Replace Images without Deleting them

Ever had to reupload an old image and then go around and change all your URLs for that picture on your website? Feels super inefficient and not the most fun activity. When downloading the great WordPress plugin Folders by Premio I found that it that has a neat side feature. It allows you to replace images you have already uploaded. Whilst keeping the same exact details so that the image doesn’t break all over your website.

Fix CPU Issues and Speed up your website

Do you find that you are getting a critical error from your shared hosting WordPress website? Which only happens when your editing pages? Sometimes this is because you have maxed out your CPU usage. The error can delay your work and put you behind which is frustrating. I found a useful WordPress plugin called WP Memory by Bill Minozzi. The addon forces your CPU memory to be set to the maximum your host provides. Which does not always happen by default.

You can check your CPU usage easily in Cpanel. It should be on the main page on the right.

Another great addon for managing your WordPress CPU usage is Heartbeat Control by WP RocketThis limits the amount of backend requests you do (like how many autosave drafts WordPress can save per minute) to limit your CPU usage. Which is extremely useful if your editing your website for long periods of time.

Free Dark Theme Plugin - Front End and Back End Dark Theme addon

Do you get sore eyes looking at your white wordpress backend whilst editing late at night? Are you used to a dark theme on all the websites you frequent – so the lack of a wordpress backend dark theme drives you nuts? A plugin like WP Dark Mode by WPPOOL will fix your issue no sweat.

It could be that you are like me and typed in, “free wordpress dark theme” or searched for ages on the WordPress themes menu trying to find a perfect Dark theme? Unfortunately, WordPress itself does not allow you to filter by dark themes (as of 2022). So it can leave you hopelessly clicking on different theme previews. As you try to find one that has a dark theme that also has all the visual aesthetics and other features you need.

If this is making you frustrated. Then sometimes finding a theme you like and combining it with a dark theme plugin can be much better. Especially as the addon allows the visitors to toggle and pick whether they want your website to be in a dark theme or a light theme. This dark theme plugin is also super easy to combine with Elementor.

Automatic year updater so that your website updates by itself

If you’re like me and manually build your website with Elementor. Then you’ll likely need to custom build your own footer too. Or you are just in the need of something which automatically adjusts the date for you. Then Current Year Shortcode VICT by Voordelig ICT is probably what you are looking for.

Why this WordPress plugin? Cause it’s super small. This little addon is compact and simple to use. Simply placing the [vict-year] shortcode anywhere on your website is all you need to do. The addon makes it so you never have to think about adjusting the year anywhere on your website ever again.

Has your website been around for a while now and you have a ton of hyperlinks across all your pages? Do you not have the time to check every link every few months to see if they are all still working? Then the plugin Broken Link Checker by WPMU DEV is for you.
