Benefits – Benefits – Benefits

Having a review by us or having an interview helps the traffic to the developers website. As was bought to our attention recently when we did an interview and reviewed a plugin for a developer who sent us snap shots of their traffic before and after the shows and the traffic stayed so there is some great benefits to being reviewed by WP Plugins A to Z.

The Plugins directory is getting a new look and is in beta now it looks like. I don’t think I like it much as it seems harder to find the information for the plugins. It is probably due to how the layout is changing massively and I’ll probably adjust to it like I have so many other major changes forced upon us over the years. Remember the first time the admin menu was changed with fly-out menus.

Possibly my most useful podcast
Thanks so much John and Marcus, for all the work you put in on this Podcast. There are so many WordPress plug-ins it’s really difficult keeping up to date. I listen regularly to your podcast whilst driving and you often suggest plug-ins for purposes I haven’t event considered but that are just what I need. Your friendly, chatty style not only makes your program a pleasant listen, it also makes it easier for me to remember your great suggestions when the occasion arises.

The Lowdown:
This plugin helps you build a Table of contents for your site by creating a menu based on your post and pages hierarchy. You can add this table of contents to a post, page or widget to make it a bit easier for your users to find what they might be looking for. One of the best ways I see this being used is if you have a site that has the categories or pages with parent and child categories. It has lots of great setting to be able to customize the layout for the Table of contents so it can make for a pretty great tools for also creating a user friendly site map.

If you use table and want an easy to make them responsive this is a plugin for you. it has a WYSIWYG editor in the back-end for creation of table as well as the ability to import table from your CSV file. With lots of options on how to configure your tables and the use of custom post typos for table creation you can use this for the creation of unique product table or other types of lists. all in all not a bad plugin.
