Formatting your website pages is really important for getting your visitors to read it. Generally, we don’t read web pages, we scan them. You can probably expect new visitors to your website to read the first 2 paragraphs of any article and then move on. So you’ve got to grab their attention and keep it.

I’m going to let you in on a not so little WordPress gem that will let you sort out your information with ease and communicate your point instantly. Yep, it’s a WordPress plugin, but this one has so many knobs and whistles that you’ll never be short of new ways to make your pages work for you.

Icould go on playing, but I shall leave you to have fun with it. As soon as you press the shortcode button you will see a list of options. Click an option and the plugin takes you through an easy to use pop up screen where you can choose colours, tweak the options, add your photos or videos and generally produce something whizzy that will look as if it has been professionally designed for your website.
