AdPlugg WordPress AdPlugin
sent in by – Colin Krawll
This is a pretty interesting ad plugin for wordpress in that it uses SaS for ad creation and delivery to your site. You ad are not kept local on the site you will need an account at adplugg.com to create the ads. If you only go for the free version you can only use image ads but at $10 a month plus and overages of ad views you gain access to be able to use ad bars top and bottom (these are cool) text ads, flash ads, video and third party ads and more.
They have stats for you junkies out there, you create the ads and then place them on your site using widgets. This looks to be a pretty good plugin if you don’t mind giving up controls of your ads to a third party. The biggest draw back I see is that you are setting you site up for another 3rd party call out to the web to deliver stuff and one thing I have been aware of latly is that the more 3rd party call you have the longer you page takes to load.
If you don’t mind that then this is exactly what you need if you do I would suggest wppro admanager which gives you most of what they offer except the bar ads and everything stays on your site.

This is a plugin for tracking the number of revisions on your site for posts and pages as well as limiting the number kept. This is important as many of you will know because as time goes on those revision can stack up and really how many do you need. If your like me and working on a post it is not uncommon to save a draft a dozen or more times before publishing it. And all those saves mean another revision and they can take up allot of space in your database which can create issues.
You can set a global limit and also set a limit on a per post basis, this is a pretty simple and easy plugin the type we really like install activate and set the limits and you done.

Well this plugin was not what I though but turned into something even better I was hoping for a way to include my dropbox image to use in posts but what I found was still incredible.
Once you connect this to your drop box it creates it own folder which you can allow people to upload files to, this could be an easy way to get people to send you files as well as you can also setup a spot for people to browse the files and directory to access downloads.
You can also create sub directories and limit access there, prevents non logged in users from uploading or you can allow anonymous uploads
One of the beautiful things here is the files are in your dropbox which you manage from your computer with ease.
I can see lots of use for this plugin for me with all the files I need to collect and share.

from Marbella, Spain, enables the use of [if] shortcodes to work with conditional logic based on post meta or taxonomy terms on posts and pages. With conditional logic for taxonomy terms, you can use names, slugs or term_ids. For example: [if taxonomy=”category” slug=”cars”]Content to show[/if]
