Although somewhat of an offbeat concept, storing your documents in WordPress can provide a number of benefits. PDFs and other types of documents(Word, Excel, PowerPoint) can be quickly shared with others who need access to certain information.

There aren’t too many plugins available with this direct functionality. However the plugins which are out there have some of the best interfaces imaginable. Take a look over this collection and see if you can find any valuable resources to handle online document storage in WordPress.

    There are lots of possible design scenarios for a WordPress theme: “how a post will look with a featured image or embedded tweet”, “will lists with x depth fit well”.. and more.

    WP Test is a free-to-use test data for WordPress that can be installed to find out “how the theme will behave with different content types”.

    WP Test

    The data is available as XML (+ the images) and it can be imported to a “test installation” with the help of a plugin.

    After that, we can simply see the tests as posts and decide if things are ok or not.

    Pinterest-like responsive grid layouts became one of the standard ways to present “lots of content” in an organized way.

    For anyone willing to use such layouts on any web project, Grid Layout Shock is one of the easiest yet feature-rich solutions out there. And, they are giving away 5 Developers licenses to WRD readers (details at the bottom).


    It is available in 2 versions:

    • WordPress plugin
    • jQuery plugin

    which makes the usage for almost any type of website so quick and painless.

    They are both responsive, have multiple styles and can be customized in means of look/feel.

    The WordPress plugin integrates with the site completely as it can pull the content from posts, custom post types, taxonomies, galleries and portfolios (both versions can get the data from RSS).

    GridLayoutShock Sample

    Using the shortcode generated in the plugin’s settings page, it can be added anywhere inside pages, posts and widgets. Or, the whole site can be displayed with a responsive grid template.

    Also, the number of the posts, their order or dimensions can all be set.

    Grid Layout Shock has both free (with limited features) and paid versions. Make sure you check them all.

    How to join the giveaway?

    5 Developer licenses ($99/each) are being given away. In order to join you can choose one or both of the actions to increase the chances:
