Week 6 and alls well

Last Update: September 13, 2018

Pretty much been more of the same this week. Adding content, making it look pretty, and researching and installing plugins to add more functionality and ease of development to my sites.

The first was the Amazon Affiliates plugin, although I'm having trouble getting the API to work so I have to hard code my ads into the page. No big deal since Amazon provides a tool to get the iframe code, but there are still limitations over the API.

I also installed an eCommerce suite, instantly adding a shopping cart to sell my own products. And adding products is just like adding a new page, simple and familiar. Its called WooCommerce and gives some advice about installing and setting up to link with your PayPal account and also on accepting credit cards directly.

Finally I added the Elementor plugin, a drag and drop page builder that avoids the need to write code and lets you build each page to look exactly how you want it to. Haven't looked much into that yet but I will over the weekend.

Oh, and all these plug ins were FREE, too!!


That's all for now, happy truckin'
