Custom Post Types CPT-UI
Custom Post types can convert a WordPress blog into a Content Management System. This provides a mechanism for building a more customized website.
Advanced Custom Fields ACF
ACF lets a developer build display & collection forms which are customized to the specific needs of a business. That makes data collection faster, reduces errors and improves the user experience.
This is the tool that powers 40+ percent of websites on the internet. Because of this massive market share, there are many training resources & competent technical support is easily available.
However, new tools are becoming available so quickly, that support for the new tools has lagged. At OakCo we plan to improve the training environment for the best new tools.
WordPress websites need a theme. A well coded theme builds on the WordPress foundation and ads a variety of essential features and functions. GeneratePress constructs their themes with a philosophy of fewer tools, with more features within each tool.
Blocks let a designer put their personal touch on a website. Blocks are pre-coded templates that provide complex functions without coding. The plugin developer already did the coding. There are thousands of block templates available; the trick is to find well coded blocks that do what need. GenerateBlocks has only a few blocks, but each block has dozens of settings that let the developer & designer make it look and act the way it should to build a fast loading page the visitor loves.
What is the “Sure” ecosystem?
One of the most innovative plugin developers is launching a line of related plugins that take advantage of the WordPress block editor power. They are fanatical about user interface design and use of their plugins demands less technical skill than previously. Happily, their free plugin versions are all eCommerce novices require to build minimally viable eCommerce websites. OakCo is all about eCommerce the “SURE” way.
This shopping cart product is the heart of the Sure ecosystem. It’s a SaaS (Software as a Service), so all the order processing and customer notifications run on their servers. It’s impossible to overstate how much complexity this offloads from the eCommerce business using it.
SureMembers is a content restriction tool. It limits the visibility of pages or sections of your website to whatever niche you decide.
SureTriggers is a automation tool. When someone purchases something from your business using SureCart, SureTriggers and automatically add the customer to your CRM (Customer Relationship Manager), as well as start an automated email sequence from your email management tool.
