B2B marketing firm shares favorite plugins for developers to manage content in WordPress.

This month, Post Status reported it costs an average of 8 per month to run and manage a simple WordPress website. With this comes many considerations, including the costs of plugins to help manage workflow and increase web development productivity.

“Since creating and editing content with WordPress can be rather quick and painless, a website can grow at an astonishing rate,” explain Jeremy Durant, business principal of Bop Design. “It’s important to have an easy to manage back end to help control the content.”

Below are the top 10 WordPress plugins recommended by Bop Design:

1. Duplicate Post

Many times the end user will need to create a post or page that has the exact same layout and formatting as another page, just different content. The easiest way for to accomplish it would be to “duplicate” or “clone” the post or page and then edit the new copy of the page. Duplicate Post adds a simple and powerful functionality to WordPress.

2. TinyMCE Advanced

Developers should assume the end user to have little to zero knowledge of HTML and CSS when creating a website. However, sometimes the default WordPress content editor isn’t enough for some end users’ needs. Users might need to add multiple horizontal rules or anchor links to many pages, while others could possibly use the subscript or superscript tags often.

The TinyMCE Advanced plugin solves these issues. This plugin adds more options to the default content editor to make editing content even easier.

3. HTML Editor Syntax Highlighter

Unfortunately for some WordPress themes, editing the HTML of the page is the only way to edit the content on the page. The HTML view of the default editor is rather plain and bland looking, making it hard to read and determine if what the user is typing is correct.

HTML Editor Syntax Highlighter plugin adds syntax highlighting and colors to the HTML editor so that code is easier to read and understand. Users who have experience using HTML editors like Dreamweaver will see similarities to code view.

4. Admin Post Navigation

This plugin adds another feature that can be argued should be default in WordPress core. When editing a post/page, the Admin Post Navigation plugin adds buttons in the back end that allow the user to edit the “Previous” or “Next” post/page. So instead of having to go back to the main list of posts/pages to edit the next post/page, it can be done immediately after saving the one you just edited. “Essentially, it’s a huge time saver,” says Durant.

5. Simple Page Ordering

Some WordPress themes and plugins require that the menu order of each page/post be a certain way. Usually an end user would just edit the Menu Order field of a page with the appropriate number to put it in the correct order. “But what if you had to reorder 50 or more pages? Sure you could try to use the quick edit feature but that still isn’t the most optimal solution. The Simple Page Ordering plugin will make re-ordering those pages a breeze with it’s drag and drop interface,” says Durant.

6. Category Order and Taxonomy Terms Order

Very similar to the Simple Page Ordering plugin, but instead the drag and drop interface is used to change the order of blog post categories and custom post type taxonomy terms.

7. Better Internal Link Search

Simply put, the Better Internal Link Search plugin is exactly that. The default WordPress internal search works but isn’t always foolproof. For example, there are times where you want to create a hyperlink to a known page, such as “About Us.” With the default function, it shows up in the bottom of the search results. Why is it at the bottom of the results? “Better Internal Link Search fixes that and makes searching for your content faster and—just like it says—better,” says Durant.

8. Media Library Assistant

“The Media Library Assistant plugin is a must have if the end user’s Media Library contains massive amounts of uploads. By massive, I mean hundreds, if not thousands of uploaded files,” explains Durant.

During a website migration, many images needed to be re-added to multiple posts and pages. Using this plugin, users can search for the exact image file by searching for its exact filename.

9. Post Type Switcher

Using custom post types in WordPress can make life so much easier for the end user. The Post Type Switcher plugin allows the end user to change the post type of the post. For example, a blog post might need to repurposed as a News item or a Press Release post needs to be switched to a new page on the website. This plugin will allow the end user to easily do that.

10. Post List Featured Image

One more simple plugin that one might argue could be part of WordPress core. The Post List Featured Image plugin adds a thumbnail image of the featured image used in posts and pages to the main posts and pages list view. This allows the end user to quickly recognize a blog post or content page by seeing the feature image. It also lets the end user quickly know if a post or page has a featured image or not.

A full-color introduction to the basics of HTML and CSS from the publishers of Wrox! 

Every day, more and more people want to learn some HTML and CSS. Joining the professional web designers and programmers are new audiences who need to know a little bit of code at work (update a content management system or e-commerce store) and those who want to make their personal blogs more attractive. Many books teaching HTML and CSS are dry and only written for those who want to become programmers, which is why this book takes an entirely new approach.

  • Introduces HTML and CSS in a way that makes them accessible to everyone—hobbyists, students, and professionals—and it’s full-color throughout
  • Utilizes information graphics and lifestyle photography to explain the topics in a simple way that is engaging
  • Boasts a unique structure that allows you to progress through the chapters from beginning to end or just dip into topics of particular interest at your leisure

This educational book is one that you will enjoy picking up, reading, then referring back to. It will make you wish other technical topics were presented in such a simple, attractive and engaging way!


From the Author: Goals for this Book

Programming books can often look rather intimidating and uninspiring, but they do not need to be. We wanted to redesign the tech book and make it more accessible, relevant, and attractive to a whole new group of readers. The result is a book that feels more like a magazine and is enjoyable to flick through, and looks like it belongs in the graphic design section rather than the programming section of a bookstore.

  • Large info-graphics are used to help simplify new or complex concepts
  • Clean design and layout presents each topic on a new page for easy reference
  • Printed in full-color, using a vibrant palette to distinguish different types of code
  • Attractive code samples help you make beautiful web sites
