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.

What they say:
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 personalized video will be rendered in a matter of minutes

Pulling in Google and Facebook reviews into your site can be a challenge and there is also the issue of showcasing them in a way that enhances your site.

It checks automatically for new ones and adds them so you can get all going forward. With the premium version you can start importing from Facebook, Yelp, TripAdvisor and more with just some setup.

5 star review iTunes
Great Information on plugins.
I don’t find all the plugins applicable (not using WooCommerce), but generally in a month there will be 1 to 3 great plugins that I will explore to see if they will fit into my sites … also the discussion of various plugins plants seeds in my mind of what could be used in websites. I just wanted to mention about your last contest and why I didn’t enter … I live on Bowen Island just off the coast of West Vancouver and while the plugin sounded great the maps were for the USA … don’t live there … not sure I want to visit there anymore. I would have entered if there was an option to get the map for Canada or even BC instead of the USA. Would love to contribute to your podcast, but currently all but one of the websites I manage are for non profits and I work on them for free … hopefully in the future I will get some paying clients that will allow me to expand. So unfortunately all you can get from me is an iTunes review … 5 dragons! Keep up the great work … love the new format and sounds.

The last plugin I have here today is:
Gravity Forms is the best form plugin out there in my opinion and yes it is a premium plugin all the way… But it has so many add-ons developed by authors that extend this plugin. One of the reasons why I like it so much. I recently had need for a very customized form to have to send out 2 versions of it. One was to go to admin and the other to the person filling it out. The person filling it out was not to get a few fields while the admin needed them all.
This plugin makes it an easy task to determine which fields are sent where. It a free download and is a plugin that just works.
Rating 5 Dragons.
