Installing WordPress Plugins are one of the most powerful ways you can extend and expand the features of your blog. There are more than 50,000 plugins for WordPress, and they can help you do everything from creating beautiful image slideshows, to protecting you from spam comments, to helping you get more search engine traffic.
In this video, you’ll learn how to install new plugins, and I’ll show you how to set up and configure two free plugins that every WordPress blog or website should have.
Getting Extra Support
Congratulations! I know we’ve covered a lot of ground in a short time. You’ve learned how to set up hosting and WordPress, how to install and customize a theme, create new pages, and install plugins. You’re practically a WordPress website developer at this point. 🙂
But what if you need more help?
One of the best places to go for support is to the company you bought your theme from. StudioPress, for example, has a great support staff in case you get stuck with something.
And if you run into something unrelated to your theme, it’s still easy to get help because WordPress is such a popular platform. There are even companies that do nothing but WordPress support.
One of those companies is called WP Curve.
WP Curve was started back in 2013 and has grown into a leader in WordPress support. They have a team of developers around the world working 24/7 doing small WordPress jobs. You can sign up for an account with them and send them unlimited small jobs. It doesn’t really get better than that.
Setting Up Email at Your Domain
At some point, it will probably make sense for you to have an email address that is associated at your domain. That means emailing people from firstname.lastname@example.org instead of something like email@example.com.
I highly recommend using Google Apps for Your Domain. Now called “G Suite.” You can learn how to set up G Suite on the next page.
