You know the difference?
You know what the big deal is between a WordPress theme and a WordPress plug-in? Let me tell you a brief history from when I was a beginner...if you know the differences would have worked. First WordPress web pages I created I frankly had no idea what I was doing.
It was at this point that I began to build a property website. Initially I went looking for a WordPress theme made for property sites and found a flawless one: it cost only $50, had a graphical draw -and-drop interface (so I didn't have to play around with any code), had built-in slider controls, and even had a way for the users to enter property ads.
Approximately six month later they came back and asked if it was possible to make a difference; they had renamed their business and wanted the site to mirror their new look. However, when I changed subjects, I encountered a big problem: all the work I had done in the draft and fall editors turned into a bizarre piece of coding that I later found out was shortcuts.
Those property ads... are gone. When I get back to the old subject, it all comes back. However, there was no easy way for me to change the topics without a lot of extra effort in remodeling the site. If you' re not a hard-core designer, even if you're just starting out with WordPress, you want to know the differences between a design and a plug-in so you don't get caught in the same situations as me.
Things I will cover in this paper are best practice in the WordPress comunity. So, let's get into this debate by first investigating what WordPress topics do. Well, what's a subject? When we would be comparing a WordPress website to a automobile, the subject is like the outside of the automobile.
Controlling the visibility of your website: website layout, colours, design, etc. Essentially, the theme picks up all the information saved on your website (posts, pages, side bars, etc.) and defines how you can organise it and show it to your users. If we have a blogsite, for example, the topic will define the appearance of the headers and footers and how each posting is displayed:
One example of a design is the Twenty Fifteen Design, which you will find in almost every new WordPress installation. Well, now that we know about issues, let's talk about plug-ins. Which is a plugin? To return to the autometapher when the subject is like the outside of the vehicle, think of plug-ins as add-ons and customizations to your car: a global positioning system, a larger motor, seat heating.
The plug-ins are mainly WordPress enhancements. You take over the WordPress kernel and modify, extend, supplement, supplement or delete functions. One of the simplest ways to get an understanding of plug-ins is to take a look at some of them. There is no way to create a Contacts page without creating your own customized codes in the WordPress kernel application.
However, you can use a plug-in such as Contact Form 7 to build and append a form to pages. The WordPress plug-in adds functions to the WordPress application. One example of a plug-in that eliminates the feature is the Remove Administration Toolbar. While this is standard feature, some folks don't want the administration panel to appear on the frontend.
So, this plug-in will remove it. In short, the plug-ins influence the website's functionalities, while the topics influence the website's look and feel. You may find plug-ins that influence the look and feel of your website, and you may find topics that influence the way your website works. As an example, the much-loved Design Palette Pro plug-in allows you to adjust the look and feel of any Genesis-based website.
Many property topics also adds features to your website that allow agent to include offers on their website. It is not a mistake to use plug-ins that influence the look and feel, or topics that influence the website's function, I don't think. Take a look, for example, at what happend to me when I used a design that had list capabilities in it.
Couldn't switch to another subject. However, there may be a period of opportunity when the projects encourages you to use topics like these. Normally it is okay to use plug-ins that influence the look and feel, but you should find a design that only governs the look and feel and allows the plug-ins to do the work.
StudioPress does this perfect for property topics. Your AgentPress Theme only changes the look and feel of your website. Use the AgentPress Listingings plug-in to include property listings functions. In this way, when a subscriber chooses to change topics, he does not loose the features.
How to find great topics and great plugs? WordPress.org has free theme folders and plug-ins that track best practice. When you receive a premier theme or plug-in, you should try it out and make sure it is best practice by maintaining plug-in rather than design features.
