7 more underrated (but awesome) plugins

There’s nothing more frustrating than feeling like your skills (or lack thereof) limit the full potential of your website. I recently covered five underrated plugins, but I figured – why stop there?

Whether you’re a website newbie or a seasoned professional on a tight budget, here are seven more plugins to help add new functions without requiring extra frustration.

  1. SEO Optimized Images: Do you know how to optimize images for search engines? Don’t avoid search engine optimization (SEO); instead, use SEO Optimized Images plugin to help search engines and visitors find your content.
  2. PDF & Print: Would your visitors benefit from being able to save a webpage on your site as a PDF to print it later? Use PDF & Print to include a small icon on your site to offer visitors an alternative to screenshots or copying and pasting content.
  3. Tiny Scrollbar: Smartphones have taken over our technical world. By 2020, Ericsson estimates up to 70% of the world’s population will have smartphones. Is your site mobile-friendly? Cue Tiny Scrollbar, a cross-platform plugin that offers both vertical and horizontal scrolling options. It also keeps text and images in smaller windows for easy viewing on mobile devices.
  4. Thank Me Later: Fewer people may be commentating on your blogs, so it’s more important now than ever to thank those who do take the time and effort to comment on your blog. Thank Me Later provides an automated email message that can be sent to blog commenters immediately or at a specific time.
  5. Disqus Comment System: Attention content-heavy sites, this one is for you. Disqus promotes direct engagement by enabling visitors to respond to each other’s comments and allows for moderation and sharing through social media.
  6. Slideshow Gallery: If you have an image-oriented website, the Slideshow Gallery is for you (we’re looking at you, e-commerce sites). It simply offers an easy way to add scrolling slideshows of images.
  7. EasyPricing Tables: Multiple pricing options look best in a table, but creating beautiful, professional tables can go beyond a non-techie’s skill set. Easy Pricing Tables provides customizable templates to display your pricing plans, such as highlighting a popular or best value plan.
