This article lists some plugins commonly used by Oxygen users.
Needless to say, not every plugin is needed for every site. But this list should give you a general idea of the recommended plugins if you are using Oxygen for building WordPress sites.
Oxygen or not, this is a neat plugin for adding code snippets that can easily be activated/deactivated that apply everywhere on the backend or frontend etc.
Sooner or later you will be wondering how to load custom assets (like JS and CSS files) in Oxygen.
Since Oxygen disables the theme, the recommended approach to enqueue files is by using a custom functionality plugin.
Got code that should be added to your site pages’ head and/or footer like Google Tag Manager or Google Analytics?
You can do that using either of the above two plugins or a plugin built specifically for this purpose.
This is a pretty powerful plugin using which we can visually add custom interactions like adding/removing classes to an element when events happen on another, add tooltips, countdown timers, before/after image, add custom attributes, real parallax effects, lazy load images.
One of the features of OxyPowerPack is being able to add custom data attributes. But if you are looking for a plugin that does just that and nothing else, you can get Oxygen Attributes.
A very popular plugin that enhances the UI of Oxygen with time-saving tweaks and features.
Microthemer lets you visually edit CSS by point and click. It is like Oxygen’s Selector Detector on steroids.
Has support for Sass, CSS Grid and Oxygen!
Adds the much needed missing functionality of being able to move all the styles from ID to a class and other related stuff.
Adds links in the WordPress Toolbar that shows dropdowns of all the Templates and Pages which when clicked lets you directly edit them with Oxygen.
Combine this with a code snippet for adding the toolbar in Oxygen editor and you will never have to click more than once to edit any Template or Page in Oxygen.
Adds the name of current Template/Page etc. that is currently being edited to the left of Structure button in Oxygen’s editor interface.
Editor Enhancer PRO includes this feature.
Makes it possible to use the active WordPress theme when Oxygen is active.
We can set pages to be rendered using Oxygen or the active theme on most of the site’s pages while using the other on select pages.
Lets you export and import Oxygen’s Templates, Pages, Design Sets and Oxygen Blocks as zip files.
There has not been a single time in the last 2 years of me using Oxygen when this plugin has failed me when I wanted to restore a copy of a WordPress site to another location. Just remember to re-sign the shortcodes and regenerate CSS cache after migration.
There is not a week without someone asking which is the best forms plugin in the Oxygen Facebook group.
Fluent Forms is a rapidly evolving WordPress forms plugin that is lightweight, feature-rich and comes with good documentation and support.
In addition to the above, there are several plugins built specifically for Oxygen.
Let’s take a look at these.
