Mammoth .docx converter

Mammoth is designed to convert .docx documents, such as those created by Microsoft Word, and convert them to HTML. Mammoth aims to produce simple and clean HTML by using semantic information in the document, and ignoring other details. For instance, Mammoth converts any paragraph with the style Heading1 to h1 elements, rather than attempting to exactly copy the styling (font, text size, colour, etc.) of the heading. This allows you to paste from Word documents without the usual mess. There’s a large mismatch between the structure used by .docx and the structure of HTML, meaning that the conversion is unlikely to be perfect for more complicated documents. Mammoth works best if you only use styles to semantically mark up your document.

The best thing is that you can get monthly as well as lifetime license for unlimited websites. So, this way, you can even use it on your client’s websites as well.

ThirstyAffiliates Affiliate Link Manager

If you are looking to supercharge your affiliate marketing, then the first thing that needs attention is “affiliate link management”. The plugin creates a new shortlink/link redirect to your long ugly affiliate link by making a pretty link with your own website URL. You can group your affiliate links into hierarchical categories. eg. placing all Amazon links within an “Amazon” category, or all software links in a “Software” category.Managing your links in ThirstyAffiliates means there is only one place to change the destination URL if required rather than having to go back and replace the link in potentially hundreds of articles. You can choose from 301 (default), 302 or 307 redirects, all of which are safe link redirects. Link redirects protect your affiliate links from being scrapped and replaced by malware in your visitor’s browser. There is also a smart uncloaking feature so if the affiliate program you are using (such as Amazon Associates) does not like your links behind a redirect, you can still use ThirstyAffiliates. Your links can be conditionally uncloaked on the front end.

Thrive Architect

If you are looking to create a conversion focused website, then landing pages play a major role. Now, you cannot depend on inbuilt wordpress page builders because it is not just enough. For including different elements on the landing page, you will need a lot of different plugin, which will make the whole process quite tiring and time consuming. Before trying Thrive Architect, we have tried other page builders like Visual composer and Elementor, but none of them was so easy and fast to operate.
