Unlimited Lists Widget 0.1.1

The Lowdown:

You want something hard try to find a widget that will allow for creation of a simple list for your sidebar.. This is a great simple plugin to create simple ordered or unordered lists in your sidebar install and place widget and start creating lists. works great and simple..

Rating 4 Dragons

 

Donate Extra 2.02

The Lowdown:

Almost as hard is choosing from the hundreds of paypal donation buttons widgets.. This one was kind of different in that it builds a special donation wall/page for those that donate and want to be recognized a nice little bonus.. This plugin works very simply and does a nice job of creating subscriptions as well as single donations.. The creation of the was is pretty nice where you can display name, note and amount of donation or any part of that. It also allows you to create a running total to display which is great if you are having a donation drive.. this can also be limited by dates so not a grand total but even just a weekly total. all in all have to say this is a pretty nice donation plugin.

Send to Kindle 1.0.2

The Lowdown:

Our listeners and clients are the best.. This plugin comes to me from one of my clients and listeners and turned out to be a great little plugin that is especially useful for those of you who do lots or writing and promotions. What does it doe well after install it add a button to your site which will allow your visitors to save your page to their Kindle for reading later or even reference material. This is a great way to keep your material in circulation.. One way i see this as being great is that if you are a writer and doing what I have seen so many times in putting out a book one chapter at a time this will allow your visitors to send that material to their kindle for reading on their time schedule and their leisure.

Corner Ad

https://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/corner-ad/

 

Requires: 3.0.5 or higher

Compatible up to: 3.5.1

Last Updated: 2013-3-25

Downloads: 394

Corner Ad is a minimally invasive advertising display that uses any of your webpage’s top corners – a position typically under-utilized by developers – and attracts users’ attention by a cool visual effect imitating a page flip. Corner Ad initially displays a partial ad, which attracts attention; when user hover the mouse over it, the ad opens to its full size while imitating a page-flip effect; once the mouse is moved away, the ad returns to its initial size.

Corner Ad can also be used for announcements, newsflashes, and basically for anything else that you consider important and want your website visitors to see. It is common nowadays that visitors quickly scan the contents of a page and often fail to notice messages that you would like them to see; Corner Ad attempts to resolve this issue.

 

Features:

  • Minimally invasive.

  • Allows the selection of which top corner area of the page (right or left) will be used to display the ad to avoid overwriting important elements like logos, menus or search features.

  • The target of the link can be selected, so it can open the new page in the same browser’s window or into a new window.

  • Configurable background color for the ad to match the web page design.

  • Automatic mirror effect.

  • Configurable time for automatic open and close actions.

  • Supports multiple ads into the same website (each ad in a different page)

  • Count the number of click for Ads.

  • The corner ad effect is made using Flash.

 

Requirements: The browser must support Flash.
