our own custom classes, which I'll show you in just a minute. But back in here, we can also choose to show an additional field full i d. Let's do that now. For the class field trip, you could show attacks to pre defined both, or simply hide the class field altogether. Who will stupid text in here? You can add your pretty final classes as well. Let's save changes. You can also import and export your settings from this page. Now let's go to appearance Widgets page. And now, when I click on a widget in here, can now add my I D. And I can add my class as well so they just go ahead and add that say, ah, search the class of search. And then, let's say, Ah, I d off searches just as an example was saved that let's go back in here. Let's refresh the page. Now let's inspect search widget and let's see what we have. There you go. So you can see we have the I D. Off searches and then we have the class off search in him. So that's it for the very simple isn't to use widget CSS classes by Cindy Thank you for watching the video and I will see you in the next class. 19. Widget Options: the next week. It plugging on our list is widget options by PHP bits, and this is a very similar plug into the display, which it's plug in, except that this plugging has more options available. When you install the plug in, simply come down here to your settings and then you'll superjet options in here. Click there and now in here you have general settings that you can configure studied with the pages visibility. But in all honesty, I don't think there's anything into. You need to change in here If you click on the political sentence, for example, you have three Mitchell settings, which would be Do you want to enable posters restriction, which is automatically sicked? Do you also want to enable taxonomy restriction? Which is also take that and finally, and you want to enable miscellaneous options? You typically, who would want all of these three options available for you so there isn't any need to uncheck anything in here? Let's close that now. The vices restriction, custom alignment and then high title all you can change anything in here. For example, if I click on configure sentence and here there were no additional set is available. I'm guessing this is because this is the free vision. I believe the Provigil will have additional sentence available. Full each one of these general settings now for the configure sitting on the classes and I d. You can decide to enable the I D field, which would delay to add AIDS for your widgets. And then you can also choose the field type for the classes we have to text field. You have the pretty fine class check boxes, or you can just choose both or neither. And now in here, you can add your pretty fine CSS classes that you may have. Let's close that and then display logic. This would be for WordPress developers only. If you're not a what does developer please do not do anything in here? There is no need to check anything. Him Inhale has just exit that now that we've installed the plugging, Let's go to our parents, Let's go Teoh Widgets and let's take a look at. But we did as an example of click on Search. Now in here, we have the very first option available, which is to either decide to hide or show this particular widget, which is very similar to what the display, which it a pleasant, offers us. You can choose to hide or show, and then you can choose the pages in here. You can choose the post types here, and you can also choose the taxonomy is that you want to display or hide the widget on. Next up is the devices way. Whether you want to show this particular budget on specific devices or high damages a pretty useful feature, especially they're trying to show a different kind of layout for your mobile device, as opposed to what you would show on the deck stop. So as an example, you could hide this particular budget for tablets and then for mobile devices and then Onley show them for the decks up as an example. Next up is the alignment, which, unfortunately with the free version the plug in you can choose different alignments for different devices. You can only choose one particular alignment our for all devices, which is kind of a bomb. Hope of the free vision with the provision, or you can choose different alignments for different devices. And then, of course, we have the miscellaneous where you can decide to hide the widget title, you can add your classes and I ds. And then again, logic. This would be for what purpose developers, where you can add a conditional Taggart conditional logic. So, for example, they could say something like, If this particular page has more than 600 words, then don't show this widget something like that. That's where you would do stuff like this. And then finally, we have the plus button that shows you basically what you're missing out on by not going for the pro version. So overall, this blocking definitely has more features available down the very simple display budgets Plug in it is by a P attributes once again, and I would encourage you. If you do like the plug it, you may want to take a look at the pro version. The provisioned definitely has more features available. Let's quickly go back. I'm just quickly sure you all right? So these are the additional features available with the provision. You can walk with shot golds at animation you Zervos restriction, and of course, you can also visible which it's as well, So feel free to take a look at the prove version. Thank you for watching the video, and I will see in the next class 20. WP Jump Menu: and awesome plugging you might want to get is the WP jump.

Fortunate video. I will see you in the next class. 25. Document Gallery: a village, and for your plugging that would allow you to create galleries from your documents there. Look no further than the document gallery plugging by Dan Rossiter and demure. And as you can see right now, the reviews have been very, very good for the plug in. The weightings are pretty splendid. 84 5 stairs and just 11 stop. And there was, and there is a reason why. And that's because this is a very good plug in. What it does is very similar to plug ins that create galleries off your images. This planet will create a gallery for your documented documents like your PDF files. Excel files makers afford files, videos or your files and so on. Now, when you install the plug in, simply come down here to your settings and you will see document gallery. Click in there and you'll have access to the general settings. First of all, most of the options in here are pretty straightforward. They do have a service called fancy where applicable automatically generate thumbnails for your documents. Have checked that already there is a limit inhale as well set to minus one, which means no limit but If for some reason you wanted to restrict content creators on your side from being able to add a set it modernise sitting and want off the documents Image gallery, you can set their limit in here. There is something there called meme types, which basically we fished to the kinds of documents that can be added to a gallery. You have application, you have video, you have text, you have audio and you have image. So if for any reason, you didn't want content creators when you're said to be able to add audio files as an example, you can simply come in here and we move audio and there would not be able to add audio files to the galleries. Let's come down here to form no generation. There is 1/3 party service called Thumb Murdered. Comb will talk about that in just a second, but for audio and video, it's been said to locally generate thumbnails for you and video files. Now there is something there called ghost script and a magic. You might not be able to choose either one of these options. If you can choose either one off them, then it's because this service itself has not been installed on your Web server, So whatever commend to you is to contact your Web posts and tell them that you want ghost script to be installed on your Web server. What goes to script those is that it helps it to process pdf files very, very quickly. So I believe that you should be able to have access to ghost script. Now in magic tends to be a bit more restricted in that unless you have a one of the more expensive accounts, one of the more expensive were posting accounts with your Web host. You might not have access to imagine, but you really don't need the magic. What you need here is ghost script. So once again, if you can't check the ghost script books in here, contact with Post, tell them that you won't go scrip installed, and you shouldn't have access to this box. You can set your maximum mill dimensions in here and add your custom CSS Inhale as well. Let's save changes. Let's move on to the next tab Now number dot Co. Apparently there is a thought purchase. It is called a thumb button call, which processes thumbnails for your documents, like your PDS, power points, word, documents and so on and so forth. And apparently they do a far better job than the document gallery plug in, and they do have subscriptions. 9 99 is the basic one per month. If you do have, If you were upset, Brother is a gallery document gallery website where you have lots and lots of documents. This might be what checking out? Okay, they do have a trial period off seven days so you can go in there, pay for the subscription and see how well it performs on your side and maybe warmth taking a look at. Once you create an account with them, you can simply come in here and add your user i D and a secret. And then you will be able to use the thumb. But of course, service on your site. Thumbnail management. We haven't yet created any gallery, so it's empty. Logging as well is empty, and that is because in here for the advanced tub it's a Z. But that's log the bog and every information related to document gallery it's set to. It's unchecked. Now they do have a one. Hey, that say's unless you really know what you're doing. You should not torch these values. I always like to play it safe when it comes to using plug ins and walking with computers in general. So if for any reason you needed to change something here, please be sure that you know what it is that you're doing before you come in here and change anything. All right? Now, let's go ahead and create eight. If the committee gallery, let's come down here to our pages, that's at a new page and then just add a title in here and say documents. I'm gonna go ahead and add my media. And now in here you would see we have create a document gallery, which I'm gonna do so and our from here. I am going to select the files that I want to have in my gallery. I do have some pdf Fells, which I'll choose. I also have an MP three audio file. I have a ping image. I have two more pdf documents, A have a video for my YouTube website, my YouTube channel, other and I have another pdf documents. I'm gonna go ahead select over them and then create the new document gallery that has been about it's almost created already. Right now, we do have all the files now in here to the right. You can now make custom changes to the spectacle gallery. You can choose the number of columns that you want. You can open the thumbnail links in a new window, included document descriptions and do some of the sentence in here as well. Let's just go ahead and insert the document gallery, and from here I am going to go ahead and hit. Publish And now let's view the page and you go so you can see. Right now we do have our documents. And, of course, when I click on any one of them, click on the video, for example. You can see right now hope that's me. That's me like that so you can see right now the video plays, Let's click back. And of course, you can also open up a Pdf files in here as well. And finally, the ah audiophile also plays, as you can see, so that's how to create galleries for your documents. If I go back to the back end, let's go back to set in, stoke him in gallery. Go to thermal management Now. In here, you can see all the formulas have just been generated When we corrected the new gallery. So that's how to create galleries for the documents using the document gallery. Plug in. Thank you for watching. I will see you in the next class. 26. Duplicate Post: If you're looking for your plugging that would allow you to duplicate or clone you existent posts and pages, then I would absolutely recommend the duplicate post plug in by Lopo. This is the best plugging out there for making copies of your posts, your pages.

