List.ly 

Refereed to us by Nick Kellet

https://wordpress.org/plugins/listly/

The Lowdown;

Well off the bat I dislike sites that won’t let me create an account with my own email and force me to only use social media. Well one day i believe they will regret that decision.

It is pretty decent on what you can do if you find a list on list.ly you like you can simply add it with a little short code to your site all in all not too bad.

Rating 3 dragons.

 

Content Views

referred to us by PT Guy

https://wordpress.org/plugins/content-views-query-and-display-post-page/

The Lowdown:

This plugin allows you to craete a grid display pretty simply just start choosing your filters from the categories and on down the line until you get what your after. The base plugin offer 3 options for display grid, a colapsable list and a scrollable list. If you opt for the premium version or the extra options there are a few more ways to display. Once you create your display get the short code and display anywhere your short code will work. One problem I did find was that it does not support custom post types.

Rating 4 Dragons

 Business Website Helper for WordPress

https://wordpress.org/plugins/business-website-helper/

The Lowdown:

This is a simple yet effective plugin for WordPress beginners. It does one thing and that is to help you find some basic plugins essential for good functionality. While many of the plugins they have chosen to list and promote would not be my first choice they are however still good plugs and will work well for the beginner when setting up their site.

Forum Based On Comments

Forum based on comments convert your comments in a discussion forum.
Put in a post type page (page) a shortcode, this will make the last comment of your site is displayed, the form is displayed in a forum type. This will make your comments otherwise see, possibly calling more attention of your readers to see your comments and to respond.

WP Documenter

https://wordpress.org/plugins/documenter/

Instant switching between user accounts in WordPress. This one helps to save a bit of time when switching between different users, for whatever reason. It is much easier than having to log in and out all the time.

Rating: 4 out of 5

 

Post Title Spell Check

https://wordpress.org/plugins/post-title-spell-check/

This is a simple plugin which adds a small bit of code to the WordPress title input field. Activating the plugin will allow the default WordPress title input field to be spell checked by modern browsers.

    I totally agree that we’re going to regret the social media login stuff. I resist that like the plague. It’s handing over something that probably should be controlled by the site owner, but also sets users up to be phished and trains them to expect to put in credentials on 3rd party sites.

    About the only one I half-heartedly support is Disqus, as at least it’s sole purpose seems to be forum comment.

      Thanks for the input Steve, yes that is a major reason I dislike it but the other is there is no company too big to fail remember myspace, yahoo buzz, friendster.. If those where the way people got in what happens when they close… Depending on a 3rd party can be hazardous to your business look at all the failed business after Twitter changed their model. Using a 3rd party as an option not a bad plan as I do run sites that offer the option but still create an account with a user and password they can use an alternative.
