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.

Today I have 4 great plugins for you.
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.

What they say about it:
The new Moovly WordPress Plugin allows for the easy generation of branded video content from posts, using Moovly’s API. WordPress users now no longer have to write long pieces of code to automate the creation and personalization of videos. Our powerful new plugin allows for the easy creation of interactive forms based on templates made in Moovly. Simply paste the short plugin code on the desired web page, connect it to your Moovly account and your video creation set up is ready to launch!
Create a new project in Moovly Studio, our advanced HTML5 cloud-based video editor and add your branding and colour schemes to a template of your choice. The template’s variable fields will show as forms on your WP page where you can write personal messages, upload images and upload videos that will replace the ones originally in your template. Personalization and automation all the way!
There are three types of video automation provided by Moovly.
Template based: Our new Plugin gives WordPress Admins the ability to create interactive forms on their website. These forms can then be transformed into professional themed videos by Moovly’s API, such as branded video testimonials by clients. Suitable forms can be easily created in Moovly, with the short code copied to the users webpage.
Data based videos: Generate a series of videos based on a list or database. For every record, a separate video will be generated automatically. A quick and low-cost method of creating mass personalized videos or product videos for a website. Eg; connect a csv-file with data to a template and generates hundreds of personalized messages to send to your customers, colleagues or partners.
Live feed videos: Data feeds coming from Twitter, RSS feeds, measurements or other sources can automatically be converted into videos. Choose a template, define the variables, connect the source and generate videos as soon as data is published. This gives bloggers, news sites and other RSS feeds the ability to personalize and automate their news feed into video, creating more engaging content. Moovly’s Plugin has the capabilities of allowing any WordPress admin to convert their news, twitter or blog text into a short branded video, again using a template created in Moovly. After filling in the template fields, your personalised video will be rendered in a matter of minutes.

User-friendly, clean and simple form for adding adverts from the frontend. Customers need to be logged in to add an ad.
Registration page view can be chosen from the two following options:

After the simple registering process the user may edit his profile and change or fill in additional fields like first and last name, phone, avatar, short description or website URL.

The next plugin I have for you is:
I may have talked about this one in the past but its always good to bring things back from time to time if used allot. This plugin is used to help you create redirects easily and to manage them. You can manage 301 redirect and track any 404 errors so you can create the proper redirects for them or fix errors you may be having.
I have been using it on and off for a few years now and it comes in handy when upgrading a site or moving and old site to a new domain or html to WordPress (yes there are still html websites out there).

The last plugin I have here today is:
This plugin converts your Gravity forms submissions to a very useful PDF helping you create a beautiful printable form submission that holds together all the formatting you have done to that form. This plugin come with 4 free template that will suit most needs and if that does not work customize your own or buy one from the developers, they have several pre-made one or have them create a custom one for you.
my use of this plugins fit perfectly into the project I was working on using one of the included themes.

Adding a new segment just for ClassicPress. Since the release of Gutenberg, ClassicPress has garnered a lot of attention.

John’s Plugins: Moovly WordPress Plugin – 4, TerraClassifieds – 3, Redirection – 5, Gravity PDF – 5
End of show thought, it seems I have been blocked at WordPress.org possibly for reviews I had been leaving on plugins over there the past year. Here is the results of my request for clarity:
