Interview Show 27 with Alex Demchak of XHYNK.com and his plugin Content Mask

Today’s interview is with Alex Demchak from Third River Marketing. His plugin is Content Mask, which Marcus reviewed in Episode 340.

This plugin allows you to embed nearly* any external content on to your own WordPress pages or posts. The end result is fairly similar to setting up a Domain Mask, but the content is embedded into the front end of your website and is fully contained inside your WordPress permalink ecosystem.

Very useful for landing pages or adding content the current theme doesn’t allow.

PROS:

  • Easy to use 2-Step UI
  • You don’t need to set up domain masking
  • Content is embedded in to your website

*You need to have a license to use the content. You can 301 redirect to it if you’re not allowed to embed or download the content.

Find Content Mask on the WordPress Repository. Alex’s other work can be found at xhynk.com

Interview Show 25 with Martin Stewart from CorgDesign.com

Interview with Martin Stewart from CorgDesign.

Their website features three of his plugins:

  • Minimum Featured Image Size. Sometimes other site users upload tiny images, which causes them to display incorrectly or at low quality. This plugin forces them to upload properly sized images. It also works for custom posts, including WooCommerce galleries. Your images need to meet both the width and height requirement. If your image fails to meet these, the publish button is disabled and a warning message will be displayed.
  • WooHoo Lite, WooCommerce. Martin created this so clients could customize the WooCommerce site on their own, bypassing the need for a developer to help customize the design. Many things can be changed, e.g. categories, tags, breadcrumbs, pictures, etc. Pro lets you customize emails and admin notifications, also shipping price dependent on quantity. It puts all customization in one spot instead of all over back end coding. Bypasses needing a developer for customizing.
  • Visual Sitemap. This plugin lets you choose what pages are shown on the sitemap, each page’s icon and colours. The style sheets can also be edited. The icons used are from Font Awesome.

Find his work at CorgDesign.com.

Reminder: If you’re a plugin developer and you’d like to appear on the show, you can schedule an interview, donate your plugin for an upcoming contest, or submit your plugin for review.

Interview Show 24 with Omar from RexTheme

Interview 24 with Omar Faruque Simanta  from RexTheme on Best WooCommerce Product Feed Manager.

This plugin is for e-commerce store owners on multiple platforms looking to make more revenue by expanding. It generates a product feed to be used with all of your e-commerce stores so you only have to update information once, which is a huge time saver.  You can install the plugin to the site where your items are and use the product feed to add it to any other marketplace you use (Google Shopping, eBay, etc). If you were to change everything manually, without the product feed, you would have to add it in each place.

Another plugin on their site is Social Booster, which re-shares your WordPress posts to other social medias.

Find the plugin here: https://rextheme.com/best-woocommerce-product-feed/

Reminder: If you’re a plugin developer and you’d like to appear on the show, you can schedule an interview, donate your plugin for an upcoming contest, or submit your plugin for review.

Interview Show 20 with James Cantoni from WP compress

Today's interview is with James Cantoni from WP compress and VC splitter.Today’s interview is with James Cantoni from WP Compress and VC Splitter about his plugin WP Compress.

WP Compress offers multiple compression modes, secure cloud backups, image resizing and more to slash your image file sizes and speed up your website. Compress and optimize images to shrink file size, improve load times and boost page speed scores in just one click.

Since the beta in October, several things have improved based on user feedback. They have improved speeds, added automation, and made some general improvements. There are three optimization levels: Lossless (which keeps as much quality as possible), Ultra (which makes files as small as possible) and Intelligent (which tries to find a middle ground)

What makes it different:

  • Ease of use
    • To install: sign up, download, and enter api.
    • Typically no more than 3-5 settings.
    • Automation settings to make life easier
  • Affordability
    • Other compression sites charge much more. WP Compress starts at $5/mo and goes up to $15/mo.
  • Automation
    • Compresses images at a set time (or times) daily, instead of compressing on upload which can interrupt you.

Features

  • Resizing of larger images (default setting resizes any large images to 2048 pixels or less, can be set lower)
  • prevents over-compression of images, has unlimited (no time limit)restore function and backups
  • Nearly everything is one-click (bulk, individual, restore, bulk restore, settings)
  • Backups are saved securely in cloud in case you want to restore the images
