Preferential Lite offers several features, but some require plugins if you decide to use them and should be considered as optional. You will need to download and install these because they are not included in the download of this theme. I do this so that everyone can choose which plugins they want to install, but it also ensures the most recent version of each plugin is installed.
To install plugins, you will go to:
Appearance >> Plugins >> Add New
Do a search for the name, click Install, and Activate.
Plugins the Demo Site Uses
- Jetpack – This is a comprehensive plugin (actually several plugins rolled into one) that handles most of the functions and features.
- Dynamic Widgets – This lets you publish widgets to your choice of pages, posts, etc.
- Breadcrumb NavXT – This gives you a breadcrumb navigation above the content area in pages
- Hide Title – Allows you to hide the titles of posts or pages, individually.
- Preserved HTML Editor Markup – A WordPress Plugin that preserves HTML markup in the TinyMCE editor, especially when switching between Visual and Text on the editor
- Remove Widget Titles – This gives you the ability to disable widget titles – perfect for sliders and banners
- Simply Exclude – This gives you the ability to exclude categories, posts, and more from different parts of your website. I used it to exclude special post formats from the main blog.
