WordPress Plugin Reviews From John Overall

Etsy WordPress Shop

Premium Plugin Submitted by Damian

Etsy WordPress Shop Overview:

This is a premium plugin that will allow you to bring over your Etsy store to your WordPress website in live time. Whenever you make changes at Etsy theey are automatically reflected on your site. Setup was pretty easy for this and while I like that the one critique I have is that it be made easier to find the short code for the page/post creation, while there are videos many people like myself simply want the code to go and not have to sit though the video to find it. All in all I like the way it works and it looks to be a good replacement for a client I have who uses etsy.

[plugin_name src=”master-bar”] Overview:
This plugin allows the creation of a message bar at the top of your pages/posts and is a pretty extensive message bar which you can also create an alternative bar for logged in users vs non-logged in. You can place it sitewide or simple have it appear page by page. You can also use a short code to have it appear only on specific pages. The bar builder let you customize the bar in several ways, colour font, style and more. This so far is the simplist of all the bar plugins I have used and looks to be pretty good check it out.

[plugin_name src=”ultimate-profile-builder”] Overview:
Ultimate Profile Builder by CMSHelpLive lets you create and manage profiles on your WordPress site! You can define custom user roles like Authors, Actors, Tennis Players or anything you want. It will also allow visitors to register on the site, fill out custom fields specific to user roles and upload profile images. Their profiles can be edited by the users anytime by logging into the profile area of the site. You can display member profiles as list or box view. The profile view will show image thumbnail, profile snippets and user posts contribution.
All user activity takes place on the front end, and logging in and editing does not requires users to go into the dashboard area. This is especially important if you want your users to have a consistent experience across the website.

    Hi Marcus and John,
    I would like to comment about Ultimate Profile Builder, it was a coincidence that you had this plugin reviewed this week as I was just looking for something like this.
    Just wanted to say that I wouldn’t entirely agree with the 5 out of 5 rating, it is useful but it’s not localized so I have to dig into the code to translate it, I think this is very important in a plugin.
    There is no way (or I can’t find a way) to view the custom fields already added from the admin dashboard.
    I also missed some hooks to be able to add some other fields on the registration form to be able to decide what role the user should have depending on the value of one of the fields.
