    Hello,

    I’m at a major milepost:

    I’ve purchased GeneratePress Premium and successfully used it to create two great website — both in two weekends — (1) http://www.bobbyangel.org and http://www.campfirepark.org. I wanted to have full control on my site, and after researching decided that Generate Press was the very best option in terms of its light weight design and ability to customize.

    Staying with the GeneratePress family, I also used (1) GenerateBlocks and (2) WP-Show-Posts. Third-party plugins include YourChannel and MailChimp.

    My questions is this:

    I would like to add some new plugins to add functionality of a gallery and social sharing (and perhaps optimization). I am tentatively looking at Envira for the gallery and Sassy Social Share for the social networking.

    My preference where possible is to go with Generate Press products or recommended products.

    Do you recommend alternative or additional plugins I may find useful?

    Thank you,

    bob

    P.S. Extremely happy with my websites. I couldn’t believe I set them up and they look so professional and work so well (desktop and mobile) after just one weekend of work.

    Hi,

    For social sharing: Consider trying David’s recommendation here-https://generatepress.com/forums/topic/make-related-article-in-sides-theme-like-rumour-theme/#post-1426228

    For the gallery, you can go ahead with Envira.

    Do you recommend alternative or additional plugins I may find useful?

    Less is more. As much as possible, its best to have less plugin installed so it doesn’t slow down your site. But to answer the question, if you need a caching tool, consider using AutOptimize. https://wordpress.org/plugins/autoptimize/

    And thank you, we’re glad that you’re happy with the results w/ using GeneratePress. It means a lot to us. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thank you Elvin!

    Happy to hear about GP Social Share.

    I will definitely go with it, as it sounds light weight (which is GP’s mantra) – And that’s why I went with GeneratePress to begin with. Good to get a go-ahead on the Envira gallery option, too, as the gallery function seems vital to what I am doing and Envira seems to be a well-coded and powerful tool with video gallery options.

    I appreciate your advice and will move ahead on those fronts.

    Note: While GP Social Share has “GP” on its name, it is not developed by us. It’s still pretty decent though.

    No problem. ๐Ÿ™‚