You can also increase the many order, buy whatever I want to add in here, you can choose the meta feels that you don't want to copy whenever you're making a duplicates in here, and then you could also choose not to copy.

They'll be allowed to copy our post on pages, but there is a one, and here it sees users will be will be able to copy all posts and that passwords and contents of password protected posts maybe become visible two on desired uses and visitors . So be careful. Whenever you're choosing extra rules can clone existing pages and posts. Now, if you have some additional post types in here, you can select them and you'll you'll be able to make clones of them as well. Let's say that changes and let's go to display Finally, and now in here, you can show the clone links in your post list. You edit screen. You had Minbar pork actions as well, and you can also choose to show another date notice whenever there's a new applet available for a plug in, and that would also tell you whatever new changes comes with the allergies vision off the plug in. All right, so let's just save changes again, even though we don't really change anything here except at in the prefix and suffix. Now, how can we actually clone? Let's go to our posts now. From here, I can just heat clone, and now you can see we have clone, as you can see for the prefix. And then we have copy as the suffix off the title of the cloned article.

Plug in easy testimonials, and it is by which had Gabriel and Gaja gaga. Or however you pronounce this name. Now this is a plug in for creating testimonials on your website, and this will be very useful if you have a business trip side or your website sells a particular product or some products or services, and you wanna show potential clients and customers that you offer a very good service. Or you're often, if a good product and the best ways, of course, by showing testimonials, film people who have bought a product and those who are happy with the product.

Let's suppose that will go ahead and click the basic settings, so in here you can add your costume CSS. You can show the Testament testimonials and search, and you can also allow HTML Texana testimonials as well. If you wanted to. Let's come down here to compatibility options. These are primarily for troubleshooting, so unless you're having issues with the pollen out for comment, not changing anything in here. Just leave the default options as they are. The item reviewed options as well. Again, this is full s CEO purposes. Unless you know what you're doing, I will know where, Commander, that you change anything in here at all for the shot. Could options. In here you have the default short codes that come with the plug in. So you can display a random testimonial by using this shot cold in here. We have the one for a single testimonial, and we have the short codes for a list of testimonials, a cycle submission count and as well the greed display for your testimonials. Now the only 10 went over commended changing the default text in here is if the shot calls don't walk on your website for one reason or the other. If they're not walking, the economy is coming here and then change the text, change it to something else, and then see if that works for the cash options.

Also, if you had someone who reviewed your article all your product or service, you can show the picture as well. I think that lends even more credibility to the testimonial. So in here you can choose the default thumbnail size for the image. Or you can simply use a gravitas or the mystery man. If they don't have any images because we have these little options, we can change the text for the previous and next slides. You have the options for changing the link text. You can also show a link address for the view more link, or you can even just show the view. More testimonials are link as well now for the costume filled options. If you intend on sharing custom fields along with your testimonials in here, you can decide to show those customer feels above the testimonials. The default is set to show the testimonial first and then the custom fields below them. And that's what I would recommend because inherits a is the check in this box may have adverse effects on certain styles. So unless you assistance expert and you know what you're doing over commend, not check in this box, you have your with options where you can said a global with for your testimonials. But be advised that you can also said this. Whenever you're displaying your testimonials on any page, let's come down here to themes and, thankfully, the free version of this book.

So that's why adding stars can add in a school to it in like 12345 can be beneficial. So let's go with the stars. Let's go ahead and said that Let's publish our page. Now let's view the page and there you go Testimonials. We have impressive service from James McDonald, ISI off McDonald Enterprises Five out of five. We have Arnold Palmer, a professional golfer who also give us favor to five, said, Our product is outstanding and, of course, John James from one week Enterprises who thinks are service is superb. So this is one way off this play in our testimonials. Let's try another way, then just go ahead and remove this short code. Let's go back to our testimonials button. Let's go with the greed of testimonials. So you know we can choose a number of columns. We have three, which is fine. We have the advanced options now but you can configure with with off the greed of the with off each sales, pacing and other things like that. I am just gonna leave all this blank and see what comes out of it. Our testimonies. But Page, we have specific amount of 10 which is fine. We only have three to begin with filter testimonials. Again, we don't have any categories, so that's how it is feels to display Let's go the date, location and, of course, the title. And now for the rating. Of course, once again as stars, let's insert that Let's update the page. And now let's view the page. And there you go. So now this is the greed, as you can see, the greed display off our testimonials so you can always come back in here and then try walking with the our testimonial cycle and see how that works out for you. Remember that you can also display a single testimonial or a random testimonial anywhere on your page, even in your sidebar as well. And speaking of side ball, if I come down to my appearance, go to widgets, you can see that the plug and also creates different regions for us. We have the cycled greed, the list single testimonial, is it? It testimonials, some meat, a testimonial. So let's do this. Let me drag this in here to a sidebar. Let's see what we have over here. And unfortunately, it say's that this feature requires easy testimonials. Pro. So I'm so you can actually have people submitted testimonial. A. That was my lame attempt to tease you, but basically what this does is with the pro vision of the plug in. You can actually invite your clients to submit it a seminal so they will see a light, a testimonial or cemented testimonial and then, when they click on the button to take them to a page Reddick and now by this testimonial and submitted on your own behalf. So if you want to have this feature, you would have to go with the pool vision off the plug in. But there are all the widgets in here like dependent testimonial, single testimonial cycle list, and agreed that you can also use in your side boyfriend to display your testimonials in your sidebar. So going back down here to ah settings, we have the import and export testimonials which, unfortunately, if you want to import testimonials or export testimonials again, the's are only available, although the pro version off the plug in and you can actually get 10% off. If you subscribe to the newsletter, you have the notice in here. Maybe this might still be available when you watch this video. If not well, but I look next time, I guess. Ah, finally, they do have the help on instruction. Stab in. Here we can read MAWR, but the plug in contact support again. Unfortunately, this is only available with the pope vision of the plug in. Gosh, I'm really trying my best to convince you to buy are the full version.

