  1. A useful guide for those still stuck here too (, as it shows both code-only and plugin-only examples.

  2. That is why I love using Wix! There aren't any plugins to install. Straight-forward and easy!

  3. Very helpful video, thank you ?

  4. Plugins plugins plugins…I swear thereʻs gonna be a time when weʻll need a plugin to use capital letters!

    Canʻt you do this in your .php files maybe? So sick of having to install a plugin to do every little thing.

  5. need to update this video, this plugin is a lot more complex now, although limiting and useless to me.

  6. If you have Yoast and your site is multilingual – you will not have title and description on each language page. Yoast pushes only one title and one description – for default site’s language. There is a wordpress plugin that generates custom <title> and <description> tags depending of post/page's language.
