Standalone vs. WordPress
Recently we have made Buttonizer available for other platforms besides WordPress. With our standalone, you can start using Buttonizer on any site or platform, such as WordPress, Shopify or Wix. With our WordPress plugin alone this was not possible. It was only possible to use our WordPress plugin on websites created with WordPress.
To be clear, all WordPress subscriptions will be grandfathered, but no new WordPress-only subscriptions can be started. The WordPress plugin is more like a limited self hosted version while the standalone version is fully hosted and managed by our team. Nothing will change for the users of our WordPress plugin as your buttons will show up as usual.
Therefore, if you have been using our WordPress plugin and you would like to use our new standalone, you should deactivate the Buttonizer plugin for WordPress. You can do this in your WordPress environment where all your plugins can be found. Don't forget to export the data of your current buttons to the standalone version. If you integrate our standalone while our plugin is enabled, the Buttonizer for WordPress editor will crash as it receives data from our standalone version. This will be fixed as soon as possible.
Wy should you use our standalone?
Most styling options have been made free;
- Use Buttonizer on any site, whether it’s WordPress, Shopify, Drupal or Wix;
- Buttonizer is faster, using our own CDN (Content Delivery Network) and API
- We’ll keep track of button-conversions for you;
- Manage all your Buttonizer instances from one single account;
- You don't have to worry about updates and being on the latest version as we handle those via our server. So bugs are patches without you even noticing;
- With our standalone it's possible to change the URL of the site easely via the site settings. With our WordPress version it's a bit harder and requires you to export data from your development environment and import it into your production environment.
Integrate the Buttonizer standalone
<footer> of your website, and if you have a WordPress website you can install a plugin for this, if you don't have one already, and then place the Buttonizer script in it. You’ll also be able to migrate Buttonizer from WordPress to our new standalone.
If you don't already have a plugin for the header and footer of your website, you can watch this video to see what plugin you can use for this and where to place the integration code.
