10 Things You Didn’t Know WordPress Could Do

Whether you’re a WordPress novice or a seasoned diehard, WordPress developers aim to make it not only expansive in its capabilities, but also manageable for the end user. There are literally thousands of features and plugins to choose from, and while this may seem overwhelming, they’re actually all intended to make things easier on you, the user.


WordPress Features


So if you’re a website designer, programmer, code writer, or blogger there are some pretty great WordPress plugins and features, that you probably didn’t know about, designed to make your life easier. Did we mention that they’re free?

Sitemap generation

These WordPress plugins not only create XML Sitemaps, but will also automatically submit them to Google each time you create or change a page. Google Support even states that, “In most cases, webmasters will benefit from Sitemap submission…” You hear that?! Google! Benefit!

Efficient page detours

With a very quick to install plugin, you can indicate when certain pages should be redirected to other pages. This is a huge time saver and space saver when it comes to avoiding duplicate content pages in multiple sections of the website.

Easy lightbox popups

There are several WordPress plugins that enable images to enlarge into a lightbox popup by default. This allows the user to view the image without having to navigate away from the current page.

Meta optimization

Another plugin installation allows you to optimize your meta data for enhanced search engine visibility by indicating areas for improvement.

Image editing

WordPress allows images to be resized within the content editor rather than having to scale and resize before inserting it. This may seem like a no brainer, but for those who don’t own photo editing software this feature really comes in handy. *Keep in mind, most websites have a 2MB limit per single photo upload.