So that's it for the testimonials plugging easy testimonials by which had Gabriel End, whose name of all that cannot pronounce properly. Thank you for watching the video, and I'll see you at the next class 28. Featured Comments: another incredibly light with plugging they could use to enhance the functionality off your comments section is the featured comments Plug in it is by Pippen, Williamson and would Karsh, Kakkar, etc. And what is blocking doors is that it helps you to either highlight a particular comment or bury a comment. Now I'm pretty sure you must have seen in several blocks before on other WordPress websites , or even with all the websites in general, where a particular comment stands out, form the other comments. They'll make it featured either by either by giving it a special background Coehlo or having some sort of an image like a star next to the comment, just to make it stand out from the other comments. And you could do the same by using this plug in. What is plugging doors is this. It doesn't do the actual style in itself. What it does is when you insult and activated, you'll have the opportunity off either making a comment, featured or buried. Now the Pinna which one? You choose this portable, then go on to attach either a featured class. It featured CSS class or a buried CSS class to that particular comment. So unfortunately, if you're not familiar with CSS, you might not be able to make use of this plug in. If you do have a basic understanding off houses walks, then you should be able to use this plug in. So I have already installed and activated it. There are no sentence involved at all. When you do the same, simply come down here to your comments and then in here, you can see we now have a Futural and a very option. So I am going to make the top comment here. Featured, Okay, and then I'll go ahead and let's see. I'm gonna go ahead and bury this committee that say is this is completely fouls and subjective So I will bury this comment. So we now have one comment. It's featured and on Clement has been buried. So what I'm gonna do right now is to bring in fire. Fox. Let's bring that in here. Let's were first his page and now let's see. So you can see right now that they command we buried from angry soccer fans still looks the same, and also the commenter we featured from Gap McCourty still looks the same as well. But if I inspect my element, you can know, See that we have the class off featured forgot. My court is comment. So what I can do right now is to simply clicking here. And then I could say something like, Let's add for the class or featured Let's make the background call a Let's make it Ah, something like black and how you can say it's black. And then I could say that the ah comments inside the featured class. So let's say something like featured and then p Let's make that Ah, color it here is white and now you can see there. We have successfully highlighted the coming by God McCourty And now for the comment by angry soccer fan. Let's also inspect this. That's bring our fire book. And here you can see we have the class off buried in here, as you can see. So what I can do here is just to give the class of buried let's go with buried, and then I could give it a background Coehlo off. Add as an example Now I know, of course, that this doesn't really look a great you can use better colors and ah, better still in off a Well, I just want to show you they process how you would be able Teoh. I'm highlight your featured and buried comments. So that's it for the plug in. Thank you so much fortune. And actually, before I go, let me also mention that if you come down here to your parents and then widgets, you will see the featured comments Tabin him. As also, you can also show the figured comments on your sidebar. By making yourself this, we get simply, click and then drag it in here. And then you can select the number off featured comments you wanted to show in your sidebar . So that's it for the future comments. Plug in. Thank you for watching. I will see you in the next class. 29. Formidable Forms: okey dokey. So the next plug in on our list is the formidable forms plug in. And it is by stiff wills, FL Wills and Jimmy Walling. And this is a very popular form builder with over $300,000 already, and they do have a pro version as well. That has more features, of course, but we're going to be talking about the free vision, and we will see if you have the features available with the pull version. Now, when you download and install the plug in, you will see forms right here. Let's first of all, calm down here to the add ons. These are the Adams that you can add to your forms that walk with the form builder. You have the formidable pool, which is, of course, the prohibition of the plug in. You have milk chimps try PayPal and all the Adams as well, so this is a fairly robust plugging the walks with many other third party plug ins. Let's come down here to our global settings, so in here we can load the form styling on every page, all all the inapplicable pages, or simply not use the form Stellan at all we're going to use only on applicable pages are you can set your user permissions in here for different roles and, of course, for captures. Well, if you've signed up for an account with the capture, you can add your side key and secret key in here. And you can also change the default messages in here as well. And you can set a preview page for your forms. In this case, let's go with Ah, I have duplicates of the contact page in Contact Page in here. Okay, we'll just go with the our contact page. Let's use it. That's the preview. Let's update our options. So in here we also have imports and exports where you can import files fuel from another form. You can also export your own forms as well, and you have the expert from out of either XML or see SV. You can export Cole forms or the entries as well. And of course, we have styles, and this is one of the strongest features off this plug in the fact that it gives you almost complete control on how you want to display your forms and the fields. As an example, you have the former title in hands you can see. So as an example for General I consent out of form on the page. I can choose the and Lemon from left to light as an example, and he cannot see the life preview how it's going to look like this looks very odd. Let me changes back to left. You can change the front, the fun family in here change the direction as well. Let's see, for the feel description, you can see you have a field of a that say's. This is a field with a description. So as an example, I can change the style to italic and maybe, and you can see. Right now you can see the life people already. How is going to look like with italic style? Let's change that back so you can do the same thing to for the field. Callers to fuel satins, checkbooks and radio feels the buttons and also the former messages as well. You have the colors for its successful form submission and ever as well, which is in red and pink by default and for the buttons. Also, you have the Stelling for the default states, the hover state, the click states and much more. So feel free to play around with all the options and here and our style, your perfect form. I was gonna go ahead and save our style, Andrews. Of course, we haven't submitted any forms yet, so this is empty. So now let's go to the foams itself. Now, unlike the content from seven, that creates a default from for us. These plugging doesn't do that. What does begin does dough is that it creates a tempered force, which is the contact was template. So we can preview this right here and you can see it's a pretty decent form. What we're gonna do is to create our own custom form slime. Just go ahead and close this. Let's no go ahead and add a new form. Now, one thing I've noticed about this plug in, which is a little bit of an issue and you might experience a symptom is this When you click to quit in new form, if you click on forms again, you will end up seeing three drafts. Now, I don't know why the plug in does is have tried looking up something commendation to see if there's any problem. Maybe it's my theme, but I wasn't able to find anything. So I'm just letting you know that it's possible that when you install this plug in and you try quitting the new form, it will automatically create three drafts for every new from that you want to create. So don't worry if you send the same thing. Okay, it's it's I guess that's how the plug in the works it's no big deal. The forms still walk, so just let you know. OK, so that you don't worry. Let's just go ahead and edits number eight. All right, so in here we have a title so we can add That's a contact the team. So he did the team. All right, so in here we can help begin to drag our feels from the right into a form builder, so they've drugged a single line text. First of all, let's change the label to name. We can add a description, and of course, we also have the field options in here. We can make it required as an example, you can add RCs is glasses and make it also changed the level position. Let's go with in line. We can also set a field size and set a maximum number of characters for the field. Well, just updates the form. Now let's add the email address. Let's do that. That's also make this required, but that would quiet. That's close. This. Let's add another field for the message. So let's go The paragraph text job that in there we'll change the liberal Teoh something like your message message. And that's also making required. So click the job done aval make it required. And I think that should be okay. I think this is fine. We have the name email address. And then, of course, the message is, let's just update our form. And now we can preview the form by clicking in here. Let's go to a blank page. Okay, contact the team name email, address your message. Okay, That sounds reasonable enough. And of course, they have other fuels in here, which unfortunately are only available. But the pro version of the plug in you can say they do have some pretty interesting fields in here, like password are acquitted card dynamic field scale and are much more So what we're gonna do is just to update the form Once again, let's not try to add the form to our page. So I'm gonna come in here and at a new page. Let's just say contact the team and can see we have the bottom here for the forms that's select our former. Just contact the team. Why not go to display the title of description Will just and said that into the post. And let's go ahead and publish the page. Let's view a page and there you go. So now we've quitted the form called the contact the team form. Well, let's go back to the back and then see what else we could do. All right, so now we have the publish division, which is contact the team. Let's edit this. So now in here, we have the general sentence for this particular form where you can do the same old things , which I'm sure you have gotten used to by now on so many. What happens? Do you show a message or do you reader to your bill or show pitch content? These are available with the co vision of the plug in should they form with the confirmation message. Okay, Ajax do want to load and save it from builder with Ajax. Yes, we can do that. Are the style template? Always use a default, or do you want to use the formidable style? Let's use the formidable style. The submit button text will live that on submit and, of course, the messages. When you submit a form, US monsters were successfully so much and thank you can change that to whatever you want to change it to. We have the entries, which, of course, whenever anyone submits a form, this is where you would see all the injuries. Let's go back to settings. I forgot about the form actions we do have from actions as well. Where, of course, you can customize the email notification whenever anyone. Some. It's a form. You can add the admin email in here. This will be the email that will receive the notification and time anyone feels the contact form. And of course, you can customize how the from is going to look like in here now for the provision you can create, although actions for whenever anyone quits that post whenever anyone registers on your website whenever anyone wants to has made a payment mill Chambers will and then twill Oh, and high y. So the pro vision definitely has a lot more features than the than the free vision, Of course. Oh, this might be something you might want to consider gets in. If, of course, you are interested in all these additional options and features that comes with the ah poor vision of the plug in. So that's generally it for the formidable forms, plug in it is quite similar to gravity forms, but in my humble opinion, I think where the forms is a better plugging than this one. So if you're going to go with a pro vision of fumbled a plug in, I would always recommend going with gravity forms. But let's take a look at the pro version, how much the price and is and you can see it's $49. It's more expensive than gravity forms, and, um, in all honesty, I recommend you going for growth that forms of supposed to are formidable forms, but it's up to you. If you prefer from Google forms, go for it. So that's it for the formidable forms. Plug in Thank you for watching, and as usual, I will see you next class 30. Forty Four 404 Plugin for WordPress: I'm pretty sure you know what a 44 page is now.

