Every day of every week while you are working on your WordPress site, you probably wonder is there a way to speed up the process of development. Some developmental process takes a lot of time and effort to do, so why not find a way to speed things up a bit?
If you are in the game for some time, then you have the whole process memorized by now. You only wish that there is a way to increase the speed and efficiency at which you develop certain things. Be it a plugin development or a site development, there simply must be a way to make your life easier. Well, yes, there is!
I will offer you 8 plugins and programs that will surely help you out in your developmental endeavors! So, let’s see what we’ve got:
This is the go-to plugin if you are a plugin or theme developer on WordPress. Its brilliance lies in its ability to quickly and easily reset your WordPress site without any fuss.
This is especially helpful when you are just testing out code or a plugin on a site. Instead of going through the painstaking process of manually resetting all settings and so on, you can do all of that with the blink of an eye (one click).
It speeds up the developmental process by such a large margin that you will be surprised by how much time and effort you have saved up. To even further save uptime, you can establish a list of favorite plugins and themes that will be automatically installed after every reset or when you load up a new site.
Then again, if you do not want to reset the whole thing and start from scratch, you have the ability to reset only specific parts of your site. Things like plugins, themes, transients, your WP folder and so on.
If you want to be 100% sure that everything gets reset, then you have the option to do a “Nuclear Reset”. You might have guessed what this does, so I will just quote the developers on this one: “Need to be sure everything is gone? All options, all files, all custom database entries, and tables? Then hit the nuclear reset button.”
With its easy to use and user-friendly interface, Easy Redirect Manager is one of the, if not the best redirect plugin out there! Redirects are an important part of the developmental process of many sites, especially if you have changed your domain.
It is essential when you want to retain your SEO and increase your overall SEO and visitor count.
The biggest time-saving factor here is the fact that you do not have to spend so much time in redirecting. The whole process is very simplified and will greatly increase the speed at which you redirect your pages.
This little neat and lite plugin is all that you need when you are in the phase of maintaining your site. You can just quickly create a “Coming Soon” or “Under Maintenance” in a couple of minutes (even a couple of seconds).
This is absolutely fantastic when you need to do quick maintenance of your site, but you don’t have the time and patience to create a page that says under maintenance. Just create and design it how you want it to look like and from that moment onward you are ready to use it whenever you want.
Another easy to use option with more customization feature is Thrive Architect.
If you are using multiple accounts and have bazillion passwords that you have to keep track of, then this is the right thing for you. Not only does it store your passwords in a safe place, but it can also generate very powerful passwords.
This is the go-to place when you want to store your files in a safe place. With its quick and easy features, you and your team members can easily access the files and edit them.
- WP Squish
Getting tired of changing the proportions of your images and the size of the files themselves? Well, this plugin speeds up the process by a substantial margin by giving you the ability to set the resolution you want your images to be when they get uploaded.
So instead of you going around manually setting each individual image size and resolution, you just set what you want those parameters to be and the plugin does it automatically for you each time you upload an image to your site.
Tired of setting up meetings on Skype or some other platform? Want a program that gets you connected with your team members without a fuss? If yes, then this program is for you!
You can hold a conference that consists of a thousand team members all at once. This is really handy when you want to address a whole swarm of people at the same time. You can even record the conferences so that people who weren’t present can, later on, view the conference with ease.
With this little neat program, you can easily share and upload what you are currently doing on your workstation. You don’t have to go through the fuss of installing multiple programs and software in order to show your team members what is on your screen. You can record and stream from your camera, screen or even both!
Managing and saving up on your time is one of the most important things you have to do at the beginning of the developmental process. If you do it from the start you will be saving up so much time and effort in the future which means you can allocate more time on more pressing matters and projects that will benefit and improve your site or plugin!
