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.

I have a great set of plugins for you today!

To start off I have a couple plugins that I have yet to use but thought you might want to know they exist. Keep in mind the ratings are based off the descriptions on their site and using their demo if available.

Live Chat & Talk

What they say:
The 3CX Live Chat & Talk plugin allows your website visitors to chat and call your company in real-time. No need to call your 800 number – they can connect with a single click. Connect visitors to your call centre or sales team and watch conversion rates skyrocket! Calls are forwarded to your phone system free of charge using WebRTC technology.

Keep all your communications on one platform and save admin time, learning curve and monthly subscriptions! Your agents will love it and so will your customers!

The plugin is free, the calls and chats are free – all you need is 3CX Phone System.

It does seem to be complex to use and you need the 3CX phone system. Could be a useful plugin if your business is big enough for it.

CoolClock – a Javascript Analog Clock

https://wordpress.org/plugins/coolclock/

Version:4.2
Requires:4.8.1 or higher
Compatible up to:5.2.3
Released:09 December 2012
Downloads:56082
Last Updated:19 June 2019
Ratings:

(4.9 star out of 5)

The Lowdown:
This plugin got overlooked when I was looking to set up clocks in a current project. While I had settled on a clock plugin I was having some issues with conflicting jquery coming from the clock plugin and instead of debugging the plugin and I decided to double check to see if I missed a better plugin and I did.

This plugin offers up the ability to add multiple short coded in a page or widget so you can have multiple time clocks. It has some very great looking skins for the clock face and a bonus of displaying he digital time in the middle of the clock face. This is useful for when you have clocks from time zones all over the world and people will ned to know if its AM or PM for the time zone they are looking at.

A great plugin that sets up well and have no jquery issues.

(4.1 star out of 5)

The Lowdown:
If you have a few people working on content for your site you may want to have a look at this plugin. It allows you to set of an edit flow for your content from the point of conception to completion with a calendar of when it is due, using custom statuses to determine where it is at.

It offer up the ability to add editorial comments holds the editorial metadata so you can review what is happening, you can organize your users into groups so you know who is responsible for what and more.

This is a pretty nice way to gain control of your content flow if you have more than yourself working on the content.

ClassicPress Options

Since the release of Gutenberg, and it fallout ClassicPress has garnered a lot of attention. This is a fork of WordPress and is focused on Business Websites and is looking pretty good.

This weeks ClassicPress plugin is:

Registration Honeypot

https://github.com/johnalarcon/registration-honeypot

The Lowdown:
The Registration Honeypot plugin adds a hidden input to the ClassicPress registration form. If the input contains any data when the form is submitted, the account will not be created. There are no settings – just activate and watch account spam dwindle.

Rating 5 Dragons

Side note I noticed that when you are doing a search using the repository it show you right away if the plugins are compatible with your version of Classic Press. You can also search with the tag “ClassicPress” to find plugins made to work in ClassicPress

    Thanks for the review of MembershipWorks! We offer a free version of our membership software for up to 50 accounts in the system should anyone want to test out our service. Developers appreciate our service because we can provide ongoing phone and email support as well as training for their clients to keep the developer out of the loop. We provide our software as a service (SAAS), so we are a third party, but many organizations appreciate relying upon our service to host their member data and member management functions as opposed to hosting and managing that key functionality themselves. We are happy to do demos for anyone interested in learning more.
