Extending WordPress with plugins

WordPress is open-source software, and its online community has contributed many free (and paid) plugins that extend the functionality of the standard “out-of-the-box” feature set.

We’ve partnered with the best plugin and theme developers, and resurrected others that have been neglected, to provide you with the best supported, actively maintained plugins for your WordPress website.

Developed In-House

PantryPress

Adds custom post types and taxonomies to WordPress for Products, Aisles, Shelves, Order Forms, and Clients, including full integration and extensions of Ultimate Member (required). PantryPress also includes a co-branded license for MyChoice, available on the web and coming soon to iOS, Android, and Windows.

MarketPress Pro

Originally developed by WPMU DEV (now retired), and resurrected with our ongoing development, MarketPress Pro adds custom post types and taxonomies to WordPress for products, product categories, orders, and customers. Extended permissions allow customers to place orders, review order history, and manage payment/personal info without modifying the standard WordPress permissions.

CoursePress Pro

Originally developed by WPMU DEV (now retired), and resurrected with our ongoing development, CoursePress Pro adds custom post types and taxonomies to WordPress for classes, instructors, class categories, venues, organizers, and more. Extended permissions allow students to update profiles, join classes, and view content without modifying the standard WordPress permissions.
