It’s been a bit since the last time I posted about turning WordPress into a CMS. I’ve learned a bit more about WordPress, and some really great plugins have come to my attention. WordPress has evolved a bit, and so have the types of sites I work on here in Benin.
The following plugins have a lot in common. For the most part they are:
- Activate and forget. We configure everything, and the client never even needs to know the plugin’s there.
- Simple to use. In many cases, we’ve sacrificed extensive features for ease of use. Clients don’t need a million different things to worry about—they just want their websites to work.
- Internationalized. Seriously, folks, it’s not that hard. Not all the plugins listed provide translations, but they are all translatable.
