WordPress Themes Plugins Widgets and Menus
WordPress themes, plugins, widgets and menus make the WordPress world go around. Of course, actually the PHP and the mySql really do it, but we don’t have to look at that much. Though I’ve been creating sites for years, hand coding, and though I’ve seen many sites under the covers in WordPress, Joomla, Flash and even html and css static sites, I found that WordPress themes, plugins, widgets and menus where quite confusing. What the WordPress themes, plugins, widgets and menus do were no that confusing, but where to find them and how to control them was confusing.
Plus, especially for plugins, widgets and menus, what you can do with them varies as you go from theme to theme. One can be quite comfortable using and getting around in a particular theme, but change the theme, and one can find themselves lost. This video is a brief explanation of what WordPress themes, plugins, widget and menus do, and how they may vary as one goes from one theme to another. Pretty much here is how it goes for WordPress themes, plugins, widget and menus. Themes are like the car. The theme is the appearance of the car. Jeep Wrangler or Corvette, how do you want to ride.
But the Jeep comes with certain standard equipment that the Corvette lacks. On rugged road you want the Jeep. If you want to put the peddle to the metal, then you want the Corvette. Plugins are add ons that your standard equipment does not include. Maybe you want a microwave in your corvette. Maybe you want an ice cream maker in your Jeep.
Some PHP developer has made one up some where, all you have to do is search Google. Some themes support 15 menus that you can put anywhere. Some themes only let you use one menu, and maybe the place it is as standard is not where you want it to be. Enjoy, “ WordPress themes, plugins, widget and menus.”
