Plugins for #WordPress Websites

One of the most valuable lessons we have learned from working with plugins is this: Before you add any MORE plugins, get to know the ones you have and what they can do. Read more in the praise.

Each word press website functions and operates, and expands by using plugins. Each plugin is developed and functions to get your website to do something – – often something incredible.

The most difficult part is understanding what each plugin does, especially how to use it on your MINISTERING website. Almost everything you can Google and find a YouTube video, but it’s never talking about how a minister would use it on her own website and how we use it on our 25 RMI websites.

What we want to offer you in this course is an understanding of plugins, how easy they are to install, how to use them (and how to give to the developer and why “ our promise to you our give and it WILL BE given to you, press down and overflowing”).

Most importantly, we will share the plugins we use most successfully for various purposes and #Plugins updates posted on RMIOUFT website used by our active ADMinsters for training. Such as cyber security to prevent hacking. Or a plugin to help you form a ministry community. The plugin we use to generate the praise to form your blog. “Enter his gates, with thanksgiving and his courts with praise.” “I inhabit the praises of my people.”

Plugin updates. It’s important to keep your plugins updated. There’s a reason for updating your phone and your computer because it fixes glitches, sometimes hacking issues, and when the developer finds ways of improving the plugin.

Enable auto-update. The Lord led us to set all our 24+ websites to allow for auto updates. Normally these auto updates will show WHEN the update will take place—normally, how many hours in the future it will automatically update. We learned from our Flywheel host (hosted, which means our website is hosted on their servers) that it is better to wait and allow the auto update to do it rather than manually updating it yourself – – which is also an option. It is something that very often we have to do.

Our RMI Web Team, who checks the websites' health, agreed, “It may be safer for us just to update the plugins we see even if they will update themselves in a few hours.

Enabling the automatic plugins is great so the ones can update that we don't see when we are not online, but if we check our websites and some plugins will update in a few hours, I recommend that we update them and get it over with so if there are security issues addressed in that plugin, we are not vulnerable for a few hours more until the plugin updates itself.”

The point is to keep your plugins updated to the newest version so your WordPress website (and all your electronics) function properly. Pay attention to red alerts and take care of them. You often purchase plugins that will continue to try and get you to pay for a higher pro version. Once you determine if you need it, by simply asking your *Husband, which we recommend, that notice should be turned off so you don’t ignore red notices.

MailPoet Premium
Watch the video

RMI uses this MailPoet Premium plugin on most of our websites to make it easier to send a notification about a new post rather than MailChimp and a full newsletter, which is what we used for many YEARS.

MailChimp wasn't just more invested time, it was financially more expensive (paid monthly), and its pricing was highly complicated— requiring us to periodically clear out email addresses because RMI wants to use the tithes and offerings of our Investment Partners wisely.

We apologize for using what you can find searching yourself (below in red) and by boasting about this weakness along with trusting a double recompense for our transgression, we TRUST He will enable us to provide our RMIOU students and especially our new Licensed Ministry Franchises with easy to follow information for their WordPress websites.

Use MailPoet to create, send, manage, and grow your email marketing campaigns – all without leaving your WordPress dashboard. Our newsletter builder integrates perfectly with WordPress so any website owner can create beautiful emails from scratch, or by using our responsive templates that display flawlessly across all devices. Schedule your newsletters, send them right away, or set up new blog post notifications to send automatically, in just a few clicks.

In WordPress, widgets are blocks of content that you can add to your site’s sidebars, footers, and other areas, depending on your WordPress Theme.

If you visit a blog and see signup forms, recently added posts or photos, those are all widgets.
