Featured Image Generator

The  Lowdown:
If you are looking for another way to find great free creative commons license photos for your featured images this is a plugin for you. Very easy to install and use. The photos come from  http://unsplash.com and they have a pretty good selection of images though no zombies. they look to be decent quality to high quality. The plugin set a link for your featured images you can then go search for an image upload it and set it as your featured.
what you can do

Set default thumbnail size for featured image.
Select / Upload photos from your computer or hosting for editing the photos.
Photos editor tools to make your featured image looks incredible.

All in all a pretty great plugin simple easy and works just the way we like them.
Rating 5 Dragons.

IVGuard

The Lowdown:
This looks to be a premium plugin and looks to be in beta maybe after beta they will set the price.
IVGuard looks to be a pretty nice site protection plugin if a little confusing in whether it costs anything. It seems to make a backup of your site right away as you activate the plugin.
Looks like you can add multiple site although did not test that. Their dashboard is a bit confusing right now but I am sure it will improve. I found a place where it lists what they have labeled as suggestions but seems to be a list of files to have a look at. It did present a a couple false positives. All in all this looks like it will be a pretty good plugin once they get though the bugs and flow.
Rating 3 Dragons

UpDraft

suggested by Jez at https://www.jezweb.com.au/
The Lowdown:
This is a pretty decent backup plugin for those that need a straightforward backup plugin. You can set it to automatically backup daily, weekly or monthly. You can have it store locally, or FTP, Amazon S3, Rackspace or email you the file. Although emailing most backup files is pretty hard these days since they are often a few gigs in size. I am not sure about the function Jez mentioned that causes a backup just before updates. I tried this but did not get it to activate and cannot locate a setting for it but it is a great idea and if it does that such a great feature. It does seem to have a restore feature but I did not test that. All in all a pretty nice plugin

Download Directory

Create a download directory website in a minute. Allow registered users to receive update alert for new software’s version. I examined this for possible use of the Membership Coach site, but it doesn’t have everything I’m looking for. It is though, a really nice self-updating directory service for WordPress.

Back Button

A simple back button added to all post types edit page. You can filter and navigate to posts lists without worrying about updating the post and lose the posts before. This is something I’ve kind of been seeking out for some time. I have developed a conference plugin and depending on what category or session speakers are being looked at, it was always hard to place a fixed back button. This seems to do a nice job so far.

Bulk Edit WooCommerce

With this plugin, you can bulk edit WooCommerce products fields such as SKU, Catalog Visibility, Stock, Quantity, Regular Price, Sale Price, Shipping Class, Weight and Dimensions.
This bulk edit plugin allows you to edit multiple products at a time whether it’s a simple product. You can filter the products to edit using the Filter option provided by the plugin. Filters can be applied using various parameters like Type of the Product, Category of the Product, Attributes, Price, etc. You will be able to edit as many products as you want in just one step and edit fields such as SKU, Stock, Regular Price, Sale Price, Weight, Height, etc. The complete list is given below. You can even increase or decrease all prices in a category by a set percentage % or dollar value $ for quick sales or product price increases/decreases all in one step. You can even bulk add sale prices to products that do not currently have sale prices active. Also, change you can easily Regular Price by % or Flat price.
There is a premium version. So I took 1 point off for this version’s review.
