WP Magic Page Tutorial
WP Magic Page for WordPress impressed me in the demo. Now, I’ve tried it and it’s not a good fit for my personal websites. I may include it with some sites that I sell, but — at this point — I doubt it.
It works. That’s not the issue.
Okay, the name of the plugin is a slight misnomer: It creates posts, not pages. And, when I tested it, it puts those posts in their own folder /wpmagicpage/. They’re not part of the regular site hierarchy. That’s fine for a sales page or something, but for my sites, it looks a little weird. Worse, since posts are in a separate folder, they don’t show up on the sitemap.
Then there’s the plain vanilla theme for each post. It doesn’t look like the rest of my website. Again, this could be a plus if you’re using it for a sales page. That’s probably what it was designed for. However, I’d planned to use it for content. I’d expected a page-creator (not a post-creator) that would fit seamlessly into the rest of my website. It doesn’t.
So, I’m disappointed with the product. The good news is, when I realized what I was trying to accomplish with it, I saw how I might be able to do the same thing by hand-coding the tables I want. I’m exploring plugin options, first.
WP Magic Page wasn’t quite what I’d hoped, but you might like its features for your website.
