Listener Feedback

Ryan has a question about post flipping on his membership site. This is not really a plugin function you are looking for, but a way to restrict what someone can see based on their user criteria. Marcus just did a similar project, and will talk about what he did to accomplish the same thing.

WordPress Plugin Reviews From John Overall

 Junk Deleter
the Lowdown:
Well most everybody know thst WordPress collect allot of junk in the database the longer you run it. You collect post revisions, old drafts, auto drafts and sometimes some meta dta get orpaned when you change things up. Well this is an easy way to clean out that junk and more and you can even automate it to fo this weekly or monthly. **Remember before running the first time you should make a backup of your database.

The lowdown:
Well I had come across this as an oppurtunity to be able to create tips for uses in assorted areas of the site for when you turn it over to a cliient. But alas this one is not prime time ready yet. seems it has way too many errors to be ready to roll. I even tried it on a couple differnt host providers to insure it wasn’t just a server issue but still it created errors.. Will come back to it at another time.

Refered to us by Shawn DeWolk
 Share Cluster
The Lowdown:
Ok well this plugin has lots of potential if you run a network of sites, While I was a bit confused at first on how it operates. I felt the instructions could have been a bit cleared in that since it does create a custom posts type i though that was additional content. I was under the impression from first read though that you install this on a at least 2 sites and now you can easily share snippets of content across them. What it does is only seems to share the custom post type content along with any ads assigned to that content. If you have a network of sites this has some great potential for you to use one master and spread information across the network.

WordPress Plugin Reviews From Marcus Couch

Paid Memberships Pro
I just built a new project for a long standing client that required different layers of post/page protection depending on what user you logged in as. John suggested this plugin to me, and it was the PERFECT solution to what I was looking for. Though I was not specifically creating a member site, this allowed me to create a back-end customer portal that was protected from the view of the competition’s prying eyes.

Shortcodes Everywhere
Edit your site from front-end anywhere, and anything you want.Replace the current markup with the one you need.  Shortcodes Everywhere is a plugin which allows you to edit your site from the front-end, at any part you want. It worked especially well with Paid Memberships pro, which uses shortcodes to designate who sees what. This plugin combo enabled me to add membership level filters via shortcode in the sidebar and even hot-swap the site logos based upon who you are logged in as.

All in One Buttons
You could spend countless hours in Photoshop trying to create the perfect button, or create the perfect button with All In One Buttons in seconds All In One Buttons will allow you to customize the alignment, size, color, icon, animation and more. It’ll also save your buttons as WordPress shortcodes for rapid deployment on your website(s). I especially like the added icon feature that allows you to add a nice personal touch to the buttons. Overall, this is the fastest way I know of to create graphically pleasing buttons in a rapid-fire manner.
