12 Frustrating Things About WordPress & How to Make Them Go Away

https://www.elegantthemes.com/blog/tips-tricks/frustrating-things-about-wordpressMake no mistake: WordPress is an awesome CMS. But nothing is 100% perfect. There are always going to be frustrating things about WordPress, even for hardcore fans like us. That’s why WordPress has been designed to be incredibly extendable with themes, plugins, code snippets, and more. Because of this, there is almost always a great fix for any little annoyance. Which is what we’d like to highlight in today’s post. We’ve listed twelve things that frustrate people about WordPress and the solutions that make those annoyances go away.

Below you will find the most common issues WordPress users encounter within the platform. If you’re tired of running into them, we’d urge you to give these solutions a try.

Poorly coded plugins also pose a problem for WordPress sites. Since plugins are meant to add an extra layer of “something” to your website, it would be a shame to install one only to discover that it’s creating more issues than it’s solving. For instance, plugins can: Read original article here…. elegantthemes.com

Hi John and Marcus,
Thank you for all of your work on the show. One question for you:
1. I am trying to create a website that is a collection of useful links. I would like to create a form where users can subit their own links to be added to my site. Is there a form plugin I can use where for each of the form fields that a user submits, the entries are then automatically added to custom fields of a new custom post type.For example, if someone submits a new link to my website, they might enter the web URL of a given article, then in another field, type in the title of that article, and then in another field of the form, enter a short description of the article. When the user hits ‘submit’, I would like to be able to review their submission, and then once I accept it, have each of their fields automatically create a new custom post type entry, and have the different form fields populate custom fields within that custom post type.Is there a plugin that can do this?Again, thank you for all of the work that you do every single week.

Dave Brandt

Quiz Cat

Premium Plugin
sent in by David Hehenberger
The  Lowdown:
Viral quizzes are definitely a thing and you should be able to create them on your own website. With this plugin you can create those crazy quizzes and collect emails addresses when your visitors want the results. It has integrations for Mailchimp and Zapier. You can create unique quizzes tailored to your website focus, create personality quizzes and just have some fun. If you get real creative you might even have one go viral. It’s a pretty great plugin although I did have some issues in the MU environment but will contact the developer about them and get back to you on it.
Rating 4 Dragons.

Notification

Sent in by Kuba Mikita
The Lowdown:
This plugin allow you to create notification for just about everything that happens in your website. You can create custom notifications to any email you want. You can choose from the list of most common triggers such as post/page published or updated, comments added or approved, pingback or trackbacks. And if those are not enough you can register your own custom triggers and more.. All in all looks to be a pretty good way to insure you get those important email notifications from your site.
Rating 4 Dragons.

ACF Theme Code Pro

Premium Plugin
sent in by Aaron Rutley
The Lowdown:
If you use the plugin Advanced Custom Fields this plugin will help you out by making it easy to generate the coed necessary to implement your custom fields in your theme.  they do have a free version you can try out https://wordpress.org/plugins/acf-theme-code/ this way you can insure it will help in your particular tasks. Although I am not currently using the Advance custom field plugin this one looks like it will help out quite well for those of you who do check it out.

WP Facebook Live Video

https://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-facebook-live-video/
WP Facebook Live Video displays a live video from your Facebook Page or Profile on any WordPress post or page using a simple shortcode. The plugin requires some initial setup work which involves creating a Facebook application. A step by step guide on the plugin settings page will show you through this. Once you have setup the application and you enter in your application details on the settings page you just need to place the shortcode: [facebooklivevideo] wherever you want the live video to appear. If there’s no live video recording simply nothing will be shown. A live video will only be shown if it’s actually live!
