  • Owl Carouselif you MUST use carousels, this one should do the trick. it’s responsive and has a BOATLOAD of options
  • CMB2 – making custom metaboxes is time consuming and tough to maintain, use CMB2 to make them quicker and cleaner/prettier
  • Prepros – FREE (nagging message every 5 minutes), but only $29 for a lifetime license. awesome tool that works on windows/mac/linux that can compile LESS, Sass, minify js/css, make bacon, etc.
  • Fontello – don’t use images for your social media icons (or any icons for that matter) — you’ll most likely find what you’re looking for on the site. if you need to add more in the future, you can simply drag and drop the original svg you have and then add to it
