In the next few months , the OpenSourcery will be featuring good plugin add-ons to the popular WordPress PageBuilders. What are the popular WordPress ? Beaver Builder, Elementor, Divi and Thrive Architect are used on a number of my clients websites. And Elementor leads WordPress PageBuilders with the most active user – over 3 million. So the Elementor add-on Livemesh is featured here. Livemesh in its free version has a splendid portfolio display component.
Livemesh Elementor Addon
Livemesh builds Page Builder add-ons for BeaverBuilder, Eementor, Siteorigin, and Visual Composer. The portfolio display component is compelling:
There are plenty of options- to control the grid layout of the blog posts:
1 – a choice of 1 to 5 columns with control of gutter spacing;
2 – control of order and display of the posts
3 – options to include author, date, and category for each posts;
4 – maximum number of posts to display on page
5 – typography and background color control for the grid
6 – filter the Posts included by category
It is the last feature, the ability to filter the Posts on display by what categories they belong to that is especially attractive. Even looking up my own Posts, I like to filter by category to see the related posts. Just as important, the response time to the initial load of the portfolio of posts is fast. Just as important, the response time when changing the filter is blazingly fast. This encourages experimenting among the posts.
And this free version of the Livemesh add-on has a number of team and social plugins like Testimonials or Tesimonials Carousels and the Team components. All of the components are very useful for Membership or Buddy Press websites. And this same innovation in composite features shows up in the pro version of Livemesh. Take a look at the Pro Gallery component:
The Pro Gallery component supports Grid, Masonry, and Justified layouts along with a variety of image loading methods – paged, load more and lazy loading. This composit strength is seen in an number of the Pro components like Video Grids and Carousels, Features Portfolio, Twitter Board, Piechart Dashboard. there is a total of 30 well designed components.
Livemesh has taken a cue from Elementor and provides lots of free value with its addons. The Portfolio component is a great example of a composite whic provides a variety of options for display your portfolio of posts. And the good new is hat this composite savvy extends to the Pro version of Livemesh Elementor addons.
