Getting the look of your page just right can be a deeply satisfying experience for website designers of all skill levels. It can also be a deeply exhausting process that can have you clicking and refreshing long into the night. Maybe you enjoy that experience, but perhaps you could also do without it. There are probably some times when it would be easier and nicer if the CSS would simply sort itself out. Just this once. Well, you’re in luck, as there are some great plugins available to put polished CSS on your site.
People like buttons. Buttons are fun to press and people understand that buttons make things happen. For anyone interested in creating a user-friendly interface that visitors will feel comfortable interacting with, buttons are absolutely crucial. They are also vital in ensuring that your users are navigating the site effectively and as you have intended. That being said, it can be a bother to make them yourself. The CSS coding can be tedious and making them in Photoshop is not much better.
Fortunately, there is a WordPress plugin that can help. MaxButtons: CSS3 Button Generator, in addition to sounding like a really geeky Bond flick, is a plugin designed to allow users to easily create buttons that can be placed anywhere in a WordPress website. Using the plugin’s design panel, the user can design the button using pure CSS with the full range of design elements that CSS has to offer. You can also see the button forming in real-time as you tick off the various options. When you are done, you generate a shortcode that can be placed anywhere in the site.
Some themes support columns natively. Others don’t. For those of you who would like to be able to segment a page or post in WordPress into different columns, this plugin comes highly recommended. Easy to use and with excellent controls for the WYSIWYG editor, it uses simple shortcodes to keep your content inline.
If you are looking for more comprehensive solutions than those listed above, you can also install a plugin that gives individual posts or pages their own style or a great does-it-all shortcode plugin.