Gallery by Envira: the next gallery plug in on a list is gallery by in Vieira, and this is a plug in buy thermals, Griffin and Save balky, and he can also quit galleries using this particular plug in. Now, the major difference between the in Vera Gallery Plug in and the full gallery plug in is the fact that while the Envy replicant is faster in general than the food Galati plugging the footballer, plugging those have more features available, then the imperial plug in. So it's really depends on what it is that you're looking for, However, Please take note that this gallery by and we're plugging. We're talking about the free version here and not the pull vision. The pro vision naturally has more features available so you can take a look at the pro version, however, but the free version compared to the free full gallery plug, and I believe that overall, the frugally plug in does have more features available. But the gullible replicant is faster, so they look all right now. Once you install and you activate the plug in you. Is that the timing here that says in View a gallery, simply click on add new to Kuwait Gallery. I'm just go ahead and add a title living Say that's going to be Ah, soccer 2017 Now in here, we can upload our files. You have the option off uploading your fells directly from the media library, all from a deck stop, all with the pro version, though you can upload your images directly from Instagram. Let's go back here. Let's click on select files from other sources and then just take this images directly from my media library. I know that the full size here is set to full, decisive, beautiful. Rather, I mean sit that into my gallery. And from here I can change the positions of the individual images by simply clicking and Dragon. And I can also edit each individual image by changing the title. The old text or the You are ill as well, I said. That's up for the images. Let's go to config Now. Here we can determine how many columns will want to use for our gallery. You can either choose automatic. We had the plague enabled by itself. Sort out how many images will occupy it. Roll, or you can go with a specific column layout you can either choose one column, two columns all the way down here to six columns now dependent on what you choose in here. It's automatic or any off the column options. The settings billable automatically changes you can see for automatic we have are the automatic layout will hide and other things as well. If I change this to, let's say, three columns now, you can see that the options have changed to it. So it really depends on what you choose in here. I typically like automatic this way that blogging can take care of the, you know, sort it out for me all by its own. Let's change the automatically out Wilhite from 1 52 let's say 300. Let's make that bigger. And for the image size, you can either go with the default size or simply choose any one of the other pretty find sizes in here. I'll stick with the default size, and you can also choose to crop the individual images as well. But I'll leave that unchecked. Let's go to a light box with this plugging. It can also enable lightbox for the A gala Be will enable that lived it as it is, and we can also choose the image size for the lead books view. We have the default says, which is also the full size off the actual image. And then, of course, the caption position as well you can go. It flowed, flowed way up inside, outside, over whatever you like. Now, unfortunately, the mobile video social tags and pagination settings are only available with the pro vision of the plug in. So finally we have Mr Lanyards, where you can add custom gallery title and slog for internal purposes only. I have never used these options before. If you're walking with CSS, you can add your declarations inside this box. Just go ahead and publish. Ah, gallery sucker 2017. Now, once you publish a gallery, you will see the shot colds in here that you can use So we have. The short code is in the I D. And then the really short code. Using the slug. However, we can also directly just add the galleries from our pages. Like any of for example, you can see we have the booking that say's add gallery. Let me click there and let me just choose, circa 2017 Insert that Let me add a title. Cold is, let's say, soccer 2017. Let me change the template to fool with on the go ahead and publish the page. And let's take a look at what we have If you page and here you go, that's is gallery. Very, very, very, very nice. I like it. All right, Let's go back and change the how configuration and it. All right, let's go back to configure. Let's change the number of gallery claims from automatic to Let's say, Let's go with three columns. Okay, now for the family have based available, you can choose the space in between the columns and then the margin below each image as well for the image size. Let's change this to, let's say, 300 by 300 And then let's go ahead and updates so we should have three images. Parole. Now let's refresh this, and there you go. So this is the three column layout, so that's it for the gallery by NVIDIA Plugging It is definitely faster and more lightweight than the food Gharbia plug in, but it doesn't have quite as many features available. So again, it really depends on what you're looking for. Thank you. Fortunate video. And as always, I will see you in the next class. 32. Google Maps Widget Plugin: an excellent plug in for this plane. Google Maps and Your Sidebar and the widget is the Google Maps, which have plugging by Web factory. Now they do have a prove vision. That off course has more features than the free version, but the free version is still Ah, pretty useful Plug in. Now, before you can use the plug it, you need to generate an AP a key. So unless you installed a plug in, you come down his a Google Maps widgets, you'll be asked to provide an A P I key. They do have a Lincoln here they can click on. This is basically the page that you will see, and it's very, very easy to create an A P I key. It's not complicated at all. It's nice to get to a P I key. Just come in here and paste. That's I'm going to test my p I key and OK, the a p I key is okay. Let's go ahead now and save our settings. All right, Cool. So the key has now been saved, so we can now use the widget. So I'm gonna go ahead to my appearance, come down here to widgets. And from here I'm going to drag the Google Maps, which has just been, if the search widget all right for the title, I'm going to say, Ah, locate us for the address I'm going to pay 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue now in here, we have settings for the thumbnail map, which is the actual map that will see in the sidebar. We have the map size. We have the map type. They can choose different options from options. For the calls came zoom level, pain type, collar size label as well. But note that's all this sentence they have. Limited options, like an example, would be the pain type. You can either use the one pretty fine by Google or use your own custom image. While the pro vision has access to more than 1500 pins available, the pink alive as well. You have a little bit of a variety of colors, but the provision offers on limited color choices. Now we could link the image to an interactive map the map data to an interactive map in a light box, all giggling the map to a custom. You are ill or simply disabled. The link altogether for the image for much. Unfortunately, we are limited to just one option, which is the eight bit. While the provisioned has form or image, formats are similar map language as well only English, which is fine. We can show appreciation because this is a free, fantastic plug in. So let's do that. They could also add text above the map or below the map if you wanted to. Let's save this now because we've set the Link Option two and an interactive map in a lead box. We can configure how the map would look like when it's clicked by simply clicking here on interactive map. And in here you could make changes to how the map would look like once it's been clicked on . We have the size. The map mode is well enough type zoom level led books, skin and all the options available in here as well. For the Peens shut called. Unfortunately, these are only available with the pro vision of the plug in. They do have it have been here, for it was supportive. Ever run into any trouble using the plug in? Let's save this And now let's take a look at what we have in the front end, locate us and here we have our map. Then we click in there. You can see this is our lightbox showing up. Okay, let's change one thing here. Let's go back to the interactive map. Let's change the lightbox skin from light to dark. Let's save this. Let's go back. Let's refresh the page. Let's click again and there you go. So that's the dark thin, which I kind of prefer. So that's how to display maps in your sidebar using the Google maps. Bridget plug in. Like I said several times in the video ready. They do have a pro version that has a lot more features available. So if you're interested, you could always look that up. Thank you for watching. I will see you at the next class. 33. Intuitive Custom Post Order: if you're looking for your plugging, that would allow you to rearrange the order off your posts. Pages in other custom post times and taxonomy is as well, Then I would recommend the intuitive custom post or the plug in by a jury. Now this plug. It hasn't been updated in about a year, but it still works with the little vision of what press. So I would recommend that you can still use the plug in when you install it. You will come down here to your settings. You will see intuitive CPO. And now in here you can choose the post steps that you like to be ableto order using the plug in.

Add this and this is a pretty useful plug in for getting people to share your content on their social media platforms. And you could also walk with analytics with this plug in, and it is by several people are from a Brahms s, them switches and some other people whose names I can't pronounce. But it is a pretty useful plug in, so let's see how we can make use off it. I have installed and activated it. And then when he did the same, come down here to your settings and you'll see shit buttons by. Add this. Let's go over there. And first off, we can either add the shake mountains above a content or below our content, and both have the same options. Let's just go ahead and enable the share buttons below our content. Enough, I'm here. We can choose the styling for the share Aiken's Let's just go down here. Two options, and now in here we can decide where we would like to show the the icons. Let's just show them on that posts only. Let's do there, Let's go back to style, and now in here, we can either decide toe allow the plug in to alter, personalize the icons all we can do so on our own. And when you do that, you can delete the buttons in here. And you can also add icons from this pool simply by dragging and dropping. And then you can also be arranged the opposition off each individual icon. All right now, we can also enable the sharing side bottled up here, either to the left of your website or to the right. Let's enable that that switch that to the light and then on the options, we can decide where we would like to display the sidebar again. Let's do that. Only full posts. The more importance to display five. That's fine. We have different kinds of themes they can choose from. Let's just go with the dark theme for now. And finally we have the mobile showing toolbar, which you can enable as well so that the toolbar would appear for mobile devices. But it's also responsive, and you can choose the position in the bottom or top. We have the options in here as well again to determine where you would like to display the toolbar again. Let's just go with the posts and any contrition. Number of buttons and then. But I'm not sure to show the share counts. And finally, did you find this bugging useful? Yes or not. Really, We'll leave that for you to decide. And in here we can preview how it's going to look like. So this is a post. Let's come all the way down here and ah hopes we actually need to save changes first. Excuse me, Let's say the changes, and I think we should be able to preview it. Now. Let's do that. Let's click on a post. Okay? And now in he can see we have share Aikens and to the way we have our floating bar. A swell Awesome. Let's go back all the way up here where we have the advanced options. Now this is where you can track. How will people are sharing your content on social media?

