[plugin_name src=”rss-manager”] Overview:
Looking for a way to improve the way your RSS feed looks? Well this is just what you need a simple plugin that let you go in and change the layout of how your RSS looks. You can move the layout around change the read more text cat and tag titles move them to better places. Before after text or after the title. Choose a custom thumbnail size and change placement of it. All in all this is a pretty good way of customizing your RSS feed, I found it especially useful to customize the feed layout for presentation in a newsletter.

[plugin_name src=”mailchimp-for-wp”] Overview:
Well if you are looking for a simple way to integrate Mailchimp into your website this would be what you are looking for. It is simple and straightforward for use. It allows you to choose your list and to create a simple form and if you go for the premium you can create some additional forms to use elsewhere. One great thing it does is to integrate into the comments section with a checkbox to make it easy for your visitors to add themselves to your list.

This plugin actually gives you the ability to hide plugins from the view of others. It hides them from the plugin list and admin list only. It still works in the background like normal.

[plugin_name src=”royal-tree”] Overview:
This is an amazing tree creation plugin for creating easy dynamic organizational flowcharts. Like what you see at work where the boss is on top and you’re probably way down about 4 levels or so! Hopefully not, but this is an outstanding plugin to show your boss, and maybe you’ll get moved up the tree a bit faster! Also doubles as an upside-down family tree maker. Each part of the tree with the person’s name can be linked to a page where more info is available. Best organization tree plugin I’ve seen to date.

    One possible thing to watch with the plugin hiding, is that many plugins show up if you just view page-source code. So, if you’re really wanting o hide what plugins you use, be sure to check that.
