    I would like to request that the extension for the TablePress plugin be considered for use in the UBC WordPress CMS as many administrators like myself make schedules with Excel and this plugin would be very useful to update online content through spreadsheet data.

    Link to the extension is below:

    Thank you in advance for considering my request.

  2. Mary-Lynne Grant

    I would like to request PDF plugin (PDF Embedder) for use in the UBC WordPress administration access. I would like to easily display my papers on my site.

    Hello! I would like to request the Table Row Order Extension for TablePress. This would allow table rows to be sorted at first view (e.g., alphabetically, in reverse or randomly).

    Thank you in advance for considering this.

    Hello! I would like to request the Draw Attention plugin be added to UBC WordPress. This will allow us to make our images interactive.

    Thank you in advance for considering this!

    Hello! I would like to request the Raw HTML plugin to be added to UBC WordPress. This would prevent WordPress from destroying custom code when we transition from the text interface to the visual interface by encapsulating HTML code in [raw] *code* [/raw]. I believe this would be very helpful for most people using WordPress with custom code.

    Thank you so much for your consideration!

    We have various labs asking for Elementor, possible to help with improving the theming of content. While custom CSS is an option, most labs don’t have the resources or ability/expertise to design CSS.