And when you hover over the question Max, they will explain to you better what this thing's actually do. I'm going to select the address bar shares and click backs. And now in here we have the display options. You can choose the answer Kunis loading, which by default, has actually been chosen. Or you can choose to disable this loaded. Now, what this means here is this and sequins loading means that before the social media icons are shown, the content of your block post will be shown first before the I conception. And I think that makes perfect sense because people don't come to your side to share your content. Necessarily. They come to your side because they want to read your content. So if you on check this, what happens here is that your contents would not display until you upset lords, your icons, which doesn't make sense to me. So let's just keep this as it is. You all also have the option of being able to choose what particular post should have. The share icons or not by default we have the option has been ticked already. So what this means is, if I go to my posts, let's edit one of them in here. You can see we have the option off either alarming to share buttons on this particular post or not, which I think is a very, very interesting feature which I haven't seen yet on any other social media.

And would purse is page buildup by sight origin. And this Blufgan is by Greg Pre Day and Bram Jenness. And as you can see, it already has over a 1,000,000 downloads already end. One of the main reasons why this is such a popular plug in is because it is absolutely free to use. And not only is it free, it's actually a very powerful plug in for building out pages. Now, in addition to install in the plug in the pitch buildup Logan by side origin, how do recommend that you also installed these side origin widgets, bottle plugging as well? This is a complementary plugging that provides additional modules or widgets as they're called and said Origin, with which you can build out really good looking pages. But it's like your image widget, your video widget, Google maps, budget and so on and so forth. Now I do have two videos on YouTube demonstrating how to use this powerful plug in to build out a full one page website. So if you're interested in learning more about the plug in ultra command, you take a look. However, lenders give you a very quick overview off how the plug in works. When you're installing, you activate the plug in and they're trying to create a new page. You will see the page build a tab in here just like the beaver buildup you click in there and now in here, you have access to the back and edit all for the site origin plug in. So from here, I can add my role and what's different and what I really like about the column. Our structure for site origin is that it has more, far more flexibility when it comes to you choosing the with off the individual columns in the right. Now I can simply click and drag and be very, very specific with the withs off my columns is against. Right now I have the very first column. He has a with off 34.8% while the second has with off 65.2%. I really don't know off any other pickle that plugging that provides as much flexibility when it comes to choosing the with all of your columns. Of course, you can increase in the buff columns in here as well as much as you want. Let's stick with three columns. Let me insert that. So for the very first column right now, I can add a widget. And now, anyway, I have access to all the widgets that came with my theme with what Prison? Also with other plug ins that I might have installed. I do have They said, origin Are widgets in here like this? Said Origin it. It'll which I can click. And now I can click on edit and then in here I can simply pay some content, which I'm going to do so it now and it can add a title like Let's isn't like Hello world and, of course, to the right, I do have my attributes available. The layouts, bacon add padding. And, of course, I can also add some design, like back on Coehlo and images in here and he had done for the second column. Let's add another ah widget, and this time around I can add a button as an example. I'm going to click on edit now Inherit can add my bottom texts, something like, Let's say by now I can add my destination, your l and of course I can choose my design and layout and add of the vegetables like S E O button ideas and classes as well. Let me hit, Done. And for the very last column, let's add another widget. And in this case, I am going to add a set origin image widget. Let's click on edits. I'm going to choose my media, and in this case, I'll just choose Times Square from New York. And of course, we can choose if the size of the image Let's go with medium large, not medium ahead. Actually, let's go with the medium 303 100. Ah, let's hit done. And now you can see we have, although three columns from here right now, we can actually even click on the life, and it's all in here, and we can actually see how the page is going to look like on the front end. As we make changes to the editor, let me hit done to go back in here. And so, basically, just like any other page buildup, Logan, you can create multiple rows. Add columns are you can change the position of the clones by simply clicking and Dragon and Jen dropping them you can duplicate your combs. You can duplicate your rose when I really like, though about the said origin plug in is the task about 4 p.m. They do have a Len Barton they can click on, and you can get some tips on how to use the pitch. Build a plug in from the developers themselves, but you also have a history Barton in here, where you can on do any changes that you've made to the page. You can see how follow it is very, very useful feature. You also have access to the Get Adams in here, the button where you can get premium Adan's Let's open this in a new tab. So if you're interested, they do have a premium Adams that you can get for feet and I believe is just $29. But you can get them that you have feels for pilots. Sliders. Custom post I build, adds Ajax comments, social rejects, block animations and much more so you can take a look at these. If you're interested, I handle recommend them. But now let's talk about one of the features of this plug in that makes it really, really popular. And that is the fact that, unlike the beaver buildup, plugging where you have to have the premium version before you can get access to the templates. This plug and provide you with several temples which you can use simply click on layouts in here and now. From here you have access to all this templates which you can use on your site. They do have a second page in here we can choose so more so All you would have to do is to simply click on but have attempted to like in this case, let me go with the one with the the the girl and now down him gonna click on insert and then you can choose to insert the template before whatever content you've really added on your page after the content or simply replacing existing continent already exists on your site, I'm going to click on insert after and now if I click on preview in here, we now have the page, my original three columns and hair. But now you can see I have the pre built templates down here. But gill, the small Gilbert, the bag. It's a slider, actually, and then you can see I have the rest of the template in here. So all I would have to do from the back and in here is just to make changes to the images, the content. And I'm good to go now, the layouts themselves and not quite as sophisticated as those you would find the beaver buildup, but they're still pretty good templates with which you can build out some good looking pages. So that's it for the page buildup. Logan by side origin is free, and you have excessive templates, but it's not quite as fast as the beaver pitch builder, but still various we're plugging to have in your arsenal. Don't forget again. I do have two videos on my YouTube channel showing you how to use the plug in to build up a full one. Pedro Upside. Simple search for how to build a one page website is in what press? Part one and power to thank you for watching the video, I will see you at the next class 38. WPLive Chat Support: one of my best plug ins for providing Schatz supporting your WordPress website is the WP life chat support. Plug in It is by WP life Chad Nick Duncan and a few other individuals. Now this is one of my favorite plug ins for chatting because even though there was a free order, there is a provision of the plug in. The free vision is very functional. It's very useful. You can do lots of things with it, and at least for me, it is relatively easy to use compared to many other plug ins for chats out there. Now you install inactivated plugging. You will see live chat, click on Life Chat, and it is likely that you will see another page that say's Something like This is the intro page are click here to begin accepting chat requests on your site when you click to accept chat request. Then this is a likely pitch that you will see over here on the settings. Let's click there. You can see that we have cooperated number off settings in here. So in order to save time, I'm only gonna talk about the most important sentence and ignore the ones that are not really that important. First of all, no general settings we have checked, enabled, absolutely require name and email. Yes, you typically want people to provide their names and email addresses first before they begin chatting with you. This way you can ensure that they're actually serious about chatting with you and they're not robots over here. All the other sentence in here are pretty self explanatory. You can enable Google analytics integration if you wanted to. But in here we have the question, What type of environment are you on? And it's a Z on Lee. Change these settings if you were experiencing performance issues now let me, first of all point out that whenever you install a plug in for chatting on the website, there is a possibility that this speed off your upside might drop just a little bit. That is very, very normal, because plug ins for Chechen can be heavyweight sometimes, and they really could slow down your side just a little bit. The change in dispute, however, should not be severe. It shouldn't be like, for example, it used to take two seconds for your website to load, and now it takes six seconds. It shouldn't be something that drastic. If it is, you might want to come in here and change some of this sentence in here. However, it will be best if you contacted your post first before changing anything in here. And if you have a Web developer or someone who has more experience than you, it will be better if they to care off the sentence in here. Let's go down to the chat box. This is the actual books for chatting. Are you confused? The alignment, although bottom light is the default position on most websites, and it is, we also recommend you keep the Children do in. You can enable an auto pop up, but I think that's going to quite annoying. Typically, if someone was going to want to chat with you, they should be the ones to initiate the chat and not through a pop up. I don't think I like that. You can display the name and avatar. Can you check messages and the other options in here also pretty self explanatory. You can redirect a user once the chatters ended to a specific. You are well by simply adding the UML in here and then taking this box. Let's take a look at offline messages. Do you want users to send your flame messages? Yes or no? If it's no, simply come in here and check this box. If, however, you open Teoh receiving offline messages, I live the box on checked and you can change the default title and text fields in here. And of course, this will be the email address