Phyllis from Los Angeles has a question about WP Accessibility. There are a number of different things developing around WP Accessibility. First, you can try out plugins like That will give you a good start, but as the plugin authors note, The plug-in is intended to help with deficiencies commonly found in themes and to solve some issues in WordPress core. It can’t correct every problem (by a long shot), but provides tools to fix some issues, supplement the accessibility of your site, or identify problems. Another thing to do is get active in the new community, where they are working to make WordPress better for everyone to use, including in the new 4.0 version of WordPress.

Adsanity (premium Plugin)

The Lowdown:
While working on a new project the client found and purchased this plugin to manage their advertising, ranging in price from $29 for a single use to $129 for a developer it is well within the affordable range. This plugin uses custom posttypes and has some great uilt in ad sizing, you can also use your external ad networks like google ads to be displayed.
Set up widgets, create ad groups, you use widgets to display the ads either singly or display groups, or you can use short codes from the editor or customize your own. You can even use template tags with a little php code.
This looks to be a pretty nice ad manager

Media Grid (Premium plugin)

While looking for a portfolio type presentation plugin on a particular project we were having issues discovering something that would make the presentation easy and simple. This plugin does that in a an excellent way. It allows you to create all types of content for it, videos, links, images, audio and even social shares. It allows you to create some great descriptions that will popup in an overlay and you get some great controls over that overlay with an addon. The controls and what you can do make this a great premium plugin at only $16

Private Content Login Redirect

Do you post private content? Are you sending those links to your users with private content access?

WordPress by default redirects all non-logged users to a 404(content not found) page when they follow a private post or private page link.Instead of showing a 404 page, this plugin simply redirects those users to the login page.After successful login, it automatically redirects users with private content access to the private content link they followed.
