[plugin_name src=”custom-comment-notifications”] Overview:
This is a great plugin to customize the outgoing email provided by WordPress. It allows you to make custom changes to what is otherwise a bland email and sometimes not clear. You can add several variables to make the emails you get more understandable customize the subject line so they get through your spam trap and if you have multiple sites you can know at a glance which site it is from. All in all pretty good.

    The Lowdown
    This plugin has some rally great uses for your content, what it does is allow you to reveal/hid content based on several criteria, date, days of week, time, time zone odd days even days, hide during certain months or reveal. Basically just about any way you would like to share/hide/reveal your content or parts of your content on a post by post basis.

    5 Dragons for On The Road seems a little biased to me.
    On my host, the plugin didn’t function at all “oiut of the box” since by default allow furl_open is set to “no”. So I had to configure the php.ini.
    Then I could insert maps in posts as well as in journeys but viewing journeys led to an error messag. Do I need a special template? MAybe it will function with another theme but as is, it doesn’t function and there is no documentation.
    I already contacted the plugin author because the plugin does in fact look very promising!