that notifications notifications will be sent to saying, Hey, you had this missed messages. Click it, click it to respond. Stuff like that are We have style in, which is, of course, very selfish. Billitteri. Feel free to change and design the box. The chap window t own taste. Now we have agents, which, unfortunately, bill, you can't add more than one agent with the free vision of the plug in the agents that you have will be the admin or website by default. As you can see to add more agency would need to get the poor vision of the plug in our block Visitors. You can block visitors by simply adding the I P addresses in here. Our surveys if you wanted to be able to create service you can do so in here. We'll talk about service in just a minute. And then, of course, we have dogs. Suggestions rest ap I better features and custom scripts. Which, of course, you can add your custom CSS in here and custom. J s no surveys. There is a service called Nimble Squirrel. That's upon us in a new tab. This is it in here. You would have to create an account with them if you wanted to be able to create surveys. And, of course, when you do that, simply come back down here to your settings and in here for service. You can now begin to customize how you want to display of the surveys. History is there. You will see all the chance that you've had in the past. Your miss chances. Well, if anyone sends you a message when you're Flannery, mister, you missed. You will see that in here as well. You have your offline messages here as well. And then, of course, there is fit back. If you wanted to provide some feedback or some suggestions to the developers of the plug and simply come in here and typing a feedback and then send it to them. They do have support as well. But you can read more on how to make use of the plug in. They have documentation, and they also have articles for troubleshooting. They do have extensions also, that you can incorporate with the plug in, thereby boosting the functionality of the plug in even more. They have slack notifications. As an example, you can come in here and click free and that this will show you the free extensions that you can add if you are interested. All right, cool. So how exactly does the plug any work? How do we receive messages and how do you respond to messages? Now, I am going to open up the web site here in a separate window and fire Fox. And as you can see right now, I have opened up the website. This is a private winner. And Firefox, this is the window. It here for chatting. Let me get click here, Okay? And what I'm gonna do right now is to come here in the back end. Goto life chat. Now this is the window that must always be open enough for you to see who's on your side and who's trying to chat with you, and you can see right now it saves one visto online. It tells us the person's browser and also the peasants I p address. We cannot initiate chats. Unfortunately, with the free version on Lee, the profession would allow us to in shit, shots, blood. Say how this works. I'm gonna come in here right now. I'm going to add my name as Ted and let me add a very interesting intell address in here, Ted. 123 com. Something crazy like that. All right, let's start a chat. I know you can see the visuals name. It's Ted down here. It's pending. Now we can accept the chat. Okay. All right. So now we have chatting with Ted. Let me, First of all, being back in my Mozilla window. Okay, let's say hi. Okay, So that's Tetteh said hi to us, and now they're going to say hi, Ted. Okay. And now you can see that it has got in. Hi, Ted. And then I instead will say, Can you help me enter? And now we're here in the back end. We have seen the message. Can you help me? And then we say, Yes, we can president back. And then Ted gets the message, and that's how it actually works. Awesome. Awesome, Awesome. Sold. This is the winter that always has to be open enough for me to accept new request neutral requests and to see who is actually online. You should also hear some sort off a bell whenever anyone is trying to reach out to you. And this window is not open. You should hear something like It's like a Bill Lincoln. Um, something like that. So that's it for the WP live chat support Plug in. Thank you so much for watching the video. I will see you in the next last. 39. Cyclone Slider : the next plug in on the list is the Cyclones later to plug in. By course, cynics and Mr Colson excised that this is an easy to use and customizable slideshow plug in for both casual users and expert developers. So let's take a look at how we can configure all and make use of this plug in. When you install inactivated, you will see seconds later in here, click on Settings. Now in here, we can choose where we would like to load the scripts from You Have the footer and you have the header. I would always recommend loading your scripts in the Footer. Now you have scripts. A script basically Selves a very specific function. As an example, you have the very 1st 1 head that say's This is the core script needed by the plug in. So at all times, the very first box. They should always be checked, however, take a look at the second scoop, it say's Cara soul used by these templates. Galleria Leah Endorse. You have swiped for touch swept events. You have tile used for title two incision effects, and finally, you have video used by the YouTube template. My recommendation to you is this unless you plan on using all these templates and effects on, check those boxes as an example, I'm going to check Carol Soul of your check swipe, and I will on Chek Tile. I'll keep video and the main course script This way. My blood will load faster and my website a lot faster. As a result, the fewer scripts you load, the faster your plug in will function for the Lord and priority our recommend you living at 100. You also have templates. You have dark default standard anthem mills. We'll live all for checked. For now. Let's save options. Let's go ahead and add a slight show. Let's go ahead and create the regular characters. Slide show Now in here could either add a slide. We'll go straight to add images as slides. If you click on add slide, you can choose an image. You have YouTube, you have them. You you have a custom HTML and you have your testimonials as well. Let's first of all, Lord an image. So click image. Let's get the image and let's go with Let's see, who do we go with? Let's go with a little Cup. Add to this line Notice what you can add. A caption. I will go with the Global Cup and for the description living. Just copy some text in here. Let's pace that. We can add links as well, but can add image attributes like the alternate text and tackle text for S your purposes. Now the interesting thing about this plug in is that you can actually add specific transitions to each slide on, like most other slider plug ins, where you have to choose one particular transfer in effect for the entire our slideshow, so inhale it's enable the transition effect, and we will choose. Let's go with school horizontally. You can also add the effects, speed and slight delay in here. If you want to. This is. Go ahead and add another slide. We'll go with another image again. This time, let's go with the Terminator at the slide. Let me add my caption. It will add my description and I'll jump Street. It's like transient effects. Let's enable this and for the affected selfless choose scroll horizontally. Let's click in him and then finally, let's add a video YouTube video this time around. So for the u R l I am going to copy a girl in here, and I'll pace that. You'll sensitivity. You also see the video Now. You also have this book say that say's ah, do not show suggested videos when video finishes. And I think that's a very good idea. So let's do that. Okay, so now we have two images, lives and a video slide. Down here is where we have the templates. You can choose standard default talk of thumbnails. Let's go ahead and choose dark for now. But you can also cities supported slights. We have the Vega image. You have your YouTube, you have your video html and then testimonials. So be careful which particular template you choose. Not all of them support every single are kind off data. Let's go ahead and publish. Ah, slide. And now you can see we have our short code in here. But you can also see the preview. In here, you can see Robocop, you have the Terminator, and then we have our video, which is the Logan trailer. Over here you have the basic sentence where you can change the mansion effects, the with hide and all that stuff he can also have a responsive with management or go full or fixed. All this will depend on how you choose to display your slides. You have the description in here responsive recesses to smaller size, but maximum with will be equal to the provided with. And then you have the description for full and fixed. It really depends on you what it is that you're looking for with your slides. Now we sized images. You can resize images to fit this specific dimension. So if for some reason you have images of a very large but you're trying to cram them into a slide that's very small, you can resized images in here or simply go ahead and force every size was forcing every size doors is that the program will automatically be create eight new sizes for each of the images that you upload to your slideshow. In this case, I'm just gonna go with No, let's not do any of this size in And of course, you have additional sentence in here. You can change to your own taste. Let's go ahead and updates. Now what I'm gonna do is to go to my pages and let's go to our slides page, and from here I am going to paste the short code. Let's go ahead and dates. And now let's view the page. And there you go. That's our slide with the doc template, as you can see, and we have our YouTube video, which unfortunately doesn't occupy the full height off the slide show. I have tried saying how we can get the YouTube video to fit in the entire height of the slide show, but I haven't been able to find any solution to that. So if you are able to figure out how you can get YouTube videos to play to have the full height of the slides, please let me know. But this will look a lot better in your side ball you can display. You're slight in the state, boxing about coming in here to your appearance, go to the widgets, and then you'll see the cycles. Little Bridget in here, click and drag. Job that in here and in select your carcass lighter, safe. And now let's view sidebar. And there you can see we have the slighter in there and you can see the you tube video actually looking a lot better than it does in our main content area. So one thing you could do, though to accommodate this discrepancy in the height is too. Reduce the overall height off your slideshow. So basically, you will do that by coming back here to your second Slater. Now let's any of the characters slide show and then in here you would reduce the high tree to go with, Let's say, 250 for the with. We could make it a lot smaller. Let's go with 600 as an example, let's update. Let's even change the temperature. Zero from Doc to Let's go with standard OK and see how that looks like. Let's update now let's go back. Let's refresh the page. So this is standard, as you can see, and now you can see the You tube video now has the full height. So that's one way how you could try compensating for the like for the discrepancy in the height of the YouTube video. So that's it for the cyclone slider to plug, and they do have a pro version, of course, that has more features. You can see them in here. You can wrap up your slides. You have the ease. In effect. You have six besides options and more small. So that's it for the blood. And thank you for watching the video. I will see you in the next class. 40.

