Nifty new features

I’ve been using WordPress for my school blog since February 2011.  It’s always been a simple, reliable piece of software that has never given me much trouble.  So, when my website crashed again, I decided to toss up a WordPress site as a place holder until I found a better CMS (Content Management System) to replace the defunct system I was using.

However, I noticed that WordPress has a host of extremely useful and easy to install mods (they call them plugins).  For example, there is a simple plugin that allows you to add a YouTube channel to any page.  Another one lets you add a gallery, and another allows you to add a page for downloads.  It even has an event calendar.

I was also able to add a simple forum.

Another plugin lets you add random pictures:

Another lets you add a single YouTube Video:

Another feature it has, one that I will most likely never use, allows you to add a table to a post.  In fact, there are so many different features, I’m finding it hard to finish my homework with all of the distractions.

I should have done this a long time ago.

P.S – I’m still backing up the site to the root directory, but I’m looking at ways to automatically backup to Onedrive.  Hopefully, I won’t ever have to redo the website again!
