Easy Social Feed

https://wordpress.org/plugins/easy-facebook-likebox/
The easiest and most user-friendly plugin to customize the Instagram feed, i.e., displayed photos, galleries, and videos, the Facebook feed, i.e., posts, links, status, photos, videos, and events, and Facebook and page plugins. I revamped this plugin and used Facebook and Instagram apps to help WordPress users show their pages and account feeds on WordPress. It has over 70,000 active users.

Guardian Angel

My client wanted to convert a high-fidelity user experience design into WordPress, involving some advanced animations and a high score on Google PageSpeed Insights (PSI). I created the HTML from the design and converted it to a WordPress custom theme using Advanced Custom Fields. It has a score of over 90 for both desktop and mobile on Google PageSpeed Insights.

WPOptin

https://wordpress.org/plugins/wpoptin/
The top bar, PopUp, slide-in, and welcome mat are made easy by the WPOptin plugin. It is the easiest and beginner-friendly option plugin to grow the email subscribers list, sell more, collect more phone numbers, increase social traffic, and get more leads faster. I created this plugin from scratch and uploaded it to wordpress.org. It has more than 200 active users.

Floating Links

https://wordpress.org/plugins/floating-links/
The Floating Links plugin displays social sharing icons and fancy floating back-to-the-top and bottom links along with going to the next post, previous post, and random post links on post detail pages. It's tested and works with custom post types, too. This was my first plugin which I created from scratch and uploaded first time to wordpress.org. It has over 500 active users.

Easy TikTok Feed

https://wordpress.org/plugins/easy-tiktok-feed/
The easiest and most beginner-friendly TikTok feed plugin to display SEO-friendly, responsive, and highly customizable videos from your TikTok account on your WordPress site.

The perfect way to monetize your TikTok videos on your website is through Google Adsense and affiliates.

Home & Roost

https://homeandroost.co.uk/
My client wanted to create some custom sections using Generate Press builder, which includes some animations, custom icons, cross-browser, and cross-device compatibility. I created them exactly according to my client's requirements and pushed changes to the live environment in a timely manner.

I got very great feedback from the client with a 5-star rating.

Energy In Action

https://energyaction.ca/
A WordPress website about Canada's energy sector provides Canadians with information about keeping Canadian energy in action.

I developed the website without any pre-made design using Elementor builder. It was a simple landing page that included animations, UI/UX involvement, and cross-browser compatibility.
