**WordPress Plugins Reviewed by John**

Rublon 1.1.9

The Lowdown:

This plugin allow you to use a two factor login to define trusted devices. It is simple is its setup just download an app add your email and do some scanning. This is a pretty nice plugin to extra security for your website. It seem to be not tied to the IP but to the actual computer since I have multiple computers running though same IP I did a check on my other machine and once you hit the wordpress login i9t then skips to the Rublon Q-code to be scanned by your phone before being allowed to login. all in all very nice and smooth seems to work great

Rating 5 Dragons.



Genesis Subtitles 1.2

The Lowdown:

This plugin allows you to create a great subtitle for your post that is outputted as a H2 tag. It is a specific genesis plugin so if you do not have the genesis theme system it won’t help. One caveat is that you will need to use the pro themes from Genesis otherwise you will need to add a little code to your functions file. all in all it is pretty nice.

Rating 3 Dragons



Business Directory Plugin 3.1.1

The Lowdown:

This is a freemium plugin but i think they might be reaching a bit in the nickle and dime department since they want to charge for the simple paypal module. All in all though it is a nice plugin to create a listing of places or to start your own directory. You can create one that has featured listings and paid listing with the paid modules.  However if you want something like the google maps you will need to get that module.. From what I see if you want it to work its best you will need all the modules..

Dynamic Featured Image enables the option to have MULTIPLE featured images within a post or page. This is especially helpful when you use other plugins, post thumbnails or sliders that feed off Featured Images. Let’s suppose that you have a WordPress theme that uses post thumbnails on the front page, a full width slider that features post information with a high resolution image and a full size image within the post itself. Why limit yourself to one image that has to be scaled and sized according to the application? DFI allows you to add a number of featured images to each post that can be “collected” by the various theme functions. You can alter most plugins that propagate featured images with just a slight amount of code changes. Once you have configured your featured image plugins to pull from the correct source ID, you can easily take care of all your post image variations directly within the post editor.

Credit Tracker is a new solution for providing attribution credits to photographers and image creators. The plugin adds new custom fields for Image Source, Image Owner/Author, Publisher and License information. Plugins like this are a welcome relief to many professional photographers out there. Far too often, these image creators fall victim to people lazily using photography from Google Image Search results without getting a stitch of credit for their commercial or Creative Commons work. Credit Tracker is turning the tables on this negative practice by allowing proper “author” attribution. The plugin’s shortcode allows you to display all of the photo credits for the post in a clean table format.

Default Post Thumbnail Image creates a default thumbnail image to use in posts. In development this is an invaluable plugin to help test theme layouts and post display configurations. Sometimes I want to make a ton of posts and not have to go through all the effort of adding post thumbnails to each one. There are other occasions in which I may forget to add a post image, resulting in an ugly looking home page that doesn’t have a proper image within the post snippet. This plugin helps to alleviate both of those issues by letting you add a default image. When there is no image used within a post, the default image appears. Example usage might be to use your brand logo or an “image coming soon” image type. For developers of themes, perhaps an ugly bright green default image would be the best to use so that you know what posts to change. Either way, this is an excellent lazy plugin to add to any WordPress installation that uses post thumbnails.
