Trials for Soliloquy and Gravity Forms
Soliloquy as a slider plugin stands alone and talks about images on the website — better than Shakespeare! I expected the plugin to work with the new versions and as you can see the toy slide show in the footer, the plugin does have a good response with this installation. Soliloquy works exceptionally well, making it worth the price of a license. I’ve had other sliders that I like, but am rapidly changing my favorites to this one. I like being able to install it and get smooth action right away. Soliloquy has always ‘played nice’ with other plugins that I consider necessities for a website.
Gravity Forms is another powerful plugin that I like to have available for websites to create unique, attractive forms that are solely designed to work with WordPress. The Forms are compatible with popular email services, Aweber and MailChimp. There are additional add-ons that permit signatures, purchases and payments through PayPal, polls, quizzes and other items. The support forum is a resource for the forms along with a knowledge base that helps with some of the formatting. I’m using a sample form at the Contact Page for this website.

I’m also having ‘fun’ experimenting with the various column options for the pages. Adding paragraphs gave me some trouble for a bit. But, I noticed a piece of ‘div’ code that occurred in the text/html view when I hit ‘enter/carriage return’ as typically done for a new paragraph. When I removed that line of code and used the basic code for a new paragraph, the content lined up.
Another item which plays well with the column coding is the BlockQuote.
Simply applying the BlockQuote option to content in a column gave us that ‘sidebar’ bit of information…set apart, yet the column content carried on properly.
