Would you like to customize a WordPress theme without having to contact a programmer or agency for assistance? Would you like to tweak the presentation of a blog page on your own and not have to search through CSS or PHP code? Yep, me too and we’re not alone.
The WordPress community includes a lot of power users like you and me. We want to customize the layout and design of our website or blog, but we don’t want to rely on others for help. If you fall within this type of user group, the new Conductor plugin is for you. Well you and me and anyone else who wants to take back control of their WordPress website.
The Conductor plugin was recently released by my friend Matt Medeiros. His name might sound familiar, because he runs the popular podcast program The Matt Report. I was a guest of his on it about a year ago.
The Power of the Conductor Plugin
- Drag and drop customization of your WordPress website or blog
- Select custom layouts of pages, posts, and archive pages
- Easily tell Conductor which content to show and where to show it
- Choose from posts, pages, custom post types
- Display content in a list, table or grid
- Create a landing page for your top blog content
- Curate a list of “must read” content for your visitors
- Show off your categories in a unique and engaging display
- Combine the display of many types of content on 1 page
- Easily create e-commerce landing pages using popular plugins like WooCommerce
I’ll admit that I was suspect when Matt reached out to me about this new plugin. After all, in my head, Matt was a funny guy with a good radio voice. He wasn’t a plugin developer. Ok I was wrong and I’m more than happy to admit it.
Matt and his firm have created one killer plugin. Best yet, Conductor works with all of our Genesis child themes. To prove it to me, Matt installed our popular Patricia theme and did a quick demo for me to share on our website.

Remember: Conductor will work with any of our Genesis child themes.
Conductor Plugin Pricing
For most website owners and bloggers, you can grab a copy of the Conductor plugin for $99. That is less than one hour of coding time from a quality WordPress coder. And more importantly, it let’s you customize a WordPress theme on your own and anytime you want.
For developers who need usage on multiple domains, the plugin price is $497. That may seem like a lot, but if you compare that price to the time it saves you coding in CSS and PHP, it becomes cost effective quickly.
I personally think this plugin is worth it’s weight in gold and it isn’t because I think Matt is pretty darn cool. He blew my socks off when he gave me a demo of it and I’m excited because I know it will provide value to our theme buyers and blog readers.
I love a good WordPress story and I love a great WordPress product. Matt and his product grab both, which makes them super cool.
If you’re a WordPress developer and you have a new plugin that is uber cool, let me know about it!
