YANF WordPress Instance
I have reason to set up another wordpress instance. Here are my notes.
I had a look at the themes available and for reasons of speed i.e. time to market and for reasons of aesthetics I chose Minnow again.
I have started with a couple of plugins, akismet of course but also
- https://bbpress.org/, a bulleting board wrapper
- New User Approve, there is a Register button on the login page, here is the plugin page
- WordPress Social Login/, supports the big three plus some others. Simple to install.
- Share Buttons by AddThis
I found this, but probably won’t use it, I think New User Approve and WordPress Social Login are a better solution.
I need a meta tag manager, add meta tags has gone, and I use Meta Tag Manager in one of the sites. Obvs I need to check which to replace it with.
Also potentially useful,
- How to declutter your wordpress website, a bunch of good ideas
- https://www.memberpress.com/membership-self-service-is-the-best-service/, this might be best investigated, it could be very powerful piece of self service software
- https://memberful.com/help/third-party-integrations/bbpress/, another member management plugin, integrated with BB Press.
- https://wordpress.org/plugins/import-users-from-csv/, allows copy from a spreadsheet as does, https://wordpress.org/plugins/members-import/
