It’s no secret regarding the rapid growth of the Oxwall software nor the amount of social networking and dating websites powered by the Oxwall and Skadate platform. With that in mind questions like the ones above are bound to arise. Today we shall take a look at the top 10 plugins for Oxwall that will help you manage your Oxwall-powered social network or Skadate dating site and build a “user friendly” community.

Top 10 Plugins for oxwall

Do not get it all wrong, the plugins that are shortlisted here are not necessarily the most good-looking plugin that gives your site ultra-modern look or the most expensive or high sounding plugins rather they are what I termed “core Oxwall plugins” and a must use for every Oxwall/Skadate powered site.

N/B: please note that the plugins listed herein  are the ones that are not installed by default in your website.

A Shortlist of the Top 10 Oxwall/Skadate “Core” Plugins

  1. Smart Captcha

Plugin Preview

Is no coincident that this plugin made our top list, considering the enormity of it’s essence, it’s also no brainier that is one of the most needed plugin for every oxwall powered site.

The smart captcha plugin as the name implies, is a customizable plugin that gives your website captcha a smart look and protect your site with customizable questions that only human can answer, thereby, reducing the numbers of spam registration and prevent robots from creating spam accounts on your website.

Features of the Smart Captcha Plugin

  1. Customizable Layout: The smart captcha plugin layout can be fully customized through the admin dashboard=> plugins=> installed=> smart captcha=> settings. Areas of customization include: the color & dimension (height & Width).
  2. Custom Question: The plugin give you an option to add and delete captcha question and also provide a room for multiple answers. i.e you can add a question like: nine + 3 which have more than one answers (i.e twelve, 12).
  3. Auto-Load:If you added more than one question, the smart captcha randomize your question for each visitor. N/B: It is recommended that you add at least 10  questions and ones very difficult for robots to answer e.g. Who is the president of the United States of America or even more, provide a different link and ask the user to tell the page color of the link you provided.
  4. A Smart Look: This is probably the most less important factor to consider, but it comes quite handy if you are running a professional site. If you are “beauty freak” I can assure you that the smart captcha is a lot more flashy than you think or at least better than the oxwall default captcha.
