What they say:
This free plugin enables you to insert a multi-lingual date with the day and month spelled out, anywhere in a site where a shortcode can be used.
Normally, the dates generated for you by WordPress give the day and time when a post or was created.
This easy-to-use plugin enables you on the other hand to insert in your site a date which reflects the current date or any other date of your own choosing.
The date that gets to be displayed as a result will have the day and month fully named. This can be useful if you want to either personalize a communication to your readers or to emphasize a particular deadline.
What I say:
A simple plugin to help you enhance your date for a post.

Subscribe Form Builder by SoursopTree
Sent in by Ari Susanto
Well this is a great form creator for email subscriptions. The creation interface is pretty nice and at the moment it is only good for mailchimp at the moment but that works for me. You can determine page position and you can also set up some rules such as hide on mobile, set it via cookie to show every x number of days. set it to show only if they arrive via a search engine and more. You can even set it to show only on specific pages and posts and more. This is looking to be a great plugin

Advanced Image Sitemap
This is a sitemap generator that scans your website for all images and writes a structured XML sitemap file.
You can create template for image titles and descriptions (based on file name), add custom locations for all your images, control include in Image Sitemap your thumbnails, by their size, etc. Very useful! It allows you to exclude on an image by image basis as well.

Woo Dynamic Remarketing
This plugin automatically inserts the required tags for Google Dynamic Remarketing (DYNX). The bummer is that this plugin only works for Dynamic Display Feed type Custom and is not intended to be used with Google Merchant Center (ECOMM).
