WordPress Portsmouth Online Meetup – 27th March 2024 – My Favourite Contact Form

My Favourite Contact Form

Join the WordPress Portsmouth Meetup on 27th March 2024 for a discussion on ”My Favourite Contact Form”.

Just about every WordPress website has a contact form to gather information from site visitors. Some of the forms are fairly simple and generic. Others have a specific purpose.

In this month’s meetup we’ll discuss several different contact forms and consider their pros and cons.

Recommend a plugin for WordPress and AI – January 2024

Next month, January 2024, we’ll be running a session entitled: WordPress and Artificial Intelligence (AI) with a subheading of What can I use AI for today and how much is it going to cost?

I’ve got a list of over 100 AI plugins to investigate.

Would anyone care to suggest a plugin that you’ve found to be of use to include in the list of plugins to recommend?

If so, please let me know and indicate which of the following the plugin can help with.

What can I use AI for today?

  • Generate images
  • Generate content
  • Generate excerpts
  • Create custom CSS
  • Create Custom Code
  • Generate SEO meta information
  • Automatic Content & Image Tagging
  • A/B testing
  • Implement ChatBots
  • Recommend content
  • Automatic image descriptions
  • Smart focal point cropping
  • Automatic image text recognition
  • Block AI bots
  • Enhance Search
  • etcetera

Also, if it’s not completely free to use, how much does it cost?

For example Jetpack AI Assistant, which is touted by Jetpack, costs £7.50 a month when billed yearly. There’s a free trial but that runs out faster than water down a drainpipe.

WordPress and Artificial Intelligence (AI) ?

Just a quick demonstration of Artificial Intelligence in action. Here I’ve used AI Assistant ( part of Jetpack ) to rewrite the same paragraph in 10 different tones. Which of these do you prefer?
