Divi WordPress Theme
The WordPress Curated Network is built on WordPress, obvio, and hosted by Cloudways[affiliate link]

I created the site using Divi theme by Elegant Themes on an Acer Chromebook. [affiliate links] Because I’m too poor to afford a MacBook.

The font is Proza Libre.

I used Coolers to generate the color palette.

The WPC.N uses the following WordPress plugins:

  • Breeze, a high-performance caching plugin provided by Cloudways. [affiliate link]
  • Buttonizer, a smart, floating, action button for WordPress.
  • Child Theme Configurator, a tool for creating, editing, and maintaining child themes.
  • Divi Children, a plugin for adding easy-to-update settings to Divi child themes using the built-in WordPress customizer.
  • Duplicate Post, for, yeah, cloning posts and pages easily. Why isn’t this in WordPress core?
  • MyCurator, this quite nifty content curation plugin provides the Network’s core functionality on the backend.
  • Post SMTP, an essential plugin for making sure e-mail gets sent from your WordPress site.
  • ProfileGrid, a lightweight plugin to turn your WordPress site into an easy social network.
  • ProfileGrid WooCommerce, adds powerful features to users’ profiles in WooCommerce, integrating with the social networking features of ProfileGrid.
  • Relevanssi, an essential plugin that vastly improves the built-in WordPress search, which as we all know sucks.
  • wpDiscuz, for a more powerful commenting system.
  • Smush Pro, for optimizing images.
  • The GDPR Framework, an unfortunately necessary tool that helps you cover your EU privacy bases.
  • Update Theme and Plugins from Zip File, an essential plugin that allows you to upload zip files to update plugins instead of having to delete the old version first. One of those plugins you didn’t know you needed until you use it.
  • WooCommerce, the standard for online stores on WordPress
  • Wordfence Security, the most reputable and powerful security plugin for WordPress.
  • WP Remote, a central dashboard for managing WordPress plugins and themes. It’s free, powerful, and my favorite.
  • Yoast SEO Premium, the most well-known WordPress plugin for optimizaing your search presence.

Too many? 😉