Let's come down here to the corn settings Now if you don't know what the crown job is, a contract. Basically, yes, this it's like you telling your Web server to do something for you at a given time. So you could say, OK, Web Server, I want you to send out an email to my subscribers every Monday at 8 a.m. Okay, you could also go further and say OK, send out an email every Monday at 8 a.m. Every Wednesday at five PM and every Friday at 10 p.m. You can do things like that using something called a Cron job.

You might need to contact your Web hosts for help with this. Let's come down now here, two news letters. But before we even talk about news that there's or post notifications, let's take a look at our subscribers. Now you will notice that we actually have to. Subscribers already created force. Now, you may be wondering whether just to come from Well, the plug in automatically creates to subscribers for you. Whenever you install the plug in one will be the email address associated with your website , and then we have a sample Immel address. You can see a good example at example dot calm so we have to email addresses. Now, let's try to get 1/3 email address. So what I'm gonna do is this Okay, I'm gonna come down here to my appearance, go to the widgets. Now you will see we have an email subscribers widget. I'm gonna drag this, trump this in my light side ball and let's just say for the title subscribe, display the name field. Yes, we can add a short description saying Subscribe. Teoh Malin Male in List and then for the subscriber group. We have public will talk about this in just a second public. Let's save this. Now let's take a look. And how you can see we have the subscribe button in his. I'm just gonna say, Ah, Bob is my name, and this is my email address. Subscribed me to your list. Let's hit. Subscribe, and it stays. Your subscription will successful within a few minutes. Can you check the mail in your inbox? So what I'm gonna do right now is to bring in my Gmail account. And there you go. So it's a UFO blogger. Confirm subscription. Hi, Bob. Hey, newsletter subscription requests from this similar just was received. Please confirm it by clicking here. Let's do that. And I would say is, thank you. You have been successfully so scribed to on news letter. Okay, now, in here in the back. And if we come back down here, Teoh subscribers list, you can see that we now have only Alex Fortunate Jamil and his name is Bob. And the same group is the public group. So if you wanted a different group as opposed to the public default group, you can simply use the name of the group. Whenever you're setting up your how we get in here, you can simply come down here and add a different name in here instead of supposed to public. Okay, so now we have three subscribers. Okay, Now we have something here called Composed like basically, by default, you consent to different types off e mails to your subscribers. You can send out an email saying, Hey, we've published a new post. Check it out here or you can send out a regular weekly news letter. Now the 1st 2 templates. They are very similar. Therefore, post notifications. If you click preview in either one off them, you can see inherit SEZs. Hello. And then the person's email address. We have published a new blogger on our website. Here is the post title you may receive. You may view the littlest post at the post link Thanks and regards at mean. So I can come in here and edit this template and then simply change the default texting him and then I use my own text. Let's go back here Now. We have the template also for the regular news letter so they can come in here and edit this as well. We can change a subject to say something like New Weekly that just a weekly weekly newsletter instead. But other weekly world. So we have a weekly newsletter, and then we have the message in here so we can come in here and then type in whatever new mail we want to send out all we can simply create a new email altogether. Lenders, come in here and save this. Let me add in new template so you can see we can choose either for posting syndications or newsletters. We'll stick with newsletters. Now for this subject. I'm just gonna say new puts out this week. So, for example, imagine I sold products and every new week I released new product. Second, you simply use this template in here. Then they can see we have. I'm sorry. We have published some new products. Check it out on ah website. I think I conceive this. So now I have to separate templates for send out weekly newsletters. I can either use the default will be clean newsletter coming him and then edit the message . Or I can simply come in here and also choose the new products out this week template and then add whatever new text I want to. That's it for compose. We now have posted notifications as well. So whenever you publish a new post this plugging by default, we send out an email to your software was dependent on the temperature you've chosen. So now in here, we have the default you post published. You can call me coming in and edit this, and then you can see we have the group we have public. If you had another group, you could choose that in. Here we have this select instigation Mills subject. We have new post published or poor sense indication. We'll stick with New Post published and now these are all my post categories, so you can either choose to have your subscribers identified whenever you publish any post from any of your categories, or simply choose the specific categories that you want your subscribers to be notified off whenever you release a new post. If you had custom pool steps, which is that in him as well? And then, of course, you can either choose to send out the notification immediately whenever you publish a new posts or simply added to a Cron job instead, or simply the civil identification all together. Let's save that. And let's not come down to news. Let s o if you want to send out in usually that to your subscribers, you will now come down hitting newsletters. So in here for the mill subject, I'm going to choose the new puts out this week. Okay, for the mill type walls, go with the send mill immediately and and for the group, we're gonna go with public the click outside. So now we say we have three recipe. And so if I click, send email. Now it's going to send out the template containing three new puts out this week. So let's send the email and that it says, Have you double checked your selected group? Yes, let's go ahead. And there you go. So the mail has been sent. So let's see now if we actually go that in our G mail and you go so you can see we now have the title. New puts out this week.

