Top Recommended Plugins To Use With Limelight-Storefront

Typically, the Limelight-Storefront plugin will work with most WordPress plugins found on their official repository: https://wordpress.org/plugins/. Even with custom or external plugins the plugin should work just fine. However it should be noted that add-ons designed for WooCommerece or other proprietary plugin software will not work with Limelight-Storefront. Here’s a list of a few popular and commonly used plugins that work with Limelight-Storefront and that we recommend:

  • Contact Form 7
  • Conditional Widgets
  • Insert Headers & Footers
  • Contact Form CFDB7

Contact Form 7

For creating and managing contact forms throughout your WordPress site, this plugin will let you build and administer these forms.

Conditional Widgets

This allows you to add conditions on when to show widgets (sidebar, footer, etc.). For example, you may add a text widget “Test Widget”, that you want to show only on category pages, but not on the product page or other post types.


readcrumb NavXT

This is a breadcrumb plugin that allows you to show the breadcrumb trail throughout your WordPress site.

Regenerate Thumbnails

When your site is under construction or you change images in your WordPress site and media library a lot, this is a useful plugin that regenerates all the required image sizes to be used throughout your site.

Google XML Sitemaps

A simple sitemap generator for Google Sitemaps/Webmaster Tools that helps get indexed in search engines.

Custom Fields for Gutenberg

With the WordPress 5.0 they upgraded their classic editor to use the “Gutenberg” editor. Which by default hides custom fields. While you are building your content is helpful to see all of the custom field information. This plugin allows you to access those fields.

Marketing Tools:

All in One SEO Pack

OR

Yoast SEO

Should use one or the other (not together). For the importance of SEO and organic search engine ranking, these are the 2 most popular plugins to index your site in search engines, etc. Both pretty much do the same job just a matter of your preference.

This is a star rating system that allows you to add/use star ratings and enable comments/reviews to posts/pages/products/upsells etc.

For statistics/import/reporting/caching:

WordPress Importer

Import posts, pages, comments, custom fields, categories, tags and more from a WordPress export file.

Jetpack by WordPress.com

The ideal plugin for stats, related posts, search engine optimization, social sharing, protection, backups, security, and more.

WP Super Cache

A very fast caching engine for WordPress that produces static html files. This plugin generates static html files from your dynamic WordPress blog. After a html file is generated your webserver will serve that file instead of processing the comparatively heavier and more expensive WordPress PHP scripts.

For WordPress database/optimization/etc.

Advanced WordPress Reset

Reset and restore your WordPress database back to its first original status, just like if you make a fresh installation.

Advanced Database Cleaner

Clean database by deleting orphaned data such as ‘revisions’, ‘transients’, optimize database and more.

The above mentioned plugins are independent of Limelight-Storefront, and will work on any WordPress site.
