The first top 5 WordPress plugins of the month came online a day later than you might be used to.
I found out a little too late that I had made a mistake with the date when I planned the article.
A day later, but certainly not less worth it. Below are 5 plugins that you might be interested in.
# 5 Post Category Image With Grid and Slider
If you want to give categories an image and show this on your website in the grid or in a slider, then you’re in the right place with the Post Category Image With Grid and Slider.
As soon as you activate the plugin you can add images. You also have the option to indicate for which kind of categories you want to do this, for example for custom post types categories.
Once the categories have been given an image, you can use a shortcode to add the categories in the grid or in a slider to a page.
# 4 Hide Page And Post Title
Hiding a title on a message or page can be very useful in some situations.
More and more themes give you this option, but if this is not the case for you, the Hide Page and Post Title plug-in can help you.
Once the plugin has been activated, you will have the option to check whether a title has to be hidden on the right side of the editor.
# 3 File Manager Advanced
Can not find the FTP data of your website or you just can not get logged in here, but do you have to be with the files?
With File Manager Advanced you can manage files on your server from WordPress. FTP is therefore redundant, although it is always useful to try to work via FTP at a later time.
Once you activate the plugin you can go to File Manager Advanced in the menu. You can then edit, delete, add, download and much more.
# 2 ACF Content Analysis for Yoast SEO
The Advanced Custom Fields plugin is very popular with more than 1 million active installations. What is unfortunate with this plugin is that the content in the custom field is not included in the Yoast SEO plugin.
The plugin ACF Content Analysis for Yoast SEO solves this problem for you.
With this plugin activated the content is analyzed in a normal way so that you know exactly how your content SEO is technically put together.
# 1 Server Mail Check
The plug-in Server Mail Check is incredibly simple but very useful in certain situations.
With this plugin, you can test whether emails sent via your WordPress website arrive correctly. So you can nicely test if there are problems or that everything is going well.
If the plugin is active on your website you can perform mail tests via “Dashboard -> Check Email”. Tip: I would test it for different types of email addresses, such as @ gmail.com, @ hotmail.com, etc.
