Luxembourg – November 27, 2020 – FLATsite, the all-in-one platform for building and managing static websites, announced the launch of its first WordPress plugin. Named FLATsite Serverless Search, the plugin grants users access to search static sites without the need for a database. In addition to searching, there is an automatic search replacement feature. As well as being responsive, the software is compatible with almost all current WordPress themes.
Built for all static websites, the FLATsite Serverless Search plugin adds to FLATsite’s repertoire of excellence and innovation. One of the main differences between FLATsite and other static site generators is access to WordPress’ backend which simplifies content management. A second key distinguishing feature is the step-by-step approach for static deployment thus reducing, if not eliminating, the need for any technical know-how.
Other advantages include a built-in WordPress staging area to preview posts before launch, and FLATsite’s compatibility with myriad plugins, such as Ecwid ecommerce, Infinite scroll, Yoast SEO, etc. As the company continues to invest in headless WordPress technology, customers can expect innovative technologies to come on board for static sites.
Two projects currently under development are FLATsite serverless forms and FLATsite for other popular content management systems. In the meantime, FLATsite Serverless Search plugin “guarantees better user experience for search when compared to other static sites that lack this feature”. The plugin is now available for installation on WordPress.org’s Plugins page.
FLATsite allows its users to access all the functionalities of a WordPress website (backend features) but publish in static or flat form. Known as headless WordPress website management, this separation of WordPress’ backend from its frontend benefits you as pages load faster, which should result in lower bounce rates. Using FLATsite to access WordPress also eliminates the need for databases and strengthens your website against hacks.
