I’m a big fan of the Login with Ajax plugin. It makes it really easy to add a nice popup login form to a website. Here’s how to make the most of it, with a little custom code.
If you want to load a script or stylesheet on both the WordPress front end and login page, here’s how to register it once and load it in the appropriate places.
Gravity Forms and its User Registration add-on make it really easy to create custom registration pages. One problem you’ll hit if you combine that with WooCommerce is that WooCommerce uses standard country codes, but Gravity Forms uses country names. But that can be fixed.
Amazon Simple Email Service (SES) makes it easy, and cheap, to send emails reliably from a website. Here’s how to set it up for use with multiple domains.
Easy Digital Downloads comes with a PayPal Standard payment gateway, which lets us get our store up and selling quickly and cheaply. Let’s get it to select a better landing page with PayPal Standard, and make our credit card customers happier.

If you use a widget to host your form, however, it can’t detect that until it renders the widget… too late to load the stylesheets in the head. At that point, it just pulls them directly into the page body.
Events Manager is a really nice, easy to customise plugin for showing events on WordPress websites. One gripe I always have with it is that the location maps zoom when you use the mouse scroll wheel, something I always turn off when I add a map to a page. Here’s how to fix it.
