New Plugins New Style

So one of the biggest changes I have made in 2017 so far is this site. For starters I kicked in the new WordPress 2017 Theme. I really like the simple look and the functionality it brings to the table.

The second being I updated some of the plugins on the back-end, and removed some more.

Theme My Login:

This is probably one of my favorite plugins ever. I have been using WordPress for years now, and one of the biggest things that always got to me was the login page. A page not many people normally see if you run a blog by yourself, but still we need to show it some love. Theme My Login does exactly that. This plugin takes the CSS from the rest of your site and applies it to a new login page. It also through in some nice widgets to use instead of the standard META ones. I highly recommend it.

Yoast SEO:

I had a different SEO pack in 2015/2016 and I never really used it. A lot of the features were paid features, and the tools just didn’t fit the spot I needed them in. A quick Google search later and I find Yoast SEO. Once you install this plugin, it takes you through a very simple extremely easy to use configuration center. You plug in everything you want it to know about you and it does the rest.

SyntaxHighlighter Evolved:

This is a plugin I didn’t really need, but it makes some of my pages and posts stick out nicely. My full time job requires a ton of my time, and I try to save as much of it as I can by writing scripts to automate a lot of what I do. I have posted some of these to the site here, but the page never really looked the way I wanted it to. This plugin adds the correct look and feel of the code so people can read it easily. I highly recommend anyone who puts any type of code on their site to look into something like this. You can easily turn this
