We’ve made it easier to browse our Add Ons with category filters and ‘ease of use’ ratings. Continue reading for a description of each category and details on how the ratings impact the ongoing development of our Add Ons library.
New Categorization = Easier Filtering
When we realized the number of our Free and Plus Add Ons (all included in our PMPro Plus-Level membership) had gotten so large, we knew something had to be done to improve the browsing experience. Users needed a way to sort through the growing number of extensions to find the right features to improve their membership site.
Add On Categories Include:
Ease of Use Rating
Each Add On now has a rating for how easy (or difficult) we feel the plugin is to set up, plan for, and integrate into your membership site.
Not only will these ratings allow you to make more informed choices for your skills, they help us identify which Add Ons need to be improved. We are making an internal commitment to improve the ease of use for more Add Ons wherever possible, which means less coding for you and your developers.
Here’s a general description of what each rating means:
4: The full features of this Add On are immediately available after activation.
3: After activating this Add On, you will need to configure a few settings and options via the WordPress Dashboard.
Example: Email Templates Admin Editor
2: Configuring this Add On requires multiple settings and/or may require basic WordPress and PHP coding skills to set up.
Example: Developer’s Toolkit
1: An experienced WordPress developer will be able to help you install and use this add on.
Example: Member Network Sites