It is a very effective plug. Informative. Fine. Your subscribers. Whenever you've published a new post, you can send out between these letters as well and also set up corn jobs if you wanted to. So that's it. Thank you for watching the video. Jen. Me at the next level took about the rain maker plugging. Thank you for watching. 41. Event List Plugin: another powerful poor game for this plane. Events in your WordPress website is the event list. Plug in, and it is by me Booth, you and Cronson or however you want to pronounce this. Now what separates plug Inform the events. Calling the plug in is the fact that this plug in relies heavily on the use off short codes . You can display the events on your pages or posts using a short code, and it also comes with a widget with which you could displayed your events in your sidebar . Now my new installed and activated plug and you will see event list in here. Let's start over. Go to settings and in here we have access to the general settings where you can change the text for no events. You have the multiday filter injury it say's that this option defines if the complete range of a multiday events shall be considered in the date filter. Yes, let's do that. They display showed that it only once per day. Okay, and then you can enable html tax for your event field time, and you're eventful location as well. If you want to. Let's save our changes. Move on two different incidents in here. You can change the default text for show details and high details. And if for some reason you wanted to desert Zabel these style sheets that comes with this plug in, you can do so by simply checking these books in here. Let's move on to the admin page settings. Now in here, you can set the display date format. If you're interested in learning more, you have a link in here that will take you to a deep European manual that teaches you about the dates. How formats that you can use on your WordPress website. Let's go into the feet settings. If you are into our assess and you wanted to enable analysis feet for your events, you can do so in here by checking his box. And then you have all the general settings on the RSS in here. Let's save my changes now and go on to the categories. It is very simple. How to critique category to simply come in here and add your category, just like you would at a category for your WordPress posts. You can see already have two categories board meetings and online. There is an option in here that say's that you can sink your even categories with your post categories. Now, be very, very careful whenever you choose this option, because what this does here is this its aim. Its objective is to prevent over the limit. Say its objective is to ensure that your posts and your events used the same categories. So if you come on, come on here and say Okay, yeah, let's let's sink the event categories with the post categories. What's gonna happen here is this. If board meetings and online as an example in here, if I don't have these two s categories for my WordPress posts, this blogging is going to delete these categories. Okay, so be careful whenever you choose to sink your event categories with your post categories. In fact, in most cases are the advice that you don't do so. All right, have a categories. Now we have our events, which I have created five of them. He only seen phone for here because ah, the filter here is said to up comment Appears you can see. But if I changes to show all dates and I hit filter, you can see we now have the month preview, which was on February 1st showing up in here. As you can see, to add a new event is very, very simple. Simply coming here, click on Add New and then you can add the title, the dates, the time, location and the details and then even have categories. You can choose the category in here to the light. Okay, so I've got are five events for upcoming events in one past event. To display the events in our sidebar is pretty easy. Simply come down here to our parents, go to widgets, and now in here you will see the event least which it simply click and drag. Let's drop that in here and in here we can change the title, said specific. Because if you want to, let's set in the movies and events here to, let's say full because also trunk in the event title at location and details as well, basically, trunk it. It means that you set a specific number off characters that should be displayed. So as an example, if I said OK, let's show the event details and then truncated Oezil's too 10 characters in this case right now, all the force 10 characters from the events. Details will be shown as an example. We have where you can add the Uriel to the Link event list. Page will talk about that in just a second, and you could also add links to the single events and add a link to the ventless page as well. Let's save this. Let's go to a sidebar and see how don't look like log. And there you go. We have our four events trained up in here, and our sidebar put in me to write This looks just looks pretty good. All right. Now, how can we display the events on a page or post? We can do so by making use of a short code that showed called is listed in here. It's the event dash list, short code. So let me go ahead and cup of this. But notice that it also says that you can modify the list of events and their style with attributes. All available attributes can be found on the event least about page in the WordPress admin area. We'll talk about that in just a second. Let me go ahead and add a new page Let's make this page, um, meetings was an example. Meetings going to go ahead and paste a short code that's published a page that's view the page. And there you go. We have Armenians all showing up notice, however, that the default is said to up comment. But if I click on all you can see, we now have all the five events showing up, as you can see. Awesome. Now how can we actually modify this page? Weaken? Do so using too short codes and the attributes Like I said to do so, come down here to your event list. Click on about and in here. We have access to all the available actuals that you can use with your short court. Note that this is a general example in here. The shot court event dash list should be on every single short code you can't use other the attributes of and that's list should be in every single shot code. You can't use short codes without the event nationalist actual. This is the most important attributes that calls and the events in the first place. So down here you have an example. They have the event list attributes And then they have another attribute called Number Normal Discourse Events set to 10. This is simply saying that the events to show here should be set to 10 and then show the filter bar is set to false. Okay, now the way this works here is this. We have all the attributes and hair. We have the options, the available options that you can pass to each attribute in the very next column, and then you have the default values off each specific attributes, and then you have the descriptions. So, as an example, we have an attribute here called Initial on the Score Date. The description here say's this actual but specifies which events are initially shown. Remember that on Armenians Page when I refers this page well, let me remove this year. Well here. Let's go to the initial page meetings. Remember that initial pages see are the upcoming events. If I want the changes to the past defence rather than upcoming events, all I would need to do is to copy this attribute right here and then set its value to past . So let's go here to our mittens page. Let's add the attributes after events list and then say equals past, update the page, view the page. And now you can see that the very first meanings that we see are the past events, not upcoming events. As you can see, that's just one example. We have so many other attributes available in here you have to date filter. You have the category filter. As an example, you could display posts or meetings on Lee from specific categories. Let's try this. Let's take the category filter right here and then develop options are all or the category slogs. Okay, let's copy this. Let's go back here. Let's remove the initial date. Actually, that's paste. The attribute cat filter now equals now it say's develops in here. Say's that you consider toe all or the category slogs to get to cut. Agree Sloga, Let's go to categories and now in here you can see the slug is board meetings or online. Let's go with online on Lee. Let's display that. So now they should display the events on Lee from the only category that's updates. And now let's view the page, and now you can see we have the Onley event under the online category, which is the Skype H Q. Meeting, as you can see, so this is how to make use off the attributes and then the values assigned to them. The options available are simply are almost endless. You have the ones for that. The date we can sit with the years months. The date ranges well. The title length shows start time to location, location, length, category details. It's simply it's simply breathtaking what you can do but this pardoning in regards in the short codes, you also have a short code filters in here. Like, for example, let's say you had three different categories for tennis, hockey and winter. You could say, Okay, I only wanna show events with the category off tennis and then also, events were both Haughey and winter are selected. This is how you would do that. You have the example in here, you have the available date for months, and you also have the available date range for months as well. So it is pretty who bossed this plug in when it comes to the shop called Options available . So that's pretty much it for the event list. Plug in. If you have any questions, they do have the F A Q page in here, and they also have a support page where you can ask more questions. Because, like I said, the number of short because that you can use in here are pretty are pretty extensive in my in my humble opinion. So that's it for the event list. Plug in. Thank you for watching the video. I will see you in the next class. 42. Event Tickets: a fantastic complementary plug into the events Kalinda plug in is the event tickets plug in , and it is by the same people who developed the events. Kalinda Plugging now What is blocking doors is that it allows people to reserve tickets on your WordPress website. They can come in, view an event and then reserve tickets for that specific event. Now, when you install and you activate the plug in under the event calendar cities, you will see tickets so you can click in there. And now in. Here is where you can set the general settings for the tickets. You can also use this plug in for your pages and posts, not just your events. You can check posts and pages if you want to. You can also then choose the location or where the form would be by default, it said to below the event details, and then you can. Also a strict of is a vision of tickets to all the people who have are locked into your what pursuits that maybe like members, for example, let's see if that changes. And now let's go ahead to one of our events. Let's take a look at the presidential tour. This looks like like the kind of event that people would want to reserve our tickets for. So down here is where you can create the tickets for this event. So let's was more select an image. Let's use the V I p tickets in here to get hitter. And now I can add a new tickets and I can see to get name here would be, Let's say, Ah V I P tickets as an example, and we can add a short ticket description that just copy some text in here. Let's face that enough with starts. Still, we can say February 3rd 8 a.m. It'll end on Sunday, February 5th at 5 p.m. And we have only 100 tickets available. Let's go ahead and save the tickets. And now let's view this event and see how people can reserve tickets. So all the way down here you get so right now we have the I. R S V P form. So anyone can come in here right now and say, Okay, I want to reserve two tickets. I'm going to add my I'm sorry. Two tickets. I'm going to add my name here as our Bob Prince and then email them. Just use my actual view email address in here, and I'm going. So now I can click a quit from his VP. Okay, so now you can see we now have two hours repeats for this event. View your all is replacing conceded ticket. The ticket counter I did not say is 98 out of 100 available. And now in here on my Gmail You can see I now have the email lowest and saying, OK, here are your tickets for the presidential tour to get number one is to 973 Ticket number two is to 974 to purchase is Bob Prince, and that's my security code. Awesome. Now, to actually sell two tickets, you would need to gain access to the event it gets, plus plugging. This is a plan that would allow you to charge money for the events you can see right. It's a is allows you to add as many tickets as you wish to a given event and sell those tickets entirely within your WordPress site. So again, if you have a very serious upside that deals with events and you want to sell tickets? This would be the plugging for you to use. So thank you for watching the video. I will see you in the next class. 43. Fluid Responsive Slideshow: All right, let's take a look at another excellent plug in for creating slides and know what person upside. And this is the fluid, responsive slideshow. Plug in by toady idea more. How is an Al Zia? And this is a fantastic plug in for creating slides and what perception it is one of my favorite plug ins, and the reason why is because it is very, very responsive. But it also gives you other the flexibility when it comes to creating your slides. You have a lot of room to decide where you want to place your captions, your texture titles, and you can also choose from a variety of different hands off themes and animations that come with the plug in.

Let's go with a Let's see. Let's go with Han Solo. Everyone loves Hansel, right? Let's go with Han Solo. I'm going to add my title in here. Them in hands so low now, in here we can add some text. It could be like a capture or a short description. Whatever. Just gonna go ahead and paste some text in here now in here to the right is where we can begin to customize how this particular slide is going to look like by default to consider textbooks. It said to the left position, we can change their two top left. We can change that to bottom, and we have other options in here as well. Walter. Good bottom for now. Now for the text box with you have the options off. Also either making a text box very long or very now. So it's all up to you. You can see what, two out of $12. It's very, very short. I'm sorry.
