Benefits – Benefits – Benefits

Having a review done 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. The traffic stayed, so there are great benefits to being reviewed by WP Plugins A to Z. Submit Your Plugin Here.

WordPress File Upload (freemium)

Requires:2.9.2 or higher
Compatible up to:6.5.5
Released:09 December 2013
Last Updated:15 July 2024
(4.5 star out of 5)

The Lowdown:

If you are inn need of a solution to allow file uploads for your clients this may be an excellent solution for you. I would be careful of allowing it to be used by guests as it opens a way for malicious files to be uploaded.

It is pretty easy to use and  you can determine which role can upload files, set the form via a short code on a page. You can add custom fields to clooect additional data with the file.

This is the freemium version and lacks a few good features such as unlimited files size, the ability to upload to, Dropbox, Google Drive and one drive. It also limits to one file at a time.

Overall not looking too bad.

Rating 4 Dragons


Notification – Custom Notifications and Alerts for WordPress

Requires:4.9 or higher
Compatible up to:6.5.5
Released:20 December 2011
Last Updated:27 May 2024
(4.6 star out of 5)

The Lowdown:

Replace the default emails in your WordPress website with some great custom notifications and take control of the emails your site is sending out.

With this plugin you can eliminate the default emails and create your own set of emails with custom triggers, send them out though push or email and even merge in some useful data such as user info and posts info. There are some great built in options but if that is not enought you can add ssome custom triggers of your own.

The plugin also has some great extensions available starting at about $15 to expand it out to your specific needs.

Rating 4 Dragons



Requires:5.0 or higher
Compatible up to:5.2.21
Released:11 October 2019
Last Updated:11 October 2019
(0 star out of 5)

The Lowdown:

because life can get boring sometime and you need to inject a little chaos into it. This plugin help with that task, simply install activate and work at tricking your users to click the “Y” key as once they do every link on your sit turns into a honking sound. Yes that about it and the only way out is to refresh the page.

Have fun

Rating 5 Dragons for the Chaos  effect.

ClassicPress Options

ClassicPress is a fast growing fork of WordPress that is starting to come into its own. ClassicPress is focused on Business Websites runs fast and is looking pretty good. There are a few plugins specifically for ClassicPress and all plugins for WordPress 4.9.9 work well on it. I do believe it has a future.

One thing I am looking forward to in the ClassicPress World is the expansion of the number of ClassicPress specific plugins and their own repository. Currently there are not a lot of ClassicPress specific plugins but I do know it is going to grow and I’ll have to expand this segment then. Who knows, it could take over the whole show.

This week for ClassicPress I have:
