**WordPress Plugins Reviewed by John**

 LinkedIn Auto Publish 1.0

The Lowdown:

Well I think I finally found what I have needed for Linkedin sharing. This plugin allows you to share your posts with linkedin as easily as wordbooker does for facebook and twitter tools does for twitter. If however you want it all in one plugin this does offer a premium version that offers that and the ability to republish back posts. It looks to be a pretty good plugin.

Rating 4 Dragons



Local Business SEO 0.1.4

The Lowdown:

Looking for a way to improve your local SEO then this may help out here is what is does. The plugin uses the information schema and incorporates the meta data into your websites footer using the wp_footer() hook form WordPress. Setup is pretty easy and takes only a few minutes and may help your local search.

Rating 4 Dragons



Coupon Creator 1.41

The Lowdown:

Looking for a way to place a coupon onto your website, this simple plugin will allow you to create a great looking coupon that stands out on the page so your viewers don’t miss it. You can set an expiration date so it disappears from the site and your do not have to remove it. If you like you can upload an image instead of using text.  all in all a pretty good coupon plugin.

Admin Social Shares

Requires: 3.1 or higher

Compatible up to: 3.6.1

Last Updated: 2013-9-10

Downloads: 445


Admin Social Shares is a great plugin that displays how many social shares, likes and gestures of pleasure your posts and pages have received. It displays them neatly in the post list screen so that you can keep tabs on your most popular content in the social scene. This is an admin only plugin that works really well out of the gate. It provides an easy way to report regularly updated social shares to your authors, client and contributors. You can even use it as an internal scorecard among your authors to see who gets the most social approval.

WP No Base Permalink

Requires: 3.5 or higher

Compatible up to: 3.6.1

Last Updated: 2013-9-4

Downloads: 96

WP No Base Permalink optionally removes the base function from your category or tags in your permalinks. The “base” is always a dead ringer for identifying an off-the-rack WordPress site and something that my development project users can’t stand. It is both Multisite and WPML compatible as well. Previously I had used two different plugins to accomplish this task, but now I can remove or rename the tag and category bases with just one plugin. If this benchmarks as a faster solution when compared to the simultaneous load time of the other 2 plugins I use, I can think of at least 50 domains I will use it on.

TSP Authors Note

Requires: 3.5.1 or higher

Compatible up to: 3.6.1

Last Updated: 2013-9-7

Downloads: 68

TSP Authors Note allows you to add author’s notes and after-thoughts to your blog posts and pages. This pairs with the plugin’s author box output, but the new “notes” can be added via shortcode. This enables you to go back and add your own “I told you so” passages to older posts, or the opportunity to highlight new findings, specific comments or anything else you need to reflect a new perspective on an old post. I found the plugin to be quite useful for a friend that does a lot of interviews about start-ups. He can use this for making notes on people’s later successes and milestones they faced in business along the way.
