It’s Episode 315 and we’ve got plugins for Emails per Product, Geo-Mapping, WooCommerce Disclaimers, Quote of the Day, Plugins in the Customizer and In Post Advertising. It’s all coming up on WordPress Plugins A-Z!!
This show I interviewed James Cantoni the founder of VCSplitter.com . They have built an A/B split testing plugin that integrates into the visual composer plugin for WordPress. This add-on help make the process of doing split testing affordable and easy for the person who needs to keep their budget intact.
In Episode 310 I reviewed their Pro version of the plugin review below:
VC Splitter Pro
Freemium Plugin from $10 a month
sent in by James Cantoni
This is a plugin that will allow you to do A/B split testing on your content easily if you are using visual composer. At 3 levels of purchase you can go for the free which allows you to create the testing items between buttons, heading and images, buy it on code canyon and get the added features of text testing, tracking and a stats dashboard, or from their site where you get multi column and row testing, mobile testing.
if you are in need of A/B testing and using visual composer this looks to be a plugin for you

This Interview covers some great screencast usage of the plugin and what it does for you. I reviewed this plugin on Episode 302 WP Plugins A to Z The plugin uses a short code to display the information or using a widget. RePubHub bring into your website syndicated articles that are wrapped in a embed and you can wrap your ads around the articles. This system is free since they display advertisements in the embed information.
My review of the plugin
This is a pretty easy way to add trending news and or new from specific sources to your website via a sidebar widget. You can adjust the settings to drill down to specific categories and regions and limit the number of articles to appear. It is a pretty good way to get additional content to your site that is relevant.

What Dan had to say about the plugin:
Yesterday we released a new WordPress plugin that reinvents how content syndication is done, and we’d love your feedback/review.
RepubHub Headlines Widget is at https://wordpress.org/plugins/repubhub-headlines-widget/ , and a two-minute video about it is at https://youtu.be/uoNcvB1S-m4 .
The plugin adds a widget that displays the most recent trending headlines from the many world-class publications participating in our syndication network. You specify which category of headlines (health, politics, sports, etc) to display and you can easily exclude/include specific publications. When the widget is activated, the plugin simultaneously creates a hosting page on your site which displays the full articles on your own site, keeping your traffic onsite. The single hosting page displays an infinite number of different articles, depending on which widget headline the reader clicked to get there.
The website editor can leave the widget to automatically update the article selection without any curation, or the editor can easily curate throughout the day using a few curation tools that are visible on the front end just to editors and admins.
The service is free, because ads are inserted into the iframe containing the articles which compensate the content provider and us. The republishing website monetizes the new page views with their usual ads above, below and to the sides of the article iframe.
Would love any feedback to email@example.com and any publicity you could give the plugin. Thanks!
Nikola Bojkov Embed Social a plugin for connecting several social networks into WordPress.
This is a service that allows you to embed images from your Facebook into your WordPress website. It comes in a couple tastes free and pro version. The plugin is focused around embedding images from Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
This allows you to share those images easier with less grief, by using this service you can upload to your Facebook and get all their stats and not have to re-upload them to your website.
This was created while working to solve and problem in a site they were working that was requiring them to upload to multiples places.
The advantage of this service is that once it its installed you do not have to worry about the changes in Facebook rendering it useless. Since it is a third party service, they maintain all the connections at their end. The plugin is simply the API connection.
Thanks to Nikola Bojkov for appearing you can check out their plugin and service at:

Posts Table with Search & Sort
This is the free version of the plugin I gave it a quick spin to get a feel for their plugin before tackling the premium version. It is pretty straight forward and can be of benefit if you need a quick table for your users to sort your data. You can sort by clicking the columns or do a keyword search. It does not have any other settings but you can add to the short code to build out some more specific tables. The pro version looks to have more and I’ll be covering that in an upcoming show.
