It’s Episode 252 and we’ve got plugins for Advertising, Tracking Site Revisions, Admin Area Cleanup, Dropbox Integration and an excellent new plugin for conditional logic shortcodes. It’s all coming up on WordPress Plugins A-Z!
Did I grab your attention? Perfect you are ready for the message.
This is a final plea to all our fans, listeners and friends out that that would like to see WP Plugins A to Z move on to the next level.
When a funeral happens many people who have known the decedent come out then offer lots of sentiment and offers of help. It’s time to test that sentiment since this is not a funeral but a look at how those who would attend a funeral can help in there here and now.
WP Plugins A to Z is not going to die but it looks like it will pull back a bit, while I really enjoy doing this show and have high hopes for the website and what could be possible for it I will have to pull back a bit on it. I have been running a Kickstarter for the past 26 days in the hopes that my friends and audience would jump forward to support the show. But it looks like I over estimated the support for the show.
This is the final push to see if a miracle can be pulled off and make this a reality. This is an outreach to all my listeners, and social media connections to see if we can make the kickstarter a success.
From my count I have approximately three thousand 3k, RL and online friends, followers and listeners to my podcast, twitter and Facebook feed.
Here is the question. How many of my RL and online friends, followers and listeners to my podcast would attend my funeral or at the minimum send flowers?
If only 20 percent of you would attend my funeral and or send flowers I would expect that would be about $50 each. So instead of coming to my funeral or sending flowers you would instead go to my Kickstarter page and pledge $50 or more we could obtain the goal of 30k and turn this podcast into the great show it can be.

Downgrade to Any WordPress Plugin or Theme VersionThere are some rare cases where WordPress themes and plugins need to be running at an older version number, due to various technical reasons like the server’s PHP version, inter-plugin dependencies, deprecated or older code in the current frontend theme.
There are also cases where the desired functionality for a particular website cannot be fully achieved unless using an older version of a plugin, or the site’s theme performed and loaded much faster in its previous versions.
For this kind of situations, you need to find the desired theme/plugin, search through its downloads history and download an older version. If sometimes you realize you need even an older release, you have to repeat the whole process and end up losing more time, keeping you from doing something else.
This process is now automated and can be carried out via WP Rollback, a plugin that can make this entire process as simple as clicking three links: (1) selecting the theme/plugin to downgrade, (2) choosing the version to go back to, and (3) pressing a final “Rollback” button.

Unmasking Free Premium WordPress PluginsWordPress has a large repository of free plugins (currently 30,000+) that can add almost any functionality to your blog. However, there is still a market for premium plugins. Premium plugins are especially popular when they help blogs make money: eCommerce, SEO, affiliate and customer management, and so on.
Such plugins may be really great and well worth their price, but not many webmasters are ready to pay for plugins, especially when they can find “free” or “nulled” versions of the same plugins on the Internet. All they need to do is search Google for [<plugin-name> free download].
Getting something valuable for free may sound great, however, in most cases, you won’t get what you expect. After all, you should ask yourself the question, why would someone spend their time to steal software, and then post it to various sites and forums where they can’t even count on any advertising revenue? Usually, the answer is that they expect to take advantage of the sites that install the software they post. How? By adding some undisclosed functionality to the stolen plugins like backdoors, ads, hidden links, and SPAM.
In this post, we’ll talk about “patched” malicious premium plugins. We’ll talk about what they do, how they work, and about websites that build their businesses around stolen WordPress themes and plugins. Read original article here…
